WHEN THE STARS ALIGNED
Fox and Kelly, whose birth name is Richard Colson Baker, met on the set of "Midnight in the Switchgrass." Although it wasn't love at first sight, Fox knew that something would happen as soon as she found that her co-star was Kelly. During an episode on "Give Them Lala… With Randall," as told by ET, she said:
"I could feel that some wild [expletive] was going to happen to me from that meeting, but I wasn't yet sure what. I just felt it like, deep in my soul – that something was going to come from that."
According to Fox, Kelly is what she would call her twin flame. "I knew right away," she said. "Instead of a soul mate, a twin flame is actually where a soul has ascended into a high enough level that it can be split into two different bodies at the same time. So we're actually two halves of the same soul."
Meanwhile, Kelly would wait outside of his trailer to make eye contact with the "Jennifer's Body" actress, unsure of their connection. Around the second day of taping, Fox invited her co-star to have lunch in her trailer, as well as look into his astrological sign.
Fox already knew that he had a Pisces moon just from the "Candy" hitmaker's energy without even asking. The pair's relationship deepened and quickly turned into a serious romantic relationship. Although fast-paced, insiders claimed that they were happy.
Kelly also shared great things about his relationship, calling their love real. "She is unlike any person I have ever met in my life," he said of Fox, as told by People. "I don't think people get the opportunity to believe in real, great love, and that's what we have together."
After more than a year of dating, Kelly proposed to his girlfriend under the same banyan tree they "asked for magic" in 2020. In Fox's Instagram post, she revealed that they faced hell and high water together, which only strengthened their relationship and deepened their love.
Fox's post included a video clip of Kelly kneeling on the ground and proposing with a custom-made ring. The "Transformers" star knelt shortly after and gave her fiance a sweet kiss. Kelly posted his announcement, sharing a video of Fox's hand with the emerald and diamond engagement ring.
Although he often uses his social media account as an avenue for his music, Kelly sometimes shows his soft side with photos of himself and Casie.
He also shared that he and Stephen Webster designed the ring that combines Fox's birthstone, the emerald, and his birthstone, the diamond. Both were "set on two magnetic bonds of thorns that draw together as two halves of the same soul forming the obscure heart that is our love," he wrote.
Fox's ex-husband previously showed approval of Kelly and cleared that no relationship formed while he and the actress were still married. During an episode of his podcast, Green said that he trusted Fox's judgment as she has proven to have made good decisions in the past.
Fox and Green had three sons, Bodhi, Noah, and Journey, who they continue to raise well during their marriage. Meanwhile, Kelly is also a father to Casie, who he claims changed his life. In a 2017 Rolling Stone interview, the rapper said, "it didn't change me until she learned to Google."
He has since become a protective father, caring about what his daughter can view on the internet. He has his parenting styles and does not let the opinions of others affect him, as long as he knows he is taking care of Casie well.
Although he often uses his social media account as an avenue for his music, Kelly sometimes shows his soft side with photos of himself and Casie. Some of these adorable moments include twinning with the little girl, bonding outdoors, going out of town.
In one of his posts for Father's Day, he wrote: "How is she mine [?]" alongside a series of photos bonding with Casie through various activities. In another share, he referred to his daughter as his "princess" and "best friend."
Despite their split, Kelly and Cannon seem to be raising their daughter well and are on good terms. Their time together appeared to have impacted his life as well. He is said to have written "Her Song" for his ex. The song's music video revealed a snippet of Cannon's voicemail if fan speculations are correct.
His lyrics speak of him losing the love of his life while he was chasing his dream. He also revealed in the song his attempt to win back the woman, to no avail. In 2013, the "Bad Things" rapper paid tribute to Cannon for Mother's Day," describing her as the most incredible mom he has seen.
Hopefully, their relationship stays the same as Kelly begins a blended family with Fox and her children following their wedding.
