There’s a lot of work that goes into making a career out of something that a person loves.
Here’s Agyness Deyn, who completely changed her name and started off on a clean slate.
Ex-wife to Giovanni Ribisi, one of the most famous Hollywood actors, Agyness has a very serene family life. Here, learn more about Agyness, who her husband is, and the rest of it.
What Happened To Agyness Deyn & Giovanni Ribisi?
Deyn and the “Sneaky Pete” actor Giovanni Ribisi began dating in the 2010s.
Sometimes after dating, Deyn and Ribisi married each other in a very swiftly planned wedding ceremony.
In 2012, Agyness Deyn and Giovanni Ribisi married each other at the Los Angeles County Registrar.
Most people who knew the couple were in shock about the wedding ceremony as it was not planned at all.
Later, in an interview, Agyness stated how she felt about marrying Giovanni.
‘I don’t know. I suppose you meet someone and you’re just like… you know. Obviously, if someone’s marrying someone, they’re bringing a lot of really good stuff… So…’
Did Agyness Follow Scientology?
Giovanni Ribisi’s marriage to Deyn was his second one. He was previously married to Mariah Waterfell O’Brien.
Little known fact, Ribisi follows Scientology, and so did his ex-wife Mariah O’Brien.
So, did Agyness also follow Scientology after she married Giovanni?
No. Agyness did not.
However, Deyn did comment on how people started her asking about religion after she began dating Giovanni and later married him.
“I just think it’s funny because no one really ever asked me about religion before. No one was like, “What’s it like going out with a Christian?” Now people ask me about it. Maybe it’s because it’s a new religion and people are curious about it.”
Agyness later publicly praised her husband as an amazing man.
“My husband is an amazing man.”
Unfortunately, her marriage with amazing husband Giovanni did not last very long.
Agyness and Giovanni Divorce
After more than two years of marriage, things began tumbling down for Deyn and Ribisi.
Initially, the couple did not have any trouble, but as two years went by, it had reached a point where they couldn’t stay together.
In February of 2015, Giovanni filed for divorce from Agyness, citing irreconcilable differences as the reason.
Despite stating irreconcilable differences as the official reason, Ribisi and Deyn both never really talked about the real issue.
From what it looked like, Giovanni and Agyness took the decision for divorcing quite amicably.
Meeting Joel McAndrew
In 2015, the same year Agyness and Giovanni divorced each other, she met another man named Joel McAndrew.
He wears trendy yet geeky spec, has an attractive looking ruffled hair, and sharp jawlines as well.
No wonder why Agyness likes Joel.
After meeting for the first time, Agyness and Joel hit it off quite nicely. Both had many things similar in one another, and both also respected their differences as well.
All-in-all, it took Deyn and McAndrew no time to walk down the aisle.
Agyness Deyn Married Joel McAndrew – Wedding
It wasn’t even a year since Deyn and McAndrew began dating each other when he popped the question to his beautiful girlfriend.
As Deyn loved her partner very much, she said yes to marry him, and so the wedding plans began.
On August 28, 2016, Agyness Deyn and Joel McAndrew married each other at the church in Brooklyn Heights, New York City.
Both husband and wife went with a slightly colorful theme for their wedding attire.
Deyn wore a very beautiful bridal dress made by English designer Molly Goddard. Goddard aptly understood Deyn’s requirements and added colors like Pink, Turquoise to the dress.
The result was a very beautiful looking pale pink gown with ruffled sleeves. Towards the bottom, Agyness went with a very bright and beautiful looking Blue/Turquoise heels.
On the other hand, the groom had some fun with color himself.
McAndrew went with a very bold looking white suit and trousers with a very light blue shirt. For the tie, he went with a shade of blue but a little darker.
Towards the chest area, he wore a bright pink flower and a flashy sky-blue pocket square that almost matched with Deyn’s footwear.
Talking about footwear, Joel went with dark-colored slip-on loafers while obviously wearing a pair of no-show socks inside.
Who Is Husband Joel McAndrew?
While we already know about Agyness, it’s her husband who does not share the same glamourous industry spotlight.
But that does not mean he’s underachieving by any means. On the contrary, Joel is kind of a big shot in finances.
Born in the United States, Joel went to Carnegie Mellon University in Pennsylvania for education.
In 2005, McAndrew began working as an Investor Relations Associate at The D.E. Shaw Group.
Joel worked there for almost four years before leaving the firm to join INVESTCORP as an Associate Vice President in 2010.
Joel stayed with INVESTCORP for just more than a year. In August of 2011, Joel joined Gotham Asset Management, LLC, as Head of Institutional Sales and worked there for over seven years.
Most recently, Joel left Gotham Asset Management, LLC, and joined ARP Investments as a partner. He’s currently employed there.
Agyness and Joel’s Children – Name, Gender
After their marriage in 2016, Agyness and Joel have started a family together.
In 2017, Deyn welcomed the couple’s first child together.
However, the worrying part here is that they are yet to formally let everyone know about the birth of their first child.
Even three years after the birth of their first child, Deyn and McAndrew have not announced their baby’s name or gender.
This gets even more frustrating for the couple’s fans as Deyn is pregnant for the second time.
This time again, Deyn has not bothered to let anyone know about the baby’s gender or the name they have in mind for the baby.
