According to Norris' book- Against All Odds, Gena and him met in Dallas back in 1997 while he was on a dinner date with someone else. He said; "Gena came on the set the next day and played a small part on the show ... I invited her to dinner that night ... I wanted to get to know Gena better, so I asked her to return to Dallas as soon as possible. She came back a couple of weeks later, and our friendship grew into a dating relationship . Before long I felt myself falling head over heels in love." (Page 196-97)

O'Kelly had two children from her previous marriage and she delivered twins on 30th August 2001; Dakota and Danilee.

Happy Wedding Anniversary Chuck and Gena!
