Here comes a little ditty ’bout John and Meg. Now that we’ve gotten that out of the way, we should remind you all that 67-year-old musician John Mellencamp and 57-year-old actress (and America’s former sweetheart) Meg Ryan will soon be getting married. And two families will join together to create one big blended family.
John has already been married three times in his life. He was hitched to Priscilla Esterline from 1970 to 1981. Once that wrapped up, John said “I do” that same year to Victoria Granucci in a marriage that lasted eight years. And in 1992, John tied the knot with Elaine Irwin but they later divorced in 2011. During his three marriages, John welcomed five Mellencamp kids.
As for Meg, she’s only been married once before to actor Dennis Quaid from 1991 until 2001. They had one kid together but Meg later adopted another child as a single mom. So if you’re keeping a tally, that is seven total children between John and Meg. And since these two families will soon be joining forces, we thought it would be a grand idea to learn a bit about every one of John and Meg’s kids. Let’s just say this family won’t be no… small town. That was our last song reference, we promise.
