As an actress Kayte Walsh’s name was featured in the opening credits of the TV show Boss, she has also worked in other roles as a production assistant, producer and cinematographer, but in her many roles in the film industry, she is best known for her marriage to the famous actress Kelsey Grammer.
The actor, known for works such as Fraiser and Cheers, married Kayte Walsh in 2011 as his fourth wife. Since then they have stayed together, although everyone, including Kayte, hopes that this will be the actor’s last marriage.
There is much to learn about Kayte Walsh, including her professional career and her marriage to Kelsey Grammer, and we’ve covered all of it below. Read on to learn more.
Who is Kayte Walsh?
Kayte Walsh was born in England, in Bristol to be precise, the son of a prominent man, a former footballer, Alan Walsh, who played for and coached teams like Darlington and Bristol City during his career. Her mother’s name is Susan and she is one of three children of 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 football professional, she took to the skies to become a flight attendant.
We don’t know much about her flight attendant career, especially 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 behind the camera in various roles in Hollywood. Kayte Walsh has appeared in front of the camera on shows such as Entertainment Tonight, The Tonight Show with Jimmy Fallon, and in an episode of Oprah’s Next Chapter.
When it comes to Kayte Walsh’s professional achievements, we can point to some of them, such as her acting performance as Gwenda Archer in three episodes of Boss. She has also worked in other roles, such as camera assistant on Tabatha’s salon takeover, a production assistant on The Half Hour News Hour, an associate producer on Betty Whites Off Their Rockers, cinematographer on the short film Overjoyed, and assistant editor on Pay It Off.
In addition to her professional achievements, however, she has also helped her husband overcome depression and the guilt of his younger sister’s death, which drove 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 with Kelsey Grammer, one of Hollywood’s most popular actresses. 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.
Apart from the history of their relationship (which began when Kelsey was still married to his third wife, Camille Grammer), after they met on a plane during Kayte’s time as a stewardess for Virgin Atlantic, it’s the massive age difference between the two that has attracted media attention. The couple has a twenty-five year age difference between them, and the incredible fact is that Kayte Walsh’s father is younger than her husband!
Nevertheless, the two didn’t mind and have been married to each other since 2011. Their wedding was held several times, the first one in an NYC Plaza Hotel.
Contrary to what many may think about their relationship, especially the suggestion that Kayte Walsh is an opportunist, she is credited with helping Kelsey get rid of his addiction to alcohol and hard drugs.
Since their marriage, the couple has had three children, a daughter and two sons, born in July 2012, July 2014 and November 2016 respectively. In addition to the three children, Kelsey Grammer had four children from his previous marriages and affairs.
