The legendary American Actress, Marlo Thomas went back memory lane; she posted a throwback picture of her and her father and paid a special tribute to him.


Thursdays are for throwbacks, and actress, Marlo Thomas wasn’t going to be left out of it this time. The 81-year-old posted a picture featuring her and her father, Danny Thomas from years back, and took the opportunity to shower some praises on him.


The late Danny Thomas was a successful comedian, singer, actor, producer, and philanthropist, who died of heart failure in 1991, aged 79.


The veteran actress took to her Facebook page to post the special throwback Thursday picture. It showed her and her late father laughing heartily. The actress captioned the post with the words:

“TBT to my darling dad who could always make me laugh. I was lucky to have a funny daddy in my life. #ThrowbackThursday."

The comments section was filled with many tributary remarks from Marlo’s friends who knew her father and were impacted by his personality and also laughed hard at his many rib-cracking jokes, especially from the show, “Make Room for Daddy.”



Marlo Thomas seems to be blessed with great men in her life. Her late father being one, the actress also has an exceptional partner in 83-year-old Phil Donahue, who she has been married to since 1980.

Phil is a talk-show host veteran, known for his popular self-themed show, the “Phil Donahue Show,” which was the first of its kind.

The pair is counting down 39 years as a couple, and many would wonder the secrets to their long-lasting union, with the recent trend of celebrity couple divorces.


Marlo revealed the secrets to her successful marriage when she was a guest on the TODAY show to talk about her role in a play by Joe DiPietro titled “Clever Little Lies.”

She explained that the secret of their successful marriage was in them learning to be supportive of each other without criticism.


The power couple made a rare appearance at the American Icon Awards, looking so cute together. They posed for pictures at the red carpet, Phil donned a black tuxedo, while his beautiful wife wore a shiny black gown.

Even at their age, the couple still dotes after each other and are a great example for young couples to follow.
