However, the former Nostalgic Chick is presently married but unlike her professional life which is very transparent, the details of her matrimonial life have managed to elude both the media and the general public.
Although Lindsay Ellis’ love life is quite hazy, the news broke on Twitter that she tied the connubial knot with her spouse in June 2018; though no one has been able to pin it down to a particular date, the ceremony which took place in a private wedding was well attended by her close friends, notable among them are Mikey Neumann, Elisa Hansen and many others.
Another aspect of Lindsay’s life that is under lock and key is the identity of her husband, the two are almost approaching a full year in matrimony yet the social media sensation has never let her husband’s identity slip out in public.
