Nicole Ari Parker is ringing in her fellow actor and husband’s Boris Kodjoe’s birthday in a loving yet steamy way.
The star of Fox’s “Empire” uploaded a side-by-side shot of a shirtless Kodjoe as a young model in the 1990s and now as a 46-year-old actor.
“26 🔥🔥🔥🔥on the runway… then… (Life Camera Action A hit tv show where you meet One amazing hot wife 💃🏽 Two kids, 👫🏽4000 sleepless nights Drama, Tears, Laughter, Dancing, Singing, Loss, Gain, Happiness, More Happiness, 26 Parent/Teacher conferences, A dog 🐕 & 20 rotations around the Sun…) Now 46… Still 🔥 Still💯 Still 👑. Thank you God for all the moments that led to this one. Happy Birthday My ❤,” Parker lovingly wrote in the caption of the Friday, March 8 photo.
The post led to lots of wishes in celebration of the “Station 19” actor’s 46th trip around the sun.
“Happy blessed birthday🎉”
“So sweet!! Happy birthday to your king!”
“Happy 🎂 handsome have a blessed and wonderful day🎆🎆🎂🎂💝💝🎊🎊🎈🎈🎉🎉🎁🎁👑👑💖💖🔥🔥💞💞😘😘love ALWAYS.”
But others just zeroed in on how his abs have remained so chiseled and he’s looked even better after all these years.
“He is aging like thee finest wine. 🤟🏽🤟🏽”
“You sure know how to pick them… He’s Like fine wine 🍷 …better with time.”
“@boriskodjoe looks better at 46 than 26, if that’s even possible #smokinhot.”
“Uhh @nicoleariparker we get it. Your husband is fine… Damn😫😫”
Parker and Kodjoe wed in 2005 after they met on the set of the Showtime series “Soul Food,” which is based on the 1997 film.
“When Boris walked into our first rehearsal, I thought of him as the really hot guy that got to play my boyfriend in the first couple episodes,” she said to Denim magazine in a cover story for its 2011 holiday issue. “But for some reason, we connected and found it easy to talk to each other and laugh and be comfortable… and then I married him. Vanessa [Williams] called it from the beginning just like a sister would.”
Since then, the two have only grown closer, having welcomed two children, daughter Sophie, 14, and son Nicolas, 12. They’ve even worked together on movies like TVOne’s “Downsized” the comedy series “Second Time Around” and a brief stint as TV talk show hosts of “The Boris and Nicole Show.”
