The Most Adorable Gift Joanne Tucker Gave to Adam Driver

Adam Driver is one of the most private actors in Hollywood despite the fact that he is one of the most sought-after thespians around. He has crafted a career that anyone would be proud of, with roles in everything from independent dramas to big-budget science-fiction films.

Driver is racking up award nomination after award nomination, and he is poised to become one of the greatest character actors of his generation. Still, Driver avoids social media and doesn’t like to talk about his personal life, which can make nailing down the details of his marriage to Joanne Tucker very difficult.

When did Adam Driver and Joanne Tucker get married?

Adam Driver and Joanne Tucker first met in the early 2000s when they were both students at the prestigious Juilliard School of acting. Driver became known for his intense approach to acting and reportedly intimidated many of his fellow students; however, he and Tucker formed a fast friendship that eventually led to romance. 

Tucker was not only invested in acting and the arts, just like Driver, but she was reportedly able to broaden his horizons when it came to life in the big city. She helped Driver, a former Marine, transition into civilian life and, according to Driver, helped him to develop an appreciation for fine cheese.

It is not known when or how they got engaged, but they did get married in 2013 in a private ceremony with only select family and friends in attendance. Since then, Driver and Tucker have both worked hard on their careers, with Tucker opting for smaller roles in stage and screen productions. She also helps Driver manage the nonprofit charity, Arts in the Armed Forces, that they founded together. 

Do they have any children?

In late 2018, reports started circulating that Adam Driver and Joanne Tucker had welcomed a child together – two years prior. Reports claimed that the ultra-private pair had managed to keep the birth of their child, a son, completely under wraps in order to protect him from the public and press. While neither Driver nor Tucker has spoken openly about their “secret child,” Driver has indirectly referenced his son in several interviews, seemingly by accident. 

Still, Driver and Tucker do take time to attend red-carpet functions together, and Tucker seems very proud of her newly-minted movie-star husband. It is clear that their private relationship certainly works for them, and they haven’t caved to the pressures of Hollywood when it comes to sharing every detail of their lives. 

What sweet gift did Joanne Tucker give to Adam Driver?

Although Driver makes it a point to not discuss his marriage in interviews, he has, on occasion, opened up and shared a few sweet anecdotes. These stories give fans unique insight into his relationship with Tucker and allow fans to understand their dynamics.

For example, in a recent interview, Driver revealed that he and Tucker have a dog that they named Moose. Driver admitted that he had been bothering Tucker “for a while” about getting a dog and that around Halloween, he was feeling particularly antsy, saying “If I had a dog, I’d play with my dog on Halloween. I don’t have to see kids all the time.” It was then that Tucker told Driver to “shut up” because she was getting him a dog for his birthday.

Driver has been photographed with his dog, Moose, several times over the years, and it is clear that he is very fond of his pet. It is reassuring for fans that as Driver continues to grow more popular, he is able to rely on a strong support system at home.
