"We got married on our 10-year anniversary. She's quiet, I'm loud. Opposites attract."

Anthony Anderson and Alvina Anderson got married in September 1999. They later welcomed two children, a son named Nathan and a daughter named Kyra.

Alvina applied for divorce in 2015 due to irreconcilable differences, and the court documents revealed that they separated the previous year. Alvina asked for joint custody and primary physical custody of her children. In 2017, the pair reconciled, and the divorce appeal was dismissed.
