A PROUD MOM
Bernadette's post was more recent, with the older Camille standing with her brother, mom, and father, all looking comfortable and smiling into the lens. The proud mother's caption was quite long and heart-warming.
He has been married to his wife Bernadette for over two decades.
In the caption, Bernadette wrote about how strong her daughter is and how proud they all are of her. She also complimented her beautiful daughter on having a good heart and, of course, wished her a very happy birthday.
Many do not know Sugar Ray as a family man but rather as an ex-superstar boxer. Speaking about the long-term effects of boxing, the former professional boxer had a lot to say, such as:
"Boxing for me kept me off the streets, kept me away from drugs for as long as it could. My life has been blessed because of boxing."
Continuing, Sugar Ray expressed that boxing, what he termed as a sport for the disenfranchised, assisted him in buying his parents' home. Going on, he said that it helped him to give back to a lot of individuals.
TWO DECADES OF LOVE
Not only was Sugar Ray successful in boxing, but he was also successful in marriage. In fact, he has been married to his wife Bernadette for over two decades - 27 years to be exact.
Last year, the two celebrated their 27th anniversary and didn't hesitate to flaunt the special day online. Sugar Ray posted a video of them dancing and wrote in the caption that he is blessed to have his wife in his life.
The lovebirds' wedding was an outrageous and gorgeous affair. The two got hitched in California in their $8 million estate covered in roses and florals, including some flowers brought in from overseas.
Sugar Ray's marriage to Bernadette is not the first, having divorced ex-wife Juanita Wilkinson via a heated dispute. However, it appears that both of them ended up happy, Wilkinson eventually marrying again to another athlete, Otis Nixon.
