Keyshia Cole and Daniel Gibson are happily married, and they want to keep it that way. The loving couple recently revealed to Essence that they work hard to keep their relationship on the up and up. “Being happily married takes work, so it’s not like, we’re just happy all the time. But we’re just growing and learning each other constantly. We’re just having so much fun with DJ. The smile that he puts on our faces every day is amazing,” said Cole who has been married to Daniel Sr. for more than a year.
Daniel also gave his tips to building a happy relationship saying, “As men, I think that you have to understand that it takes work to be married. You can’t expect everything to be perfect in your marriage. If that’s the person you’re married to, you have to love ‘em enough to be able to accept whatever flaws they have. You have to take the good with the bad and I think for some people, at the first sign of bad they run the other way. But that’s not what marriage is. I think we handle that well. Whenever face adversity, we scrap. But then, I think that’s what love is. You figure it out and then you grow together. That’s what it comes down to,” explained the ‘Cavaliers’ player.
So why did Keyshia Cole choose someone like Daniel to be her husband? “Well, first and foremost, he still has his mother and he has his father and he treats his mother amazing. I noticed that first. I also noticed how much of a gentleman he was and how strongly he believes in God and Jesus and Baby Jesus. Of course, how he treats DJ. Our family is just growing. I’m just so happy that he’s here with me.”
The singer went on to say, “It’s such a dangerous world out there. I mean it really is. You never know people’s intentions or their motives. So when you find somebody that you really know truly loves you, and you truly love, I think it’s really worth going through the battle of learning each other and what to do and not to do, and trying to love that person unconditionally, regardless of anything. It’s really worth it. It is. It really is.”
Fans can catch Keyshia, Daniel, and their son DJ on their own reality show, ‘Keyshia and Daniel: Family First,’ every Tuesday at 10pm on BET’s network. DJ is the couple’s first child together.
