Macklemore is one of the most successful hip-hop artists of his generation. The rapper has several chart-topping singles, as well as albums to his name. He has also won many awards including four Grammys. However, before the fame and the wealth, Macklemore was just an upcoming artist struggling with substance abuse. One person who stood by his side through these trying times is no other than his wife – Tricia Davis. Want to know more about this incredible woman? We have got all the details right here.
Tricia Davis Bio (Age)
Tricia Davis was born on the 29th of January 1984. She is a native of Seattle, Washington. Her ethnicity is Caucasian while her nationality is American. There are not many details about Davis’ early life or family background. There is also a paucity of information with regard to her educational background.
She has however disclosed that she studied nursing at Seattle Pacific University, a private liberal arts university located in Seattle, Washington. After graduating from college, she practiced her profession for some time before meeting her future beau Macklemore.
Husband and Children
Tricia Davis is married to long-time boyfriend, Macklemore (Benjamin Hammon Haggerty). Macklemore was born on the 19th of June 1983 in Seattle, Washington. His father’s name is Bill while his mother’s name is Julie Scott. The rapper also has a brother named Tim. Macklemore fell in love with hip-hop when he was just six and by the age of 15, he was already penning his own lyrics. He subsequently formed a hip-hop group known as Elevated Elements while in high school. Macklemore commenced his career in 2000 but broke into mainstream attention in 2009. This was thanks to his highly fruitful collaboration with Ryan Lewis. The duo’s first album, The Heist, reached number two on the Billboard 200 charts. Two singles from the album, “Can’t Hold Us” and “Thrift Shop” also topped the Billboard hot 100 charts.
Tricia Davis first met her future husband in 2006, through the social networking site – Myspace. At that time, she was working as a nurse while Macklemore was still a struggling artist. He was also dealing with drug addiction and was in rehab for oxytocin abuse. As a result of the unsavory circumstances, her family was against the relationship. Davis, however, shrugged off the criticism and stuck by her man because she saw his potentials. The rapper, in turn, repaid her show of faith by cleaning himself up and focusing on his music.
It has however not been all smooth sailing for the couple. Macklemore has relapsed on a few occasions (2008, 2011, and 2014) but Davis has helped him to get back on his feet. The rapper has now become an advocate against drug abuse and has spoken out about it in some of his songs.
Tricia Davis and her husband have two kids together. They welcomed their first, a daughter named Sloane Ava Simone Haggerty in May 2015. Their second daughter, Colette Koala Haggerty was born three years later in March 2018. Davis and her husband are an unconventional couple; they got engaged in 2013 but did not rush to tie the knot. They rather lived together for several years before formalizing their union on the 27th of June 2015. Their decision to get married was spurred by the Supreme Court decision that legalized same-sex marriage throughout America. The two are big-time supporters of LGBT rights and same-sex marriage.
