her father's wishes Aretha began dating a family acquaintance
named Ted White. In 1961 they were quickly married in Ohio by
a judge. White became her personal manager as well as co-writer.
Shortly afterward, she purchased a house on Sorrento Avenue in
northwest Detroit, where she resided for the next decade. Their
son Teddy (Ted White Jr.) was born in 1964. She and Ted divorced
in 1969. Teddy is the musical director and guitarist of her touring
band. From 1969 until 1976, she had a seven-year relationship
with her road manager Ken Cunningham. (Although she and Ted White
did not divorce until late 1969, Aretha conceived her fourth child
in June of that year.) In the early 1970s the couple moved from
Detroit to New York City, at which time Aretha's grandmother moved
into her Sorrento Avenue home. Their son Kecalf (from the initials
of his parents' names: Kenneth E Cunningham Aretha Louise Franklin
and pronounced "kelf") was born on March 28, 1970 at
Detroit's Henry Ford Hospital." - The Internet 2011
