Celebrate good times c’mon: Terry Crews, 51, and his wife Rebecca King-Crews, 53, celebrated their 30th wedding anniversary Saturday at the Beverly Hills Four Seasons in front of a starry crowd that included Stevie Wonder, 69, and Olivia Munn, 39
‘In the 30 years since we were first married, there were times it seemed life shifted into hyperspeed – our five children going from diapers to high school, the seven-year period in the NFL on six different teams, careers in music and entertainment that we started launched last week but in fact has crossed into 20 years,’ they said.
The couple referenced the highs and lows of the time-frame, saying, ‘There were other instances time ground to a halt – moving to L.A. and sweeping floors to start over, battles with addiction and depression, losing our home and actually breaking up for a time.
‘Through all of this, these obstacles have actually made us stronger … owning the realization that our feelings followed our decisions and not the other way around,’ they said.
The pair, who are parents to five children – Azriel, Isaiah, Naomi, Tera, and Wynfrey – said that ‘choosing to love each other year after year has proven to be the best decision we’ve ever made,’ and that ‘time has always had a wonderful way of showing us what truly matters.’

Rebecca took to Twitter Tuesday, writing, ‘Luv my boo!!!! 30 years later!!!!’
Rebecca last year told E! News that Crews was such a gentleman during their courtship, ‘He almost got stuck in the friend zone … he was a little too nice.’
The America’s Got Talent host has made headlines in recent years in speaking out about a sexual assault he suffered at the hands of Hollywood agent Adam Venit, who he said grabbed his crotch at February 2016 industry party.
Crews last year testified about his experience in front of Congress, saying, ‘Hollywood definitely has been a problem area, simply because so many people who view this as a dream. And what happens is, someone has power over these dreams … you get tricked into thinking that this type of behavior is expected, that it’s part of the job, that this harassment, abuse, even rape, is part of your job description.’
He said of going public with his experience: ‘I wanted these survivors to know that I believe them, I supported them and that this happened to me, too.’
