Cherie Johnson Reveals She Got Married to Darius McCrary At 12

American actor Cherie Johnson, known for her role in Family Matters, has created utmost confusion in social media regarding her husband. 

Someday, her husband is Darius McCrary, and someday it's Shawn Harrison. It sure is confusing, but it seems like Johnson has finally cleared the air, and going by her latest statement, it's McCrary. 

Is Cherie Johnson Married?

"Did Cherie Johnson marry at the age of 12?" would have been such an exciting title, but it might have been a bit too much. 

But hey! That would still not be clickbait, as Cherie actually admitted to it. In an interview with Glamour magazine, the Punky Brewster actress was asked about her favorite memories from working on Family Matters. 

While the answer was expected to be "Amazing," Johnson's answer was an interesting one, and we surely are not complaining.

Johnson revealed how she and Darius had the same agent, and so he was her husband since she was 12. She added, 

'At our agency Christmas party he said to me, “One day you're going to be my wife.” So he's always been my husband.''

Okay.. it kind of would have been clickbait! But nonetheless seems like the two are married now and have settled down; after all, Darius was certain to make her his wife. 


Well, wrong! 

Although back in 2020, Cherie introduced Darius as her 'husband' in her podcast, the two are not actually married.

How are we so sure?

Well, it was revealed by Cherie herself. In the same interview with Glamour when she was asked, "Did you guys ever date?" she revealed, 

"No. And we're not married, either, but the world thinks we are."

The world really thought they were! SO DID WE!

But it seems Cherie was just having fun with the curiosity of fans, and what do we know; they might have taken in all the fun from just looking at the ongoing rumors and specualtions regarding their relationship and laughed together. 

All and all, the two seem to be extremely good friends. The Family Matters co-stars' amity runs as deep as three decades.

Back in 2015, Cherie tweeted how she met Darius 26 years ago at The Magic Castle, and things have been magical ever since. 

She wished her husband (well, let's play along) a happy anniversary. McCrary's reply followed on the tweet where he also wished his wife a happy anniversary. He wrote, 

"That day was written N the stars many moons ago & its still FRESH . Happy anniversary babe, love u eternally. xoxo"

Johnson again created quite a stir on social media when she wished another of her Family Matters co-star, Shawn, a happy birthday. 

On the post, she wished him as her "confidant, husband who never wanted me, my voice of reason."

Cherie really knows how to cause a stir, and she definitely knows how social media works. At this point, we surely know it was a joke, and Johnson herself admitted that it actually was a joke on the comments.

Although a lot to be said, the trio is undoubtedly one of the best friends to each other, and it certainly is refreshing to witness all the fun. 

It is clear that Johnson remains unmarried. However, she has a daughter who is of 7-years old.

Unfortunately, it is not known who her baby daddy is, and Johnson is stagnant on maintaining the details of her (actual) relationship, an unknown matter.
