Details Of Her Family Life

Alexis Knief’s family consist of herself, her husband and their three children. She officially tied the nuptial knot with her husband Olyphant in July 1991. The two lovebirds happened to meet each other at the University and they began their relationship from there.

Alexis and Olyphant have been together as husband and wife for over two decades and their love life has remained a source of encouragement to many younger couples. Although there were some rumours about their separation some of which Olyphant himself stirred up. The Honolulu, Hawaii-born actor was caught in the public wearing his wedding ring on the right hand instead of the left where everyone wears it. This behaviour to many was interpreted to mean that the couple are not happy together and therefore could be planning to separate. The divorce rumour dissipated for a while when it was discovered that the actor only prefers wearing his own ring on the right hand.

Another divorce rumour about the two happened in 2011 when Olyphant joked about leaving his wife should he had won the year’s Emmy Awards which he was nominated for following his role as Raylan in the film Justified. “Kyle Chandler won the Emmy award, it was lovely, I was very happy for him. My opening line — this was my wife’s idea actually — I was going to look at [the trophy] and then look out at my wife of twenty years and say, ‘Well, honey, this is it. I’m finally leaving you,Olyphant said jokingly to TV host Conan O’Brien.
