Magic married Cookie on September 14, 1991 and had one son, Ervin III, a daughter, Elisa whom they adopted in 1995 and Andre Johnson from his previous marriage to ex wife Melissa Mitchell.
Earlitha “Cookie” Kelly or simply Cookie had just found out about her pregnancy the same week Magic came out to the public that he had contracted HIV.
Cookie's fear then..
Cookie said at Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation: 'The scariest part for me was not knowing if I had it,' and added 'Then that week I found out I was pregnant, so I didn't know if my baby had it...back then you had to wait at least 10 days to find out what your results were, so that was traumatic.'
Cookie Johnson works on spreading the word about HIV/AIDS, educating people how to survive. Recently Cookie started a clothing line called CJ for average sized women.
On November 7, 2011; Magic celebrated his 20th anniversary since his announcement and with his wife by his side.
