Of course, Dakota is a citizen of the United States of America. Various report says he belongs to the White American ethnic group, but the martial artist is mixed. Yes, he is White from his mother’s side, but his father has Cherokee and Irish ancestry. So Dakota is an American of Caucasian, Cherokee, and Irish heritage.

Born and raised in Los Angeles, California, Dakota has lived in the United States all his life. Because of who his parents are, he started gaining mainstream attention when he was a baby. So his parents took to protecting him from unwarranted media scrutiny and unwanted attention. Because of this, much isn’t known about his early life; even the schools he has attended thus far are not privy to the public.

Dakota Alan Norris has already carved out a career for himself in martial arts. However, it’s unclear whether he will also pursue a career as an actor like his father. He was just eight years old when he made a choice to begin training in martial arts.

It is said that he was inspired by his father to take this career path. With the help of his father and Derrick Stinson, Dakota is now gaining widespread recognition in the field. He became a second-degree belt holder around 16 and is currently a third-degree black belt.

Who is Dakota Alan Norris’ Mother?

Gena is 60 years old right now as she was born on the 10th of August 1963. From what we gathered, she is one of the four children born to her parents, Anette O’Kelley and Alan Gordon O’Malley.

Gena was raised alongside two sisters, Maureen and Elizabeth, and a brother named Eric. The siblings lost their father, who worked as security staff for Kunde Winery and Hewlett-Packard, in 2008. While Gena is nowhere as popular as her famous husband, she made a name for herself as a model. She is also regarded as an actress in some quarters as she has been seen in a few productions like Yes, Dear, TV2 Nyhetene, Praise, and Biography.

Gena is now seldom active in show business but has committed most of her time to be a businesswoman. Among other business endeavors, she oversees the operations of CForce Bottling Water Company. She co-founded the company and serves as its chief executive officer.

Dakota Alan Norris’ Parents Have Been Married Since 1998

When Dakota Alan Norris and his twin were born, Chuck Norris and Gena O’Kelly had already been married for over two years. Records show that the famous power couple initially met in 1997 while having dinner in a Dallas, Texas, restaurant. They soon started dating and wasted no time in getting married. The implication of this is that the couple has been together for over two decades and counting.

Their initial encounter has a very intriguing backstory. According to sources, the renowned martial artist and movie icon was dining at the Texas restaurant with another woman when he saw Gena for the first time. Due to the presence of his date, Chuck was forced to enlist the help of his assistant to set up a meeting with Gena.

Gena was 34 at the time, while Chuck was 57. But despite their 23-year age difference, the two consented to date and enjoyed their first formal outing in Dallas. The famous actor soon discovered that Gena had already been through one marriage; she had been married to Gordon Hinschberger. Like the age gap between them, this was also not enough reason to keep them away from each other.

If anything, it made them feel they were perfect for each other, as Chuck was divorced as well. The legendary actor was previously married to Dianne Kay Holechek from 1958 until 1989. Barely a year into their relationship, Dakota Alan Norris’ parents decided to get married. They exchanged marital vows on the 28th of November 1998 and are still married to date.
