Steven Wright: Girlfriend, Marriage, Wife, Children
Steven Wright loves to keep his private life under the wraps. In fact, there is not even a single bit of information on his love life! He has not gotten in a relationship with anyone in the public eye nor have there been rumors about his private affairs.
So, as of now, he is an unmarried man and has not experienced fatherhood. Talking about children, he said, "I don't know how my sister-in-law does it.”
However, he did share an incident with a former girlfriend, way back in 1986. On the Late Night with Seth Meyers, he told about the game between Red Sox and the Mets,
“It gets to be the seventh inning and she congratulates me…and then they lose the game, they lose the World Series. So I broke up with her. If she could jinx the World Series, what else could she jinx?
Every year I call her, she lives in Chicago, and I congratulate her on the Cubs winning the World Series.”
