Relationship Status

Andrea was married to Gil Jackson, but they divorced in 1970. Jackson and Andrea, on the other hand, had no children together.

Later that year, in 1997, she married Alan Greenspan, an American economist who was the Chairman of the Federal Reserve of the United States at the time (1987-2006). Greenspan now works as a private advisor and consults for businesses through his company, Greenspan Associates LLC.

The wedding was officiated at the Inn at Little Washington by Supreme Court Associate Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.

They’ve been married for 24 years, but their love and relationship are as strong as any adolescent in their twenties. They’ve done a good job of keeping their marriage together, and as far as we know, they’re still going strong.

Alan Greenspan, aged 94, and Andrea Mitchell, 74, have a 20-year age difference on average. Despite their large age difference, the couple has managed to preserve a little happy family life.

Despite their long marriage, they have no children of their own, nor have they adopted any, with the exception of Andreas’ goddaughter.

According to a source, there were whispers that the couple might split since Andrea desired children and Alan did not. However, because the pair hasn’t spoken about it, it’s possible that the rumors are false.

Joan Mitchell’s Husband Was Previously Married

Andrea isn’t the only one who has been married previously. Alan Greenspan had been married before he met Andrea.

Alan married a woman called Joan Mitchell in 1952, but they divorced after less than a year. Alan and Andrea have no records for children from prior marriages.
