Marry, get engaged or date a celeb - you are bound to attain some degree of fame. In Timothy Olyphant's case, the very fact of being the better half of her popular partner has made her famous, but there is absolutely nothing else their faintly interested fans know about them.
Timothy Olyphant has mentioned his wife Alexis Kneif several times. Learn their back-story. Also, learn all about her relationship with her husband and also learn about her kids. Does she have children?
Her Married Life and Husband: How They Met?
She enjoys a strong relationship with her actor husband, Timothy Olyphant. The couple, who first met in 1990, realized that they were meant to be together just after dating each other for about one year. They got married in 1991. They have been married for around 25 years now. They were actually college sweethearts, so she is probably very similar in age to her hubby.
In an interview on 2011, Timothy revealed the secret behind their's successful love life, he said;
“You have to be with the right person, and you both have to be willing to do the work, day in and day out, to make it happen.”
They also have three children together; 1999 born Katherine, 2003 born Vivian and 2001 born Henry. Timothy frequently jokes about his three children, as he did in Ellen in 2014.

He not only resonates his previous argument, "3 children may be too many" but also jokes about being a father of three. He also mentions his dogs, the two Shiloh Shepherds that he calls “Ah-ah!” and “NO.”
But Timothy is not the only one with humor. He said that he had prepared a strong Emmy acceptance speech backing his wife's idea. His wife had given him the idea to accept the award saying:
“I was going to look at [the trophy] and then look out at my wife of twenty years and say, ‘Well, honey, this is it. I’m finally leaving you.”
Unfortunately for Timothy, Kyle Chandler won the Emmy for Friday Night Lights in the category "Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series" in 2011.
Overall, he seems to be a perfect husband with an excellent sense of humor. His story on ‘Ellen’ about how he was trying to make his kids proud of him was adorable and funny at the same time. They look like fun and happy family. Wicked sense of humor Oliver has just does not end there. He made the biggest joke when he said that he would have dumped his wife in Emmy speech.
“Kyle Chandler won the Emmy, it was lovely, I was very happy for him. I feel like he deprived some people of a good speech. My opening line — this was my wife’s idea actually — I was going to look at [the trophy] and then look out at my wife of twenty years and say, ‘Well, honey, this is it. I’m finally leaving you.’”
Also, when asked what being a father feels like. He jokingly said,
It f---ing exhausts you! That's how it changes you! My buddy on the show is expecting a baby. I said, "Imagine I call you at midnight, and I hang up without saying anything. Then I call you two hours later, and I hang up again. This continues. Oh, and by the way, in between my calls, you're wondering if I'm dead." That's what it's like.

Jokes apart, he is a great father, a great husband and God bless the relationship between them.
Timothy Olyphant Victim To A Peeping Tom Incident:
On Ellen Degeneres' show, Alexis's husband Timothy confessed that a peeping tom had taken nude photos of nude at the locker room. The actor was apparently made aware of the incident after the police informed about it. The actor talked about the scenario on Ellen's show saying,
"The cops say, 'we recognized you. And they said: 'but we just want to let you know that it's not a problem, it's never going to get out, but we want to make you are aware of it, so you can be on a list of people to press charges and stuff.''
'I say, 'Whoa, whoa, whoa. It's never going to get out?' And he says, 'No. It's not a problem.' And I say, 'Well, how do I look?'"
Ellen and Timothy went on to joke about the whole thing in a lighthearted manner with Timothy adding,
'Let's think this through here. We could turn this frown around,' he joked. 'I don't know what the angle is, but this could be… Careers have been made out of perhaps less.'
to which Ellen replied with,
'You can undress later and we will just make sure we get that out,'
