Kelsey Grammer's Wife Is Young Enough To Be His Daughter

Frasier star Kelsey Grammer is arguably quite the ladies man, having had three wives before his current one, Kayte Walsh. Although Grammer and Walsh have been together for almost a decade, fans were scandalized when they first started dating, given that she's so much younger than him. The couple married in 2011, shortly after his divorce from Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Camille Grammer. Walsh, who is British, was working as a flight attendant when she met Grammer on a flight to London in 2009, per Daily Mail. The two shared a "magical night" together, as Grammer later told Jimmy Kimmel (via Daily Mail), and the rest is tabloid and reality TV history. Just months later, they were engaged.

Walsh has said that she regrets the way she and Grammer began their relationship. She told Oprah Winfrey in 2012 (via ABC News), "I'm not proud of the way we started out. Because he was in a marriage." Grammer also had two young kids with Camille at the time, daughter Mason, born in 2001, and son Jude, born in 2004, causing many to further judge the relationship at the time. The age gap didn't help, for sure. Let's take a look.

Kelsey Grammar has seven children with four women

Kelsey Grammer's divorce from Camille Grammer was a contentious one, and it all played out on the first season of Bravo's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. Adding fuel to the fire was the fact that Kelsey's then-mistress was so young — there is a 26 year age difference between the two of them. When they got engaged, Kelsey Grammer was 55 to Kayte Walsh's 29, per People. Grammer and Walsh now have three young children together, including Faith, Kelsey Jr., and Auden. 

While people often joke that Walsh could be her husband's daughter, they're not wrong. Grammer's oldest child, actress Spencer Grammer, who he had with first wife Doreen Alderman, is just three years younger than Walsh and has a child of her own, which makes Grammer a grandparent.  

In all, Grammer has seven children with four different women. He is also the father to actress Greer Grammer, born in 1992, whom he had with Barrie Buckner, a hair and makeup stylist whom he did not marry. Per Yahoo, his second marriage to Leigh-Anne Csuhany, which lasted between 1992 and 1993, did not result in any children. 

Kelsey Grammar is determined to make his fourth marriage last

For the many viewers who watched Kelsey and Camille Grammer's divorce play out on Bravo's Real Housewives of Beverly Hills or on the covers of tabloid magazines, his young new wife, Kayte Walsh, seemed sort of like the villain. But no one came out of that situation innocent, with Grammer going so far as to call Camille "pathetic" at one point, per People, despite his own role in the split. 

But even Kelsey regrets filming those cringe-y moments with Camille for RHOBH. He told Anderson Cooper in 2012, "It was just ill-advised. It was the wrong decision and I should have come home from England when I first met Kayte and just said, 'Listen I've met somebody and this hasn't been working for a long time.' I regret not doing that. I thought I could do something nice, some parting thing and so it was very painful and uncomfortable. It was uncomfortable for Kayte, it was uncomfortable for all of us."

Kelsey and Camille were married for 13 years before their split — a milestone that Kelsey and Kayte haven't surpassed just yet. But Kelsey is determined to make this marriage work. He even got Kayte's name tattooed on his crotch to help him stay loyal, according to Entertainment Tonight. Whatever works!

Now that Camille has moved on with her husband David Meyer, whom she married in 2018, it seems like everyone — including Kelsey and Kayte — is getting their happy ending.
