She is also a talented author known for her books "Grandma, Tell Me a Story," "In the Face of Jinn," and "Heart & Desire." About writing, she said, "I didn't start writing until the age of 22. English was never my strong point, but I do dearly love a good yarn."

She married her high school sweetheart, Ron, in 1975 and has since maintained their incredible love for each other. With over 40 years of marriage, many have asked the couple their secret to a long-lasting union. Ron said:

"There's no tactic other than communication is really important. You have to learn to communicate and have difficult conversations in constructive ways."

Ron has gushed about his wife several times, giving her credit for keeping things together during difficult times. Although their relationship didn't go without problems, the couple always knew their love was stronger than the hurdles. In a 2013 interview, he said:

"I felt really lucky when we met. It's crazy. We were teenagers. It shouldn't have worked. We got married young [and] that shouldn't have worked either, and yet it really and truly has."

HOW MANY CHILDREN DOES RON HOWARD HAVE?

The couple shares four children, Bryce, Paige, Jocelyn, and Reed. Bryce has followed in her parents' footsteps as an actress, known for her appearance in the "Twilight" saga.

Meanwhile, her twin sisters, Paige and Jocely, have pursued different paths from each other. While Paige also became an actress, Jocelyn chose a career away from the spotlight. Although, she did appear in one "Arrested Development" episode.

Their youngest brother, Reed, has chosen an athletic career. He is a professional golf player and a YouTuber, sharing content about his sport. His official YouTube channel is Reed Howard Golf.

Although Ron and Cheryl's children pursued different paths in life, they remain close to each other, as evident through Instagram posts.
