Loni Anderson Found Her Happily Ever After with Spouse Bob Flick
After three failed marriages, Loni Anderson finally found her happily ever after with her spouse, Bob Flick.
In May 2008, the WKRP in Cincinnati actress married the founder of the 1960s folk band The Brothers Four.
The ceremony was attended by friends and family, including son Quinton Reynolds, whom she shared with Burt Reynolds.
Her son was very supportive of the union as he walked her down the aisle.
As the story goes, Anderson met her spouse in 1960, a few years after The Four Brothers landed at No.2 on the pop charts with 'Greenfields' at a movie premiere in Minneapolis.
According to reports, a local newspaper had sent the actress out to pose with the group for a fan photo op with Flick.
During an interview with Studio 10, the actress opened up about finding her soul mate after 45 years.

The couple dated in 1963 but reconnected much later and agreed that it was destiny that they were meant to be together.
"We do say that. I mean, it is so bizarre how we came back together from our beginnings," said the actress.

Although the couple looked like the perfect match, in 1993, Reynolds announced the couple would split up.
At that time, Reynolds's representative said their relationship was "irretrievably broken" and that the actor had the utmost respect for Anderson.
However, his respect for his former spouse and their separation soon turned tumultuous as the duo turned against each other.
Reynolds divulged the intimate details of their marriage and publicly bashed Anderson.
He accused her of cheating on him and being a bad mother.
The actor even revealed the intimate details of the couple's relationship, stating that he had "not touched her in the biblical sense for almost three years."
However, Anderson had a different story.
She revealed Reynolds would physically abuse her while he was allegedly under the influence of drugs.
Despite their tumultuous past, two buried the hatched right before Reynolds' death.
