Denzel Washington married actress Pauletta Pearson on June 25, 1983 after meeting on the set of the TV film “Wilma.” Pearson and Washington have four children together, son John David, daughter Katia, and twins Olivia and Malcolm.
Denzel and Pauletta recently revealed the secrets behind their long-lasting marriage in an interview with Ebony magazine. “I live with this man. I see the down part. I see the sad part. I see every part,” Pauletta said. “He has and knows he has that stability in me as his wife. That gives him strength, regardless of if he misuses it. I can’t dwell on that. But I do know that gives him a great platform to go and fly.” Denzel added, “There's no magical mystery. We go through up and downs like any couple.” —XFINITY Entertainment Staff
