Barbra Streisand and husband James Brolin reveal saucy secret they have kept for decades years on their 25th anniversary

Barbra Streisand and James Brolin are celebrating their 25th wedding anniversary this year. Despite their openness about their relationship in the media, the couple recently revealed a secret about their romance that they had kept hidden for years.

Their love story began like many others, with a blind date. However, Streisand had different expectations about Brolin’s appearance, expecting a man with a full head of hair and a beard.

When she saw that Brolin was bald, she couldn’t help but comment on it honestly. Instead of being offended, Brolin found Streisand’s honesty endearing, and he knew she was the one for him.

It took Streisand a few more dates to realize her feelings for Brolin, but soon they were deeply in love and got married in 1998.

Both Streisand and Brolin had previous marriages, with Streisand being married to Elliot Gould and Brolin to Jane Agee and Jane Smithers. Brolin has children from his previous marriages and is a proud grandfather as well.

Brolin adores his wife and once said, “Every night is a new adventure. Sleeping is a waste of time. I can’t wait to see her again in the morning.”

During an interview with Gayle King of CBS Mornings, the couple shared a surprising revelation: before meeting Streisand, Brolin had been celibate for three years. Streisand playfully reprimanded him for sharing this information, but Brolin confirmed it and described the night they broke that celibacy as “wild.”

His reluctance to engage in intimacy stemmed from the disappointment of his two previous marriages. He saw no reason to involve himself in another relationship that might end in failure.

However, his perspective shifted after a friend persuaded him to meet Barbra, and he realized he wanted to marry her. Interestingly, it was Streisand who needed some convincing, and it wasn’t until he proposed for the third time that she finally agreed.
