Let’s get to know more about her!
Married Life with Wesley Snipes
Nakyung Park first met her husband, Wesley Snipes, back in the late 1990s and soon started dating. After three years of relationship, they got married on March 17, 2003.
The pair tied the knot in a very private ceremony at the courthouse in Hackensack, N.J., where only one of their friends attended their wedding as per a Bergen County court document obtained by The ENQUIRER.
The ceremony was strictly by-the-book. They were trying to be discreet. They were wearing everyday clothes, there was no photographer, no video, no crowds of friends. No one even recognized him. The only witness with them was an acquaintance of Snipes, a local lawyer named John Carbone, and they had to use a court employee as their second witness.A Bergen County employee revealed about their marriage.
The one and only witness to their marriage revealed that Nakyung “didn’t even get a chance to walk down the aisle.”
It was a basic, ‘take it or leave it’ thing. He took her down to the courthouse and he married her — the poor woman didn’t even get a chance to walk down the aisle. And he didn’t promise her a honeymoon, either.
The pair have been together for more than two decades and are still married.
Mother of Four
With her husband, Nakyung Park has four kids: one daughter and three sons. They are Iset Jua-T, Alaafia Jehu-T, Alimayu Moa-T, and Akhenaten Kihwa-T Snipes.
Nakyung and Wesley welcomed their first child, a son, Akhenaten Kihwa-T Snipes in 2000. The following year, the pair welcomed their second child, a daughter, Iset Jua-T Snipes on July 31, 2001.
On May 26, 2004, they welcomed their third child, a son, Alaafia Jehu-T Snipes. They gave birth to their fourth child, a son, Alimayu Moa-T Snipes on March 26, 2007.
Step-Mother of Jelani Asar Snipes
Nakyung is also a stepmother to Wesley Snipes’ first son, Jelani Asar Snipes. Wesley welcomed his first child in 1989 with his first wife, April Dubois. They were married from 1985 to 1990.
Her stepson appeared in the movie, Mo’ Better Blues when he was one year old.
Lost Her Father in 2020
