She met her ex-husband, Eddie Murphy at the age of 20 at the NAACP Image Awards show, 1988, got engaged on Christmas Eve of 1991 and the pair wed two years after. The couple divorced in 2006 after their 12 years of marriage.
The mother of five of Eddie Murphy’s children says, “Eddie and I are friends; he’s my babies’ daddy, so we speak to each other and have a great relationship and I think that’s important when you have children involved.”

After things ended with Eddie Murphy, Nichole was engaged to former NFL football player Michael Strahan. The couple broke off their 5-year long engagement in August 2014, owing to busy schedules. Allegedly, it was the distance that drove them apart.
