American actress Barbara Niven has carved her name on the Hollywood stardom with her countless involvements in the TV and movie sectors. Some of her few credits include The Rat Pack (1998), A Perfect Ending (2012), and Chesapeake Shores (2016).
She has won the Best Supporting Actress for her performance in Hamlet’s Ghost at the Cinerock International Film Festival in 2015 and Best Actress for A Perfect Ending at the La Femme International Film Festival in 2012.
Dating, Married, Husband?
Actress Barbara has tried her love resonance with few partners over the years, and it seems that it has not worked out for her. Her earliest marriage dated back to 1974, where she was associated with Ronald Garrison. The couple did not last for a long time and separated shortly after.
In pursuit of her life partner, she got married to David Alexander in 1985. Things seemed to work for the duo for a while but sadly ended with reasons unknown to the public.
Barbara then spent some years single until her marriage with her third husband David Niven Jr. in 1993. She walked down the aisle within 1998. Her ex-husband David works as a producer and actor and is best known for his contributions in Rush Hour 3 (2007), The Eagle has Landed( 1976), and The Night They Saved Christmas (1984). The couple split in 1998, and since then, the actress has not been seen dating anyone.
As of 2019, the actress has kept her personal life under the shadows. In case you are skeptical, she doesn’t fit the lesbian category though, as she has a record of relationship with several men in the past.
Children With Husband
Barbara and her third husband David Niven share a daughter by the name of Jessica.
Although Barbara rarely talks about her daughter, in 2015, Hall Mark Channel posted a lovely picture of Barbara with her daughter Jessica. The photo caption included Barbara’s message thanking her daughter for making her a grandmother.
