Chris has been married to Malaak Compton-Rock for eight years and they have two little girls, Lola and Zahra. What did Chris's dad teach him about being a father?
"My dad died before I had kids," Chris says. "But the most important thing is to be there. And you can say whatever you want to kids, but they will do what you do. [You can say] 'Don't smoke.' But if you smoke, then your kid is going to smoke. If you're responsible, then your kids are going to be responsible."
Chris's daughters were on his mind when he joined Oprah's Angel Network Team on the ground in Houston, Texas, to help survivors of the Hurricane Katrina catastrophe.
