Terry was born in Flint, Michigan on July 30, 1968, and he rose to prominence following his comedy stints in several films and television series which include Everybody Hates Chris, Are We There yet, Brooklyn Nine-Nine, and The Expendables series.

The two met when Rebecca was playing piano in the church Terry attended. At when he first spoke to her, he was not as much of a smooth talker as he is today. After speaking to Rebecca, she almost friend-zoned him because she felt he was too good for her.

On his part, Crew decided he was not going to mess it all up and so he continued taking things slowly until he won her over. Both of them attended the West Michigan University where Rebecca King-Crews was pursuing theatre and music while Terry Crews was all about football.

Although the couple has not provided a timeline of their relationship, it is known that by 1989 when Terry was only 20, the couple decided to get married. More than three decades later, the two are not only together, but their relationship is also strong and blessed with five kids.

Unlike what has become the norm in the entertainment world, Rebecca King-Crews and Terry Crews have managed to hold their marriage together for more than three decades. That said, it was not all rosy as according to Terry, the couple had made many mistakes in the past and had lost homes, children, and have even broken up before finding their paths back to each other.

The secret of their lasting marriage according to him is admitting one’s fault when one is wrong. Also, they have continued to work on their relationship as the years keep passing by. They had a second honeymoon in 2015 in order to give more life to their love life and rekindle their romance. In the same year, they took part in a 90-day “sex fast,” which they said gave another life to their union together.

The beautiful couple has always stood together even in difficult moments. In 2014 when Terry came public with issues of his porn addiction and in 2016 when he came public about the sexual assault he endured, one person that remained there for him was his wife.

Their Amazing Kids
