On their anniversary, both took turns to celebrate each other on Instagram. Magic posted a series of pictures they'd taken through their relationship with a caption detailing his love for his wife. Cookie similarly returned the love. She wrote:

"I love being married to you, you always come up with the best adventures & surprises."

Magic and Cookie have had their various challenges in the past. Magic was diagnosed with HIV early in his career and the news had shaped their family.

Cookie revealed that Magic locked himself in a room to call his ex-lovers because he was having unprotected sex with them. However, Magic and Cookie got past that ugly situation to build a healthy relationship.
