In a February 2022 interview with Closer, Peter got candid about his marriages when asked if he would do anything over in his life if given the opportunity. 

“I don’t think so. Maybe my second marriage,” he admitted. “My first marriage produced my four children and lasted 25 years. My second was for an hour and a half. I would not do that one again. You know, as you reflect, there are things you would do differently, but I think it all has led to this moment.” 

Who is Peter’s Third Wife Laurie Stewart? 

The West Virginia Music Hall of Fame inductee married his third wife, Laurie, in 1989. Peter gushed to Closer about finding the love of his life. 

“I met Laurie when I was doing La Cage aux Folles. She worked for TWA and was seated next to me in first class,” he said. “She had seen me in La Cage and thought I was gay! That was the beginning. I was 60 years old, and she was 25. But we’ve been together 35 years.” 

In January 2021, both Peter and Laurie were diagnosed with COVID-19. As they recovered from the illness, the Annie actor was grateful to have his wife by his side. “My wife and my children — they have been wonderful,” he shared. “My wife is still taking care of me. I keep getting better because I have so much love in my life.”
