If you are a die-hard enthusiast for Fox News like the current POTUS, then the name Tucker Carlson should ring a bell. While many know him as a conservative journalist and political commentator, very little known about his personal life and marriage to his wife, Susan Andrews. His career overshadows her on most occasions, and that’s what we are here to highlight. Here are five facts about Tucker Carlson’s wife Susan Andrews you may or may not be aware of.
Tucker Carlson And Wife Susan Andrews are high school Sweethearts.
In most interviews that Carlson has done usually entails his original love story. Also, as part of his wiki-bio, the journalist shed light into his alma mater having gone to St. George’s School in Middletown, Rhode Island.
What most people don’t know is that it was a boarding school and it was during this time that he met the current love of his life. Hearing them talk about how they first laid eyes upon each other can melt a lovesick heart. He described her as the cutest 10th grader in America whereas Tucker Carlson’s wife had a more vivid description about him.
She distinctively recalls his walking style and attire saying,
“There was a bounce in his walk, he was in his khaki pants and ribbon belt, and I thought, even then, he seemed so optimistic and positive…”
Mrs. Carlson’s dad was the school’s headmaster.
The thought that since they were both in boarding could have meant that they spent a lot of time together right? While this may be true, the two lovebirds had their love suppressed with Tucker having it rougher since he was dating the headmaster’s daughter.
What made it worse is that she was the daughter to Rev. George E. Andrews II which means a strict religious background. Coupled with that also meant that she had to uphold the family’s name with high esteem.
However, Tucker Carlson and Wife Susan Andrews managed to figure it all out and date even up to college under The Rev.’s radar. He finally asked for her hand in marriage six months before his graduation. There was no way the Rev. could have turned down his blessings on making her Tucker Carlson’s wife.
Tucker Carlson’s Wife Susan Andrews is a mother of four kids.
Being Tucker Carlson’s wife had its fair share of blessings like living in the spotlight. However, it also demanded her of some wife and motherly duties. After their joyous wedding ceremony held in 1991, the couple decided on starting their own family.
This decision followed a series of successful pregnancies with Susan giving birth to four babies. The couple share three daughters and a son. They go by the names, Dorothy, Lillie, Hopie, and Buckley Carlson – not necessarily in their order from eldest to youngest.
The loving couple raises their beautiful family in a family home which cost them $2.04 million during their move in 2017. They live in District Kent neighborhood which is located in Washington D.C.
Family means everything to her.
If you thought that the only hiccup to plague their marriage was her father, think again. In 2016, the Fox correspondent got slapped with a rape lawsuit by a woman named Kimberly from Indiana. The incident allegedly occurred at a Kentucky pizza Inn.
The media went wild with the story running ridiculous stories of the looming divorce between the couple. The Fox journalist denied these claims with his wife backing him up 100 percent on the matter. If that isn’t love, then I don’t know what is. She believed there was no way he was going to throw away more than two decades of their life together.
It turned out she was right as the woman, Kimberly, retracted her accusations and apologized basing it all on confusion. Reports indicate that she was a patient with a case of mental disorder
Tucker Carlson’s wife is a board member of the school, where her dad got accused of not reporting a sexual harassment scandal.
Concerned parties and victims of the sexual assault done on them weren’t pleased with the fact that the culprit, a choirmaster at the school walked away unscathed. Sure he was fired for the incident but what angered them the most was the fact that his letter of recommendation was positive when it should have gotten tarnished.
While the investigation’s findings were reported more than a decade later after Rev. Andrews had left St. Georges, his lawyer was quick to state that he hadn’t broken any laws. Hence, there were no charges brought forth. However, he regrets that he could have done more to appease the affiliated victims but sadly did not. Susan Andrews still holds a position as one of the school’s board members.
