One of the best TV shows ever is Walker, Texas Ranger, and I would like to know more about the star, Chuck Norris. Is he married? Is Aaron Norris a relative?
—Scott M., New Mexico

Yes, to both questions. Norris and his wife, Jena, who married in 1998, are the proud parents of 2-year-old twins, Dakota and Dani Lee. Aaron Norris and Chuck Norris are not only brothers, they are partners in Norris Brothers Entertainment, the production company responsible for the long-running hit series, Walker, Texas Ranger. The company currently has several film and television projects in development. Chuck Norris, who splits his time between a home in Los Angeles and a ranch outside Houston, also stays busy with his KickStart Foundation. He created the foundation in 1990 with the encouragement of former President George Bush to help young people resist drug-related peer pressure through martial arts training. Norris, 63, a martial arts teacher and six-time undefeated World Professional Middleweight Karate Champion, began acting at the suggestion of his friend and student, Steve McQueen.
