On the long list of people who are famous as a result of their partner’s fame is Susan Andrews, the wife of American conservative journalist Tucker Carlson. Not very much is known about Susan who has been married to the host of the Fox News nightly political talk show, Tucker Carlson Tonight, for over 25 years. The couple met in high school where Susan’s father, Rev. George E. Andrews II, was the headmaster at that time. You can bet it sure required a lot of guts to date the headmaster’s daughter but Carlson managed to ask her out and since then, the relationship that started when they were fifteen-year-olds has blossomed to something that looks to remain till death does them part.
What We Know About Susan Andrews and Her Family
Susan Andrews was born in 1969, the same year her husband was also welcomed to the world. Aside from the fact that her father is Rev. George E. Andrews II, the headmaster of St. George’s School from 1984 to 1988 when his daughter was there, not much is known about Susan, including the identity of her mother, where she raised, and other related facts about her childhood.
Later on in life, however, it is reported that Susan worked at places like St. Patrick, FCPS, At Your Service Hospitality Management LLC. In 1991, she married her husband and has since gone ahead to welcome four children to the world. They include daughters Dorothy, Lillie, and Hope, and son Buckley.
The Carlson family appears to be a very happy one as Susan and Tucker’s married life continues to blossom. Together, all five members of the family live in a farmhouse in Alexandria, Virginia from the early 1900s which they bought and renovated.
