Chadwick Boseman’s wife fights back tears in emotional Golden Globes acceptance speech

Boseman and Ledward started dating in 2015, with the couple getting engaged in October 2019 and secretly marrying afterwards.

Their marriage was confirmed in a statement from the actor’s family after his death. 

Chadwick continued to work on several films and devoted his time to visiting sick children in hospital despite being diagnosed with stage 3 cancer in 2016.

According to a report by The Hollywood Reporter, apart from his family, Chadwick “only told a small group of insiders” about his cancer battle.

“No one involved with Black Panther was aware,” a source told the publication.
