With the number of interracial unions having risen in the US, comes a rise in mixed race kids. And if there is a place where interracial relationships seem to have flourished – even under media scrutiny and criticisms from the world, then it’s Hollywood and the likes of it.
How many famous interracial couples do you know and love? How many do you admire and want to have the love that they have? Well, I have compiled a list of a few who still cant take their hands off each other and have mixed race kids to prove how busy they have been. Well, here are some I always find quite interesting…
1. David Bowie & Supermodel Iman
These two had to be our first couple because they have been married for a whole 19 years. Talk about long lasting interracial love! “I still fancy him and he makes me laugh like no one else does”, she says. Well, this Somalian born beauty and her singer husband have a 10 year old daughter, Alexandria Zahra Jones.
2. Robin Thicke and Paula Patton
He says she wasn’t into him when he had his eye on her. He had to chase after her. And when he finally caught up with her, she kept him secret from her high school friends. She admitted to having missed her high school prom for fear of being seen with a white boy. Well, that aside, the singer, Thicke and his high school actress sweetheart have been happily married since 2005 and have a baby, Julian Fuego Thicke, who joined this crazy world of ours in April of last year.
3. Heidi Klum and Seal
This pair is one of a kind. They get remarried every year by renewing their vows in front of their kids as the sun sets. The model and TV host Heidi Klum got married to this R&B singer in 2005. Together they have been blessed with three children: sons Henry Gunther Admola Dashtu Samuel, 5, Johan Riley Gyodor Taiwo Samuel, 4, and daughter Lou Sulola Samuel, 1. I want their love man!
4. Paul Wall and Crystal Slayton
When she met him, the only thing coming in between them was the grills. He told her they were permanent and she never saw him without them for like 3 months. Well, apparently, aside from the grills and gold teeth, Texas rapper Paul Wall is a family man. The two got married in 2005 and had their son William Patrick Slayton in 2006. She was glad to know his grills came off… probably glad to have looked past the shiny metallic mouth.
5. Kimora Lee and Djimon Hounsou
She has diamonds in every color. But those weren’t as nourishing to her soul as her husband is. Even with her life on the fab lane, 2 mixed race girls from her previous marriage to Russel Simmons, the Baby Phat CEO and actor husband Djimon still had space for a baby boy Kenzo Lee, born in May of 2009. “I just never thought it could be this good”, is all she can say.
6. Taye Diggs and Idina Menzel
Having been married since 2003, this actor/actress duo have had their fair share of criticisms and negative attitudes about their interracial marriage. They have a baby boy Walker Nathaniel Diggs born in 2009 September.
Don’t you just love them?
