She'd been married once before, but it wasn't until she met Rande Gerber that Cindy Crawford knew the meaning of true love. During the March 10 episode of Oprah's Master Class, the 47-year-old supermodel gushes about her restaurateur husband of 14 years.
"We started off as friends, and I know that Rande and I, we will always be friends, no matter what," says Crawford, who was wed to actor Richard Gere from 1991 to 1995. "Being rooted and based in friendship, it keeps the relationship elevated. There's always a certain level of respect. We respect each other's opinion about parenting and our personal life, but also for work stuff . . . We really listen to each other. I would want that friendship in my life no matter what."
Crawford and Gerber, who are parents to 13-year-old son Presley and 11-year-old daughter Kaia, rely on their strong bond during particularly stressful times. "I have meltdowns," the supermodel admits, noting that she never acts unprofessional on set. "We all have those days at home where you don't have to have on your game face as much."
