Kodjoe, 45, and Parker, 47, met on the set of the Showtime series, which was based on the 1997 hit film of the same name. The two co-starred as love interests before Kodjoe’s character was written off the show but that didn’t stop them from getting romantic in real life.  The couple wed in 2005 and welcomed two children together, daughter Sophie and son Nicolas. 

Over the years, the two have never stopped making their love a priority and sharing that it takes work to keep the happiness coming. 

Happy anniversary you two, and here’s to many more!
