Rumor has it that Andrea Mitchell and husband Alan Greenspan are getting a divorce. It has been rumored that 68-year-old journalist Mitchell and her former Federal Reserve Chairman Husband, aged 89 are having a divorce.
An insider has revealed that the couple’s long relationship is in peril. The pair who has been married for almost two decades is said to be having a rough time in their marriage. Check out the story below:
Andrea Mitchell and Husband Alan Greenspan getting a divorce
Mitchell was married to Alan Greenspan, who is twenty years senior to her. The American television journalist started dating the founder of Greenspan Associates LLC. back in 1984.
The couple turned their relationship into a marriage in 1997. They were wedded by Supreme Court Justice Ruth Bader Ginsburg.
Despite the age difference and both the husband and wife’s previous unsuccessful attempts on marriage, the couple maintained their relationship far better than anybody else.
There was no hint of bitterness in their happy wedded life. They have been together for almost three decades. Both Mitchell and Greenspan tasted failure in their past in a quest to find the right partner, but they found each other.
The lover duo and their fans alike had thought that finally, they found someone who they were searching for quite a long time.
But now it seems like the couple had had enough of each other. As we said before, the couple is planning to get a divorce. The informant informed that the long-term pair is thinking of breaking their long wedding pretty soon.
Mitchell’s marriage with Greenspan is not the first one. She was married to Gil Jackson previously but their marriage ended in divorce during the mid-1970s.
Talking about her present husband, he too had several relations in the past. He was married before Mitchell tied the knot with him. Greenspan married an artist called Joan Mitchell in 1952 but it ended in annulment within a year of their marriage.
The chairman later dated newsperson Barbara Walters during the late 70s. He then started a fling with Mitchell. The couple dated for more than a year and they finally decided to get hitched in 1997.
Reason Behind Andrea Mitchell and Alan Greenspan’s Divorce
So what happened between these lovebirds that dragged them to the end of their marriage? The informant has all the answers.
It has been said that the NBC political correspondent, Mitchell wants to have children. But unfortunately, she can’t because she is already 68. While her husband who is twenty years older than her is quite happy to be without kids, Mitchell is desperate to have one.
The source revealed that the reporter and commentator for NBC had tried to convince her husband several times in the past to adopt kids but Greenspan, who is on the way to his 90s, disagreed with her. The insider added,
“Greenspan is too old to raise kids.”
So now, due to the differences, the couple has decided to cut the cord that has been connecting them together. Mitchell, who has survived breast cancer, is an independent woman.
She is a well-respected news anchor in the US. She has an estimated net worth of $5 million and receives $750,000 as her annual salary. So the source says it won’t be a problem for a woman like her to adopt and raise a kid as a single mother.
