Not every relationship is easy or works as expected to be. No example would be better than this. Yes, we are talking about America’s Got Talent: The Champions host Terry Crews and his wife Rebecca King-Crews. They are now married for 29 years. The duo has faced challenging times since then. But despite the odds and facing all the hardship, they worked through it all.
It wasn’t loved at first sight for them
During the 80s, Rebecca was voted Miss Gary, Indiana and then she went to Western Michigan University to pursue her career ahead. On the other hand, Terry was busy playing football at the same school. It is believed that the duo has met during this time. As per Rebecca, she didn’t fell in love at first sight with him. Rebecca said, “He almost got stuck in the friend zone. He was a little too nice.”
@fbf 29 years ago in Kalamazoo Michigan I said “I do” to the sweetest, goofiest, artist/football player to ever walk into my church! Check out my Whitney Houston inspired head peace, and the short hair! I’ve had short hair since I was 13, never felt the need 2 grow it-he likes! pic.twitter.com/uACs7Cfven

After some time they got together and in 1990 they got married. They have also welcomed their daughter in the same year. Now they have five children as of now.
Though Terry has got huge success in the Hollywood industry, still he faced a lot in his relationship
No doubt, the duo always keeps smiling at the red carpet whenever you see them, but Terry isn’t happy with his relationship. After going away from football, he fell into a deep depression which landed him to addiction and pornography which has cost him his marriage. After two years on Facebook, he revealed how he got addicted to all this and never told his wife.

Always a pleasure working with my hubs @terrycrews. can’t tell you now but will let you know when it airs! He is my mentor, my friend, my all-around go to guy and I wouldn’t be standing here today without his strength and perseverance as he fought for our love ❤️ HE’S A WINNER!!!
“My wife was literally like, ‘I don’t know you anymore, I’m out of here,’” he said. “That changed me. I had to change because I realized this thing is a major, major problem.”
He also took many therapies for his addiction and as a result of his desire to change, Rebecca came back to him. On the show, Rebecca said it took her about 3 years to trust him again. “When someone knows you from good to the most rotten, dirtiest part of you, and loves you anyway, that’s the rarity, that’s where you want to be,” Terry remarked on the program in March 2018.
They are now a happy couple again
After facing so many struggles, the duo is now happy and together. No matter where their lives go next, Rebecca and Terry seem to have each other’s backs as evidenced by their heartfelt Instagram about one another.
