Even though he is pretty busy because of his job at the CNN network, he makes sure to take out time for his family, especially his daughter.

He and Ellen exchanged marriage vows in the summer of 2015. The marriage was a beautiful ceremony and they only invited a few of their closest friends and relatives.

Ellen is the ex-wife of pro Basketball player, Vince Carter. She shares one daughter with him.

Last year, Bakari shared a picture with his wife celebrating their 1st anniversary. We could see the happiness that was covering the couple's face.

His dedication towards parenting can be seen after he took he leave from his work in order to support his daughter during her The Lions King play.

He even tweeted and told his followers that he is going to watch his daughter's play rather than surrounding himself with Hillary Clinton.

Not only a caring father, but he is also a loving husband. In their three years of marriage, not once did we heard about any problems in their conjugal life.
