Jamie Foxx is a proud parent. The award-winning actor, singer, and producer (real name Eric Bishop) has never been married, but has two daughters: Corinne Foxx, 29, and Annalise Bishop, 13, with former partners. Corinne revealed on April 12 that her famous dad experienced a “medical complication” the day prior. She said that Jamie, 55, was “already on his way to recovery.”
Months before the health incident, Jamie did an interview with E! News’ Daily Pop in Oct. 2022, and said that his desire to not marry or lead that “cookie cutter” has allowed him to become closer with his kids. “A lot of those marriages ended up not doing well as the kids got older,” Jamie said, citing some of his friends’ failed marriages. “Unfortunately, we saw the kids get fractured from their families. Us, we actually came together more. So I don’t know what that is, I just know that it is different but it’s a whole lot of love. The pressure of me being married, I don’t think we’ve even had conversations about it. They just love their daddy, and I just keep moving.”
Jamie previously opened up about his parenting secrets during a Dec. 2021 appearance on the “Dad Confessions” bit from The Ellen Show. Even though his kids clearly love him, he did admit that they keep him grounded when joking about the mean things they say to him. He said that one of their oh-so-loving remarks is, “You’re not as cool as you think you are dad.” Below is everything to know about Jamie’s two daughters!
Born Feb. 15, 1994 in Los Angeles, California, Corinne Foxx (real name Corinne Marie Bishop) is Jamie’s firstborn and oldest child. The actor welcomed Corinne with former partner Connie Kline, an Air Force veteran. The two had a brief relationship after meeting in 1993.
Corinne has followed in her father’s footsteps with a career in Hollywood, appearing in TV shows and films like 47 Meters Down: Uncaged, Beat Shazam, and Safety. In Sept. 2020, Corinne won an Emmy for outstanding variety special for ABC’s Live in Front of a Studio Audience: All in the Family and Good Times. Jamie immediately took to Instagram to gloat about his daughter’s success. “I would like to introduce to you my daughter, Emmy award-winning Corinne Foxx,” he captioned a celebratory Instagram video, as seen below. “Congratulations on your Emmy award performance! In ‘Good Times For Live In Front Of A Studio Audience’!”
Most recently, she appeared in the Hulu series Dollface in 2022. Corrine also serves as a producer on her dad’s Netflix series Dad Stop Embarrassing Me!, which was inspired by her own relationship with her father. “My dad is cool, but he also embarrassed me a lot through my teenagehood,” Corinne told Entertainment Tonight in Dec. 2020. “So we basically wrote a show about it, and I got to cast a girl to play a younger version of myself, which is pretty cool.”
Although Corinne has been embarrassed by her father a time or two, she confirmed in an April 2021 interview with CBS News that she knows how deeply she is loved by him. “He thinks the world of us, and we can feel it. And that’s really powerful for a young girl to grow up and have such a strong father figure in her life,” Corinne explained. How sweet!
On top of acting and producing, Corinne also co-hosts the podcast Am I Doing This Right? and runs a lifestyle website called Foxxtales. She revealed she thinks it would be a “blessing” to host the Oscars with her dad in a Feb. 2022 interview with ET Canada. “We know each other’s timing. So I think we’re a good comedic duo,” she said.
Corinne made headlines in April 2022, as mentioned above, for announcing her father’s hospitalization to the world. She then revealed he was at home recovering from his mystery illness in a May 12, 2023 post.
Born on Oct. 3, 2008, Annalise is Jamie’s second and youngest daughter. He welcomed her with his ex-girlfriend, Kristin Grannis. Given both of their private natures, it’s unclear when the duo split, but they were first linked in 2017. As for Annalise, she’s multi-talented, just like her famous father and older sister. Jamie previously revealed that the 14-year-old plays piano, guitar, and football. In a virtual interview with Entertainment Tonight in Aug. 2020, Jamie opened up about the COVID-19 quarantine with his two daughters, revealing that he and Annalise connected through their shared love of music. “My 11-year-old now knows how to play the piano so well, she actually plays my songs while I sing to them,” he said. “She said, ‘I am going on tour with you.’ I am blessed, we are all blessed.”
And in a n Oct. 2021 interview with Good Morning America, Jamie gushed about Annalise’s football prowess. “Her last game before COVID, she was playing with the boys, she had 21 points, 17 rebounds, 5 blocks,” he raved. Basically, don’t be surprised if she has a career in the arts or sports someday.
The proud Girl Dad offered the ultimate piece of advice for all the other Girl Dads out there while chatting with E! News’ Daily Pop that same month. “If you start early, Girl Dad, being a new dad, being able to talk about anything under the sun at the age of eight, nine, 10, when they are 18, 19, 20, they’ll say, ‘I can go to my dad and talk about anything,'” the actor explained. “It will pay dividends for the rest of your life.”
