Raven-Symoné credits her wife, Miranda Pearman-Maday, for inspiring her to lose weight, sharing they didn’t want the “til death do us part” part of marriage to come early.

“This was because we want to have a life together,” the former Disney star, 35, told E! News on Friday.

“She doesn’t want to take me to an early grave and I want to make sure I am there for her in the best health possible.”

Symoné revealed in May that she had dropped a “s–t ton” of weight — or, to be more precise, 28 pounds.

“You’re incredible, honey,” Maday, 33, said in support at the time via an Instagram video the pair posted. “You’re doing so good.”

The couple announced they tied the knot in June 2020.

“Got married to a woman who understands me from trigger to joy, from breakfast to midnight snack, from stage to home,” Symoné wrote on Instagram at the time. “love you Mrs. Pearman-Maday! Let’s tear this world a new a–hole!!!”

While she may not be enjoying as many midnight snacks these days, the “That’s So Raven” star told “Good Morning America” in June what does work for her to keep the weight off: “very minimal exercise” and “avid fasting.”

“I make sure I have a minimum of [a] 14-hour fast between dinner and … breakfast,” she said, insisting that the approach works for her. “I don’t try to speak for anybody else.”

The former “Cosby Show” star opened up about some of the struggles she’s faced dealing with her weight in the spotlight, saying, “The way that people were treating me while I was bigger was emotionally damaging.”

In 2017, Symoné revealed mental health issues that stemmed from years of bullying over her weight.

“I love embracing your body,” she told People, disclosing that she was questioned over her size when embarking on her music career. “[I was told] I was too big to be doing an hour-and-a-half concert: ‘I don’t know how she can dance being that big.’”

However, the former child star told “GMA” she no longer loses weight with the goal of fitting into a certain size, but rather to “make sure my body is healthy and prepared to deal with old age.”
