Why Chris Rock loves to work for his kids
Chris Rock assumed three titles on his new film I Think I Love My Wife – co-writer, director and star. It was all work he was glad to do though – for his daughters, Lola Simone Rock, 4, and Zahra Savannah Rock, 2. The comedian tells Life magazine that he loves working for his family after seeing his late father, Julius, labor away at work and come home dead tired to support Chris and his six siblings.
Fatherhood, Chris says, has also made him more patient and less reclusive. Before he had children, he felt isolated in show business as he could only relate to people in similar situations, but his daughters have since opened him up to a new world.
The 42-year-old only wishes for his girls’ happiness as well. When asked if he’d be happy if they married a guy like himself, Chris responded:
Chris and his wife, Malaak Compton-Rock, have been married for 10 years.
