Craig Ferguson’s third marriage to Megan saved him from becoming a late-night host
Craig Ferguson, the late-night talk show presenter, admits that his marriage to Megan Wallace Cunningham, his third wife, got him off the wagon and saved him.
Craig Ferguson, a former late-night talk show host, has openly claimed that his marriage to Megan Wallace Cunningham rescued him from drinking and ruining his life.
It may have taken the American actor three tries to find the right woman, but it’s better late than never, as the adage goes.
Ferguson’s Married Life
In 1983, Ferguson married Anne Hogarth for the first time. The marriage, however, only lasted three years. The comedian’s philandering, alcoholism, and drug use are said to be the cause of the couple’s divorce.
Ferguson was said to be at his worst in the 1980s and early 1990s. He was scarcely able to keep up with the workload. To deal with his career failure, he turned to narcotics. This was a challenging period for the award-winning host, he said.
“I woke up in a storage room over a London bar, covered in my own vomit and pee…I was almost thirty, divorced, and broke. I couldn’t even make it to Scotland to be with my parents at Christmas.”
A few years later, the Scottish-born American comic tried again at love and marriage. In the year 1998, he married Sascha Corwin. Milo, the television host’s kid, is the result of his marriage to Corwin.
Sadly, the couple divorced in 2004.
In 2008, after his second marriage ended in divorce, the comedian married art dealer Cunningham. And it appears that the third time was the charm for Ferguson.
A Life-Saving Union, a Secret Wedding
In Vermont, Ferguson and Cunningham married in a private ceremony. For a long time, they managed to keep their marriage a secret.
Fans were stunned when Ferguson revealed his wedding on his late-night show. Continuing, the host displayed his wedding band as well as a wedding photo with his wife.
“The wedding took place in Vermont, where they have legalized gay civil unions – and I married a woman. It’s not just bling. “
In 2011, the couple welcomed their son Liam three years after marrying.
On The Howard Stern Show in 2017, the father of two revealed that his current wife rescued him from going down the rabbit hole. Cunningham was the main reason for his sobriety, thus he was grateful to her.
He revealed that there was a time when he drank so much that he forgot a lot of what he did during the day, but that was in the past, and because to his wife, he was now a better man.
“Once we got together, that was it. I think it (the third marriage) saved me, to be honest. I think I would have made a fool of myself.”
