Ty Pennington, born as Gary Tygert Burton is a prominent American who wears various hats as an actor, television host, artist, author, carpenter, and philanthropist. Despite doing several stints in life, Pennington only recorded recognizable achievement after landing gigs on home improvement reality show Trading Spaces and playing host to ABC reality series Extreme Makeover: Home Edition. While his role as a carpenter on Trading Spaces (which aired from 2000 – 2003) announced him to America and the world at large, Extreme Makeover (which aired 2003 – 2012) rocketed him to the list of the world’s advocates for volunteerism.

A former model, Pennington’s modelling career got a boost when he was rounding off his last semester in college. As time progressed, he went on to walk down the runway in big cities like Germany, Canada, Italy, Japan and Thailand, where he also lived for some time.

As a successful writer and one of America’s best authors, Ty has published over three books, including a reference book on home improvement and Ty’s Tricks Home Repair Secrets Plus Cheap and Easy Projects to Transform Any Room (Published in 2003). To his credit, Pennington is the brain behind the quarterly magazine ‘Ty Pennington at Home’, which he released in 2007.

Stuffed to the brim, Ty has been working as the spokesperson for Abbott Nutrition and Similac SimplePac (Abbott’s baby formula packaging innovation). He took up the roles in September 2008. Since 2014, he has been the spokesperson for a Chicago-based mortgage lender, Guaranteed Rate.

Ty Pennington’s Biography

Gary Tygert Burton’s parents welcomed him on October 19, 1964, in Atlanta, Georgia, United States. Shortly after Ty’s arrival, his mother (Yvonne Burton) abandoned her husband and left with Ty and his older brother Wynn Burton. Yvonne, who was a school psychologist, continued to raise her boys until she found love in Atlanta and married again. After she married, Ty and Wynn were taken in as adopted sons and had their surname ‘Burton’ changed to Pennington (their step father’s name).

Ty attended the Sprayberry High School in Marietta, Georgia, and then the Kennesaw State University, where he studied art and history. Not comfortable with his degree certificate, he proceeded to study Graph Design at the Art Institute of Atlanta, graduating with a degree afterwards.

Family – Wife, Kids and Gay Vibes

Despite his height in the society, Ty has never shied away from making it known that he’s not legally married and has no plans to do so. For over a decade, he has been in a sincere and worthwhile relationship with his longtime sweetheart, Andrea Bock. Sometime in 2008, Ty told journalists that he’s been dating Bock for eleven years and that they’ve been living together happily.

For the couple, loving each other is the most important thing while getting married and earning an official marriage status isn’t so necessary. Hence, the reason they are loving and living their lives to the fullest. Andre and Ty’s relationship is yet to produce any children. While it appears that they are not ready for kids, their fans are seriously hoping that they have their own kids soon.

Pennington is not gay, he’s straight. In fact, he has never given his fans any reason to question his sexuality. He has a woman he’s living with and both are happy they found each other.
