Rise to Fame
  • Kimberly met Ice Cube when she was in college. During that first meeting, Ice Cube admitted that he was thoroughly smitten by Kimberly’s beauty. He even approached her but she did not show any interest, probably because she was in a relationship at that time. So, Kimberly and Ice parted ways for the time being.
  • They met again about 6 months later. Around this time Kimberly was single. She warmed up to Ice and the two of them got along. They hit it off and started dating in 1988. They dated for 2 more years and got engaged in 1991. The couple finally tied the knot on April 26, 1992.
  • It would seem that Kimberly’s only achievement is to marry a husband who has found fame, but that is not quite true. Through Kimberly, Ice Cube has been blessed with a partner who has been able to boost his creativity, confidence and charisma.
  • Kimberly and Ice Cube had their first child on February 24, 1991, before they actually got married. O’shea Jackson Jr., their first-born, has grown into a talented young man, about to embark in a stellar career as an actor and rapper who has adopted the stage name OMG. He has even portrayed Ice Cube himself in the 2015 film ‘Straight Outta Compton’.
  • Their second child, son Darrell, was born in 1993, followed by daughter, Kareema, in 1994 and youngest son Shareef was born in 1996.

What Makes Kimberly So Special
  • Kimberly has been married to Ice Cube for several years now, which is no amazing feat considering they are a celebrity couple and have the spotlight trained on them continuously. In multiple interviews, Ice Cube has given all the credit for this stability to his wife. He has always considered Kimberly to be his backbone, always being supportive when things did not seem to be going right.
  • Through every crazy invasion of privacy by the media, Kimberly has successfully kept their lives sane and has provided the children with a normal childhood to let them flourish. For the years that they have been together, according to Ice Cube, every single morning he has had butterflies in his stomach each time Kimberly looked his way.
Behind The Curtains
  • Kimberly’s past is shrouded in mystery and she has been exceedingly private in her married life. Her parents’ name is not known. She has never entered into the limelight herself, except appearances on red carpets, premieres, and her husband’s music releases. But other than these, Kimberly has never attached herself with any Hollywood projects and has never been involved in any flashy show of stardom. Her sole focus has always been on her family and she has excelled at her job beyond reproach.
