While some actors find fame later in life, Kyla Pratt didn’t have the same experience. At age 8, she began her career by starring in commercials for Nike and other brands. Since then, Kyla has appeared and starred in several TV shows and films, from Sister, Sister and The Proud Family to the Doctor Doolittle flicks.
Now, fans can't help but wonder: What is Kyla’s current net worth? Here's what we know.
What is Kyla Pratt’s net worth?
Kyla currently has a reported net worth of $3 million, mostly earned from acting. After appearing in multiple commercials, Kyla eventually got her start in television work. The actress’s first guest spot was on a show called Where I Live in 1993. Kyla went on to do more projects, with roles on Living Single, ER, Walker, Texas Ranger, Touched by an Angel, and more.
In the late ‘90s, she navigated between film and television with movie roles in the Doctor Dolittle and Barney’s Great Adventure, among others. By the 2000s, though, Kyla landed the lead character in One on One. Soon, she simultaneously starred in One on One as Breanna Barnes while lending her voice to Disney Channel’s The Proud Family as Penny Proud.

In 2012, she returned to TV in BET’S Let’s Stay Together. Then, in 2022, Kyla came back to The Proud Family for its Disney Plus reboot, The Proud Family: Louder and Prouder. In an interview promoting the new show, Kyla said she had no idea how vital seeing those characters was to Black girls back in 2001.
"I didn’t realize at 14 years old that we needed that type of representation,” she told Elle in February 2022. “That wasn’t my thought process at that time."
"At that time, I was just a young girl who was a teenager who wanted to be around her friends but also had an amazing job and got to act," she continued. "I didn’t realize until years later the impact that The Proud Family had on me, mainly because people would always come up to me and let me know how much of an impact it had on them. It made me realize that representation matters so much.”
Is Kyla Pratt married?
Although she’s been in the public eye most of her career, Kyla only recently began discussing her life away from the cameras. In 2019, the private actress appeared in Black Ink Crew: Compton with her longtime partner, Danny “KP” Kirkpatrick. In 2010, Kyla gave birth to the couple’s first daughter, Lyric, followed by their second child, Liyah, in 2013.
While they seemingly haven’t made their relationship legal yet, the actress said she prioritizes their relationship and family as much as her established career.
“I’m all about your mindset, being focused, staying positive, being optimistic, and knowing that these are all aspects of my life that I love and enjoy,” Kyla told Ebony in 2014 about finding balance. “I have to nurture each of those relationships and give those relationships a great amount of time.”
