WHO IS AONIKA?
The New Orleans native was born in 1971, and just like her hubby, Laurent owns a commendable Hollywood profile. Her acting credits include 2005's hero movie, "Fantastic Four," and 2013's "Olympus Has Fallen," among others.
Aonika is also a reality star as she and her spouse were featured on Instyle's 2007 "Celebrity Weddings" show. When it comes to showing "Black Love," Laurent and Sean are one of the celebrity couples applauded.
Back in 2006, Aonika and the "Barbershop" star tied the knot in a New Orleans ceremony on a peaceful Saturday. The lovers had earlier planned a 2005 celebration, which was to hold at the actress's hometown, but they had to make adjustments due to Hurricane Katrina.
Sean Patrick Thomas and Aonika are among the black couples celebrated in Hollywood.
In 2008, the couple became first-time parents to a baby girl, Lola Jolie, who weighed 7lbs at birth. The excited dad told People at the time, "Now I have two gorgeous girls to love." 2010 saw the couple expecting a new addition to the family.
When it comes to displaying affection, the 49-year-old actor and his spouse never hesitate to. On Aonika's Instagram page, it is evident that the star mom heavily dotes on her mini-mes and wouldn't mind a fun bicycle ride with them!
The show of love with her hubby is not lacking as well because the movie star always has her fans gushing over the sweet and cuddly pictures, the couple poses for. The "Lie to Me" actor and his wife also never fail to take time out to enjoy each other's company.
Sean Patrick Thomas and Aonika are among the black couples celebrated in Hollywood, and at certain times they have sat down to share tidbits about how they get by.
In an interview with OWNTV's "Black Love," the two happily recounted how they met, and fans would be surprised that the "The Fountain" star had bloopers!
It happened that Thomas had been at the "Barber's Shop" party when a friend introduced Laurent to him, but because he was on the phone, he didn't pay much attention.
Aonika chipped at this point that it was "unacceptable," as she had felt slighted, but in the end, they became lovers, 14 years later and still counting.
