Sean Patrick Thomas and his wife, Aonika Laurent, are proud parents to two kids who look just like them—here's all you need to know about the lovely family.


Sean Patrick Thomas is an American actor popularly known for his roles in "Save the Last Dance" and "Barbershop."

He is married to popular actress Aonika Laurent, and together they share two kids, Lola Jolie Thomas and Luc Laurent Thomas.

Lola, who is the first child, was given birth to on May 16, 2008, weighing in at 7lbs, while her brother, Luc, came two years later—he was born on June 9, 2010.

Earlier this year, the "Olympus has fallen" actress shared a cute photo of her boy and girl standing next to each other holding ice cream. Laurent captioned the post,

"Sunday Love. #LolaEtLuc #teacollection #style #ootd #lovesofmylife @seanpthomas."


At just nine years old, little Luc is already a performing gymnast, and his mom couldn't be any prouder. She shared a video of the boy's performance, expressing support for his chosen path.

Laurent is always posting photos of the kids on her page, telling fans of their achievements and listing their enviable qualities.


Last year she took to her Instagram page to share a throwback photo of herself and her two kids balanced on a neon-colored bicycle.

She and little Lola had on matching floral gowns while Luc was dressed in a white T-shirt and wine-colored shorts. In her captions, she revealed that the photo was taken exactly a year ago.


In May 2019, the 49-year-old mother of two celebrated her daughter's birthday. She took to her Instagram page to share several pictures of the beautiful girl while praising her for being smart, graceful, and determined.

Later in June, she celebrated her son, Luc's birthday, with a series of pictures and videos that featured him engaged in various activities, including gymnastics.


She wished him a happy birthday in her caption and expressed her pride in his achievements, calling him her "superhero."

Thomas and Laurent initially met at a party thrown by "Barbershop" director Tim Story; they hit it off and on Saturday, April 22, 2006, they tied the knot in New Orleans.

The ceremony had originally been slated for the fall of 2005; however, it was shifted because of Hurricane Katrina, so the couple had to wait to get married in their favorite city—which also happens to be Laurent's hometown.
