Celebrity marriages are always viewed as a ticking time bomb due to the recurrent cases of divorces after a few years of marriage. But that is not the case with Tim Reid and Maxwell Daphne’s union.
A GLIMPSE AT THE PACE SETTERS
Tim is one of America’s favorite talent, who made a name for himself in Hollywood through his over the edge acting and movie directing prowess.
His early breaks came in Prime Time American programs such as “WKRP in Cincinnati,” where he starred as Venus Fly Trap, and “Downtown.” Since then, he got featured in several other movies and reality series.

Born in Norfolk, Virginia on December 1994, the seventy-five-year-old has been married twice. His first marriage was to Rita Skyes who bore him his two amazing children and then to Daphne Maxwell.
Although his first marriage of fourteen years ended shortly in 1980, he made up for it by marrying star actress and former Homecoming Queen of Northwestern University, Daphne.
