Stephanie Reddick is the second wife of Lance Reddick, the late actor, whom he met while working at Guthrie Theater, Minneapolis, in 1999. The love birds got married in 2011 and enjoyed 12 blissful years of marriage before Reddick’s death in March 2023.
Stephanie Reddick was born sometime in 1971, and she is currently 52 years old. Her passion for creative arts brought her into contact with her husband, and they both shared that passion for so many years together. She was stepmother to Lance’s two children from his first wife, Suzanne Yvonne. She was with him till he died of natural causes in March 2023 and grieved the loss.
Meet Lance Reddick’s Second Wife
Lance Reddick’s wife, Stephanie Reddick, is his second wife and widow, whom he left behind following his sudden death on March 17, 2023. Stephanie was born on June 7, 1962, in Minneapolis, Minnesota, in the United States of America. Not much is known about her family, siblings, and early childhood, as she grew up to be a very modest and humble person who respects and jealously guards her private life.
She hardly grants any interviews and is only seen at public events she attended with her husband, Lance Reddick. She has never talked about her educational background, but we figure that it had something to do with either creative arts or set creation/production.
She loved her husband till the day of his sudden passing and was overwhelmed with the outpouring of love and good wishes from all those who knew her husband when he died.
Stephanie Day and Lance Reddick Met in the Theater
Lance Reddick’s wife, Stephanie, used to work at the Guthrie Theater in Minneapolis, Minnesota, during the 1990s, and it was while she was working there that she met Lance Reddick sometime in 1999. Lance was coincidentally featured in a stage play at the theater where she worked. The pair must have had a one-of-a-kind first impression about each other as they got to know each other better, and a relationship soon developed from then on.
Lance Reddick had been divorced from his first wife just a few years earlier. He was still having some challenges managing his co-parenting responsibilities as well as his very tight schedule of being an actor.
Luckily he did not have to search so far for love as he met a very lovely person in Stephanie while on the job. Lance and Stephanie reportedly dated for a very long time before they decided to take their relationship to the next level and make it a permanent one.
She Became Lance Reddick’s Wife In 2011
Stephanie Day decided to get married to her man and become Lance Reddick’s wife sometime in 2011 – which was coincidentally 12 years since the time they first met in Minnesota in the United States of America. Minnesota has a very sentimental value to both Stephanie and Lance – which is the main reason why they decided to get married in this very important state where they first met.
Stephanie is reported to have decided to have a very conservative wedding, and she also chose a very conservative wedding gown that she saw online for just $ 250 – which also included its shipping costs. She asked Lance to pick up the dress at the post office and deliver it to her.
She also gave Lance two conditions for the wedding to go on – the first was that they should both agree that all their guests must have fun at the event, and the second condition was that he would not see her in her wedding dress till she walks down the aisle in it.
They had both their wedding and the reception at the Bar Lurcat in Minneapolis, Minnesota – a venue Stephanie specifically chose for her love for its ambiance, and she even had to postpone her wedding for a few weeks till the preferred venue became available.
While others crave a show-stopping wedding day, all Stephanie wanted was a low-key wedding where all their friends had fun. She stated that the best part of the wedding for her was when her mother saw her in her wedding dress for the first time and began to cry.
Does Lance Reddick Have Children With Stephanie?
Stephanie and Lance Reddick did not have any biological children of their own together for the entire duration of their union – which lasted for 12 years till the date of his death, but Stephanie took the two children – Yvonne Nicole and Christopher Alexander, that Lance had with his first wife as her own, and made a very happy family for the group. Her husband loved her for this and showered praise on her at every opportunity that he had while he was alive.
What Does Lance Reddick’s Wife Do For A Living?
At the time Stephanie and Lance met, she worked on the set at the Guthrie Theater, and over the years, it is not clear if her career path changed and what she does for a living right now. She is still in her early 50s and nowhere near retirement age yet.
However, we do not know if she is still working with any theater or if she was a housewife to her late husband, Lance Reddick. The fact that she is also a very private person who does not divulge any information about her private life to the media does not help at all.
Meet Lance Reddick’s First Wife
Lance Reddick’s first Wife is Suzanne Yvonne Reddick (nee Louis). She is the mother of his two lovely kids – Yvonne Nicole Reddick and Christopher Alexander Reddick. She was born on September 17, 1961, in Cleveland, Ohio, in the United States of America. No information is available about her parents, siblings, or the type of family upbringing that she had while growing up, as none of her parents were celebrities or very influential people.
Yvonne went to Lexington High School in Lexington, Massachusetts, in the United States, and proceeded to the Parsons School of Design in New York City. After that, she went to the New York College of Medicine, where she graduated and became a certified midwife – it is not clear if she worked as a midwife for some time before she switched to another career that she has so much love and passion for.
Yvonne worked for Avon Products for several years as a jewelry designer for the global brand. She got married to Lance Reddick sometime in 1986, having met and dated the actor and musician for some years.
She and Lance were divorced after having their two children, and she was reported to have had another daughter from someone else. Sadly, Yvonne died on November 3, 2011, after she did not wake up from a coma that was a result of the heart attack that she had suffered just a few weeks earlier.
