With his current wife, Omar Epps has three children — learn more about his family life.
Omar Hashim Epps and Keisha Epps, an R&B singer, have been married for fifteen years. They’ve also had the honor of becoming parents to three beautiful children – two daughters and a son throughout that period.
Fifteen years of friendship
Omar and Keisha first met and began dating in 1992. However, the couple only dated for a short time before breaking up. In fact, the actor revealed in an interview with Black Doctor Organization that he had thought of her as “the one who got away” for years.
They reconciled after a while, and the lovely couple has now been married for fifteen years, having married in February 2006. On February 11, 2021, the legendary actor rushed to Instagram to wish his wife a happy anniversary.
He shared a lovely mirror image of Keisha, who was dressed in a matching cream hoodie and trousers with grey sneakers. Her hair was pulled back into a bun, and she wore huge hoop earrings and minimal makeup. Omar called his life partner the supermom, the family’s matriarch, and a great human being.
He also praised God in the post for allowing him to share his life’s journey with Keisha, whom he described as a “real beacon of light and love” in his life. Omar praised his wife for being a fantastic mother to his three children and a wonderful friend to everyone she cared about. With many laughing emojis, he even jokingly referred to Keisha as a “damn freak.”
He also expressed his desire to spend “three more fifteen” minutes with his lovely wife. He also claimed that he loves Keisha despite their life’s challenges and “ebbs and flows.” Omar believes that their best days are still to come. The hashtags #MyAngel #TenToesDown and # We’reDeepRooted were used at the end of the caption by the New York native.
“You brighten up my life babe,” Keisha, 49, responded with much red heart emojis in-kind response. Since he posted the photo, the comment area has been flooded with congratulations. “Happy Anniversary you guys!!!” said American actress Tasha Smith. “I adore you both.” “Congrats fam, Love y’all,” one user said. “Happy Anniversary Epps,” read another note.
Three children to be proud of
Aiyanna, 21, (his eldest daughter from his former marriage with Kalima), K’Mari Mae, 16, (his younger daughter), and Amir, 13, are the couple’s three gorgeous children (youngest and only son).
While Aiyanna is in college, her younger sister, K’Mari Mae, wishes to follow in her mother’s footsteps and become a successful singer. Amir, their kid, aspires to be an actor like his father.
The multiple award winner claimed in a 2009 interview with WebMD magazine that his children were as dedicated and disciplined as he was and that if they set their goals, they would achieve them.
In 2017, Omar’s ex-wife died.
The Love and Basketball star was previously married to Kalima before marrying Keisha. After a few years of marriage, the couple eventually divorced. Aiyanna, the couple’s oldest daughter, was born to them.
She, unfortunately, died in January of 2017. On the second anniversary of her biological mother’s death, Aiyanna posted a series of photos with her on Instagram. She disclosed in the post that she misses and loves her mother and that she thinks about her every day.
She also mentioned how Kalima motivates her to be a better person, live a life without regrets, be compassionate, and have fun. In honor of her late mother, Aiyanna also established her little candle business, Kalima Candles.
