These two sweethearts met at the University of Southern California and started dating while still students there. At the time, neither of them could have predicted Timothy's meteoric rise to stardom as an actor. Indeed the fact that they started dating before he became famous and wealthy contributed to their long marriage. Alexis is indeed a supported wife and a reason behind Timothy's successful career in Hollywood.


Alexis and Timothy were betrothed at an early age, but they didn't appear to be in a hurry to raise a family. They married in 1991 but opted to wait eight years before starting a family. They had a good chance to spend time with each other before starting a family. Grace Katherine Olyphant was born on June 20, 1999, eight years into their marriage. Continuing on, two years after childbirth with her first kid, Alexis and Timothy became pregnant with their second child, Henry Olyphant, in 2001.

Finally, Alexis had her third child, a daughter. Vivian Olyphant is the family's youngest member and also their favorite. They are still living in Los Angeles. Furthermore, as previously said, all of the children are rather young and are now studying. The children are as laid-back as their mother and prefer to enjoy a private existence.
