WHO IS DON CHEADLE’S WIFE, BRIDGID COULTER? 

Coulter was born on August 2, 1968, in California. A producer and actress, she is most well-known for her parts in the 1992 series “Martin” and the 2016 series “Westworld” — lastly, the 1997 “Rosewood” which was her first film. 

But, now, flexing her creative muscles in a different direction, she has moved over to designing, where Coulter now runs her design firm in Los Angeles. 

She and Don met on the set of Rosewood and eventually became a couple. But, they only married secretly during the pandemic. However, their friends were under the impression that they were already legally bound to one another.

WHO ARE AYANA TAI CHEADLE AND IMANI CHEADLE?

Ayana and Imani were born the daughters of Don and his wife. They are both adults in their mid-20s, but their father says that even though they are more independent, they are all still close.

Beyond the entertainment industry, and according to Don, these two are very much socially aware and engaged in activism. Speaking on “The Late Show With Stephen Colbert,” he said

“We were at the house the other day and. My daughters getting ready with a  bunch of friends, and I said, ‘You guys going to a club? Where are you going?” She said, “No, we’re getting ready to go to a Black Lives Matter rally.'”

He then went on to say that it is going o be the younger generation who are going to make a difference in the world.

DON CHEADLE’S SUPPORT OF TRANS KIDS 

Don’s children’s social awareness could have been inherited from himself, who participates in a lot of activism and has been a vocal supporter of the LGBTQ+ community.

In 2019 while hosting Saturday Night Live (SNL), he wore a shirt that read “Protect Trans Kids” while introducing guest Gary Clark Jr. to the stage.

There was a joyous uproar on the internet of many thanking him for using his celebrity power to put an important message out.
