Vera Rhimes is the mother of Shonda Rhimes

Everyone knows her for the work recognition she got as the showrunner creator, head writer, and executive producer of Grey’s Anatomy, Private Practice, and Scandal.

Is Vera’s successful daughter Shonda married?

Vera’s daughter Shonda is a successful woman and known for her work too. 

But do you know the lady isn’t married to anyone else till now? 

The surprising fact is that she had never been linked with anyone. 

The lady is not interested in getting married and the fact that she was never really into it from before.  

Shonda stated that she had dated a guy but she wasn’t focused on getting official together. 

She is living her life happily with a single status.

Well, the lady is happy without the presence of any men in her life. 

But what does she think about having a husband in the future? 

She is clear and had stated that she has never played the bride thing and the marriage ritual isn’t for her. 

We can see her as an independent, successful woman, and it seems like she doesn’t need the involvement of a man to build an empire for her. 

As for now, nothing about her personal life, including marriage or anything, is around. 

Shonda is a mother of three beautiful children: All daughters

Everyone might think she is not married and has no husband. 

But how come she is a mother? If you have a love for a child, then marriage and men don’t matter. 

So in the case of Shonda, when she appeared on Super Soul Sunday, she clearly stated that since the age of five, she was sure that she would have the presence of three beautiful daughters in her life. 

The lady adopted her first daughter, named Harper Rhimes, in 2002, a second child named Emerson Pearl Rhimes in 2012. 

She welcomed her third daughter Beckett Rhimes in 2013 through gestational surrogacy

She is now happily living with her daughters. 

Wasn’t Shonda Rhimes comfortable with her own body in the past?

The answer to this question is obviously “YES.” Shonda wasn’t satisfied with her own body. 

The way she looked never made her feel happy from inside. Moreover, it was making her more uncomfortable to present herself. 

Therefore, she decided to lose weight. 

Following the schedule, she maintained a healthy diet and sweated her body exercising, which resulted in a decrease of 53 kgs

We must say it has improved her health along with the changes in her physical appearance too.
