Gillian Turner is an American journalist and a former Vice President of the global strategy firm, Jones Group International. Since 2014, she has been serving as a news correspondent for the Washington-based FOX News Channel (FNC). In the course of her career, Gillian has also been active in the public sector, working with prominent US legislators and serving under two sitting presidents. Born on the 6th day of September 1982, Turner is a native of Cape Town, South Africa. However, she spent the better part of her early life in New York, United States. Although she has become a prominent media personality, Turner is super secretive when it comes to her personal life and family. Because of this, several speculations have been made about her marital status with many wondering who’s her spouse.
Almost throughout her career journey, people haven’t taken a break from trying to figure out Turner’s love life. At some point, there was absolutely no credible report about the man in her life. However, a breakthrough came in 2015 when she made a tweet that hinted at her love life. In the September 2015 tweet, Gillian Turner wrote about the American author, Elizabeth Gilbert, disclosing that her spouse is fond of Gilbert. About a year later, in August 2016, Gillian made another tweet about her fiance kicking against her quest to adopt two Cocker Spaniels. Her fans took it upon themselves to investigate her activities online in a bid to figure out who the fiance is. Eventually, it was concluded that Alex Kramer is her man.
Alex Kramer Is Gillian Turner’s Husband But Hardly Can Anyone Tell When They Got Married
Although she was born in South Africa, Turner moved to the United States when she was very young. While in the United States, Gillian Turner completed her high school education in New York. Afterwards, she proceeded to Columbia University, where she studied Comparative Politics and graduated with a Bachelors’s degree in 2005. Interestingly, Turner returned to her motherland to pursue an M.Sc at the University of Cape Town, South Africa; focusing on African Security Studies.
Like her, Alex Kramer is originally from South Africa as well. Nonetheless, it is not known if the two met in South Africa or the States. How they met, when they started dating, and other details surrounding the beginning of their relationship have never been shared with the public. Similarly, it was not known for a long time if the two are official life partners. While it had been suggested in some quarters that the journalist was married to Alex Kramer; there were no pieces of evidence that supported that postulation apart from the fact that Gillian Turner referred to Alex as her fiance in a series of tweets over half a decade ago.
Since Gillian’s social media posts continued to show that she was still together with Alex, one can see why it was concluded that they were married. But then, the fact of the matter was that the public didn’t know the status of their relationship other than what was apparent: the two got engaged. Anyway, all of that changed as Gillian Turner ultimately confirmed they were married.
The Journalist Confirmed She Was Married In April 2019
When she got engaged to Alex Kramer remains unknown but the first time she revealed they were engaged was in September 2015 when she tweeted about her fiance’s fondness for author Elizabeth Gilbert. Over a year later, precisely on the 30th of December 2016, the journalist was seen wearing what looked like an engagement ring on her ring finger. Although people were not certain who her partner was at that point, there were reasons to believe it was Alex Kramer. The two are living together, and there were pictures of both of them together littered all over Gillian Turner’s social media pages.
The status of Gillian and Alex’s relationship remained unknown and a subject of speculation until the Fox News correspondent subtly confirmed that they are married. In a 14th of April 2019 Instagram post that had Turner celebrate Alex’s birthday, she described the man as the world’s best husband. Even as the caption confirmed beyond every doubt that the two had been secretly married, it remains unknown when they tied the knot.
Judging by what the journalist shares online, there is no doubt that the couple has been having a happy marriage. They often embark on vacations to South African where they spend time with their relatives in the African country. The two are yet to have kids, at least to the best of our knowledge. Nonetheless, they are parents to several dogs, including a Boston terrier and a Havanese. Gillian Turner regards herself as a “dog mother” and she calls her husband “dog dad”.

For instance, it has been reported in some quarters that her husband is an actor and producer known for projects like Law & Order: Special Victims Unit (1999), The Path (2016), and Greyhound (2020). But then, Alex Kramer the actor is a different person and not the man to whom Gillian is married.
