Here is Everything We Know About Robin Dearden
Robin Dearden is not the First Woman Bryan Married
Before Bryan met his current wife, Robin, he was previously married to Mickey Middleton, who was a writer. They got married on November 10, 1977. At the time he was just 23 years old. Sadly, after 5 years together, they split in 1982.
There is not much information about Mickey, how they met, or what led to the divorce. However, Bryan revealed it was an amicable breakup. He added that they loved each other as people but they were not in love with each other.
Bryan added that his marriage to Mickey was a case of young people getting married before fully realizing what they wanted from life and getting to know if they were compatible or not. Before they could determine all these, they were already married, which was why it didn’t last.
She Met Her Husband on the Set of a Movie
Robin Dearden met her husband, Bryan Cranston in 1986, on the set of Airwolf. Bryan appeared on the show as a guest artist. He played the role of a jilted ex who held a cruise of sorority girls hostage. Robin on the other hand played the part of one of the sorority sisters being held captive.
In an interview, she revealed that he was holding a gun to her head when they first met. Robin said she thought he was cute while he was holding the gun. Although they both felt the spark at the time, they couldn’t pursue it further as they were involved with different people at the time.
They met a year later and things picked up between them. The rest they say is history.
Her Husband Proposed to Her in the Most Absurd Way Ever
After having dated for a while, Bryan decided it was time to take their relationship to the next level. However, the problem was that he couldn’t face her. Bryan revealed that he loved her too much that if he tried to propose to her the conventional way, he would burst into tears, so he came up with an idea.
He decided to propose to her while they were snuggled up against each other, taking a bubble bath. He struggled with where to keep the ring and decided to put it on his small toe, and asked her to marry him. Robin said yes and picked the ring from his toe. She later revealed that she first thought “What the hell is this?”
Over 3 decades later, Cranston and Robin are so much in love as though they were still newlyweds. Bryan reveals that his favorite thing about his wife was how she gets giddy anytime she sees a firefly. He added that she is the greatest love of his life and their first kiss was the best of his life.
Robin is a Mom of One
Four years after her marriage, the celebrity wife became the mother. She welcomed her daughter, Taylor Dearden Cranston on February 12, 1993. She is the only child of Robin and her husband, Bryan.
