Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker began their relationship when they were co-stars on the television series "Soul Food." They have been married for 10 years, as of 2015, and they are the parents of two children.
Boris Kodjoe met Nicole Ari Parker in 2000, when they both began filming on the Showtime television series. While Kodjoe admits to feeling an immediate attraction, Parker gave him a difficult time in the beginning. They eventually began dating, and he proposed to her during a trip to his hometown in Germany.
Shortly after becoming engaged, the couple learned that they were expecting a baby. Their oldest child, a daughter named Sophie, was born with spina bifida. The couple was very vocal abut their daughter's condition. Together, they created a foundation to spread awareness and raise research funding.
In May 2005 the couple returned to Germany for their wedding. It was Kodjoe's first marriage and Parker's second. Their youngest child, a boy named Nicholas, was born in October 2006.
The couple primarily resides in Los Angeles, where Kodjoe and Parker continue their individual acting careers. In addition, they have worked on several professional projects together, such as the television show "Second Time Around," which aired on the UPN network for one season. In 2015, the couple teamed up to host a daily talk show, "The Boris and Nicole Show."
