Kimberly Woodruff has made a name for herself as the long-time wife of American rapper, actor, and filmmaker O’Shea Jackson Sr. aka Ice Cube. Ice Cube has raved about her on many occasions where he has been asked time and again how he managed to keep his marriage going for so long. When he spoke to Today in 2016, he said: “She is my backbone. Without her, I wouldn’t be here.”
Kimberly Woodruff Bio
Woodruff was born on 23 September 1970 in California, United States. Unlike most other celebrity wives who would jump at the first opportunity at a reality TV appearance or try to build their own show business portfolio, Kim has managed to keep her personal and professional life out of the spotlight.
Although she accompanies Cube on the red carpet and at award ceremonies, that’s pretty much what the paparazzi cameras get from her. Details of her personal and professional life are hidden from the media.
There is absolutely no information about her upbringing or her parents. But Kim really deserves some praise, it’s not easy to stay under the radar for so long, especially when you’re married to someone as popular as Ice Cube. Her outstanding personal life could most likely be the reason why her bond with Cube has lasted so long and why we respect her privacy.
Kimberly Woodruff Married/Husband
Woodruff has been married to Cube since April 26, 1992. Cube fell in love with her from the first day he saw her, but unfortunately, the feeling was not mutual, since Kim was seeing another man at that time.
“The first thing I thought was, ‘Wow, she could be your wife. When we first met, she did not feel me, she did NOT. She didn’t like me. I think she was in a relationship, so she didn’t have it,” Cube told the media about the first day he saw Woodruff.
But as fate would have it, six months after their first meeting, Kim met Cube for the second time, and this time it was different. Luckily for Cube, she had separated from her husband, so he didn’t lose any time revealing his feelings to her again.
The rapper continued;
“But I finally saw her about six months later, and next time we had more time to get to know each other. She could feel my vibrations and fell in love with your boy!”
In fact, Woodruff was in love with Cube. A few months after they dated, she had become pregnant for him and gave birth to her first son, O’Shea Jr., on February 24, 1991.
In April 1992, when O’Shea was over one year old, Cube raised the status of his wife from mother to wife. At over two decades and more, Cube says he still gets butterflies when he sees them.
“I still get butterflies when I see them. It’s a real partnership,” said Ice Cube. “I respect my wife and she respects me. I still want her to look at me and say, ‘This is the man I still want to be with.
During his many interviews, Cube revealed some facts about his wife, including this: she’s a GOOD cook: “I love the smell of cooking food. I don’t cook myself because my wife is great at it. But I can do taste tests, set the table, all that. I know my place,” the rapper told Guardian.
With searches such as Kimberly Woodruff Affairs, divorce, which are becoming increasingly common on Google, many still seem unable to believe that there hasn’t been a scandal or fear of divorce between her and Ice in all these years. But the truth is, even if there is a fear of divorce, Kim would definitely keep it away from the media and deal with it privately. At least that’s how they have endured it for so long, and here is the hope that it will last forever.
