How to Watch

On September 4, the America's Got Talent Judge shared a sweet snapshot on his Instagram of himself and his wife wearing matching outfits. In the picture, the couple both grinned while they rocked retro-inspired tie dye T-shirts, baggy flare jeans, and sunglasses. According to the caption, the two were heading to a 1960s theme party for actor John Stamos' 60th birthday, and the costumes totally fit the theme.

Mandel is no stranger to wearing bright matching outfits with his family members, as he and his daughter Jackelyn Schultz both wore neon floral overalls last month.

All about Howie Mandel's wife, Terry

Howie's romance with Terry stems all the way back to their teens. The two first met at a concession stand in Toronto, and they then started dating in high school.

“We were in line to buy French fries at the snack shop at the Y, and I didn’t have enough money, so I borrowed a quarter from her, and I’ve been paying her back ever since,” Howie jokingly told the Streets of Toronto.

Their first date was truly an adventure. “We drove to the movies in my mother’s Cutlass Supreme. The car hit an ice patch and wound up teetering on its side before coming down on four wheels,” Howie told The Wall Street Journal.

The two then married in 1980, and have been going strong ever since. Howie and Terry currently share three children together, Jackelyn Shultz, born in 1984, Alex in 1989, and Riley, born in 1992.

All about Howie Mandel's podcast "Howie Mandel Does Stuff"

Speaking of Howie's children, he and Jackelyn currently host a hilarious podcast titled "Howie Mandel Does Stuff." They typically upload weekly episodes that last about an hour long, where they ask celebrity guests some raunchy questions about their personal lives and backgrounds. 

“[The podcast] came out of the fact that during the pandemic, we couldn’t see each other—we would spend hours on the phone together, me and Jackie—and we’d be making prank calls, and we would be just laughing, and being inappropriate, and pranking her mom, just having fun,” Howie explained in an interview with Access Hollywood. “My wife would walk in and go, ‘Who is this for, what is this even for?’ And I’d go, ‘We’re just having fun.'”
