Followers of the Girls star, Adam Driver must have seen that the actor has always been brought his wife, Joanne Tucker on the red carpet. And if you are wondering why we have not learned much about them, it is because they wish to keep it low-key. Here’s everything you want to know about the private life of Joanne Tucker and Adam Driver.
Joanne Tucker and Adam Driver met at Juilliard
After two years in the Marine Corp, Driver tore his sternum mountain biking, finishing his tenure as a civil servant. Though he was devastated not to proceed with the call of duty with the soldiers he trained with, he told GQ that finally, his dismissal directed him into acting.
“The Marine Corps is supposed to be the toughest and most rigorous of its class,” Driver says, comparing it to the highly competitive performing arts school. “Obviously the stakes are different. You have the risk of getting shot or killed in one and just embarrassed in the other. I thought, ‘This will be easy.'”
The chance paid off, and Driver got into the school. While attending school in New York where he met his future wife, Joanne Tucker who has also worked in Girls. The two graduated in 2009 and currently live in Brooklyn.
Tucker and Driver tied the knot in 2013
As per the Us Weekly report, Driver and Tucker “got married over the weekend of June 22” in 2013. While not much is known about the weddings, Us Weekly stated that the couple had a “destination wedding” which was attended by Girls creator Lena Dunham. As per the publication’s source, Driver and Tucker “are very sweet together. They’ve been dating forever—years—and live together; [they’re] very comfortable and in love. She was with him before the Girls fame. They both love theater and the arts.“
In a conversation with Broadway.com in 2013, Driver adorably said of his wife, “She taught me what Gouda cheese is… And that you shouldn’t talk with your mouth full and spit on the sidewalk.” Seems like real love.
They supposedly welcomed a kid in 2016
Driver and Tucker are so secretive that they reportedly embraced their first child together, and no-one knew about it. In 2018, Page Six published, “Pals of the actor and his wife say that family members have posted about Tucker’s pregnancy on their private Instagram feeds,” with a source apparently confirming that Driver had a “2-year-old son.”
In 2017, Driver seemed to slip up during an interview and introduce his child, but he immediately stepped it back, and apparently, none of us noticed. At the time, the actor told W, “I look at my dog—this sounds so absurd—but it’s not—I don’t know if I can love anything more. Like, I have a kid, maybe—and be like, ya know, but the dog!“
Meantime, Driver’s costar in Logan Lucky, Channing Tatum, seemed to confirm that the actor had, in fact, welcomed a child. During a joint interview in 2017, Tatum joked to Driver, “Can you imagine you’re just making martinis for your baby?“
And while hosting Saturday Night Live in January 2020, Driver joked, “I’m a husband, and a father. It’s in that order though. I’ve been very clear with my son about that. He’s second to everything.“
The Couple has a dog named “Moose”
A mentioned above, Driver and Tucker have a Rottweiler-pitbull named Moose that they adore so much. Driver told W that Tucker got him the pup for his birthday. He revealed, “I think I was just on a tangent, at Halloween. Fucking Halloween, ridiculous holidays, bullshit. If I had a dog, I’d play with my dog on Halloween. I don’t have to see kids all the time. And she’s like, ‘Well, I’m getting you a goddam dog for your birthday, so shut up.‘” According to The Telegraph, Driver happily lives in Brooklyn with Moose, his wife, and probably the couple’s son.
They have appeared onscreen together
Tucker performed on an episode of Girls with her husband, and the couple also worked in a short film called The Basement together.
Together, they established the Arts in the Armed Forces charity
Motivated by his own time in the Marines, the organization’s goal is to unite active-duty service members, vets, military support staff, and their families around the world to theater, at no cost.
“It’s [aim is] to bring thought-provoking theater-based troop entertainment to an audience that wouldn’t normally be associated with theater,” Driver stated the Guardian.
Despite staying low-key, they have visited the Oscars.
Tucker was found on the arm of Driver at the 2019 Academy Awards.
Though you cab hardly find Driver grinning on the red carpet, he shared on SNL, “People think I hate red carpet stuff, and I do, but it’s just because I’m bad at smiling. I look like a kidnapped person trying to send a message with my eyes.” Though we do not completely agree, at least Tucker’s stunning looks distract from that.
And she’s been by his side as he’s promoted, Marriage Story.
Driver and Tucker seem very beautiful with each other and they share a very good bond. We hope their low-key relationship story is all you want to know about them.
