Ealy described his private life in an interview with Wendy Williams in 2016, saying,

“I don’t live my social life. I don’t waste any of it on social media. I’m not living this lifestyle, in fact. At the same time, ever since I was in high school, I have been quiet. People are thinking, Oh, you are in Hollywood, I’m saying, No, no, no. If you know me in high school, so you know that. I’ve found that if you want to work with something if it means too much to you, keep it to yourself.”

In an interview with Steve Harvey in November 2016, Ealy announced that he welcomed a second child. He said,

“A whole new passion I have just found. That’s something I have never before felt. I wondered if as much as I love my son, would I love another child. I have not only loved her but much more, within hours of my daughter’s birth. It is an exceptional kind of love of security.”
