Alfonso Ribeiro's Wife Angela Celebrates Interracial Marriage Legalization in a Touching Post
Alfonso Ribeiro's proud wife Angela celebrates the day interracial marriage was legalized in a touching post that brushed on her own marriage with the actor.
Angela Unkrich-Ribeiro is one happy wife, and she's shown that time and time again through their family's sweet moments which they share on Instagram. Now, she celebrates the day that made this happen, particularly the day interracial marriage was legalized.
"On this day in 1967, the Supreme Court struck down state bans against interracial marriage. That means 14 YEARS before I was born, it would have been illegal for me to be married to my bestfriend."
CELEBRATING INTERRACIAL MARRIAGE
Ribeiro went on to express her gratitude to Richard and Mildred Loving, the couple that fought for their rights to be heard back in the 60s. According to Angela, the pair fought an "oppressive system" so that everyone else could be free to choose whom they love and wanted to marry.
"The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" actor married Angela Unkrich in 2012. At the time, Ribeiro was already a dad to his daughter Sienna whom he shared with first wife Robin Stapler.
THEIR INTERRACIAL FAMILY
The pair got married at the Lakeside Golf Club in Burbank, California, and since then, have been enjoying married life with their kids. Together, they share sons Alfonso Lincoln Jr., Anders Reyn, and youngest daughter Ava Sue.

Talking about monster trucks with my 4-year old while nursing my 9-month old while cutting a picture with one hand while working on my vision board...with age comes the great ability to multitask. Couldn’t have asked for a better birthday evening...vision boards, a family dance party, and a lot of amazing cake. Simply perfect.❤️🎂 #my❤️isfull
The family has always been a fan of adventures, and their social media updates make it clear that they've missed going on their family trips.
