Are they divorced? Who is Gary? What is his job? Read all that we know about him here in this short bio.
Meet Gary Farmer, Wanelda Farmer Husband
Gary Farmer and Wanelda Farmer went on their first date on New Year’s Day 2018. The couple then married on 28 February 2019, a little over a year after they started seeing each other.
Stating a few details about their wedding night, Wanelda posted on her Facebook in 2020, “A year ago on this night I went to Michaels to find a dress to get married in. My THIRD marriage at that. my mom and Breezy went with me … it was a last-minute wedding but WOW it turned out more than perfect. Nothing will ever take that night from me… I married Gary in my grandma’s barn… a barn a grew up in.. so many memories were made in that barn… as a child and as an adult. ”
She added, “Tomorrow is our one-year anniversary… my grandma entered a nursing home this week. I want so badly to be in WV with my family to help and be there for my mommy but I grew up and moved away. The last few weeks have been hard for my family in WV. I hate that I can’t be there every day but life’s about changing and nothing EVER stays the same. That’s a song actually… and music is healing.”
Wanelda concluded, “I found a dress. I felt beautiful in it. It was raining and cold but none of that mattered. I knew Gary would be the one I would be buried beside of I knew it the day I met him. Our life has been TOTAL CHAOS with sickness and drama but somewhere along the way I grew up and realized that life isn’t perfect it’s what you make of it… and I’m gonna make the best of it. Happy anniversary Gary!! Despite our flaws, we are killing it and I wouldn’t want anyone else beside me right now.“
For Wanelda, it is her third marriage. Gary also had two broken marriages before he met Wanelda.
Wanelda published a lengthy TikTok around the middle of July 2023. She seized the opportunity to discuss her marriage to Gary, which was said to be in trouble at the time. Many thought that Gary’s drinking problem caused their tough time, or even that Gary had an affair with Wanelda when they were dating. Wanelda was hesitant to share the whole story, but she did wish to dispel some of the more lewd rumors about her marriage.
“I feel like there’s a lot of assumptions being made and a lot of conclusions being drawn that aren’t true and I hate for somebody to think something that isn’t true,” Wanelda explained in her TikTok.
First and foremost, she stated that Gary has no known alcohol-related concerns. No one has also cheated on the other party. Wanelda even remarked that she and Gary are “very civil” at the moment. And also, they apparently talk to each other on a daily basis.
She did, however, make reference to divorce in a manner that implied she and Gary were divorcing.
“Divorce can be nasty, separation can be nasty, break-ups can be nasty,” Wanelda admitted. Later on, she added, “Nobody knows what’s really went on in my home or what I’ve been through.”
Wanelda refused to go into further detail, claiming that “some things don’t need to be told.” She only explained on TikTok that there was no “big event” that precipitated their breakup. “Sometimes, things just don’t work out,” she relayed. “When you meet someone, I think people put on a different facade to a certain extent. And over time, that facade kind of drifts away and you go back to who you really are, who you are naturally. And that’s not always the person the other one fell in love with.”
Wanelda has since refrained from discussing the “dirty details” of their divorce, but she did note that their children have supported various parents throughout the ordeal. She did, however, unintentionally express some bitterness over the setback. In her TikTok, she stated, “For a woman to pick up and leave a home that she funded and leave 90 percent of her belongings there, that says a lot.”
While Wanelda has still stated “married” as her relationship status, Gary has changed it to “single.”
Gary and Wanelda were parents to six children; Maverick who has autism turned 9 on 2 October 2022. Abigail KayLynn Triplett her first-born daughter turned 23 in December 2022. Natalie turned 13 in January 2023. Meanwhile, Jakob turned 16 in October 2022. Brianna Reese turned 18 in May 2023.
In 2020, Wanelda wrote of her children, “Jakob Farmer…. towering over me by 5” now. Abigail and Breezy have me by a couple of inches as well…. my only hope is Maggie. She’s gonna be a shorty like her momma!!!.”
