Their children were his biggest pride 

Ford's biggest pride was his two beautiful kids. 

In May 2007, while speaking about his family and inheritance, he said the first part of his life was about his career and how to make money. 

God provided him an opportunity to do so, but once he had kids, it was all about them. 

It is about passing the inheritance, the wisdom, and all that experience God has given him. 

The foundation and the wisdom that his father passed on to him is such a natural response to hand to his children, he said at the time.

“I have done over 200 episodes on television, have done film, 100 of plays, won many awards, made money, but my biggest pride is my babies”, he continued. 

When he was asked how he balances life between career and family, he said it’s about making time and about prioritizing.

How did her ex-husband pass away?

Her ex-husband, who is also a father of her two kids, passed away on the 12th of October at the age of just 52

The cause of his death was a ruptured abdominal aneurysm. He died at Atlanta Hospital just after two weeks of his knee surgery.

Before his death, he was in a relationship with his girlfriend, actress, and model, Viviane Brazil, with whom he started dating soon after his divorce.

In his last interview, Ford talked about death, which seemed he knew he was likely to leave this world. 

In a video obtained by TMZ, he was saying that more than half of his life is over. He got more years behind him than he has ahead of him. 

Half of his life is over, and he is OK with that, he said in an interview with Xcellence Community Magazine founder Angella Banks.

It’s not about how much he got left, It’s how much he accomplished while he was there, he said in recorded audio.

When did Ford realize that acting was his true calling?

Born in Los Angeles to his mother, a school secretary, and father, a pipe fitter, Ford realized at an early age that acting was his true calling though he, as a child, wanted to be a preacher. 

While growing up in Long Beach, California, he went to Christian schools from pre-school to all the way up until he was a freshman in high school. 

His teachers put him in the play while in eighth grade for a farewell performance for the rest of the students. 

According to Ford, his folks forgot the line, they forgot the props, and everything was wrong, but he still fell in love with it because it was just very natural to him, and he knew acting was what he wanted to do, but the transition only happened after he finished college. 

He graduated with a Bachelor of Fine Arts degree in acting from the University of Southern California.

Her exact net worth is currently under review. Her ex-husband had a net worth of $2 million at the time of his death.


  1. She was born on March 13, 1963, in Kingston, Jamaica. She is currently 60 years old.
