Midler married German performance artist Haselberg on 16th December 1984, a mere six weeks after being introduced in Las Vegas by an Elvis impersonator.

Midler allegedly admits that the encouragement she received from Haselberg and his suggestion to go back into comedy re-launched her career. In 1986, she was in Down and Out and Ruthless People that were both huge hits in America. 

They have a daughter together; Sophie Frederica Alohilani, born on 14th December 1986, at age 40 and Midler reportedly suffered a miscarriage in 1987. 

Happy Wedding Anniversary Bette and Martin!
