In The Spotlight
Kayte Walsh reportedly met Kelsey during one of the flights and the two started dating in 2010. At the time, Kelsey was already married for 13 years to former Playboy model Camille Donatacci, and had two children, Mason and Jade, with her.
In June 2010, it was reported that Kelsey was dating an unidentified girl. Thereafter, in August they confirmed the news that Kayte was pregnant with Kelsey’s child. When this news broke, Camille was one of the main casts of the reality TV show, ‘The Real Housewives of Beverly Hills.’ This scandal became a part of that show and Camille often gave way to her feelings on the show, stating how devastated and disappointed she was. She said that even after standing by his side through difficult times (even his recovery from heart attack), Kelsey behaved as if she never existed.
In October 2010, Kelsey informed that Kayte had miscarried 6 weeks earlier, and in December he announced that he and Kayte were engaged.

In January 2012, the new couple announced that Kayte was pregnant with their twins. However, one of the twins, a boy, was miscarried. Their first-born, a daughter whom they named Faith Evangeline Elisa Grammer, was born on July 13, 2012.
