Actor Boris Kodjoe, 47, is one proud husband in an Instagram post he shared on September 23. He uploaded a screenshot of a news article confirming that his wife Nicole Ari Parker, 49, is joining Season 8 of the hit TV crime series, "Chicago P.D."

He also did not forget to mention how "hot" his wife is, even jokingly requesting his wife, through his hashtags to bring her handcuffs home as part of her research for her new role.

The photo used in the article showed Parker wearing red lipstick and smiling at the camera. She let her wavy locks fall over her shoulder and cover part of her chest.

Kodjoe and Parker, who went to a gala for their first date, have been married for over a decade.

The actor's sweet and amusing post has so far garnered more than 27,000 likes as of this writing, with fans inundating the comment section with praises and best wishes for the celebrity couple.

Parker, who made a name for herself after starring in the 1995 independent film "The Incredibly True Adventure of Two Girls in Love," will be stepping into the role of Deputy Superintendent Samantha Miller on NBC's "Chicago P.D."

The "Empire" alumna's new role is a progressive and staunch proponent of police reform. Adding Miller to the show's characters seems to be the show's reaction to criticisms thrown at police drama shows following George Floyd's death.

In the aftermath of Floyd's death in the hands of Minneapolis police, nationwide protests erupted, first across the U.S., and later around the world. It sparked heightened discussion around the Black Lives Matter Movement.

The movement is also clearly close to the hearts of Kodjoe and Parker, like many celebrities who have voiced support for police reform and racial equality in the U.S.

Kodjoe and Parker, who went to a gala for their first date, have been married for over a decade and have been open about how they have managed to keep their marriage strong despite the passing of time.

They make a conscious effort to keep their relationship exciting. On their 15th wedding anniversary this year, the actor surprised his wife with a beachside celebration.

The couple are parents to a daughter and a son. Recently, fans were amused when their son, Nicolas adorably interrupted the couple during an intimate selfie.
