Nicole Parker and husband Boris Kodjoe, who met on the television series Soul Food, have welcomed their second child, son Nicolas Neruda Kodjoe.
Little Nicolas Neruda was born on Tuesday in Atlanta at 11:13 a.m. Nicole, 36, and Boris, 33, already have a 19-month-old daughter, Sophie.
The couple, who also starred together in the UPN series Second Time Around, were married in Gundelfingen, Boris’s hometown in Germany’s Black Forest, in May 2005.
“Our kids are going to be bilingual,” Kodjoe told People magazine at the time. “So that’s going to be a whole other tradition that I’m going to try to uphold.”
While discussing his relationship with Nicole and their successful careers, Boris, told People magazine in 2004: “I count my blessings every day. I really have to pinch myself every once in a while. It’s like, ‘Wow! This is really my life.’”
Recently, Nicole revealed the inspiration for their son-to-be’s name, saying they’ve picked Boris’ father’s middle name, which Nicole says, “is African, but sounds the same in English.” It means “big.”
Sophie also has an African middle name – Tei-Naaki, which is Ghanaian for “first born daughter.”
