Barbra Streisand and James Brolin’s Secret Revealed on 25th Anniversary

Barbra Streisand and husband James Brolin reveal saucy secret they have kept for decades years on their 25th anniversary

Barbra Streisand and James Brolin have been married for an incredible 25 years. They have always been open about their relationship, sharing their journey of finding love later in life. But now, they have let the world in on a secret they have kept for years. Let’s dive in and find out what it is!

Their love story began like many others, with a blind date. However, Barbra had a completely different image of James in her mind. She thought she would be meeting a man with a full head of hair and a beard, but to her surprise, James was bald. Instead of being offended, Barbra’s honesty shone through as she couldn’t help but comment on his hair. This frankness only endeared her more to James, and he knew she was the one.

While it took Barbra a few more dates to be sure of her feelings, they soon fell deeply in love and tied the knot in 1998. This wasn’t the first marriage for either of them. Barbra had previously been married to Elliot Gould, with whom she shares a son named Jason. James had also been married twice before. First to casting agent Jane Agee for 20 years, and then to Jane Smithers for almost 10 years. In addition to Jason, Barbra’s son, James has three children from his previous marriages – Josh, Jess, and Molly Brolin. They also have the joy of being grandparents to four grandchildren – Eden, Trevor, Westlyn, and Chapel.

James is absolutely smitten with his wife. He can’t imagine a life without her, and he once said, “Every night is a new adventure. Sleeping is a waste of time. I can’t wait to see her again in the morning.”

This summer, the couple celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary and decided to share a well-kept secret. In an interview with Gayle King of CBS Mornings, they revealed that before meeting Barbra, James had been celibate for three years. It was a surprising revelation that left King in disbelief. But it was a testament to James’ desire to avoid getting entangled in another relationship that might not work.

However, everything changed when a friend convinced him to meet Barbra. His perspective shifted, and he knew he had to marry her. On the other hand, Barbra needed a little convincing, and it was only after James asked her for the third time that she said yes.

Their love story is truly remarkable, and it shows that finding love later in life is possible. The longevity of their relationship is a testament to their deep connection and commitment to each other.
