Chicago Fire’s Taylor Kinney secretly married his wife, Ashley Cruger, in April 2024, after a very private romance.

Who Is Taylor Kinney’s Wife Ashley Cruger?

In March 2022, Taylor posted a photo on Instagram with Ashley for the first time, confirming their relationship. One month later, they stepped out together in public at a charity event in Utah. They have opted to keep most details about their relationship rather private since then, not sharing too many other pictures with each other on Instagram.

Ashley studied journalism at The University of Iowa, per her LinkedIn profile. Most recently, she was listed as a part-time business development manager for Eagle Six Properties. In addition, she is also a model, working with the modeling agency BMG Models.

One thing that is for certain about their relationship is that Ashley is very supportive of her beau. In a since-deleted tweet, she revealed that she appeared in an episode of Chicago Fire in season 11 with Taylor.

“First episode of Chicago Fire aired last night and I got to sneak on it @taylorkiney111,” she wrote in the post, per People.

Another thing that is apparent is that she loves to travel, snapping photos in stunning destinations over the years.
