Timothy and Alexis were college sweethearts, having met when they both attended the University of Southern California.

Although Alexis doesn't have a public social media account (Timothy doesn't either), we can glean a bit about her humorous personality thanks to an interview Timothy did on Conan back in 2012.

Timothy, who was nominated for an Outstanding Lead Actor Emmy in 2011 for his role in Justified, joked that Alexis had the perfect opener for his acceptance speech if he actually won.

According to Timothy, Alexis's idea was that he'd open his gracious speech by looking at his trophy, then he'd look at her and say, "Well honey, this is it. I'm finally leaving you." Timothy's wife sounds like a lady with a great sense of humor!

Do Timothy and Alexis have any kids?

The couple that roasts each other stays together — not only have Timothy and Alexis been going strong for 32 years and counting, but they've raised a brood of 3 kids too!

Timothy and Alexis have two daughters, Vivian Olyphant and Grace Olyphant. They also have one boy, a son named Henry Olyphant.

Although Timothy and Alexis keep most details of their marriage and family life on the down low (which is understandable), Timothy occasionally offers nuggets of marital wisdom, telling Women's Health (via Wide Open Country) that, "You have to be with the right person, and you both have to be willing to do the work, day in and day out, to make it happen."

As for Timothy's kids, they aren't so impressed by their famous dad.

"As they get older, it's kind of sad that they still don't think I'm cool," he jokingly said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show. "And now that they're older, it depresses me a little bit and I find myself trying to impress them and it's pathetic."

To say that Timothy and his wife and kids are goals would be an understatement.
