Josh James Brolin is an American actor who has achieved huge triumphs in the entertainment industry. The actor brings out the creativity in all the roles he has played. He starred in several movies, including True Grit, American Gangster, and The Inherent Vice. He’s been in Hollywood since the 80’s, although his career took off in the late 2000’s when he adopted villainous characters.
He was a key character in the blockbuster, Avengers, where he acted as Thanos, most notably in Avengers: Infinity War and Avengers: Endgame. There is no doubt that he lives a busy life that balances between being a family man and his lucrative career as an actor. Not long ago, he and his wife announced the birth of their second child on Instagram. This was his fourth child since he has two children from a previous marriage. This has caused many people to wonder how many times the actor has been married.
Before marrying his current wife, the actor had had two other marriages. His first marriage was to Deborah Adair, and it lasted from 1988 to 1994. She is famous for her role in Beverly Hills Cop II. During their marriage, they had two children, Trevor and Eden, and both followed in their parents’ footsteps to build careers in the entertainment industry. Trevor is a famous actor and producer while Eden is an actress who has been appearing in Yellowstone as Mia since 2018. After divorcing Adair, the actor married actress and producer Diana Lane. She is known for her acting in Outsiders, Inside Out and Tuscan Sun.
Their marriage lasted nine years, from 2004 to 2013, but their challenges led to their split. In 2018, the actor spoke about his former wife during an interview with Entertainment Tonight. He said he loved her and enjoyed being a father figure to their child, but the marriage was not viable. He became exhausted and began to feel resentful, leading to many challenges, and this made him feel that he did not have the mental capacity or maturity to understand his situation at the time.
The actor stated that he remains responsible for the mistakes in his marriage to Lane. In addition to being arrested for domestic violence-related crimes, he would later be arrested twice, one for public intoxication and another for an altercation. He said 2013 was his most difficult time, explaining: “Well, it was another turning point. It reminded me of a lot of things. My mother died when I was in my twenties. All the impact that had on me where I didn’t I was always such a mother’s boy. But I realized I was on a destructive path. I knew I had to change and grow up.”
His current marriage
Brolin is currently married to Kathryn Boyd Brolin. She happens to be his former assistant and a model. The couple started dating in 2013 and despite the huge age difference they got married in 2016. The mother of two has been a production assistant on several films such as The Watch, Everest, Oldboy and Sin City: A Dame to Kill for. Her Instagram account states that she is signed up to Atlanta Models and Talent. She also owns a clothing brand known as MIDHEAVEN Denim, which aims to “provide timeless staples for women who run out of the average size with an emphasis on fit, fabric quality and durability.” She is the mother of the actor’s two youngest children, Westlyn Reign Brolin, born in November 2018, and Chapel Grace, born in December 2020.
Kathryn announced her second pregnancy via an Instagram photo that showed her bulging belly. During the December 2020 break, they welcomed a healthy girl, Chapel Grace. She was born on Christmas Eve and Kathryn wrote, “Our little Christmas Eve angel.” Brolin later explained the meaning of the child’s name. He said, “Everywhere we’ve traveled, chapels have been the one place Kathryn and I have always found great comfort. Not being particularly religious, but a sense of God that overwhelms our lives, chapels have always been the shrines where we felt most connected and free to give thanks. Chapel Grace for us is a manifestation of that heavenly feeling that has always been felt when we wandered and knelt.”
