They share two children K'Mari Epps born in July 2004 and Amir Epps born in 2007 including his daughter Aiyanna Epps from his previous relationship born in 1999.

Upon asking what is the secret about their long-lasting relation, Epps said,

“For us, we just took breaking up off the table. That changed the whole dynamic of how we argue, solve problems, everything. It changes everything during the tough times. But I honestly still like my girl. You can love someone but not like them. I still like her. I still have that cute and innocent type of love for her.”

He adds,

“I feel my sexiest when, we’re going out and my wife gives me that look like, ‘you’re going to get(some) when we get home.’”

The couple so far seems to be so in love and we wish them to be together forever!!
