BIOGRAPHY

Carla May Wilks is the mother of Anastasia Steele. Ana describes her mother as being flighty, forgetful, self-centered, and easily bored. She has "the attention span of a goldfish", especially with respect to her hobbies that she tries to turn into business ideas.

 

IN THE BOOKS

The exact names and dates of Carla's marriages are given in the bonus material of Fifty Shades Freed, when Christian requests a background check on Ana. Carla and her first husband, Franklin Lambert, married very young: Carla was nineteen years old. Ana was born six months after their wedding. (Carla was in labor for seventeen hours for Ana's birth.) Franklin was a Marine, and was killed in a training exercise a mere day after Ana was born. Carla's second husband, Raymond Steele, also served in the military. Ana considers him to be her "real" father. When Carla divorced Ray and married her third husband, Ana chose to stay with Ray in Montesano, WA, rather than moving to Texas with her mom. Carla and Ray are able to be cordial to one another after their divorce, even dancing together at Ana's wedding.

Carla's marriage to her third husband, Stephen M. Morton, was a short lived one. She is very unwilling to discuss him, and considers that marriage to be a mistake. Carla's fourth and current husband, Bob, is significantly older than her. He appears to be stable, rational, and grounded. They live near Savannah, Georgia.
