Alan’s personal life has become a topic of interest for many years as he has remained in the limelight ever since his career started. He has been married twice in his life. After the VJ’s first marriage failed, he got married to Elizabeth Bradley Hunter.
So, without further ado, let’s know about Alan Hunter’s wife and their love life.
Met At A Fundraiser
As mentioned earlier, Alan Hunter shares a blissful marital life with Elizabeth Bradley Hunter. The couple had their first contact in 2005 when Elizabeth A. Bradley decided to leave her job of eight years in Manhattan, New York as a director of development at Andrew Lauren Productions. After moving to Alabama, she had her relatives send out feelers to everyone they knew in the filmmaking community there.
Then, when Alan Hunter’s wife Elizabeth found the way to contact him, she sent him an e-mail message saying he was her cousin’s best friend’s mother’s little sister’s high school boyfriend and asked him to help start a screenwriting workshop. A few weeks later, she attended the fund-raiser for a film festival that he had helped create.
Alan was charmed by his wife’s cosmopolitan air while she was impressed with his deliberate nature and social intuition. They began talking and did not stop and eventually planned on going on a date.
Another Fund-Raiser Program Became Their First Date
After their first introduction, Elizabeth and Alan became friends and their feelings grew stronger. The inseparable pair went on their first date at another fund-raiser where he was the auctioneer. As their relationship became more serious, Alan Hunter’s then-girlfriend called home with the news.
Moreover, Alan’s partner let the lease of her Manhattan apartment expire and moved in with him. Then, during a trip to New York in November 2006, Alan popped the question after they dined at Café des Artistes. She accepted the proposal, and it reportedly began to rain.
On July 7, 2007, the lovebirds walked down the aisle at the First United Methodist Church. At the time of their wedding too, it was raining. Nevertheless, nearly 100 guests attended their marriage ceremony.
Since then, the couple, with an age gap of 18 years, has been living a wonderful life together and enjoying their time as married pair. In addition, their love is still going strong.
