The heartthrob is usually very private about his personal life, but he always makes an exception when it comes to this special day when he shares photos of his beautiful wife and mom of his kids with the world.


Michael Ealy shared a beautiful photo of himself with his gorgeous wife to Instagram, former actress Khatira Rafiqzada to celebrate Mother's Day and how wonderful she is to their children, as any proud husband would do. 

Ealy, known for his roles in movies like Think Like A ManThe Perfect Guy, and series like Being Mary Jane and Almost Human is as talented on screen as reserved about his private life.

Over a span of six years, he has only uploaded a handful of photos of his wife on his Instagram account, and Rafiqzada is even more private since she doesn’t even have social media accounts. 


Back in a 2016 interview, Ealy told Wendy Williams that he doesn't feel the need to share his private life with the public on social media, and that this is something that dates back to his high school days. 

"People think, ‘Oh, you’re in Hollywood,’ I’m like, ‘No, no.’ If you knew me in high school, you knew. I learned then, if you want something to work, if it means that much to you, keep it to yourself," he said. 

The pair married in 2012 and have two children, a two-year-old daughter, and a three-year-old son, and even though Rafiqzada was once an actress, she has now dedicated her life to raising their children.


So, in a show of gratitude, Ealy decided to pay homage to his wife with a beautiful post on his Instagram for Mother’s Day. 


"Every year I am supposed to post how much we love you. Every year you make it easier and less obligatory. We love you more and more for all you do. God is. Love u mommy The R, Hq, & Me #happymamaday #firenze," he wrote.

Rafiqzada was born in the United States but is of Afghanistani descent. She made her debut on screen back in 2009, when she was part of the cast of the short film Layla where she portrayed the role of Zola.

Later, she starred in the horror film Chain Letter where she gave life to a Counselor named Ms. Garrett. 


She and Ealy started dating in 2008, and after four years together, he popped the question and they got married in 2012.

The couple didn’t announce the news right away, and when Ealy revealed he was off the market months later, fans were shocked and devastated at the news.

Ealy and Rafiqzada have a beautiful family and marriage, and perhaps their secret to keeping it that way resides, precisely, in being so reserved about their personal lives.
