His notable voice acts include “Elena of Avalor” on Disney Channel, “WordGirl” on PBS Kids, the voice of Mr. Peabody in “The Mr. Peabody & Sherman Show” between 2015 and 2017, “Nature Cat” on PBS Kids, Cartoon Network’s “Rick and Morty”, “Hotel Transylvania” animated film series, and Fox’s animated sitcom “Family Guy”. Etc.

Is Chris Parnell married?

Chris Parnell is a married man. When he got married, who he got married to, where they got married to, etc. are all information Parnell has successfully kept out of the media. What we know is that he is married and that he has two children. That is all. In fact, his miserly nature with his matrimony make a lot of people doubt that he is actually even married at all, thereby making them wave that lazy “is he gay” question. We won’t argue that gay line and it is not just because we believe he is married. It is because one’s marital status is never a foolproof indication of one’s sexual orientation.

Parnell is said to be married to an ex-actress. They have two kids.

Height and net worth

Chris Parnell has made a decent amount of money in Hollywood. He owns that kind of wealth that many find decent and many still frown at when put side by side his time and credits in the industry. Parnel’s net worth is put at three million dollars which amounts at one million dollars per ten-years. Truth be said, this is not a very inspiring return for a man who does nearly every form of entertainment. He sings too.

It is also possible that Parnel’s net worth is underestimated. Yes, a man who can hide his wife and children from the media for so long can hide pretty every other thing. For all we think we know, Mr. Parnel might be sitting on some cool twenty million dollars and laughing at the people who bought his three million dollars net worth claim hook, line, and whatnot. He lives in a 1.7 million dollars house in Silver Lake area of Los Angeles. Just to get the idea.
