Roseanne Barr is one of America's funniest and most celebrated standup comedian - who has dominated the TV industry for decades now.

Husband & Children
Roseanne Barr, also known as Roseanne in the same-titled ABC show, had a very rough childhood. She suffered from Bell’s palsy and traumatic brain injury, which led her to many hospital visits.
On top of that, she was also a troublesome child and a wild teenager. The comedian became pregnant for the first time when she was just 17 and gave birth to a child - whom she gave up for adoption.

Following the incident, Roseanne ran from her parent's house a year later and never returned. She even accused them of sexually abusing her as a child but later retracted her statement on The Oprah Winfrey Show.
The effects of her childhood were also seen in her relationships from time to time. She married three times and had five children from her different husbands.
The comedian first got married to a motel clerk, Bill Pentland, in Colorado in 1974. The former couple shared a 16-year-long relationship and nurtured three children; Jessica, Jennifer, and Jake in between that period.

Unfortunately, the relationship soon turned sour, and the pair split up in 1990. However, Roseanne did not stop herself from romancing. She married a fellow comedian named Tom Arnold in 1990.
The former husband and wife met for the first time in Minneapolis, where Tom opened her stand-up act. Their marriage also did not last long, and the two parted ways in 1994.
The Utah native returned to the marriage circle again when she tied the knot with her third spouse Ben Thomas - her security guard - in 1995.
The pair went through in-vitro fertilization to have a son named Buck. There were complications during the birth, and rumors spread that her son died. But, the information was baseless and did not have any proof, which meant her son is not dead.
After sharing a son, the couple parted ways in 2002. As of now, the comedian is dating Johnny Argent and lives with him in Hawaii.
