Kim Victoria Fields (born May 12, 1969) is an American actress, singer and television director. She is known for her roles as Tootie Ramsey on the NBC sitcom The Facts of Life, and as Regine Hunter on the Fox sitcom Living Single. She is the daughter of actress/director Chip Fields.
Before appearing on Facts of Life, Fields co-starred in a short-lived sitcom called Baby, I'm Back with Demond Wilson and Denise Nicholas, and appeared in a television commercial for Mrs. Butterworth's pancake syrup. She later appeared on Good Times as a friend of Penny Gordon Woods, played by Janet Jackson. Her real-life mother, Chip Fields, guest-starred on Good Times as the mother of Penny. Chip and Kim never appeared in the same episodes. Kim's episodes on Good Times were "The Snow Storm" and "The Physical."
Fields played the role of Tootie on the sitcom The Facts of Life from 1979 to 1988. Even decades later, many still recognize her catchphrase, "We're in troouu-ble!" When the show began production, Fields was so short that the producers put her on roller skates during the first season so that they could avoid difficult camera angles. Ironically, she later lost a role as Arnold Jackson's girlfriend on The Facts of Life's parent show Diff'rent Strokes because she was taller than Gary Coleman, who played Arnold.
On February 1, 2007, Fields was reunited with Lisa Whelchel on WFAA-TV's Good Morning Texas. Fields was in Dallas to promote her appearance in the production Issues: We've All Got 'Em when Whelchel was introduced as a surprise guest. It marked the first time in six years (since The Facts of Life Reunion movie) that Fields and Whelchel had seen each other.
With degree in hand from Pepperdine University, she began directing. Fields directed a number of episodes of the All That! spinoff Kenan & Kel, in which she also appeared in two episodes. She is currently working as a director on the sitcoms Tyler Perry's Meet the Browns, Tyler Perry's House of Payne and BET's Let's Stay Together.
As of May 2013, Kim Fields is Executive Producer and Director of "Whatcha Cookin'", a situational comedy being produced in Greensboro, NC at Black Network Television (BNT) where Michael Woods is the CEO.
Major cast members she is directing in this new, made for TV sitcom include Ms. Laura Hayes (Meet the Browns, Comic View, Beauty Shop), Dorien Wilson (Professor Oglevee on The Parkers, Moesha, The Steve Harvey Show), BernNadette Stanis (Thelma of Good Times, The Parent Hood, Bustin' Loose) and Smokie Norful (Grammy Award-Winning Gospel Singer and Pianist).

Kim Fields also directed "The Rickey Smiley Show".
In 1984, during the run of Facts of Life, Fields released two singles on the Critique Records label: the disco/Hi-NRG "He Loves Me He Loves Me Not" (which became a minor club hit), and "Dear Michael" (which became a minor R&B hit, reaching #50).
As of 2000, she changed her look and style considerably, sporting either a large blonde afro or platinum blonde braids or dreadlocks. She performs under the stage name of "Blondielocks" and in 2003, she released a spoken word CD of poetry (that was available online only) called Smooth is Spoken Here.
Fields was born in New York City, New York. She dated fellow Living Single cast member John Henton for one year, and was married to Johnathon Franklin Freeman from 1995 to 2001. She attended Burbank High School in California.
Fields gave birth to her first child, Sebastian Alexander Morgan, by then-boyfriend, Broadway actor Christopher Morgan, on May 4, 2007. The couple introduced their son the following week in People magazine. On July 23, 2007, they were married in a private ceremony officiated by Pastor Donnie McClurkin. On July 24, 2013, it was announced the couple's second son was on the way.  The couple welcomed their second son, Quincy Xavier Morgan, on December 3, 2013 in Atlanta, Ga.
