David Khari Webber Chappelle is a 48-year-old American Actor. He is also a stand-up comedian, writer, and producer. David is better known as Dave Chappelle. He has appeared in several films throughout his career.
In 2001, Dave married Elaine Mendoza Erfe. Its been 20 years of their happily married life. The couple has three children, two sons, and a daughter. The sons are named Sulayman, and Ibrahim and their daughter’s name is Sanaa.
The family lives near Yellow Springs, Ohio on a 65-acre farm. The couple likes to keep their life private and therefore they rarely share about their private life. They even relocated to Ohio to lead a private life.
The couple had their oldest son, Sulayman in the year 2001. Their son is named on the basis of both Muslim and Christian religions. Dave is a Muslim and her wife is a Christian. Dave actually converted to the Islamic religion in the year 1991.
According to the sources, Sulayman is a boxing enthusiast. There is not much information on the kids as the couple prefers to keep their life private. Although once the comedian shared an incident about Sulayman. He stated that once he found marijuana in his eldest’s son room. Once when he went into the room he randomly picked up his notebook and was going through the pages. He found these wonderful poetries written. And then he opened the drawers and found the rolled papers in the middle drawer. And then he knew where the poetry is coming from.
Dave in an interview stated that he had more depths after he became a father. Everything changed when he had kids. In 2003, the couple had their second son, Ibrahim. There is literally no information about Ibrahim, never did the star mentioned him yet.
And then the couple had their third kid. A beautiful daughter, Sanna, was born in 2009. The daughter was also kept low but she did appear in her dad’s film. She had a small cameo in the hit film A Star Is Born which was released in 2018. She appeared as the daughter of her real-life dad. That was amazing to see Dave’s real daughter playing her daughter in the movie as well. Indeed, Sanna is also a red carpet girl. She appeared at the Toronto International Film Festival with her father, Dave on the red carpet.
Maybe the daughter will follow in the footsteps of her father and be a star. Her appearances like that left the fans in awe.
In 2019, DAve opened his heart about being a dad and being on the road all the time. In the Netflix show “Dave Chappelle: Equanimity & The Bird Revelation”, Dave mentioned how he felt seeing his children grow. He stated that he sees his age in his children. Dave recalled an incident in which he came home after being on road for weeks and when he got back home, nobody was at home. He was upset that not one member of the family thought that he would be home finally after weeks and would like to see them. That was the wake-up call for him, according to dave.
