With a lifestyle immersed in decadence, many relationships by rock stars tend to fail or do not last long. But the rock and roll star Alice Cooper has proved it wrong. He has been married to Shery Goddard for forty years by now. When his wife Sheryl met him for the first time, she was just 18 years old teenager. The teenager didn’t know the meeting would be turned into a long-lasting relationship. So, who is Sheryl Goddard for whom Alice has dedicated his life?
Sheryl Goddard was born on May 20, 1956, in the United States of America. Goddard hasn’t revealed many chapters of her life including her family and educational background. Before she met Alice, she was a dancer and a choreographer. So, we can guess she was interested in dancing since her childhood days and must have joined some formal classes regarding dance.
A career as a Dancer
Sheryl is a choreographer and a ballerina by profession. She used to perform in many events and shows as a dancer. Though much not is known about her dancing career, we do know that she met her future husband Alice Cooper while she gave an audition for one of his shows. Sheryl has even served as a dance teacher before she bloomed in the public scrutiny.
After she got hitched to the rockstar, she has tried a little bit in acting in Alice’s projects. As per her IMDB profile, she is an actress credited for Sgt. Pepper’s Lonely Hearts Club Band, AliceCooper: Welcome to My Nightmare and The Strange Case of Alice Cooper.
How Did Sherly and Alice’s Whirlwind Romance Begin?
Sheryl and Alice Cooper are one of those couples in Hollywood who have survived more than four decades together. They are inseparable and are together since Sherly was just eighteen years old. The first time they met was when Sherly auditioned as the dancers for the Welcome To My Nightmare tour.
They wanted a classically trained ballerina and Sheryl was the one. Alice and Sheryl didn’t really meet each other until they went on the stage for rehearsal. They ended up on stage every night together rehearsing ballerina. She didn’t know who Alice was and wasn’t aware of the rock and roll before.
They had a good talk to each other when a party was thrown in Alice’s hotel for all the crew members. As per Sheryl, they were so involved in the conversation that they didn’t even notice everyone leaving the room. On this course, they ended up having their first kiss. After the incident, they decided to continue their relationship.
This is how their romantic relationship began. Even though Alice and Sherly are married now, the rockstar still treats her as his girlfriend. Because he still persuades as she is still not his wife and tries new ways to impress her. These efforts are the thing that has kept them together for so long.
Wedding Bells for the Couple
After dating for a year, Sheryl and Alice got married on March 20, 1976. Their private wedding ceremony was held at Acapulco, Mexico. Their clergyman fathers officiated their ceremony. But, their marriage got off to rocky start because of Alice’s addiction to drinking. In 1977, Sheryl sent him to a rehab center in New York. Unfortunately, his addiction continued to take a toll on their marriage.
In 1983, Goddard filed for divorce on account of his drinking. Their divorce was heard at Maricopa Country Superior Court on 30th January 1984. However, they again reconciled their love before their divorce got finalized.
With time passing by, their relationship has got stronger and stronger. The duo has come a long way in their relationship celebrating the 40th anniversary without any rough patches. When asked what’s the secret behind their lasting relationship, the singer revealed:
“Marry the girl you are in love with. You know what, we have never cheated on each other. First of all, mary the girl you are in love with. That’s the important thing. Don’t just marry the girl that you love.”
Their courtship has blessed them with three kids-two daughters and one son. They welcomed their first child Calico Cooper in 1981. Four years later, they again gave birth to their second child Dashiell. The duo again expanded thair family by welcoming Sonora Rose in 1993.
