Anthony Mackie is currently single after ending his 4-year marriage in 2018. The actor used to be married to Sheletta Chapital. The ex-lovers were reportedly childhood friends who dated on and off. They had four children together before they split up in 2018.
They already had two children together before they married on December 17, 2014, at the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino in Punta Cana, Dominican Republic. People said the wedding was a private event attended only by close friends and family.
Six months after his wedding in June 2015, the actor told his fans and the public about his marriage on his social media page. In the fall of the same year, he told his fans that his third child was coming into the world.

Anthony Mackie's Kids
Anthony is proud to be the father of four boys, all of whom are boys. Mackie is very protective of his family, so no one knows the children's names or when they were born.
We only know that he had his first two children before he and Sheletta Chapital married and that he had his third child a year after he and Sheletta married in 2015. During interviews, the actor always talked about his kids and how close they are as a family, but he never said their names.
He said that his first son is a lot like him in that he is very emotional and that his second son loves to cook. He says his kids don't care that he is a superhero and rarely watch his movies because they would rather play board games or video games.
