Before dating Sanders, Edmonds was married to Kenny "Babyface" Edmonds for 13 years before their divorce in 2005. The former couple shares two children. She was later engaged to actor Eddie Murphy, though they called it off. 

Babyface revealed during an interview with Oprah that he has a lot of respect for Sanders because the former footballer called him and asked for a man-to-man talk

Babyface said Sanders told him that he did not want to meet the children he shares with Edmonds until he had lunch with him. The singer further said that he admired Sanders because of that gesture.
