Chris Rock’s girlfriend actress Megalyn Echikunwoke doesn’t seem that interested in marriage. When People magazine caught up with her on the Emmy red carpet and asked about her rumored engagement to the legendary comedian, she said.
“What can I say? I have a boyfriend. He’s a comedian. He’s funny. He’s really wonderful. He’s a very dreamy guy, and I’m a lucky girl. I’m actually not a huge believer in marriage. If he made a really good case for it, I guess. I guess there’s this misconception about once you’re engaged how could you possibly want anything more than marriage and kids.
It’s kind of like lock down a rich guy. I’m here to say that there’s more to life than that, and this common lame notion that that’s all a girl could possibly want in life is completely bulls–t. So, I mean, I have a boyfriend who I love and that’s all I need.”
Prior to the couple’s relationship, Chris was married to ex-wife Malaak Compton-Rock from November 23, 1996 until their divorced was finalized on August 22 of this year.
Chris had previously filed to divorce his wife in December 2014.
The couple share two daughters together; Zahra, 12, and Lola Rock, 14.
