She got married to a journalist, Bob Reid in 1979 and no one knows about their children. They met the first time in Atlanta where Berlinda was busy in the filming of a television show. And Reid was working as a producer of the NBC. They met and fell in love with each other after their first meeting. Their first meet up was too much effective that they spend a few days together and choose each other as a life partner in just 11 days. Yes, I am saying 11 days, as they met and select each other as a life partner in less than two weeks. And got married in Providence, Rhode Island on Valentine’s Day in 1979.
The First 7 years of their married life were too tough for them as they suffer the pain of long relationship distance. They traveled to meet each other as Reid was in New York and Berlinda was working in Los Angeles. They bear this pain of long-distance relationships by relying on phone calls as there were no WhatsApp and other SMS apps at that time. I want to say thanks to the founder of WhatsApp who enabled us to share photos, videos, voice notes, and SMS to our loved ones.
Their long-distance relationship practice was continued for seven years, but finally, Reid makes a decision to quit his job from New York. And he joined CBS jobs as a journalist because Berlinda was working in the same network. Berlinda passed a happy and lavish married life with Reid. Their wedding career proves that they made the right decision in just 11 days to select each other as their life partner. As we did not listen to any rumors on media regarding any issue in their wedding life and separation.
They are happily married for 40 years and still passing a happy married life. No one knows that they welcome any child or not. As they did not disclose any information regarding their family on media.
