Today, we now have a lot of up and coming stars in the movie industry. Some of them prefer to keep their private and personal lives a secret and away from the media while some others are willing to share private information with the public. An instance of the latter is Amy Schumer among many other examples.
However, we still have some in the industry also, who wouldn’t share any of their information. In essence, they wouldn’t also allow their innocent kids to be exposed to the media. Among these famous-born kids is Kyla Wayans.
Kyla Wayans is the daughter of the popular American comedian and actor, Damon Wayans. Stay glued; let’s examine the biography of Damon Wayans’ youngest child.

A lot of people have been wondering if Kyla Wayans is the same person as Kyla Pratt. Some even take Kyla Pratt as the daughter of the popular comedian whenever they come across their pictures. However, we can affirm to you that Kyla Wayans is not the same person as Kyla Pratt.
The popular comedian’s daughter, Kyla Wayans, is such a private and reserved personality. Kyla Pratt, on the other hand, is a well-known and public personality. Kyla Pratt is an artist and also an actress.
Her first appearance on TV was when she was eight. She is married to Danny Kirkpatrick and they both have two daughters.
Although, the two look quite alike physically; Kyla Wayans is a different person from Kyla Pratt. Most times, people fail to differentiate between the two celebrities, since they both bear the same name.

Another significant difference between the two stars is their age. Kyla Pratt is older compared to Kyla Wayans. Pratt is 33 years of age while Kyla Wayans is only 29 years old.
Her Father Had Diabetes
In January 2013, Damon Wayans Sr. had diabetes. According to TMZ reports, he was diagnosed with Type 2 diabetes. This made him stop attending shows and in essence, canceled a lot of appointments he had made.
According to reports, by February, he wasn’t able to feature in movies, and he terminated his contract with about six shows in New York City. He also confirmed this in his post on Twitter and Instagram. He assured his followers that he is doing fine with the hashtags “#iamright#thankfortheloveandsupport”.
As mentioned earlier, Kyla Wayans would always keep her private matters away from the media. She barely shows up on the media. Nonetheless, a lot of people are eager to know if she is dating or married, or even has kids.
Some sources claim that she has a seven-year-old daughter called Emmie. But no other information is revealed about either Emmie or her Father.
Her Net Worth
Acting is her professional career; she had started professional acting since she was nine. She was featured in the TV show, “My Wife and Kids”. Asides from that, she had neither featured in the TV series nor any other movies. Her popularity was just due to the influence of her family members.
