Maitland Ward is a popular adult entertainment star who’s currently making a killing on OnlyFans. She also used to be a mainstream actress, with recurring roles on TV shows like The Bold and the Beautiful and Boy Meets World. But did you know that the 45-year-old porn star is married?
Here’s what you need to know about Maitland Ward’s husband, Terry Baxter, and what he thinks about her provocative career, according to her in a recent interview with Suggest.
Maitland Ward And Terry Baxter Have Been Married Since 2006
Unlike his well-known wife, Terry Baxter does not have a camera-facing career. He’s a real estate agent-turned banker whom Ward met while she was on a movie set visiting a friend.
According to a 2013 interview with Cupid’s Pulse, the duo were friends first before taking their relationship to the next level.
“If you can’t be best friends, then it’ll never work in the long run,” Ward said. “You have to enjoy spending time with that person. A sense of humor is important too. I love to laugh, and having someone who makes me laugh is the best. I think that’s why [our relationship has] lasted. We started with friendship, trust, and laughter and built from that.”
Ward and Baxter tied the knot on October 21, 2006, at the North Ranch Country Club in Westlake Village, California.
Baxter Is Incredibly Supportive Of Ward’s Adult Film Career
Ward was still a regular TV actress when she met and married Baxter—she didn’t retire from mainstream acting until 2007.
After taking over a decade off from performing, she entered the world of adult entertainment in 2019 when she signed with a talent agency and starred in her first adult feature, Drive. Since then, she’s been a porn industry staple, appearing in films like Lesbian Superstars, We All Do It, Too, Unprofessional, and Poolside Affairs. She also produces content on OnlyFans.
Ward says working in porn has been an amazing experience—but how does Baxter feel about his wife’s new career path? Well, for one, she dedicated her memoir, Rated X, to him. In an interview with Suggest, she expanded on his support.
“Everyone can thank my husband for my career,” the star laughed, adding, “I wanted to do it myself, but he recognized that I needed to do this. And then I was like, wait, I do, and this is fun! “
After she started doing scenes, they both realized how good it was for them. Ward told Suggest, “We did it and it was no big deal and people think, ‘oh, you know, you guys, how can you do this? I mean, will it break up your marriage?’ No, it’s actually the safest thing possible for it if you’re gonna explore sexuality in a marriage.”
When it comes to having sex with other people on camera, the Raw 38 star says it doesn’t bother Baxter because the act is more technical than intimate.
She explained to us, “First of all, they come in, we do the hot sex act or whatever and they leave, there are no emotions attached to it. It’s their job and they know it’s their job. So that was the best thing about it for us actually.”
