This is the year that “Denzel Washington and his wife Pauletta Washington will have been married for 40 years”.
A lot of famous people got divorced in 2022, which was a big story at the time. Denzel Washington and his wife Pauletta Washington are one of the few married couples who have been able to stay together for a long time. Denzel Washington has been married to Pauletta Washington for almost 40 years. After meeting in college, they have been together for more than 45 years.
Denzel asked Pauletta to marry him three times, even though she said no the first two times. One year after they got married, on July 28, 1984, John David Washington was born, making them parents for the first time. John is a famous actor who has been in movies like “BlacKkKlansman” and “Malcolm & Marie.” Katia Washington, who also became an actress, was born two years later, in 1986. She was the couple’s second child and also became an actor.
In 1991, the couple had twins, both of whom went on to have jobs in the entertainment business. The family had Malcolm and Olivia Washington.
During his time on The Ellen Show, he was asked what the actor did to keep his marriage happy and productive over a long amount of time. Denzel’s answer was straight to the point: “I do what I’m told.” This sentence shows how Denzel feels about his wife and about their marriage. In 2017, the star said that the couple’s happy marriage was because he “married up.” Denzel says that Pauletta’s background was very different from his own. Denzel knew that he had to be a part of her family to feel the kind of love and connection he had only read about.
Denzel and Pauletta will be celebrating their 40th wedding anniversary this year.
