Where Is She From?

With a name like hers, Khatira Rafiqzada stands out among celebrity spouses in Hollywood, most of whom go by varying combinations of traditional American names. Although she is an American, Khatira Rafiqzada’s exotic name comes from her Afghanistan ethnicity. She was born to Afghan and Iran immigrants on the 8th of January, 1981, somewhere in the United States.

Khatira did not spend time as a professional actress long enough for details about her background to make it onto the public sphere. We do, however, know that she was raised by Shia Muslim parents and had her education in the US.

Here’s What Became Of Her Short-Acting Career

Before she had her only 2 credited screen appearances as an actress, she worked several jobs. Some of them included waitressing and working the back end of restaurants, both of which she did in New York and Los Angeles.

In 2009, when her husband to be was making his 30th onscreen appearance in a recurring role as Marshall Vogel in Flashforward, the tables turned for Khatira Rafiqzada. She got her debut role in the short film, Layla, playing the character, Zola. In the same year, she got her first role in a feature-length movie, playing a counselor named Ms. Garrett in the movie Chain Letter.

However, after two credits, Khatira Rafiqzada quit acting, choosing instead to live outside of the spotlight. While we presume that she has kept busy over the years, her job descriptions have changed a few times, she is widely reported to be a stay-at-home mom.

Aside from the attention Khatira Rafiqzada’s exotic name draws, she is also remarkably famous for her relationship with the African-American actor, Michael Ealy. Khatira met Ealy in 2008, and both of them began their relationship in the same year.

After four years of dating, Khatira Rafiqzada and Michael Ealy got married in October 2012. The news of their marriage came as a surprise to their fans all over the globe, particularly Michael’s fans, several of whom have a crush on the movie/TV star.

The surprise at the marriage announcement is consistent with one of the defining features of Khatira Rafiqzada’s relationship with her husband—Secrecy. Save for a few red carpet appearances, they are known for keeping details about their marriage and family away from the media.

As mentioned earlier, Ealy has appeared in more than 50 movies and TV shows, including popular titles like Takers, Think Like a Man Too, Being Mary Jane, and several others. He is also an award-winning actor having won the Black Reel Awards as best actor in Their Eyes Were Watching God (2005) and the African-American Film Critics Association as best supporting actor in For Colored Girls (2010).

While we might have all the juicy details about Khatira Rafiqzada and her marriage to one of Hollywood’s most coveted men, we know their marriage has produced 2 children. Khatira and her husband share two children—Elijah Brown, who was born on the 18th of April 2014 and a daughter, born in 2016. Her name remains unknown.

We know very little about their children, but her husband has not hesitated to share his love for his children, particularly his daughter, on social media and interviews. The actor has taken to Instagram to share a few posts expressing his love for his children.

In a November 2016 interview with Steve Harvey, where he revealed that he and Khatira Rafiqzada had welcomed a daughter, he had this to say:

I just discovered a whole new love. I’ve never ever felt this way before. I was wondering if I could love another child as much as I love my son. And what I realized, within hours of my daughter being born, not only do I love her just as much if not more. It’s a special kind of protective love.”
