American actor, comedian Jamie Foxx has revealed why he will never get married. The actor spoke openly and honestly about marriage and fatherhood and admitted he has never been married because it never seemed right for him.
He explained that the ‘traditional’, ‘cookie cutter’ lifestyle with the ‘2.5 children, the wood paneling on the station wagon and the cottage, I didn’t think that was for me’. Jamie also believes his relationship with his children is stronger because he was never married to their mothers.
The comedian has two daughters: Corrine Foxx, 27, and Annalise Bishop, 12, from his relationships with Connie Kline and Kristin Grannis respectively. Jamie Foxx says that he and his children ‘came together more’ when his relationship with their mothers ended.
‘I don’t know what that is, I just know that it is different but it’s a whole lot of love,’ he told E News’ Daily Pop. When a marriage comes to an end, he says, ‘the kids get fractures from their families’. The actor and author admitted his family doesn’t talk to him about ‘the pressure of him being married’, despite him having been in several long-term relationships, most recently with Katie Holmes.
The pair eventually called time on their relationship in 2019 after spending six years together. As for his daughters, they’re in no rush to see their father get married, Jamie Foxx says: ‘They just love their daddy and I just keep moving.’
