Although he calls her his “wife,” the paperwork hasn’t yet been completed
Bridgid and Don Cheadle have been together since 1992, although she has never worn a wedding ring. Rosewood, a 1997 film, was her most well-known part. Ayana and Imani, their daughters, were born to them.
But he still calls her his “wife” even though the paperwork hasn’t been filed yet. After so many years together, we think it’s just easier to refer to someone as “husband” or “wife.”
