“Happy New Year from the Kodjoes.” Nicole Ari Parker, Boris Kodjoe, and the kids celebrated 2017 together at home.

Boris shared a picture of him and the family hanging out on the bed. Nicolas laid his head on dad’s chest while Sophie stuck close to mom. “We are grateful for health and happiness, for family and friends, and for the chance to get up in the morning with a chance to live each day with full intention and faith,” Boris captioned. “May you all be blessed with all of the above and may we do our best this year to put our collective force behind LOVE and EMPATHY.”


Boris is a celebrity unashamedly addicted to parenthood and embraces every part of his cultural background. “My origin is from Ghana, my father is from there, in West Africa,” the actor revealed during an interview with BET.

“I was born to a white mother from Germany and a Black father from Ghana. And I represent both cultures. But at the end of the day, when I walk the earth, I walk the earth as a black man. That’s what I’m being perceived as, that’s what I look like and that’s what I feel like.”

Boris Kodjoe and Nicole Ari Parker have two kids together. Sophie will celebrate her twelfth birthday in March. Nicolas turned 10-years-old last October.
