Who were the husbands of Glynis Johns?
The Mary Poppins actress tied the knot four times over the course of her century-long life.
She saw her first husband, Anthony Forwood, in 1941 while rehearsing for Quiet Wedding, where she played bridesmaid Miranda Bute.
The year that followed, the English actor asked for Glynis's hand in marriage a month after their first date in 1942.
They welcomed an only child, Gareth Forwood, on October 14, 1945 in Marylebone, London.
Their marriage ended just three years after the birth of their son. The reason given for the divorce was 'adultery'. The sun reports.
But Glynis didn't give up on love and eventually became romantically involved with Encore co-star Antony Darnborough in 1951.
Antony put the question to Glynis from Sunningdale Golf Club in Berskhire.
However, their love affair was not meant to happen as their marriage failed.

After her first marriage fell apart, Glynis was briefly engaged to Encore co-star Antony Darnborough (pictured 1951), but the couple never married.
After the failed romance, the single mother married Royal Navy officer David Foster in Manhattan, New York, in 1952.
Four years after her divorce from David in 1956, the actress made it official with her third husband, businessman Cecil Henderson.
Cecil claimed that their marriage failed because Glynis was unfaithful.
Her last husband came in the form of United States Air Force Captain and writer Elliott Arnold.
They walked down the aisle in Los Angeles in 1964 and divorced nine years later in 1973.
When asked if she might tie the knot for the fifth time after divorcing in 1973, she said The sun: 'I would tread very softly in that area. Very soft.
“I certainly wouldn't do anything rash again, and I would have to have a lot in common with whoever I wanted to marry next time.”
Glynis outlived all four of her husbands, including her only son, Gareth, who died of a heart attack on October 16, 2007.
