Actor Djimon Honsou and Kimora Lee Simmons split up 6 years ago, after being married for half a decade. Since breaking up, Djimon has been very private about his dating life.

Well yesterday, the actor finally came out publicly with his girlfriend, and their 4 year old son together.

And Djimon's new girlfriend is gorgeous. Many of his fans are calling her a "big upgrade" from his ex Kimora.

Djimon stars in the new Aquaman movie as the Fisherman King. Its a pretty big role in the film, and will lead to roles in other DC universe movies. Djimon has already signed up to star in the Shazam movie.


Back in 2013, Kimora said:

"Relationships do change throughout the course of your life, and I always think in terms of relationships changing and evolving rather than starting and stopping," says the star, who was wed to Def Jam co-founder Russell Simmons from 1998 to 2009. (The amicable exes are parents to daughters Ming, 13, and Aoki, 10.)

Kimora continued, "Kids never go away from your life, and if you've been married, that person probably never goes away either. You never get rid of anyone and they never really get rid of you!"

The Fabulosity: What It Is and How to Get It author admitted it's not always easy staying on good terms with her exes, but added, "I try to do everything from the viewpoint of what's best for my kids. I have three kids and two great dads and it's not always easy, but you have to try to be a little selfless and we manage just fine." (Kimora and Hounsou, 48, are parents to son Kenzo, 3.)
