Tracey Lynne Turner is an American movie producer who happens to have gotten married to Shaun Cassidy in 2004. If the name Cassidy rings a bell, then it is because you might know him from any of the numerous works he has featured in. As a singer, you might know him for the hit singles, ‘Morning Girl’, ‘That’s Rock and Roll’ (1976), ‘Hey Deanie’ (1977), and his first Billboard No. 1 hit single, ‘Da Doo Ron Ron’. He also played a leading role in the epic popular television show, The Hardy Boys/Nancy Drew Mysteries.
After a successful music career that spawned two platinum-selling albums, Cassidy has also recorded tremendous success as a television writer and has penned down numerous shows, including American Gothic (1995-1996), Invasion (2005-2006), and most recently NBC’s New Amsterdam (2018-present).
The man that Tracey met and married however was not the teenage music/movie idol from the ’70s but the mature television screenwriter and producer of the late nineties to early 2000s. The couple have been together for the past seventeen years and they have four lovely kids.
Tracey Lynne Turner Was Born 46 Years Ago
Tracey Lynne Turner was born on the 13th of March, 1975 in the United States. She is of Caucasian descent. Unfortunately, further inquiries about any other personal information about her have been very unfruitful. In fact, there is no known record of her parents, siblings, or place of birth. We also do not know which of the school of arts she attended; it’s almost like she is a social media ghost.
Her husband, however, satisfied a little of the public’s curiosity about his wife by confirming that Tracey does everything humanly possible to stay out of the limelight and avoids publicity of any kind. This might be why she prefers to keep her private information away from the public eye – in order not to draw unwanted attention to herself.
How Did Tracey Meet Her Husband Shaun Cassidy?
Tracey Lynne Turner and her famous husband have been tight-lipped about when, how, and where they met each other. It is common knowledge though that they got hitched just one year after Cassidy’s second 8-year marriage to actress Susan Diol broke down. It is rather interesting to note that Cassidy’s second ex-wife got remarried that same year to Andy Cardiff.
As for Tracey and Shaun, it is very likely that they met on some television set (as they are both TV producers) but remained good friends until they got married. Nevertheless, it doesn’t seem to matter where and how they met as they have remained together ever since. It looks like things are going to remain that way for a long time.
The Couple Have Been Married For Close To Two Decades
The celebrity couple tied the nuptial knot on the 28th of August, 2004, somewhere in Los Angeles. When they exchanged their vows, Tracey was 29 years old while Shaun – twice-divorced and already a dad at 46. The wedding was kept very low-key but you can still view the lovely photos of the new couple available all over the internet.
Since their marriage sixteen years ago, there has been no scandal involving either of them and they have managed to protect their family’s privacy, which is commendable as Cassidy himself comes from a family of famous people. The happy couple makes a lot of public appearances together but doesn’t seem to be bothered by the paparazzi so much which means Cassidy must have learned a thing or two about hiding in plain sight. Tracey is obviously having the time of her life and is completely content with her husband, notwithstanding the 17-year age difference between them, or his past affairs.
Tracey Lynne and Shaun Cassidy Have Four Beautiful Children Together
Shaun Cassidy has fathered a total of eight children. The first set of four came from his previous marriages while the last four, neatly split into two boys and two girls, are products of his marriage to his third wife, Tracey Lynne. Caleb Cassidy was welcomed as the first addition to the family of Tracy and Shaun in March 2005 – one year after his parents got married.
Their second son, Roan Howard Cassidy, came just one year after his big brother on 23 September 2006. Their last two children are both girls named Lila Tracey Cassidy and Mairin Cassidy. Lisa was born in December 2008 and her younger sister, Mairin, followed three years later in June 2011. Together, Shaun and his family live in their 2-acre mansion in Los Angeles.
Meanwhile, through his marriage to his first wife, model, and former Playboy playmate Ann Pennington, Shaun Cassidy had his first three children. They include two of his biological children named Caitlin and Jake Cassidy, and one adopted daughter named Jessica. Caitlin was born in 1981 while Jake was born in 1985. Jessica was welcomed in 1970. His second marriage to actress Susan Diol also produced a daughter named Juliet who was born in 1998.
Shaun Cassidy’s Wife Has Had a Very Illustrious But Brief Career
Tracey Lynne has had moderate success as a Hollywood producer. She is mainly recognized for her work in two popular television shows. The first one is the 2000 crime comedy-drama series, Cover Me: Based on the True Life of an FBI Family. The show follows the true-life story of FBI agent Danny Arno who made a risky decision to involve his family in his job. The show ran for just one season and comprised 25 episodes released weekly from the 5th of March, 2000 till the 25th of March, 2001 on the NBC-owned American cable channel, USA Television.
The second work that Tracey is famous for is the American daytime talk show, ‘The Oprah Winfrey Show’; a show that aired for 25 seasons from 8 September 1986 to 25 May 2011. For this show, Tracey Lynne worked hand in hand with Oprah herself, making the show into what later became one of TV Guide’s Greatest TV Shows of All Time. The show was also the highest-rated daytime talk show in American television history and won over 45 Daytime Emmy Awards before the year 2000.
Even if Tracey’s list of achievements is not as extensive as her husband’s, we can still see that she has created a most remarkable career for herself with the little she has done. Hopefully, we get to see another Tracey Lynne Turner-produced television show as soon as possible because it is pretty obvious that this woman knows her craft.
