Actor and director Blair Underwood, best known as Jonathan Rollins in “L.A. Law,” has been married since 1994, and he has a beautiful family.
On a trip they took to Machu Picchu, Peru, in 2018, the actor uploaded a couple of photos of the outing showing most of the members of his family. One thing was clear; his children look exactly like him.
Blair married Desiree DaCosta on September 17, 1994, and they have been together ever since, which means that they are the living proof that long-lasting relationships in Hollywood are possible.

Apart from being a very talented actor who has been nominated to two Golden Globe Awards, three NAACP Image Awards, and one Grammy, Blair is a family man who put the Underwoods in the top of his priority list.
Back in 2013, he took the role of Robert Ironside in the remake of the TV show “Ironside.” Since the project was taking place in New York and Blair and his family lived in Los Angeles, he asked NBC, the media in charge, to move the shooting to Los Angeles so that Blair could be closer to his family, and they agreed.
Even though his role in “L.A. Law” is the most memorable ones, he has also worked in other important TV shows, including “High Incident,” “City of Angels,” “Dirty Sexy Money,” “The Event,” and more recently, “Quantico.”
Apart from his remarkable work in the entertainment industry, Blair has taken part in several charities, including the Muscular Dystrophy Association (MDA) and the AIDS Healthcare Foundation.
His activities with the MDA earned him the 1993 Humanitarian Award, and he served as the spokesperson for YouthAIDS in 2003 next to Asley Judd. Apart from that, he is a Trustee for the Robey Theatre Company in L.A., a non-profit group founded by Danny Glover that focuses on plays about the Black experience.
At the moment, the actor is focused on his family and a new project titled “Juanita,” a film which release date has not been revealed. It will be based on the book “Dancing on the Edge of the Roof,” written by Sheila Williams.
