Catching Up With The Kodjoes

Thursday, June 11, 2009

note: Saw Nicole Ari Parker yesterday at the Whole Foods on Ponce, made me want to blog 'em.
Forget about "Meet the Browns," when it comes to an authentic family in entertainment there are many, but the Kodjoes and their struggles with their daughter's illness have shed new light on what it means to be a celebrity.
The Kudjoes consist of actor-model dad Boris Kodjoe, actress mom and Baltimore native Nicole Ari Parker, and Sophie Tee-Naaki, 3, and 2-year-old Nicolas Neruda Kodjoe.
Boris' full name is Frederic Cecil Tay-Natey Ofuatey-Kodjoe (Ghanian father, German-Jewish mother).
The Atlanta family has been outspoken about their daughter's battle with spina bifida, and have appeared at various events to raise awareness.
While the couple have curtailed their careers for family, Nicole is actually in the new Eddie Murphy film "Imagine That,"
She was recently interviewed about the movie and her daughter's illness, in which she said: "I think the hardest part [of dealing with her daughter's illness] is to not worry about the future, and to just believe that she'll be okay when she's not under the care and love of mommy and daddy. That's really the hardest part, to not fill the house with worry and fear."
Boris and Nicole are very busy with their foundation,Sophie's Voice to garner support for education on the illness and also for other parents and sufferers of the disease to see the financial toll of treating it.
