Kim Feild’s Facts Card

A Look at Her Childhood and Family Background

Kim Fields’ life began on the 12th day of May 1969 in New York City, where she was born. Although she is widely known as Kim Fields, her birth name was Kim Victoria Fields. She is the daughter of Laverne Fields and her ex-husband. Her mother, who is professionally known as Chip Fields, is an actress, singer, TV director, and producer.

Following her parent’s divorce, Kim, her mom, and siblings moved to Los Angeles. Later on, their mom got hitched again to Erv Hurd, Kim’s stepfather, sometime in August 1994.

Details of Her Acting Career and Rise to Stardom

Owing to her inherited acting talents, Kim hit the silver screens at the age of eight. She made her first film appearance in the 1978 CBS situation comedy, Baby, I’m Back, wherein she starred as Angie Ellis alongside legendary actors Denise Nicholas and Demond Wilson. This initial exposure made her very popular during her days at the Burbank High School, LA.

Before her graduation in 1986, she had already gained fame through her role as Dorothy Ramsey on The Facts of Life (1979-1988). After she left High School and on finishing The Facts of Life, she took a break from acting and enrolled at the Pepperdine University, where she earned a degree in communications.

Among the numerous film roles she has played so far, Alexis is mostly popular for playing Diavian Johnson and Nicole Wilson in ABC’s Sister, Sister and Nickelodeon’s The Secret World of Alex Mack, respectively.

Following her divorce from Freeman, Kim Fields married Christopher Morgan, an actor, singer/dancer, and entrepreneur.

Why Do People Think Her Husband Is Gay?

There have been several speculations saying that Kim Fileds husband Christopher Morgan is gay. The rumors first spilled from Kenya Moore of The Real Housewives of Atlanta in February 2016. According to Moore, there is a long and widely-held perception in the entertainment industry that Morgan is sexually attracted to his gender, which has earned him the name, “Chrissy.”

However, speaking during an interview with E!, Kim’s husband dismissed the speculations, explaining that they originally emanated from his seeming obscurity in Hollywood before his dating and eventual marriage to already famous Kim Fields. According to Morgan, no one knew any lady he was going out with back then, and so they started guessing he must be homosexual. He also associated the rumours to his choice of career in musical theatre, precisely Broadway singing and dancing. Morgan later revealed that Kenya Moore has apologized to him, as well as publicly over the allegation.
