Jamie Foxx Balances Being a Friend and Dad to His Kids: “[He’s] Cool, but He Also Embarrassed Me”
It’s clear from his TV interviews, red carpet events, and social media posts that Jamie Foxx‘s daughters make him one proud dad! The 55-year-old actor, comedian, and singer is the father of two daughters, Corinne Foxx and Annalise Bishop. Both of his girls are from different, prior relationships. Corinne and Annalise share an almost 15-year age-gap, but it’s obvious that hasn’t stopped them from having a close bond and spending time together as a family of three, including on the red carpet at his big premieres, like for “Spider-Man: No Way Home” (pictured above).
In April 2023, Jamie experienced an undisclosed medical complication that saw him hospitalized. Corrine was first to inform the public about Jamie’s condition, and that he was surrounded by love, in an Instagram Story, writing, “We wanted to share that, my father, Jamie Foxx, experienced a medical complication yesterday. Luckily, due to quick action and great care, he is already on his way to recovery. We know how beloved he is and appreciate your prayers. The family asks for your privacy at this time.”
Weeks later, amid speculation Jamie was still in the hospital, Corrine clarified on May 12 that Jamie had been home by his family’s side for weeks, writing on her Instagram Story, “Dad has been out of the hospital for weeks, recuperating. In fact, he was playing pickle ball yesterday! Thanks for everyone’s prayers and support!”
It’s clear Corrine has so much love for her father, and the feeling is mutual. During an appearance on Bubble’s “Dad Confessions” in 2021, Foxx spoke about parenting, explaining, “You gotta do push and pull. You gotta do friend sometimes, and then sometimes you gotta be the dad.” He also said that his kids know that “they can come tell me anything.” Still, the “Back in Action” actor admitted he isn’t a perfect father, saying that he wishes he’d realized sooner that “time is priceless” with his children.
