There isn’t even a single full-sized photo of Martyn Eaden but people still eagerly want to know more about him just because that’s the man who previously married This Is Us actress Chrissy Metz. Her breakout role on the show brought her two Golden Globe Awards and Primetime Emmy Award nominations.
On the other side, Metz’s ex-husband Eaden is a British freelance screenwriter. He has preferred to keep his life totally away from the spotlight. Today, we will try to find a lot more about him.
Who is Chrissy Metz’s ex-husband Martyn Eaden?
Martyn Eaden is a freelance screenwriter from the United Kingdom. He was born in Great Britain and holds British nationality. He, however, maintains a lowkey existence out of the public glare.
Thus, the information about his family, parents, and education is yet to be revealed. He reportedly worked as a writer for a short movie Spurned (2016).
Chrissy Metz and Eaden Eaden Marriage
The couple exchanged their vows on 5th Jan 2008. Martyn and her ex-wife Chrissy dated for over a year before walking down the aisle. Their small wedding ceremony took place in Santa Barbara, California. Their families could not attend the event due to travel costs.
Apparently, Eaden was busy with his writing career while Metz’s career in the show-business was taking off. After her cheerleader role Chunk on My Name is Earl, the actress bought two tickets to visit her family in Florida with her husband.
The two got engaged after a year of Dating
Martyn Eaden first met Chrissy through an internet dating site back in 2006. At the time, Metz lived in Los Angeles while Martyn resided in the English city of Sheffield, South Yorkshire.
The couple kept in touch exchanging emails for several months. Despite the huge distance, it never became a barrier in their initial romance. Her then-boyfriend Eaden went on to visit her in the United States after a few months of their online encounter.
The pair started dating swiftly and after around a year of the relationship, Eaden popped the question to his then-girlfriend to be his wife.
Chrissy and Martyn mutual Separation and Divorce Finalization
It was until they utterly focused on their own career their marriage started falling apart. They never shared their problem with each other which subsequently led to their divorce.
In the meantime, Chrissy began going to Overeating Anonymous meetings to keep herself busy while her husband went on to start hiking with a female co-worker. As both of them were pretty sure it wasn’t working, the two finally separated following a visit from Eaden’s parents in 2013.
Metz asked her husband if he still wanted to be with her. The actress recalled him saying, “Everything is about you. Chrissy, you are as narcissistic as you are selfish. From the beginning, everything has been about you.”
The two later separated on mutual understanding. They finalized their divorce in 2014. The two still remain good friends and they both have a healthy respect for each other.
“We’re just not the right fit. But I love him, and I’m always checking in on him. I am still working on being a better ex-wife than I was a wife.”
They also text regularly.
