Terry’s first wife was the 1969 Miss Teenage America, Melissa Babish. The pair tied the knot in 1972, but their marriage only lasted a year. They were soon divorced and Terry found a second wife.
JoJo Starbuck already had a name for herself as she competed at the 1968 and 1972 Olympics as a figure skater. She married Terry in 1976 but the pair split in 1983. They filed for a divorce shortly after their split.
Marriage number three took place the same year that his second divorce got finalized. Charlotte Hopkins got married to Terry for almost two decades and in that time the couple welcomed two daughters, Rachel and Erin. Despite the divorce, the girls have still remained close to their father and are often seen as part of his reality show: The Bradshaw Bunch.
Fourth Times the Charm? When Terry & Tammy Bradshaw Met
Tammy Bradshaw is the fourth wife of Terry . The couple met in 1999 and decided they wanted to take things slow after they had both experienced hurtful divorces.

Born Tameria Alice, Tammy was born October 5, 1961. No information is known about her place of birth or early life but she currently lives in rural Oklahoma. Tammy did work as a model and appeared in various TV shows, building a name for herself before husband Terry Bradshaw came along.
Unlucky in Love
Just like Terry, Tammy has not always been lucky in her own love life. She got married to David Luttrull, but the pair ended up getting a divorce five years later.
Tammy has a daughter, Lacey, who has been accepted into the Bradshaw family with open arms.

The tragic loss has played into a lot of work that Tammy has gone on to do.

Unfortunately, Tammy also had to bury her son-in-law in 2014 as the Bradshaw family got hit by tragedy once more. Rachel Bradshaw had gotten married to former Tennessee Titans player, Rob Bironas, for just three months he died in a car accident on September 20, 2014. Although the family has not spoken in too much detail about the accident, Bironas died from blunt force trauma to the head.

The show has allowed fans to see Terry and Tammy in more domestic limelight and it has gotten wildly popular with the public.
Terry Bradshaw’s Spouse Made a Name for Herself
