James Brolin and Barbra Streisand are celebrating no less than two decades of marriage, and the singer made sure to pay tribute to the man on the very special day. Barbra took to her social media platforms to write a sweet message in which she even makes reference to the blind date that brought them together 22 years ago.
In fact, the fateful day is something the 76-year-old has talked about before during an interview for W magazine back in 2016.
‘My husband and I were set up on a blind date. I met him for dinner and expected a bearded mountain-man type, and he had cut off all his hair and was clean-shaven. I asked him, ‘Who screwed up your hair?’ He later told me that was when he fell in love with me. My fella likes to hear the truth, which is unusual,’ Streisand told the publication at the time.
As for her message on their anniversary today, Barbra kept it simple, but it was touching nevertheless.
‘Has it really been 22 years since our blind date? Married for 20 years. Happy anniversary honey. Bee. X,’ she tweeted.
Earlier this year, the man opened up about their longtime relationship in an exclusive interview with ET and also revealed the secret to a happy and lasting marriage like theirs.
‘I do believe in counseling if anybody ever has a problem in their marriage. Bring in a referee, talk it over, and I swear to you, it will dispel by the end of the session, each time! Sometimes in a tough marriage, it’s tough to talk, but if you do, it works!’ he told ET.
‘When she’s busy, she’s really focused, and part of our good relationship is that I understand that. And if I am to come to her with something important and she says, ‘I do not have time right now,’ she doesn’t have time, period. That’s the way the mind works. You gotta focus.’
