As an actress, Kayte Walsh’s name was featured in the rolling credits of the TV show Boss, she also has credit in other works as a production assistant, producer, and cinematographer, but in her diverse roles in the film industry, what she is most known for is her marriage to the famed actor, Kelsey Grammer.
The actor, who is known for works like Fraiser and Cheers, got married to Kayte Walsh as his fourth wife in 2011. They have remained together ever since, in what everyone, including Kayte, is hoping will be the last marriage of the actor.
There is plenty to learn about Kayte Walsh, including her professional career and her marriage to Kelsey Grammer and we covered all of it below. Read on to learn more.
Who is Kayte Walsh?
Kayte Walsh was born in England, specifically in Bristol to a prominent man, a former footballer, Alan Walsh who plied his trade playing for teams like Darlington and Bristol City during his career and has transitioned into a coach. Her mother is named Susan and she is one of three children born to her English parents.
Her younger siblings are a sister named Sophie and a brother named Phil, and while her brother followed in her father’s footsteps to become a professional footballer, she took to the skies to become an air hostess.
We do not know much about her career as an air hostess, specifically how many years she worked for Virgin Atlantic, but she met her husband, Kelsey Grammer, during one of her trips to New York and she has also worked in various roles in Hollywood, behind the camera. In front of the camera, Kayte Walsh has appeared on shows like Entertainment Tonight, The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon and on Oprah, in an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter.
When it comes to Kayte Walsh’s career achievements, we can point to a couple of them, such as her acting credits as Gwenda Archer in three episodes of Boss. She has also worked in other roles like assistant camera person on Tabatha’s Salon Takeover, a production assistant on The Half Hour News Hour, an associate producer on Betty White’s Off Their Rockers, cinematographer on the short movie, Overjoyed and assistant editor on Pay It Off.
However, other than her professional accomplishments, she has helped her husband overcome the depression and guilt of the death of his younger sister, which sent him into alcohol and drug abuse.
Relationship with Kelsey Grammer
Perhaps the most significant part of her life as a celebrity, Kayte Walsh got into the limelight through her marriage to Kelsey Grammer, who is one of Hollywood’s most popular actors. Camille is also known as Camille Donatacci and she was a prominent member of The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills. She also owns half of Kelsey’s production company, Grammnet Productions and was married to him between 1997 and 2011.
Other than the history of their relationship (which began while Kelsey was still married to his third wife, Camille Grammer) after they met on a plane during Kayte’s time as an air hostess for Virgin Atlantic, it is the massive age difference between the couple that has drawn a lot of media attention. The couple has an age difference of twenty-five years between them, with an incredible fact being that Kayte Walsh’s father is younger than her husband!
Regardless, both of them haven’t been bothered by the fact and have been married to each other since 2011. Their wedding was held multiple times, with the first one at an NYC Plaza Hotel.
Contrary to what many might think in regards to their relationship, especially suggestions of Kayte Walsh being an opportunist, she has been credited for helping Kelsey shake off his addictions to alcohol and hard drugs.
Since they got married, the couple has given birth to three children, a daughter and two sons who were born in July 2012, July 2014 and November 2016 respectively. Apart from their three kids, Kelsey Grammer had four children from his previous marriages and affairs.
