Meet Ice Cube’s Wife and Son

Ice Cube is a successful actor and rapper who with tenacity and firmness of purpose has done well for himself. For the kind of success he’s found in his career, one would think he would get involved in some baby mama dramas or dramatic romantic affairs. But if there is one thing the star has taught us, it is how to have a large home that is built on love and respect.

He married Kimberly Woodruff in 1992 and they have been together ever since. Till date, the star still gives a flow of speech about his wife at any chance he gets. He calls her his backbone and says she still gives him butterflies when he sees her.

Although not much is known about her as she avoids earning public attention, it is pretty obvious that she has been a supportive wife and mother.  She has held on Cube through good and bad times. She was with him when the Ice Cube brand was still a dream. The two have four children and among them is O’Shea Jackson Jr, also known as OMG.

His son O’Shea is the second oldest. He was born on February 24, 1991. OMG grew up in San Fernando Valley. As a rapper and actor, O’Shea shares a lot in common with his dad. He even played a very significant role in the 2015 biopic “Straight Outta Compton”. The movie was based on the rise and fall of his dad’s gangsta group named N.W.A. The role, which was O’Shea’s first appearance in the film industry has placed him in the spotlight.
