Boris on fatherhood:
"Children didn't choose to be here. Therefore, as parents, we have the responsibilty to make their start as prosperous as possible. Give them every opportunity to make it to the top. Every child has a right to have a mother and a father."
On having his child, Sophie, prior to his marriage to actress Nicole Ari Parker:
"The marriage was planned and on the books. We really didn't worry about timing. Both things are a blessing and however they occcur, that's fine with us."
On his parents marriage:
"Kodjoe's parenting style also leaves no room for excuses. Sure, his parents were married and divorced twice. And, he spent more time growing up with his White German mother than his Ghanaian father, but, he says, that's no reason to think negatively about his own marriage to Parker and his committment to their children."
