Wanda Sykes’ Children Are Off The Camera
The American comedian Wanda Sykes is one of those celebrities who like keeping their personal life away from the limelight. Despite being popular all over the world and earning fans’ love, Wanda does not let the insight of her family get out into the public. However, the queen of comedy is not hesitant to talk about her children and has only shared one photo of her twins in one of the episodes of The Tonight Show With Jay Leno.
The only time Wanda opens up about her twins is on the talk shows. And yes, no one can stop her from making fun of her own kids. In the Ellen Show, the comedian shared that the twins love France, and they mostly speak French than English, as their mother Alex is French. Sometimes she doubts if the kids are cursing her since she does not understand French. Well, it would be better if she too learns French.
In a conversation with People, Wanda shared that she and her wife Alex, spend as much time as possible with their children. Instead of keeping them in front of the TV, the couple engages Olivia and Lucas with arts and crafts involving herself as well. Such a great way to spend quality time with kids. With a comedian mom in the house, we guess Lucas and Olivia never have to switch on to television for more entertainment.
We guess most of the people know how much of a talented person Wanda Sykes is.
