Anthony Mackie & Sheletta Chapital

The two first met in grade school when they were seven years old and have two kids together. Captain America star Anthony Mackie married his longtime girlfriend, Sheletta Chapital, during a small ceremony at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic, in December 2014.

Speaking about their first meeting on the Queen Latifah Show, Mackie said: “It was funny. I was coming from a very bad school and going to a very good school. And when I walked into second grade it was Dr. Seuss Day, and we had the little hot plate out and the teacher was making green eggs and ham.” “So I walk in and I looked and I see this little girl with these ratty pigtails and skinny legs, and I was like, ‘Wow!’”

They have been together ever since with 3 children.
