Exclusive: Djimon Hounsou Talks Co-Parenting With Kimora Lee Simmons



Oscar nominated actor, Djimon Hounsou has a string of roles slated for release this year, including Guardians of the Galaxy, Seventh Son and How To Train Your Dragon 2. 

Dreamworks forthcoming comedy-fantasy, How To Train Your Dragon 2 is Hounsou’s first animated film which he says he did for his 5-year-old, Kenzo; whom he proudly co-parents with his ex, Kimora Lee Simmons. HipHollywood caught up with the 50-year-old to talk about co-parenting and any advice he may have for parents going through the same thing.

“You come to realize that there is nothing wrong with the idea of co-parenting. It’s just much more love that you pour into your kid I think and just acknowledge that and understand that,” Hounsou told us exclusively.

Hounsou and Simmons started dating in 2007 … In 2009, the model gave birth to she and Djimon’s first child together, Kenzo Lee. The couple never legally married in the United States, but took part in a traditional commitment ceremony in Hounsou’s native country, Benin. The couple eventually split and announced their separation in November 2012.

How To Train Your Dragon 2 hits theaters on June 13.
