Actress Nicole Ari Parker made her debut on the Season 8 premiere of Chicago P.D., and she obtained popularity among fans in a record-short time frame. Nicole plays Samantha Miller, a quick-thinking deputy superintendent who isn't afraid to ask some difficult questions about how the force operates. According to some fans, she and Hank Voight (Jason Beghe) have serious potential. But what's there to know about Nicole's life off-screen? Who is her husband?
Nicole Ari Parker met her husband on the set of 'Soul Food.'
A seasoned duo, they also appeared together in a movie, Downsized, and a TV show, Second Time Around. In fact, it was through work that they first met. They started dating while shooting Season 1 of Soul Food, and they haven't looked back since.
As Boris told the New York Post in 2015, they first got talking on the set of Soul Food, but they were all too wary of dating co-workers.
"At first we were very hesitant because we were aware of the cliché [of actors falling in love] and we didn’t want to fall into that. We fought it until the whole crew begged us to finally get together," Boris told the outlet.
Nicole and Boris got married in 2005. Although they made plans for an elaborate wedding ceremony in Los Angeles, they made a U-turn, opting for an intimate-feeling wedding bash with 85 of their nearest and dearest in Gundelfingen, Germany, instead.
"I called my mother and I said, 'I want to get married in my grandmother's backyard,'" Boris said.
"I always wanted a fairy-tale wedding and where [Boris] is from, it's like a storybook. A mountain town in the Black Forest. I was waiting for Hansel and Gretel to come out. I had a horse and carriage. My dad gave me away. We got married in a 900-year-old church. The women from the Bavarian houses with the wooden shutters threw roses on us as we walked through the cobblestone streets. We had 85 guests. Perfection," Nicole added.
Nicole and Boris celebrated their 15th wedding anniversary on May 21, 2020. It seems like their relationship is rock-solid. Total couple goals!
Nicole and Boris have two kids named Sophie and Nicolas.
Nicole and Boris welcomed Sophie Tei Naaki Lee on March 5, 2005. Sophie was born with spina bifida, a condition where the baby's spine and spinal cord fail to develop properly in the womb.
"We were jumpstarted into how to be partners," Nicole told Southbay. "We had to deal with heavy responsibilities very early on."
Their son, Nicolas Neruda, was born on Oct. 31, 2006.
So, how much is Nicole's net worth?
As a successful actress, model, and entrepreneur, Nicole likely earns a handsome amount. According to most estimates, she is likely worth around $5 million. Nicole has yet to disclose her personal assets, however.
Most outlets claim that Boris's net worth falls somewhere between $5 and $8 million. Much like Nicole, he has yet to share details about his income, savings, and investments with the public.
