Danny Kirkpatrick & Kyla Pratt: Dating, Married, Kids
Circa 2020, Danny Kirkpatrick was dating girlfriend Kyla Pratt. Kyla Pratt was an actress who was best known for voicing the character of Penny Proud in the Disney Channel animated series The Proud Family. She also appeared in movies like Dr. Dolittle, Love & Basketball.
Kyla Pratt’s new movie, a Christmas film on Lifetime TV, Let’s Meet Again on Christmas Eve, was set to premiere during the 2020 Christmas festivities.
Danny met Kyla in 2003 when Danny’s cousin invited Kyla over to their place. They had some drinks, some laughs, some dares, and Danny and Kyla were thick as thieves.
Dating started around 2007 and they had not married until 2020. They already had had two kids but they had not married. When asked about it, the couple answered that they would marry when they feel like it. There was a rumor, however, that the two of them were engaged since 2011.
Well, even though they were not married, Danny and Kyla had a great relationship. Once, flaunting his drawing skills, Danny had gifted Kyla a portrait of her as Rose in the movie Titanic.
Talking about their kids, most of the sources say that Danny and Kyla had two daughters, Lyric (born in 2010) and Liyah (born in 2013). However, Danny’s Instagram said that he also had a son who turned 14 years of age in December 2020.
It was possible that Danny’s son (name unknown) was from his previous relationship. Or he could be the eldest of Danny and Kyla’s kids, and all those sources were wrong.
Anyway, Danny and Kyla and their kids were living like a happy tight family, although the parents of the family were not really married.
