Debbie Allen & Husband Norm Nixon Show What Love Is with Their 35-Year Marriage

Marriage goals! Debbie Allen and Norm Nixon have been married for 34 years, and have proven what love is. Their secret to staying together is quite simple and worthy of emulation.

Debbie Allen is popularly known for her role in “Fame,” and she has been to her husband, Norm Nixon, for 34 years. In an industry where divorces happen as quickly as marriages, they’ve learned to define love in their way.

To those who know the couple, and follow them on their social media accounts, it is clear that Allen and Nixon love each other, and value their relationship. They proved this when they went all out by having an all-white themed party for their 32nd anniversary a few years back. 

The celebrity couple invited their friends and families to a yacht in Marina del Rey, and the dance queen and former NBA player danced in celebration of their love. Allen captioned one of the videos shared at the time,

“32 years of loving,” and attached heart-shaped emojis.

The “Grey’s Anatomy” star and the former Los Angeles Clippers player got married in 1980, after her divorce from first husband, Winnfred Wilford. Since their wedding, they’ve been inseparable, and share two children, Vivian Nicole, and Norman Ellard Nixon Jr.

In a past interview, Allen revealed the secret to their relationship. According to her, they’ve been able to make their relationship work by putting their family above everything else in their lives.

She added that despite her achievements, Nixon and her children are what she considers her most significant assets, and they bring her joy more than anything else.

The actress and Nixon’s family is equally well blended; the “SWAT” star accepts and treats her husband’s eldest son, DeVaughn Nixon, as one of her children, and they share a close bond.

Allen’s successful union is a testament to her strong character, and self-discipline, a trait that has helped her in her career. The actress has been active in Hollywood for over four decades and has two Emmy’s and a Golden Globe award to her credit.

The Texas native is also a television producer, director, and choreographer. She owns the dance company, Debbie Allen’s Dance Academy, and co-owns the production company, D.A.D with her sister, Philycia.

At 69, Allen is full of life and dreams for the future. Asides from the new professional milestones she hopes to achieve, the mum-of-two's focus is on enjoying her life with Nixon and their children by her side.
