How Long Has Susan Martens Been Will Friedle’s Wife?

Susan Martens and her husband, Will Friedle, have been married for 7 years now. Celebrity marriages are often plagued by public scrutiny that ends up ruining many unions, but Susan and Will seem determined to ace it. The couple got married at Saltwater Farm Vineyard, located in Connecticut, on September 25, 2016, in the presence of only close friends and family. They intentionally kept the media and general public out of it it and opted for a private wedding.

This resolution to keep their relationship away from the public eye is credited for the lasting relationship. From experience shared by many who have been unfortunate in that regard, highly publicized celebrity affairs are most likely to crash. However, a little publicity every now and then won’t be bad, a tactic Martens and her husband have played well.

They have been together longer than 7 years, as it has been reported that they began dating long before the marriage was solemnized. However, they kept the details of their relationship a secret, neatly hidden from the media. It was after the wedding that her movie star took to Twitter with the good news, introducing his fans to Mrs. Squirrels – as he calls his wife.

“Ladies and gentlemen…Mrs. Squirrels…” he captioned a picture of himself and Susan Martens, bringing her to media attention. He had earlier tweeted about the wedding a week prior, saying, “Flying home for my wedding today…yup…sounds weird even when I type it! #CantWait.” “I appreciate all of the love, but I get married this Sunday…still…all of your shout-outs have made us so happy! #YoureTheBest.”

The actor also apologized for not sending out invitations to all his followers. They apparently wanted the wedding to be low-key. However, since their wedding, Susan has posted more about her personal life on Instagram. She usually celebrates their wedding anniversary with lovely pictures and comments. In one of her comments, she called her husband her best friend, and they look happy together, with no rumors or scandals following them.

Does Susan Martens Have Kids?

Susan Martens and Will Friedle have no children together, but they share a daughter Lexi Zavad. There is no information about Lexi’s birth and the identity of his parents, even though it seems she is Suzan Martens’s daughter from a previous relationship.

Martens usually takes to Instagram to celebrate her daughter’s birthday on May 21 each year. Lexi is all grown up and running her own business known as Lexi Zavad Interiores, which she launched in 2020.

The family also has a dog they adore, and Susan has shared pictures of the canine family member on social media. She even admitted that she has just too many pictures of the dog, and she is backing down. The dog gets similar treatment as other family members to get and even has his birthday celebrated with a cake. Needless to say, the pooch is on her profile image.
