We’ve seen Marisa Ramirez as “Detective Maria Baez” on Blue Bloods ever since 2013 and after 8 long years, her journey might finally be coming to an end. In Dec 2021, fans started noticing that she was missing from several episodes, and many were convinced that she was leaving Blue Bloods.
So, what was going on in her life? Who is her ex-husband and her partner IRL? Get answers as you scroll down.
Who Is Marisa Ramirez Partner IRL?
The chemistry between Marisa Ramirez and Donnie Wahlberg on Blue Bloods was just too romantic. No wonder, longtime fans of the CBS show were always rooting for them to be partners IRL too.
And if you’re one of the shippers, well! we’ve got some bad news for you.
Donnie is already married. Yes, he has a partner named Jenny McCarthy, whom he first met in 2012 and blended their family in 2014.
Not to rub salt on the wound, but Donnie also recently revealed that his character won’t end up dating Marisa. “Will Estes plays my younger brother on the show and Vanessa Ray plays his now-wife. And they started as partners, and the minute they got together and got married, they don’t have scenes anymore,” Donnie shared.
“So, if they (his and Marisa’s character) start a relationship, we won’t have scenes together and then I’ll miss my friend,” he added.
Outside Blue Bloods, Marisa and Donnie are amazing friends too. The two were often captured on their respective IGs after filming the show or just hanging out.
On Donnie’s 52nd birthday (i.e. on August 17, 2021), Marisa threw him a little party to celebrate, and took it to her IG with a few words of love that wrote, “Grateful every day for you and your light! Sorry, we are working but at least we are laughing!!! Love you, my friend!!”
A month later, on Marisa’s 44th birthday (i.e. on September 15), Donnie replied with a long captioned IG montage of them. A part of which read, “I could not ask for a more incredible, trustworthy, and hilarious friend/partner.”
So, now that we’ve established there was nothing brewing between Marisa and Donnie. Let us also clear that Marisa Ramirez’s partner IRL was unknown before 2021.
There were no traces of Marisa’s partner IRL over her IG @marisachicaramirez then.
