If you love consuming comedy content on YouTube then you might be familiar with Rhett & Link who run a number of comedy and entertainment channels. Both of these individuals form one the best American Comedy Duo which is very rare to be seen on YouTube. We have other entertainers like PewDiePie, Jacksepticeye, etc. but these dudes took comedy to a wholly different level.
Before we discuss the journey of this comedy duo, let’s first dig deep into their personal lives. If you are a fan of Rhett and Link then you might be excited to know more about their family and wives. Are Rhett and Link ever married? Yes, of course, they are!
Rhett and Link Wives
Rhett is married to Jessie Lane. They were in a long-term relationship before they actually tied the knot. They dated for several years and got married on 29th March 2001. Rhett and Jessie were lucky enough to have two children together. The names of their children are Locke McLaughlin and Shepherd McLaughlin.
Link is married to Christy Neil. They dated for a long time during their college days and obviously, true love never fades. Christy studied at Meredith college and Link’s college was also nearby. We don’t know how they met as Link hasn’t disclosed it publicly but their relationship was turned into a marriage in 2000, just before Rhett was married. The Link and Christy now have three children together. One is their lovely daughter Lily and two sons named Charles and Lando.
The Link and Rhett’s wives rarely show up on YouTube channels. They have made few appearances but they never became an integral part of the channel. Another interesting thing about Rhett and Link is that they both are not going to have any more children; guess how we know that? Actually, both of them got a vasectomy back in 2017. Now that’s what you call family planning. In one episode of Good Mythical Morning Show, they shared their experience about this whole process.
Rhett & Links Parents, Siblings
Rhett came from a family of 4 individuals including her mom and dad. His dad is Jim McLaughlin while the name of her mom is Diana McLaughlin. Rhett also has an elder brother Cole McLaughlin. Rhett’s birthplace was originally Georgia but later their family moved to North Carolina.
Link was from North Carolina and his parents were Charles Lincoln and Sue Capps. Unfortunately, Link’s parents divorced when he was only two, and her mother married another man.
Rhett and Link met in North Carolina and they became good friends because both of them were like-minded. Later they came up with the idea of starting a YouTube channel and the rest is history.
