Bernadette Robi is a former Sports Illustrated model. Nonetheless, when her name is searched, another personality name also pops out. 

The personality is none other than an American former professional boxer, motivational speaker, and occasional actor, Ray Charles Leonard.

He is nationally and internationally known as 'Sugar' Ray Leonard. As Sugar is a globally recognized personality, his personal life has always remained under the curiosity zone of his fans.

One of the most queried people related to Sugar is his wife, Bernadette. 

Ray and Bernadette have been married for 25 years now and is still going strong in their relationship.

Bernadette and Leonard met in 1990 at a Luther Vandross concert and were introduced by Kenny G, a famous American singer.

At that time, Sugar Ray was going through a ‘personal hell’ according to his own words after the divorce with wife Juanita, who later married Atlanta Braves outfielder Otis Nixon, and also the mother of their sons, Ray Jr. who is 18, and Jarrel who is 9.

Leonard asked Bernadette out three times, but she agreed to go on a date with him only on his fourth attempt.

Leonard and Robi were finally married at her husband’s $8.7 million house in Pacific Palisades, California in August 1993.

Their wedding was quite unique in itself; her husband Sugar Ray reserved a plane to fly on his will with a banner that read "I Love You, Bernadette."

Moreover, he ordered over 10000 roses along with other flowers from the Netherlands to decorate his wedding.

After the wedding, the couple checked in at Bel-Air hotels' Honeymoon suite, which was stocked with champagne, caviar, candles, and soft music, that too from their old acquaintance, Kenny G.

On the tenure of their 25-year-old relationship, the couple shares two children: daughter Camille Leonard and son Daniel Ray Leonard.

But this successful married life comes after a bitter past for the couple; both Bernadette and Leonard went through a failed relationship before they finally found each other.

During Bernadette's previous marrige with football star Lynn Swann was only dated for 22 months before officially getting divorced. 

Similarly, Leonard was previously married to Juanita Wilkinson. 

The couple got married in 1980 and share two children together, Ray Jr. and Jarrel. But the couple got divorced later in 1990. 

Now, Bernadette and Sugar have found happiness in each other, and recently, on 21 August 2019, they celebrated 26th anniversary with their close ones. 

Despite having failed marriages in the past, now it seems like Bernadette and Sugar are only made for each other.
