David E. Kelley's career paints a picture of ongoing success, but through the eyes of his longtime wife, Michelle Pfeiffer, he is also revealed to be a "cute" and devoted husband and father.
Michelle Pfeiffer and David E. Kelley both made names for themselves in the entertainment industry; she as an A-list actress, and he a television writer and producer that worked on several popular law drama series.
Kelley worked on shows including "The Practice," and "L.A. Law," while Pfeiffer landed roles in blockbusters such as "Scarface," "Grease 2," and "Catwoman." They also celebrated their 27th-anniversary last month.
The second marriage for Pfeiffer, she divorced Peter Horton in 1988, five years before she married Kelley. Last month, the 62-year-old actress paid tribute to their 27 years of marriage with a sweet update.
Alongside a set of throwback pictures, Pfeiffer called Kelley her "one and only" since the day they tied the knot. By then, they had already grown to a family of three.
The couple had only been dating for around two months when Pfeiffer's adoption of her daughter Claudia went through. The situation showed a side to Kelley she definitely approved of, as Pfeiffer previously said:
"I really got to see him in a situation that certainly would separate the boys from the men. Obviously, he really rose to the occasion."
Pfeiffer and her Waterville, Maine-born husband became parents to their second child and son, John, a year after welcoming Claudia, and the actress put a pause on her career to raise the pair.
HIS START IN ENTERTAINMENT
Kelley landed in his current career as a writer and producer rather haphazardly. Following his graduation from Princeton in 1979, Kelley earned his J.D. at Boston University Law School four years later.
A job practicing real estate and minor criminal law cases followed, but Kelley soon tired of the type of work, and he decided to write a screenplay. After obtaining an agent in 1986, the script landed in front of Steven Bochco.
The well-known television producer just happened to be looking for legal-minded writers at the time, and Kelley's script impressed him. Soon after, Kelley started as the story editor on the then-new drama series "L.A. Law."
MARITAL BLISS AND BEAUTY
“I’ve never met a person who has more integrity than my husband. There’s his humor and intelligence, too, and he’s really cute — all those things.”
Michelle Pfeiffer also looks good in any hair color. Most recently, the 62-year-old took to social media and shared her hair transformation with followers. Although she kept the length, they turned from blond to red.
In preparation for her upcoming role as Frances Price, Pfeiffer's new look just emphasized her natural beauty, and show her career still going strong after she began in the industry in 1979.
