Rob Lowe and his wife are just weeks away from marking their 28th wedding anniversary, and what better place to celebrate than Monte Carlo?
The two met on a blind date in the early 1980s, and decades later, Sheryl Berkoff was by her husband’s side on Tuesday at the Monte Carlo TV Festival. She was camera-ready in a glittering fringed dress while Lowe opted for a dark blue tux.
Although they first met in 1983, the romance didn’t begin for another seven years when Berkoff was hired as Lowe’s makeup artist on set of 1990’s “Bad Influence.” They wed on July 22, 1991.
Two years after they wed, the couple welcomed their first son, Matthew Edward. Now 26, he’s a Duke University graduate while their younger son, John Owen, recently graduated from Stanford.

It was two years before their marriage that Lowe turned his life around, quitting drugs and alcohol after a tumultuous wave of negative headlines and controversy. In May 2019, he celebrated 29 years of sobriety.
“Thank you to all those who have inspired me on this wonderful, challenging and life-changing journey,” Lowe wrote on social media of his sobriety milestone. “If you, or someone you know, are struggling with alcohol or addiction, there CAN be a future of hope, health and happiness. And it comes one day at a time.”
