Alvin Louise Martin is the ex-husband of Whoopi Goldberg. Whoopi, real name Caryn Elaine Johnson professionally serves as an actor, author, comedian, and television personality.

Has Whoopi got married thrice?

If you only think that Alvin is the only one the lady tied the knot with, you are mistaken. 

Whoopi had already followed the marriage ritual thrice with three different men. Let's get into the details with all of them. 

Starting with the first, she tied knot with Alvin Martin. The lady got together with him in 1973

Unfortunately, their relationship didn't last long but made this one a long marriage of six years with the Alvin

Her second husband was David Claessen; professionally, the man serves as a Dutch cinematographer. Their togetherness lasted for two years, starting from 1986 to 1988

None of her ex-spouses had won Whoopi's heart

Yes, you heard it true. The lady had stated about it a long time ago. Surprisingly, none of the men she had been with had won her heart. 

But the lady had confessed she had fallen in love only once But denied to spell out his name in public. 

Whoopi is the kind of woman who chose to stay alone and is a very private person, non-answerable to anyone in her personal space. 

She thought that doing so would give her more clarity towards her goal and to be able to achieve the things she wanted in her life.

Is she the wife of Ted Danson?

Whoopi isn't the wife of Ted. Ted, real name Edward Bridge Danson III, is as an actor and a producer. The two of them had been in a relationship back in the 90s

There were several rumors about the pairs being spouses but the rumor came to be false. They have not tied the knot.

How did the former pair meet?

Getting into the details, the duo met on the late-night talk show, which gave them an opportunity to be friends.

Several years later, they were signed opposite each other for a movie, the beginning of their affair. The pair didn't make their relationship out in public as the man was married to another woman at that time. 

But after Ted separated from his spouse, Ted and Whoopi were spotted together. Unfortunately, this relationship of hers also wasn't meant to be forever. And the pair split up with each other later.

Expensive Divorce of a time

Here we will point out one of the most expensive divorces not of Whoopi but her former lover Ted. Ted's wife decided to part their ways suddenly after getting to know that he is in an affair with Whoopi

Whoopi at that moment just got separated from David, but the man was still in a relationship with his partner. After getting the news, she decided to leave him with her two children and $30 million

Whoopi Goldberg raised by a single parent

All her audience only knows about her professional life and her love life but not the life she had lived back then when she was a young girl. 

Whoopi originally belonged to Manhattan and is born to Robert James Johnson Jr. (Father) and Emma Johnson (Mother). 

To make a long story short, the artist had stated her mother as powerful and wise because Emma had raised Whoopi and her brother as a single parent.
