His Bio: Parents Put Him For Adoption
Born to interracial parents, Christian grew up in Flint, Michigan. He was born on 24 July 1975 in Detroit to mixed-race parents. His father was an African-American while his mother, American-French.
Adopted twice as a child, he was put up for adoption by his parents. He even took to his Twitter to reveal the dark side of his childhood in August 2010, stating that he used to be so afraid of being a father as he did not have one.
Further, he added that he is thankful for his rough childhood that made him a better parent.
Initially, he wanted to make music but later shifted his interest to acting, which leads him to join acting classes while attending Ferris State University.
No History Of Long-Term Girlfriend Makes Him Gay?
The trainer turned actor was once rumored to have dated Baje Fletcher. His one-time girlfriend, Baje is an American actress.
Because he never shows off his girlfriends on social media, people assumed him to be a closeted gay despite never portraying himself as one. He has maintained his heterosexuality but asserted he loves the support from the gay community.
He has a son, Christian Keyes Jr. Information as to who mothers his son is not public knowledge as he rarely chimes on the topic. He’s not married to his son’s mother as he has repeatedly boasted not having a girlfriend in interviews.
Christian often prefers to spend time with his son, who will be 16 years old in December 2018, and they share a consummate bond with each other.

Moreover, he recently uploaded a video on his Facebook, teaching his son how to shave in August 2018.
Well, it looks like he is not satisfied and wants to add more to his family.
Talking to the interview with Rollingout.com in May 2018, he stated that would like another child to adopt as he was adopted twice. He also gave a small clue that he is looking for a perfect wife to do all of that, but he is not going to rush into anything.
In November 2013 speaking to Youtuber C Nikky at the premiere of the movie Best Man Holiday, the Saints & Sinner star confessed being ready for a wife when God sends him one.
Christian Wants It On His Terms
Rolling Out in May this year did a digital cover on him. In the insightful cover/interview, he let the world know that he wants a wife, calling it a ‘top priority’ right now. He further broke down the traits of his would-be-wife as someone who wouldn’t walk around half naked showing off her ass cheeks, camel toes and areolas on social media.

The All Men Can’t Be Dogs star emphasized on wanting a wife who would ‘bring a table to sit next to his table’ as opposed to someone who would use her ‘sex appeal to bag a millionaire.’
The Detroit native further delved into wanting to adopt a son with his future wife. He also spoke on hookup culture, labeling it ‘wrong for me.’
That's asking a lot. But then again, why should a man of his stature settle down for any less, right?
