Why Ludacris Waited So Long To Marry Eudoxie…
Over the holidays, Ludacris proposed to and married his longtime girlfriend Eudoxie within a very brief time span. There was much speculation regarding the ceremony and why it was so rushed. Some believed that he sprinted to the altar so that the courts would rule in his favor regarding the custody battle for his daughter, Cai. However, the rapper insists that his swift move was about Eudoxie and their relationship.
“In my opinion, it’s so many people out here — and to each his own — when you do this big ceremony and you take all this time, and a lot of times these marriages aren’t even lasting. I just wanted to make it special, you know. I spoke to her about it and we just decided to do it,” the actor told Angie Martinez.
He didn’t really comment on why he chose to be so open about their engagement and wedding when he was so private about everything else, but he did explain—or at least attempt to– why he waited so long to marry Eudoxie.
“I’m almost in the mindset, that you go 5 and 10 years and then go ‘head and have a ceremony and celebrate and invite everybody. Then you’ve accomplished something and that’s what it’s all about. You know me, I’m unorthodox. I hate doing the norm.”
Although the engagement was supposedly a surprise, Luda says he wasn’t too concerned about the risk he took by planning to propose and get married so quickly.
“We talked about it. Like I said, this is something that we both understood. When you think about it, it was the end of the year. I was like, ‘We’re going to go into 2015 and we’re going to make this thing happen. It’s gon’ be all the way live.”
While he has been married for over a month, the rapper insists that not much has changed.
“The good thing is things are still the same. Everybody would always have conversations with me and say, ‘Man, something changes within that one day. The next day it totally changes.’ Everything is still the same. It’s better in the sense that I’m glad that everything is official, but in terms of the attitudes and things of that nature, everything is the same. It’s a good thing…so far.”
One thing the actor did not comment on is whether or not his wife is expecting. Earlier this week, rumors began circulating that she is six months pregnant. I suppose we’ll have to keep an ear out to find out what the word is with that.
