    The Queen of Fab and her Oscar-nominated actor-model hubby began dating in March 2007 and tied the knot in the summer of 2008. They have a 3-year-old son, Kenzo Lee Hounsou. Simmons also has two daughters--Ming Lee, 12, and Aoki Lee, 10--from her marriage to rap/media tycoon Russell Simmons.

    Back in June, the duo shot down split rumors as well.
