Djimon Hounsou and his belle, Kimora Lee Simmons held a commitment ceremony in his native Benin, Africa over the summer reported.

โ€œThe couple is very happy and dedicated to each other one hundred percent,โ€ Simmonsโ€™ rep told Us.

The pair, who donned traditional garb, โ€œdid it to show how committed to each other they are in front of his family,โ€ the source says, emphasizing that it was not a wedding.

Simmonsโ€™ daughters with her ex, Russell (whom she finalized her divorce from in January 2009), Ming Lee, 8, and Aoki Lee, 6, were also present.

โ€œMing Lee and Aoki call Djimon โ€˜baba,โ€™ which means a father figure in certain cultures. They all live as one happy family together,โ€ says the source. โ€œRussell respects Djimon and they get along great. He is very happy for her.โ€

For now, the couple is โ€œnot engaged,โ€ the source tells Us.
