Since Anthony is from Malaysia and Shaeley from Kansas they decided to pass on a little bit of their multicultural heritage to their children by naming their son Mal-kan, (Malaysia-Kansas) who is 13 years old, and their daughter Ka-ysia (Kansas-Malaysia) who is 10 years old. Anthony and his family enjoy traveling and camping.
