But who is Gemma’s husband, Gerry Howell? When did they meet? What is the name of their newborn baby and their first child? Find the answers below.
Meet Gemma Whelan Husband, Gerry Howell
Gemma Whelan’s husband Gerry Howell is an English comedian and writer. We do not how they met but Gemma told the Guardian in 2020 that on their first date, Gemma and Gerry went to the British Museum.
And while they were there, Gemma “left into a Japanese tea house”, “all the alarms went off” and they were whisked out by a security guard.
We do not know when they got married but by October 2017, Gemma had already been addressing Gerry as her husband. Although, they celebrate their wedding anniversary on the 13th of May each year.
Their daughter was born in October 2017. Gemma announced the birth of their second child, a son this time, on 2 October 2021. He was probably born either in very early October or late September. So far, we do not have the names of either of their kids.
Currently, Gemma, her husband Gerry, and their two kids live in South London.
Talking about the relationship, Gemma has mentioned in the same aforementioned Guardian interview that she “huffs and puffs” to draw attention to something she does not like. She called that “the most unappealing habit” and wanted instead to communicate what she was not happy about.
She also added that she would like to apologize to her husband about “all the huffing and puffing” because he was probably the most frequent victim of the huffing and puffing.

Gerry has been able to successfully transform his comedy into the stage as well. As a writer, he has written plays like Great Bodies Look Alike, War and Honey, Champagne and Babies, etc. He has written two novels Maybe and The Fantastic Reality of Frederick Goodge.
