Kimberly Kathryn Buffington, known as Kimberly Quaid, is a real estate agent and former wife of American actor Dennis Quaid. Her ex-husband, Dennis, gained popularity in the '80s with roles in Breaking Away, The Right Stuff, and Innerspace.
Kimberly is 49 years old. She was born on October 17, 1971, in Austin, Texas, USA, to parents Dee Buffington and Thomas B. Buffington.
Her father, Thomas, was the founder and chairman of Buffington Homebuilding Group and served as president of NPC Austin in the early '80s. Talking about her height, she is cited to be 5 ft and 8 in (1.76 m) tall.
The 49-year-old has three siblings: two brothers, Blake Buffington and Dow Wright, and a sister Robin Banister. Her grandparents were Dewey Lee Buffington and Nora Armstrong Buffington.
Meanwhile, Dennis is 66 years old. He was born in Houston, Texas, to Juanita B. "Nita" Quaid, a real estate agent, and William Rudy Quaid, an electrician. Quaid attended Paul W. Horn Elementary School in Bellaire and Pershing Middle School in Houston.
Kimberly and Dennis were married for 14 years before their divorce in 2018. The two tied the knot on July 4, 2004, in a ceremony held at Quaid's ranch in Paradise Valley, Montana.
Together, they have two fraternal twins: son Thomas Boone Quaid and daughter Zoe Grace Quaid, born via surrogate at Cedars Sinai Hospital in Beverly Hills on November 8, 2007.
The twins were accidentally administered 1,000 times the recommended dosage of the drug Heparin on November 18, 2007, but luckily the babies recovered. Following this, Quaid filed a suit against the drug manufacturer Baxter Healthcare and later went on to be a patient-safety advocate.
Kimberly filed for divorce in March 2012 but withdrew the papers in April 2012. That summer, both moved to California but decided to separate just months later.
The second time, Dennis filed for divorce in November 2012, but both reconciled, leading to divorce dismissal by September 2013. The couple issued a joint statement on divorcing for the third time on June 28, 2016, which was finalized on April 27, 2018.
While Kimberly's net worth has not been revealed, it is estimated at $4 million as of 2021. TMZ released the financial details of their divorce settlement in 2018. According to that, Buffington would be receiving a hefty $2 million for spousal support plus another million dollars for their property settlement.
"She keeps her 2014 Mercedes, he gets the 2007 Land Rover, the 2012 Mercedes and the 2013 Honda. He gets their pad in Austin, and they're splitting the proceeds from the sale of their family home," TMZ wrote.
The 49-year-old would also receive the split of the residuals for movies he made after they got married. While the former couple will be sharing joint custody, Buffington got about 75% of the physical custody. Moreover, she would receive $13,750 per month in child support. The amount will increase if Quaid earns over $1.3 million in a year.
Dennis now makes $150 thousand per episode and has a net worth of $30 Million. The 66-year-old actor sold his Pacific Palisades for $3.315 million in 2013. That same year, he had bought a house in Los Angeles for $5.1 million, putting it up for sale at $5.9 million in March 2019.
