RHONY Jenna Lyons Partner: Wife Or Husband?
So, does Jenna Lyons has a husband or a wife?
The thing is, Jenna had not yet revealed if she had anyone as her partner in life, as of 2022.
Yet, she has chosen not to keep it a secret that she is a mom. She has a son named Beckett, whom she shares with her former husband Vincent Mazeau.
Still, even Beckett, 16-year-old as of October 2022, has not been that much in the public eye. However, he has been seen by her side for a handful of fashion events, including Glamour‘s 2017 “Women of the Year Summit” where they walked the red carpet hand in hand. At 14, he was seen with a large mop of blond hair and was the de facto “head of technology” at Lyons’ enterprise.
Jenna and Vincent, whose editorial work has been seen in publications like Italian Vogue, American Vogue, and W magazine, were married for nine years before they split in 2011. They married in 2002 at The picturesque Gedney Farm In New Marlborough, Massachusetts, and the bride had designed her own wedding dress.
So, the marriage collapsed and amid hammering out who should get custody of their son, Vincent reportedly wanted the family home in the city and a large amount of money. He countered that he held back on his career as an artist to be a house husband and let his wife flourish.
Following this split, Jenna encountered another high-profile relationship with none other than Courtney Crangi, the sister and business partner of jeweler Philip Crangi. This one couple was together for six years, but they broke up in 2017.
