Celebrities have the responsibility to lead a double life; their life on-screen and off-screen. This is not a shock, but a fact that is out there in the public eye. We pretty much get to see one part of their lives as a whole, but the other part not so much. So let’s take a look behind the scenes today and learn more about the Ice Cube family and the place they call home.
Ice Cube’s Wife and Family
Her name is Kimberly Woodruff and she has been married to Ice Cube for over 2 decades. She really is the definition of “Ride or Die” because she has gone through thick and thin with the star. She was with him when the “Ice Cube” brand was just a dream. It’s only fitting that we take a moment to travel back in time and see how they got to where they are today.
When Ice first saw the woman who would one day be his wife, he was taken with her. Kim, on the other hand, was not so much, she was even with another woman at that time, and as such, she didn’t think much of him. Here is what he had to say about it.
The first thing I thought was, “Wow, she could be your wife, when we first met, she didn’t feel me, but next time we had more time to get to know each other. This only proves that patience is the key because after six months the paths of the two crossed again and they got along well.
Kimberly was single, and it just clicked: On February 24, 1991, they had their first child, O’Shea Jr. The next year, on April 26, 1992, they officially made the Covenant of Life and became man and wife. We don’t know much about her, because it’s obvious that she tries hard not to be in the spotlight, but as much as we know, she has been more than supportive throughout her husband’s career.
The star does not hesitate to rave about them when it has the chance. In an interview with Willie Geist for Sunday TODAY, he said: “She is my backbone, without her I would not be here.
He added: “It is a real partnership. I respect my wife and she respects me. I still get butterflies when I see them. Romance and sex need not fade. I still want her to look at me and say, “That’s the man I still want to be with.

O’Shea holds a degree from the University of Southern California, where he studied screenwriting. Well, that should come in handy. He is currently following in his father’s footsteps, pursuing a career in the music industry. So far he has released his first mixtape, Jackin’ for Beats, online.
The couple had their second son, Darrell Jackson, on 29 December 1992. Like his father and brother, Darrell Jackson is pursuing a career in the music industry.

Ice Cube’s House
There is no doubt that due to its success, Ice Cube can afford a little more luxury when it comes to housing conditions. Last year, he bought a house in Marina del Rey, California, for $7.25 million According to Trulia Reports, he bought the house from another notable figure. If you guessed it was Jean-Claude Van Damme, you guessed right.
