Born on January 15, 1969, Kellita was born in Chicago, Illinois. Her family later moved to Oakland, California. She was raised alongside with her twin brother, Eric in Oakland, California by her mother, Honey Smith. She seems to have a close bond with her mother as evidenced by her mother’s day post on Instagram.
Honey's husband(Kellita's father) was in the army and had left the family to fight the war in Vietnam when she was just a baby girl. Because of her father’s career, her parent's marriage was put on a lot of strain which eventually led to divorce.

Not Getting Married And Lack Of Husband--Key To Antiaging
For her, the idea of a perfect family with a husband and kids living in a house surrounded by a picketed fence is as farfetched as the concept of the sun rising from the west.
On 18 May 2018, replying to a fan’s tweet, she credited her ageless skin to doing what she loved, smiling more often and having never got married.

The Z Nation star has a first-hand account of dealing with a failing marriage. Witnessing what had transpired between her married parents before their divorce must have left a sour taste on her mouth for her to shame the institution of marriage publicly.
Sins of the father rarely fall on the daughter, but when it does, the daughter admonishes the concept of being happily married; she questions the institution of marriage and relishes independence.
