Justin Bruening is a television actor who has been in shows such as All My Children and Grey’s Anatomy.
Justin Bruening and his wife, All My Children co-star Alexa Havins, live in Los Angeles with their three children. The pair keeps their private life hidden from the public eye. However, this has rarely deterred people from seeking to learn more about them.
So, let’s have a look at their happy love story and post-kids marriage.
In 2003, the former model met his future wife, Havins, on the set of the television show All My Children. In 2004, they became great friends and began dating. Justin dropped down on one knee and proposed to her on set, shortly after filming Justin’s character, Jamie, proposing to Havins’ character, Babe Carey.
On June 5, 2005, the pair exchanged vows in a private ceremony. They moved to Los Angeles, California, shortly after their marriage.
Bruening and his wife are extremely cautious about appearing in front of the media. Neither of them has a social media account, which is unusual given that most celebrities are eager to keep their fans up to date on their activities via social media.
In 2018, Havins told Soap Central that she didn’t want to share more of her life in public because she already had so much on film.
Every ounce of me — our marriage, everything — was on show while I was on All My Children. It was good to have a few things for myself for a minute, but it wasn’t planned… it’s one part parenthood, and the other half that I’m just old-school.
Justin Bruening has three children
Mr. and Mrs. Bruening welcomed their first daughter, Lexington Grace Bruening, in August 2010 after nearly five years of marriage. Zane Bruening, their second child, was born in 2013, and another daughter was born in 2015.
“Justin and I and our kids are just living a really fulfilled life,” Alexa told Soap Central. “And when I’m not working, I adore every second of being a mother.” They’re fantastic. I always knew I’d enjoy having a family, but it’s even better than I expected.”
Justin Bruening was born on September 24, 1979, in the small Nebraska town of St. Helena. When Bruening was in college in San Diego, casting director Judy Wilson recognized him. He auditioned for the role of JR Chandler, but was subsequently placed in the role of Jamie Martin, where he worked for four years alongside his wife.
Sue Nessel had found Bruening at McDonald’s and he went on to work as a fashion model for Abercrombie & Fitch. Bruening also appeared on One Life to Live as Jamie Martin during a crossover storyline in 2004 and 2005. Bruening was named Daytime’s Hottest Star in Teen People, Us Weekly, Star, and J-14 magazines during his stint as Jamie.
Following roles as a doctor on All My Children and a paramedic on Grey’s Anatomy, Bruening is currently a baseball coach on Netflix’s Sweet Magnolias.
