Blair Underwood and Desiree DaCosta

Like a scene from a romantic comedy, Underwood started his marriage to DaCosta off right by proposing on the moonlit streets of Paris by repeating their favorite love phrase: "Girl, I sure like having you around." Cut to 20 years later, and Desiree doesn't seem to be going anywhere. The couple have three children, the eldest of whom was named after the city where Blair popped the question.
