Paul Qualley At a Glance
His marriage with Andie MacDowell
As earlier mentioned, Paul Qualley became quite famous after he got married to Hollywood actress and fashion model Andie MacDowell. The couple who would later tie the knots in 1986 met while they were posing for Gap ads, got acquainted, courted for a couple of years before finally walking down the aisle.
However, after being together for 13-years, they called it quits in 1999. Their separation was strange and came as a shock to many because just months beforehand, MacDowell was gushing about their happiness and praising Paul for being a house husband, a ‘Super Mom’ who cooked and cared for their then young children. Whatever went wrong, the couple never got to say.
Paul Qualley and Andie MacDowell’s 13-year union produced three children (a son named Justin and two daughters named Rainey and Sarah). Justin Qualley was born in 1986 followed by Rainey Qualley in 1990, and then Sarah Margaret Qualley came in 1994.
Despite being separated, custody of the children had never been an issue for the former couple as both of them are responsible for their children. However, it was with their mother that they grew up with first in Montana before she later moved to Asheville in North Carolina.
Margaret and Rainey have both stolen from the genetic blessedness of their parents as well as the talent of their mother. Rainey is an actress and a singer while her sister also acts and dances. The mother-daughter trio once featured on the cover of “Town and Country” as the fantastic three.
On his part, Justin now works in Montana in real estate.
Paul Qualley’s relationship life after the divorce
Following the divorce, the duo went their separate ways to build new relationships. For Andie, she got married to businessman Rhett Hartzog in 2001. Unfortunately for her, this marriage was not to last a long time as by 2004, it had ended in a divorce. Not done, she started another relationship with Kevin Geagan which seemed as though it would go far. In 2006, they were engaged but nothing has come out of it.
Unlike MacDowell, Paul is reportedly still single, although this claim has not been confirmed. Sources say he has been off the dating scene since the divorce. There are others who claim he hasn’t gotten over his divorce from Andie.
This is what their children think about their divorce
Their outspoken daughter, Margaret has admitted that her mom’s choice of men sometimes shocked her, she said she was hoping her parents would get back after their divorce in 1999 but her mom’s choice of Dennis Quaid at the time actually left her stunned.
Many years since they parted ways, it’s now more unlikely than ever, that Paul and his Golden-Globe winning ex-wife are going to be back together.
