Supposed to be married to Oprah Winfrey after his engagement to her in 1992, Stedman Graham and Oprah finally decided that it was better for them both the be “spiritually united” than married. Most of us know and recognize Winfrey because she is so famous, but how many of us know about her partner Graham? Let's find out more from the short bio compiled below. Who doesn't get curious to know more about the spouse of the celebrities they love and see on TV or in the magazine, right?
Stedman Graham was born on 6th March 1951 in Whitesboro, New Jersey, to Stedman Graham and Mary Jacobs Graham. He is 65 years of age and is American by nationality.

From 1982 to 1985, Graham and Robin Robinson were dating. This was before Graham's relationship with Winfrey surfaced. Another fact that has surfaced on many websites is that Graham's wife once was Glenda Graham, but their marriage ended in divorce. Graham has only one child as of now, a daughter.
