Evelyn McGee and her future husband, Stephen Colbert, grew up in the same city and even in the same area, almost two blocks apart. They didn’t meet until 1990 and the two met for the first time at the “Spoleto Festival” and both fell in love instantly. At the time, Stephen Colbert was in a loving relationship with another woman named Ann, but he wasn’t sure he had any commitment to her like her marriage.
Therefore, he decided to leave his relationship and take his other relationship with Evelyn. Around the time they met, Stephen Colbert went to a musical and saw Evelyn in the snack line. When he first met her, he had the call in mind and decided:
“….That is your wife. You are going to marry her… turn around from her and greet her…
And when Colbert finally reached out to Evelyn, the couple discovered that they had a deep connection to each other somewhere in their hearts, which may have been due to the unusual meetings they had in the past. For the first time, they kept looking at each other and for the next two hours straight, they kept talking.
The couple had an instinct that they were meant for each other and shortly after dating for a while, they were married in October 1993. Since or after their marriage, the couple have had three beautiful young children named John ( son), Peter (son) and Madeline (daughter).
