ABCDANCING WITH THE STARS – With a lineup of celebrities including a supermodel, a former White House press secretary, a Bachelorette, pro-athletes from the NFL and NBA, a Supreme and a TV icon to name a few, “Dancing with the Stars” is waltzing its way into its highly anticipated upcoming 2019 season. The new celebrity cast is adding some glitzy bling to their wardrobe, breaking in their dancing shoes and readying themselves for their first dance on the ballroom floor, as the show kicks off MONDAY, SEPT. 16 (8:00-10:00 p.m. EDT), on ABC.

From 1999 to 2005, Kel Mitchell was married to a woman named Tyisha Hampton.

The actress, according to her IMDB, appeared on Keenan & Kel in 1998. She has since acted in one project: Voyeur: In Hindsight.

According to Page Six, Kel suffered from depression and suicidal thoughts and used drugs after his marriage to Tyisha ended. The outlet quotes him as saying, “After my divorce, I just felt like life was not working out.”

Things changed when Kel became the stage manager for a church in Los Angeles. “Before, it was just about me, but now it is more about Christ,” he shared. “That’s when things started to turn around in my life. I went through a rough time, but now I have peace.”

3. He Has Three Children

With his first wife, Kel has two children: Allure and Lyric.

In 2017, he welcomed his third child, Wisdom, with his wife, Lee. The actor wrote on Instagram, “Fun reading all the post for the 20th anniversary of Good Burger today thx for the love! We have also been celebrating here at the Mitchell household since the weekend. My love @therealasialee gave birth to our baby girl Wisdom on Saturday afternoon.”

Wisdom was born 7lb, 11oz at birth.

The couple announced news of their pregnancy in February with a Good Burger themed photo that delighted fans.

4. He Recently Dropped His Daughter Allure off at College

In August, Kel dropped his middle child, Allure, off at college for the first time. He posted a selfie of the two that read, “First day of college! Class started today and she is officially a college student! So proud!”

Three months prior, he posted a congratulatory series of pictures to his daughter, who had just graduated high school, writing, “She did it!! ??‍? Congratulations @alluremariah So proud of all your accomplishments and you have a blessed, bright beautiful future ahead!”… I love you so much! And I am very proud of you!”

Allure’s Instagram is private. She has 1,561 followers to date.

5. He Has Two Sisters

Kel grew up with two sisters, Kenyatta and Kyra.

The actor is a convert to Christianity and finds the time to work as a youth pastor at Spirit Food Christian Center in Winnetka, Los Angeles.

A 2015 post in The Christian Post reveals that Kel grew up on Chicago’s south side and his grandfather was a pastor. The article outlines how Mitchell found “clarity” after turning to religion after experiencing depression, addiction, and a divorce. “I was trying to figure it all out on my own. But what I needed to do was turn to Him,” the actor said. “Once I found that clarity with Christ, I knew everything would work out.”

“Let go of your past, be a new creature in Christ!” Mitchell is quoted as saying. “I did! I let him in and Life is GOOD now, my eyes have been opened. I have always known God but now I have a true understanding of who he is and why I am here, and why God has kept me safe, and sinful ways are no longer around me because I am surrounded with the love of Jesus, and I have allowed him to make the decisions in my life. I study the word, I worship his name with praying and song.”
