Nicole Parker, Boris Kodjoe, and their two beautiful children. I think they are such a lovely family. My heart goes out to them though because their daughter, who is only 3 years old, is diagnosed with Spina Bifida (a developmental birth defect involving the neural tube: incomplete closure of the embryonic neural tube results in an incompletely formed spinal cord). I know it must be hard for any parent to have to watch their child fight any type of serious illness. Thankfully it has been reported that she is doing better since having a major surgery done back in 2005.
