Jamie Foxx has two daughter with two different mothers. He has, however, stated that he will not name the mothers, and revealed his motto: "Whoever you date, don't let anybody know."
Singer-turned-actor Jamie Foxx had refused to name the mothers of his two daughters, as he wants to keep his personal life out of the news. The star has been private since the children were born. Corinne (18) and Annalise (4) have had their mother's identity kept since they were born. Despite this, Foxx has insisted that there is nothing stopping the women from coming forward, yet he is still glad that they haven't for complications sake. He explained this to Oprah Winfrey, saying "It's just so cool and calm and that's all you need... [I] need somebody... who's not thirsty for what I do."
The star of the upcoming 'Django Unchained' has also suggested that he will not pursue a romantic relationship with anyone that cannot keep themselves out of the press. Foxx explained his motto, "Whoever you date, don't let anybody know", by saying "I was dating a girl one time and I'm sick and there was a premiere and she got her dress and she was like, 'Well, the premiere's tonight... what are we doing? Because I got this dress.' And I said, 'Ok, well you go ahead and go to the premiere and don't come back,' because it ain't (sic) about that. To me, in order to make it in this business, it has to be someone who is willing to sacrifice a little bit more than what they would sacrifice in a normal relationship." He went on to discuss his reluctance to get married, saying "I always wanted to be married, 2.5 kids, wood panelling on the side of the station wagon, but... you get your heart broken one good time, especially for a man, it's catastrophic."
Foxx has also stated that he is convinced most marriages are doomed, saying "I always felt for my friends that (sic) got married. I would see them married for five years and then see them start to (crumble), and all of the sudden they're not married and they're enemies. Like they hate each other. And then I'm stuck in the middle as their friend and there's kids involved and it wrecks everything. I just don't want that... I know one couple that is married and they're happy, but everybody else, they are gnawing their arms off."
