Steve and his wife even kept Mary’s name hidden for a long time after she was born. Talking to the New York Post in February 2013, a close friend of the comedian said Steve is the kind of celebrity that does not play with his privacy, but in actual fact, he worked really hard to become a father and is thrilled with the new addition to his family.

Steve finally revealed his daughter’s name on the set of David Letterman’s show when he jokingly said they considered a lot of less conventional names.

Mary Martin’s mother, Anne Stringfield, works for the media industry, and for many years, she has been under the payroll of The New Yorker, where she started to work as a fact-checker. This bit of information about Anne came from Steve’s Wiki page.

In fact, many have speculated that the duo may have had something to do with each other at The New Yorker since the comedian also wrote for the publication during the 1990s, and they are not far from the truth. Important to note that Anne also works for the fashion media, Vogue.

Unlike her celebrity husband, Anne’s personal details are not readily available. We were only told that she was born in 1972, but facts like her birthday and month have remained elusive to date. Also, she has never mentioned her family in the public space.

Mary’s Parents were Married Before they Had Her

Steve and Anne were already five years into their union before they welcomed their only daughter.

It was while Mary Martin’s mother was working as a fact-checker with The New Yorker that he got acquainted with Steve. Her work as a fact checker involved calling freelance writers of the media house to double-check facts, and Steve was one of the people she was constantly calling.

According to what the celebrated comedian cum actor told AARP magazine in 2017, they were talking for more than one year before getting to meet each other in person. When they finally met, the duo dated for three years before he asked for her hand in marriage.

Mary Martin’s parents eventually tied the knot on July 28th, 2007, in his Los Angeles Californian home. The wedding had a stellar guest list comprising the likes of Bob Kerrey (a Nebraska Senator), who officiated at the wedding, Lorne Michaels (Saturday Night Live creator); who acted as the best man, and 75 other celebrities, including Tom Hanks, Carl Reiner, Eugene Levy, and Diane Keaton.

The guests were never told it was a solemnization of holy matrimony until Steve appeared in an Inspector Closeau mustache with his bride donned out in a Vera Wang gown

The couple have been married for over 16 years, and according to Steve, he is very happy with his little family, crediting Anne for their loved-up family and low-keyed lifestyle. Steve said Ann is very kind, and that is counted among the vital qualities a human being can have.

Mary Martin’s Relationship with Parents

Mary Martin has a great relationship with both parents. Though Steve and Anne are not big on displaying their family on social media and public spaces, it is glaring that the Martin household is a close-knit one.

According to the American actor and comedian, he became a father at the perfect time, exactly when he felt he would be able to be a good father figure. Talking further, Steve said if he had become a father earlier, it would have affected his career growth. But now that he is well established in his professional life, the multi-talented entertainer said he is very forthcoming with Mary. Father and daughter have all the time in the world to just hang around and play in their home, and Steve thinks it is fantastic.

Even though Anne is not the type that comes to the public space with stories of her family life, the mother of one is equally enjoying life with her husband and only child.

She is not on any Career Path yet

Mary is yet to show interest in any career paths, however, the youngster lives a private life shielded by her parents. Thus, it would be rather difficult to know when she does start experimenting with something.
