When Did Adam Driver and Joanne Tucker Meet?
Following his two-year stint in the Marines, the Girls star fell into acting after a harsh mountain biking accident left him with a broken sternum. The incident ended his tenure in the armed forces, but he ended up using those skills at, arguably, the most acclaimed acting school ever, Juilliard.
While attending the esteemed conservatory, he met Joanne, a fellow classmate. “She taught me what Gouda cheese is,” Adam told Broadway.com in 2009 of how the actress helped him adjust to city life from Indiana, where he lived before acting school. “And that you shouldn’t talk with your mouth full and spit on the sidewalk.”
When Did Adam and Joanne Get Married?
In June 2013, the couple — who had been dating since their days in school together — wed in an extremely private ceremony. The nuptials were a destination event, but where, exactly, the special event took place is still a mystery.
Do Adam and Joanne Have Kids?
In February 2017, the Star Wars star hinted that he and his wife had welcomed a baby. “I look at my dog — this sounds so absurd — but it’s not — I don’t know if I can love anything more,” he laughed during a video interview with W magazine. “Like, I have a kid, maybe — and be like, ya know, but the dog!”
However, it wasn’t until October 2019 that the actor confirmed he was a father. He called the act of keeping their child a secret “a military operation” at the time. “My job is to be a spy — to be in public and live life and have experience,” Adam told The New Yorker. “But, when you feel like you’re the focus, it’s really hard to do that.”
In January 2020, the Marriage Story star addressed his child again during his Saturday Night Live opening monologue. “I’m a husband, and a father. It’s in that order though,” he joked. “I’ve been very clear with my son about that. He’s second to everything.”

In 2006, the pair founded Arts in the Armed Forces, a non-profit based in Brooklyn that aims to bring “arts programming to active-duty service members, veterans, military support staff of the United States and their families around the world free of charge.”

“It’s [aim is] to bring thought-provoking theater-based troop entertainment to an audience that wouldn’t normally be associated with theater,” Adam told The Guardian of the project in March 2015.
