Chris ‘Ludacris’ Bridge is a newlywed. He married his longtime love, Eudoxie Mbouguiengue, in December, and the two are expecting their first child together.
The couple stepped out at the Furious 7’s L.A. premiere on April 1st.
Ludacris, who plays Tej in the franchise, celebrated the premiere by Instagramming, “The oh so beautiful @eudoxiee #Furious7.”
Here’s what you need to know about the woman who stole the rapper-turned-actor’s heart.
1. She Got Engaged & Married to Luda In the Same Month
On December 26th, he arranged to have the words, “Eudoxie, will you marry me” illuminated in blue on a grass field that she could see from the plane they were aboard at the time.
“She didn’t say yes. She said HELL YES! #milehighproposal,” he wrote on Instagram. In an interview with Ellen, he said, “I look at myself as a pretty romantic guy. I’m a creative guy. You gotta be creative, you gotta be different. And these things stick with women for the rest of their lives so I had to go above and beyond.”
They tied the knot just two weeks after proposing. Luda captioned the above Instagram photo with, “Why wait? Did the thing before 2015. #mrandmrsbridges.”
People assumed he rush to marry due to custody problems with his ex, Tamika Fuller. TMZ reported, “Luda is gunning to win full custody of their 1-year-old daughter Cai. He claims he’s a better parent and has the means to provide her with a better life.”
In an interview with Sway’s Universe, he said, “I got married for all the right reasons,” he said. “Because this is my best friend. Because we wanted to make the union with God. It has absolutely nothing to do with a child custody case, period.”
2. She Announced Her Pregnancy on Instagram
On March 1st, they delivered the good news on social media. She posted this picture, with Ludacris kissing her baby bump, and Luda later reposted. She captioned it, “Beautiful day on the beach,”
This will be the third child for Ludacris, who has two daughters — Cai, 1, with Fuller, and Karma, 14, with Christine White.
3. She Founded a Nonprofit
The West African native endured verbal, mental and sexual abuse during her life. She founded this organization to counsel women of the U.S. and West Africa who have suffered abuse, like she did.
On their website, it describes the organization as “determined to support, educate, inspire and empower women of the United States and West Africa, as it provides safe and comforting environments, infused with positive initiatives for females who have experienced verbal, mental and sexual abuses.”
4. She Responded to Butt Implant Rumors
After there was speculation that she got butt implants, she responded by posting their throwback shots to prove that she has always been the same size.
Ludacris re-posted one of her picture with the caption, “My woman’s body is all real, yo woman’s body is all made up!”
She Can Sing Too
She posted a video of her singing along to “Diabetes” by Keche featuring Bisa K’dei. The musicians are also from Ghana.
According to Daily Life Ghana, the video went viral in Ghana.
Ludacris must have been proud of the accomplishment. Watch the video of one of his own hits, 2001’s “Rollout (My Business).”
