American businesswoman and television producer Tracey Elaine Edmonds (née McQuarn) was born on February 18, 1967. She was a former ‘Extra’ host and currently serves as CEO of Edmonds Entertainment Group Inc. and She is also a member of the Producers Guild of America's national board of directors.


Edmonds successfully operated a real estate and mortgage company after graduating. She later founded Edmonds Entertainment Group, Inc. in 1993, a multimillion-dollar company that is actively involved in all facets of the entertainment industry. The 1997 movie Soul Food was made by Edmonds Entertainment and won five NAACP Image Awards.

Tracey met Babyface when she attended an audition for the music video for Babyface's song ‘Whip Appeal’ in 1990. Brandon and Dylan, their two children, were born on September 5, 1992, the day after their wedding. However, their marriage did not last long as Tracey submitted a divorce petition to the Los Angeles County Superior Court on January 7, 2005, citing irreconcilable differences.


Who is Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds' ex-wife, Nicole Pantenburg?

Nicole Pantenburg, 48, and Kenneth 'Babyface' Edmonds' have been together for over a decade, following his divorce from ex-wife Tracey Edmonds. Pantenburg, a dancer and actress originally from San Dimas, California, is quite active in the TV industry. Nicole has played roles in 'That 70's Show', 'Eve', 'For Your Love', and 'Longshot', according to her IMDb biography.

Nicole and Babyface began dating in 2007. The two connected at the office since Pantenburg was the singer's backup dancer. Peyton Edmonds, the couple's daughter, and their only child together, was born in 2008. The two later got married in 2014, when Nicole was 41 and Babyface was 55.


Unfortunately, the couple filed for divorce after seven years of marriage. “After much thought and with great sadness, we have decided to end our marriage. We continue to care and have respect for one another and share eternal love for our daughter and her well-being.  We ask for personal privacy for ourselves and our daughter as we navigate these new steps as a family,” the couple told TMZ, emphasizing that they are prioritizing their daughter, Peyton.
