Danilee Kelly Norris is the daughter of famous American personalities Chuck Norris and Gena O’Kelley. Despite being the celebrity child of such powerhouses, there is very little information regarding the young Norris.
The Hollywood action star also agreed on keeping things low-key regarding his kid’s details. Below, let’s look at five interesting facts on Chuck Norris’ daughter and Dakota Alan Norris‘ sister Danilee Kelly Norris and get to know her better.
Danilee’s Multi-Talented Pops
Chuck Norris’s daughter Danilee Kelly Norris must be proud of him, knowing who he is. Born as Carlos Ray Norris, the 81-year-old is a professional mixed martial artist, actor, director, screenwriter, and a former U.S. Airforce member.
Chuckie made his acting debut in a small cameo for The Wrecking Crew in 1968. Long before Tom Selleck, Harrison Ford, Arnold Schwarzenegger, and Sylvester Stallone were household names, the taekwondo expert was already wreaking havoc on the big screen.

Good Guys Wear Black, A Force of One, An Eye for an Eye, Forced Vengeance, Lone Wolf McQuade, The Delta Force, and Code of Silence are some of his notable movies. Danilee’s father also starred alongside Bruce Lee in The Way of the Dragon, which saw them go toe-to-toe.
Aside from acting, Norris is also a black belt in Tang Soo Do, Brazilian Jiu-Jitsu, and Judo. Danilee’s father also has his own discipline called Chun Kuk Do, which has a huge following in the United States. Each summer, the United Fighting Arts Federation holds a Chun Kuk Do training seminar and championship tournament in Nevada, Las Vegas.
She Has A Twin Brother
Chuck Norris’ daughter Danilee Kelly Norris, born on August 30, 2000, is not his only child with Gena O’Kelley. Dakota Alan Norris is Danilee’s twin brother and is a 3rd-degree black belt in MMA.
Despite having 5 other half-siblings, the twins are more close to each other. Both of them are not active on social media platforms, due to which their information is scarce. Danilee’s brother has an action star written all over him as he followed in their father’s footsteps.
Unlike Chuck Norris’s other sons, Mike Norris and Eric Norris, Dakota is well versed in MMA and is into gymnastics. He appeared alongside his father in a couple of advertisements for Total Gym.
The handsome hunk also runs a YouTube channel with 63 subscribers in which most of his videos are focused on his father and the art of martial arts.
2nd Degree Black Belt
Similar to her twin brother and father, Danilee Kelly Norris is also into Chun Kuk Do. She received her 2nd-degree black belt in December of 2016 under the testing board of UFAF black belts.
The art of Chun Kuk Do includes codes of honor and rules to live by. The practice is in the form of Kata, and the art has over 4000 members worldwide. The discipline founded by Danilee’s father is not only popular in the States but also Mexico, Norway, and Paraguay.
She might not be at the elite level like her twin brother but is pretty well-versed. The Sand Pebbles actor Steve McQueen used to be her father’s disciple.

She Has Acted For A Few Times
Despite being the daughter of Hollywood’s action icon, Danilee Kelly Norris has only starred in a couple of projects. Furthermore, she is pretty looking and can perform her own stunts due to her MMA experience.
Dakota Alan Norris’ sister can always improve her lady persona as she is the daughter of the former American model, Gena O’Kelley. In 2005’s Walker, Texas Ranger: Trial by Fire, the 2nd-degree black belt holder starred alongside her father. The 2 hours TV special deals with an investigation of a murder.
Besides starring alongside her old man, Danilee has also appeared in an episode for the comedy show, Yes, Dear. The six-season show is about a young couple figuring the basics of parenting.
Chuck Norris’ daughter Danilee Kelly Norris is yet to land a major role. But let’s hope to get to see her shining on the big and small screen in the future.

Danilee Kelly Norris is somewhat a unique name for a child. Her middle name Kelly is obviously inherited from her mother, Gena O’Kelley. Danilee is a feminine version of Daniel with a Hebrew origin. It is primarily a name given to girls with the meaning “God is my Judge”.
Nevertheless, we wish Chuck’s youngest daughter and Dakota Alan Norris’ twin sister all the best for her future.
