Deborah Cox puckers up to plant a tender kiss on her hubby, producer and songwriter Lascelles Stephens, whom she’s known since high school. The two reunited as music partners and fell in love in 1994, but didn’t marry until 2001.
“We knew six months into our relationship that we were going to get married,” says Cox, who married her love in Negril, Jamaica, seven years after he proposed.
