Not only is Betty White one of the most popular actresses in Hollywood, she's one of the funniest ones, too! She's been around for a very long time, so fans are curious about her health, career, love life, and more! Scroll down to get all your questions answered.
Who was Betty White married to?
Betty has had quite the extensive love life with three different husbands! Back in 1945, she married her first husband, Dick Barker, but they divorced that same year. He was a US Army Air Corps pilot. Two years later, she tied the knot with her second husband, Lane Allen, who was a Hollywood agent. They split in 1949. In an interview with New You, Betty opened up about her first two marriages. "I wish I didn't have two bad marriages. They were probably my fault," she said.
Her third and final marriage was to game show host Allen Ludden. They married in 1963 and remained together until his unfortunate passing from stomach cancer in 1981. We have a feeling if he were still alive, they'd be together today. "Once you’ve had the best, who needs the rest?" Betty has said of their romance. She never remarried.
