The majority of people feel that celebrity kids should pursue careers in the entertainment business like their parents. However, this may not be the case for every celebrity child because they, too, are human beings like the rest of us, with the ability to pursue a career in whatever sector they want. As a result, being biased just because they are connected to celebrities is not fair. Their decision to pursue a career in an area other than entertainment should be normalized. Today, we’ve given you the inside scoop on one such celebrity child, Kennedy Owen, who selected a very different professional path than her famous father.
Who Is Kennedy Owen?
Kennedy is widely known as the celebrity kid. Being the child of two amazing parents, Kennedy Owen is a lucky teenager. She is the only daughter of Gary Owen and Kenya Duke. He is famous as he has work in a popular movie, ‘Daddy’s Day Care.’
And, her mother Kenya Duke, is a homemaker as well as an entrepreneur. She is highly pampered as the only daughter of her parents. Furthermore, because she is still in her teens and is pursuing her studies, she has yet to establish a career and become well-known. As a result, Kennedy is known by her father’s name for the time being.
How Old is Kennedy Owen? Age
Kennedy is 19 years old at present. Her birth took place in the United States in 2002. Likewise, her birthday falls on the 3rd of July, which is also the month when her parents married. Moreover, her parents are from different ethnicity; her mum is Afro-American while her father is Native American. As a result, Miss Owen herself endures a mixed ethnicity.

The parents of Owen have a pretty intriguing relationship. Her father and mother have parented her properly, and it can be seen well reflected in her behavior. The famous standup comedian was enjoying his golden days when he got married to Kenya Duke in 2003. There are many details about their wedding, one of which is their wedding cake being dropped by the baker. Their wedding is also known as the hot mess as there were several unforeseen situations that the duo faced.
The details about their dating life are unknown, and they want to keep that information confidential. But it is quite clear that they met, for the first time, in a comedy show in Los Angeles where Gary was the only white performer for which the crowd presented a standing ovation for his performance.
Then, they got attracted to each other, exchanged each other’s numbers, and started dating. Gary was successful in impressing her and then the duo married each other in 2003. They are widely known as the famous couple who have a happy multi-racial relationship.

They have filed their divorced in March 2021.
Though the actual reason for their split is unknown. However, there are suspicions that Gary cheated on Kenya. Although their divorce procedures are ongoing, they have already started living separately. According to the source, Kenya has demanded spousal support of around $44,000 per month.
The main reason for demanding the money was to support herself and her children as she left her career years ago for her family.
