On social media, tributes to the late Kirstie Alley, who died on December 5 at the age of 71, continue to stream in. Her previous spouse, fellow actor Parker Stevenson, recently shared a throwback photo of the couple with some sweet remarks.
He is so thankful for their years together, and for the two very lovely kids and now grandkids that they have, Stevenson said in the caption of an Instagram image. She will be sorely missed. With love, Parker.
The Emmy-winning actor, who won two Emmys (for “Cheers” and “David’s Mother”), died after a short fight with cancer.
Stevenson and Alley, who were married from 1983 until 1997, co-starred in the 1986 miniseries “North & South: Book 2, Love and War.” After she miscarried, they adopted 2 kids, William True in 1992 and Lillie in 1994. In 1997, the couple divorced.
Very sorry, Parker, comedian Kevin Nealon commented in Stevenson’s Instagram comment thread. He is thinking about Parker and his family.
Their mom’s zeal and love for life, her kids, grandkids, and her numerous animals, not to forget her unending delight of creating, were unsurpassed and leave them encouraged to live life to the fullest just as she did, True and Lillie stated in a statement Dec. 5.
Before marrying Stevenson, the “Cheers” star was married to Bob Alley from 1970 until 1977.
