The couple split previously as well, with Alvina also filing divorce documents at that time – but ended up reconciling with Anthony.

In September 2015, she filed for divorce from the actor, 51; in the documents, she listed their date of separation as April 1, 2014.

However, in January 2017 she asked an LA judge to dismiss her petition after their reconciliation.

Anthony, who stars on the show Black-ish, and Alvina wed in 1999 and share two children: Kyra, 26, and Nathan, 22.

They originally met in 1989 while they both attended Howard University in Washington DC

Anthony dropped out of Howard University due to financial issues, TMZ reported.

The actor revealed his meet-cute with Alvina in an interview with Parade magazine in 2021: ‘My sophomore year [1989]her freshman year, I knew a girl who lived in the apartment, so I went to knock on the door to invite her to this party that me and my buddies were having.’

Adding: ‘My wife answered the door. I was like, “I was coming to invite Stacey to this party we’re having.” Stacey didn’t show up, but my wife did – and we have been together ever since that night. And I was just me: ‘I got there early, she didn’t see nobody else, she was, “All right, I’m gonna rock out with this dude!” We got married on our 10-year anniversary.’

He is reportedly set to finish his degree this year and graduate alongside his son Nathan from Howard University.

Anthony stars on Black-ish as Andre ‘Dre’ Johnson; he is also an executive producer.
