The "Everybody Hates Chris" star confessed to being unfaithful and battling porn addiction to Rebecca, who had been suspicious of her husband for a while. In the memoir, they refer to the day as the "D-day."

For the lovebirds, it was the starting point for their healing. Although Rebecca threatened to leave the marriage, Terry promised to become a better man and seek help, and the rest is history.

While it was not an easy journey, with one of their five children feeling resentful about Rebecca remaining in the relationship, the duo worked at it. Rebecca cited forgiveness, respect, and clarity of purpose as things that helped them.

In a 2015 interview, the 52-year-old actor disclosed that he and Rebecca underwent a 90-day celibacy period that strengthened their love life and left him more in love and attracted to his wife.

The "Brooklyn Nine-Nine" actor mentioned that he and Rebecca cuddled and talked during the three-month period, and they both got to know each other better than before.  The couple is parents to Naomi, Azriel, Tera, Wynfrey, and Isiah. 

In 2016, Terry shared that he and Rebecca were looking to expand their family and adopt a sixth child after the kids harassed them to give them a younger sibling. Despite the pressure from the children, Terry and Rebecca are waiting for the right time.

Although Rebecca is mainly known for her marriage to Terry, she is famous in her own right. The 55-year-old is a talented gospel singer. In 1984, she was crowned Miss Gary, Indiana. She served as an executive producer on the family's show, "The Family Crews."
