Martyn Eaden was never a huge fan of fame and media attention. While he found himself in the center of both during his marriage to Chrissy Metz, he has chosen a quiet life for himself after the divorce. While Martyn has kept his cards close to his chest, his ex-wife Chrissy tells a different story. Chrissy first rose to fame following her appearances as Kate Pearson in the television series This Is Us (2016–2020). Not only was Chrissy’s role critically acclaimed, but it also earned her nominations for a Primetime Emmy Award and two Golden Globe Awards. In this article, we will take the spotlight away from Chrissy and put it on her ex-husband, Martyn Eaden.
Not much to say:
Martyn Eaden has enjoyed a relatively private life. Born and raised in Britain, Martyn worked as a copywriter during his early years and later progressed to screenplay writings. However, Martyn never attracted public attention for his work and enjoyed a relatively quiet life until he began dating Chrissy Metz.
Marriage and Divorce:
Metz and Martyn began dating sometime around the early 2000s. The pair never made things known and enjoyed a relatively private life. The pair tied the knot in 2008 and were relatively unknown. However, after Metz’s popularity shot up after a stellar appearance in This Is Us, the pair could no longer keep things under wrap. In the next few years, the pair started seeing cracks in their marriage and could no longer hold things. So, in 2015, Metz filed for divorce from Martyn citing irreconcilable differences. The divorce was finalized the same year and the pair went their different ways. While the pair cited irreconcilable differences as the major reason for their divorce, many fans speculated that it was Metz’s growing fame that took a toll on the pair’s marriage.
Life after divorce:
Following the divorce, Martyn erased all traces of himself from mainstream media and returned to his private life. Chrissy, on the other hand, continued to gather recognition and fame. She has remained single after her divorce from Martyn and is more preoccupied with her career.
