Thankfully for the actor, his late mother was opportune to meet one of his children before her passing. According to Closer Weekly, the “Bad Boys For Life” star welcomed his first daughter, Jasmine Page with Patricia Southall in 1996.

The pair who got married in 1995 split a year after their daughter’s birth and Martin quickly moved on with Shamicka Gibbs. After some years of dating, Shamika and Martin welcomed two daughters — Amara Trinity and Iyanna Faith — and walked down the aisle in July 2010. That union didn’t last very long as Martin filed for divorce in April 2012.

While Jasmine is well-known for posting modeling pictures on Instagram, Iyanna is a college student. Meanwhile, Amara is reportedly keen on starting on a new path after she attended her high school prom in May 2019.

It would be recalled that Martin gained significant acclaim after he landed his first lead role with the 1995 film, “Bad Boys.” Entertainment Weekly reported that the action-comedy outdid itself at the box office by making more than $140 million.

Five years after that success, Martin appeared on “Big Momma’s House” with a large number of people finding his type of “crude but endearing comedy” pleasurable.

Biography noted that the actor would go on to rehash his character in “Bad Boys II,” “Big Momma's House 2,” and “Big Mommas: Like Father, Like Son." Amid all the acclaim he enjoyed, Martin also suffered a few run-ins with the law.

According to his IMDb page, he was arrested in 1996 for carrying a loaded gun in his suitcase while at the airport. Luckily for him, he escaped charges following his claim that he had no idea that guns weren’t permitted on domestic flights.
