LUDACRIS' WIFE, EUDOXIE

Ludacris' gorgeous leading lady was born and raised in Gabon, West Africa. Asides from being stunning and being the wife of the record executive, Eudoxie is an entrepreneur and philanthropist who loves to give back to her community and the world at large.

Back in 2014, she shared a sneak peek of the charitable work she was doing on behalf of "Unspoken Angels," an organization she founded to empower and educate young women and girls in the US and West Africa.

Her passion for charity and helping people who grew up in the kind of environment that she did drove her to write an inspirational book titled "Unspoken Angel: My Story Through Her Eyes."

HOW LUDACRIS AND EUDOXIE MET

Ludacris, whose real name is Christopher, met his wife, Eudoxie, in 2008, on "Ludaday" (a weekend tradition started by the rapper to bring celebrities and families together).

Just a few months before, the "Furious 7" actor admitted that he had resolved to have a son. While the miscarriage was not encouraging, they weren't going to give up.

Unknowingly, his Ludaday tradition brought him and his future wife together. On August 30, 2018, the couple hit the ten-year mark from the day they first met.
