In reply to her husband’s praise, Susan stated that when she first saw Tucker, there was a bounce when he walked in his khaki pants and ribbon belt. She added that she thought, even then, Tucker seemed so positive and optimistic. Since then, their affair began to bloom, and the now-married pair is together ever since.
In 1991, some months before graduating from Trinity College, Carlson gathered some courage to ask his then-girlfriend, Susan’s dad, Rev. George Andrews II, for her hand in marriage.

Furthermore, after Susan and Tucker tied their marital knot, they went through several tougher times. In 2001, Carlson became almost depressed and felt stranded after losing his job in New Jersey. However, Tucker Carlson’s wife, Susan Andrews, never gave up on him and maintained her faith in him. Eventually, the entire family of Susan and Tucker relocated from New Jersey to Washington DC.
Moreover, Tucker Carlson’s spouse, Susan Andrews, led him to take faith seriously. Both Andrews and Carlson are Episcopalians, and the latter adores the liturgy, though he abhors the ones who run the denomination.
Susan Was Home Alone When Protesters Targeted Their Home In 2018
In 2018, host Tucker Carlson was at his office while his wife, Susan Andrews, was at home alone doing her chores. Their four kids were also out of home at the time. Suddenly, Carlson began receiving strings of text messages hinting there was some tumult happening at his home.
Tucker Carlson immediately called his wife. She was in the kitchen alone preparing dinner, and she heard thumping on the door and screaming. Someone started pushing their front door and actually cracked it. Thinking it was a home invasion, Tucker Carlson’s wife, Susan Andrews, locked herself in the pantry and dialed 911. However, it came up to be a protest rather than a home invasion.
Roughly 20 people from an organization named Smash Racism D.C. called Carlson racist and accused him of promoting hate. They even threatened him from outside his home, though Carlson was not there.
Ever since then, Tucker and Susan went to great lengths to maintain their home address private as their whole family was distraught by the protestors. It might also be the reason why Susan and her kids with Tucker do not seem to have much of a social media presence.
