The actor is the father of three children, two daughters Laila Wayans and Illia Wayans and a son named Marlon Wayans. Wayans loves the feeling of his fatherhood. He once said in an interview,

"Waking up every day and seeing three different versions of yourself is great. Watching them grow and learn and being a part of completing a human being is beautiful. I see so many things that I’ve taught my oldest daughter and she’s learned — and that her mom has taught her — from day one. It’s beautiful to watch."

He named his son after his brother because they made a pledge when they kids to name their son after one another's name.

Shawn's daughter Laila is living her own life with her own choices. She is the co-founder at 1321bleach based in New York. She operates the fashion label along with her partner, Westy Perkins. The company generally focuses on cloth and music production. They founded the company in 2018.

Their uniquely dyed clothes are something to look forward to. They merge their digital artwork and graphic design into their fashion and eventually generate an otherworldly clothing line.

Both Westy and Laila are childhood buddies and growing up they were always interested in DJing here and there. Their genres are a modern trap, SoundCloud electronic subgenera, PC, metal, emo, and experimental glitch.

There was a rumor that he was married to a fitness trainer Ursula but it has not been officially confirmed by the actor so we cannot assure the identity of Wayans' mystery wife. The 47-years-old actor is not active on his social media. He has been living a blissful life with his children and is a great father to them.
