Renee Elise, 47, is married to Alexis Johnson, an attorney. The couple tied the knot on 10th December 2002. During an interview with Resident, she mentioned that she wants to be with a man who will happily bear every kind of ups and downs in her life.
"Most importantly, he’s just very happy for me—he loves the show more than I do, if that’s possible. He’d be supportive anyway, even if he didn’t love it, but it’s helpful that when I come home he’s listening to the demos. He just wants me to be happy and I am happy because he is wonderful."
