Martyn Eaden is a copywriter who is best known as the ex-husband of Chrissy Metz, an American plus-size actress.

He Met His Ex-Wife on a Dating Site

He met his ex-wife on an online dating site in 2006. It was the same year when Chrissy joined the internet dating site. 

In a few months, the couple connected well through emails. They met face-to-face for the first time when he came to Los Angeles to visit her.

In their relationship, it was always him who came to visit her. 

The reason behind this was insufficient funds for Chrissy to make travel to Britain. 

His Married Life and Wife

After dating for a year, he decided to take their relationship to the next level and so proposed to his girlfriend, Chrissy. 

They got married on January 5, 2008, in Santa Barbara, California. Close friends and family attended their wedding ceremony.

How did their marriage land in divorce?

The husband and wife lived a happy and blissful life until January 2013. 

Later in November 2014, Martyn filed for divorce due to some “irreconcilable differences.”

The divorce was finalized on December 11, 2015. The exact reason for their separation is not known. 

However, some believe that it could be the success of Chrissy in her career or compatible issues.

Following the divorce, Chrissy went through drastic weight loss. 

The couple does not share children, and thus there was no fighting for custody. 

His Ex-Wife is a Writer

In 2018, Chrissy published her first book, which was named “This Is Me.” 

The book written by the plus-sized actress is a combination of surprise and inspiration for the readers. 

In the New York Times Best Seller, she described her childhood. She has mentioned how often she used to turn to food for comfort. 

As she grew up, she was unable to express her feelings, and then she turned to food. 

It made her more comfortable than anything else in the world. It was readily available, and it helped to soothe her.

Ariana Grande’s Agent

Martyn Eaden’s ex-wife has worked as Ariana Grande’s agent in the past. 

In an interview with Jimmy Fallon on The Tonight Show starring Jimmy Fallon, Chrissy talked about working as a talent agent for nine years after moving to LA

She took the job because she needed one, and she could not work with the general public. 

She ended up working with the youth department and represented stars like Ariana Grande and Dove Cameron.

Here’s a short clip from the show. 

In the video, she also shares her experience working at McDonald’s, where she started sharpening her acting skills. 

While she was working there, she was asked to go in the back drive, where only she could entertain only a few customers. 

She would then put on accents and talk to customers. 

She shared a funny story from McDonald’s where she asked her manager to go to the bathroom through the speaker. 

Though her manager was passing by and could have just asked her face to face, she said, “Hi, Can I go to the bathroom?” through her little system. 

Metz’s divorce from him allowed her to trust herself more

During an interview with RuPaul, Metz explained how her divorce from him allowed her to trust herself more. 

Stating that one has to be broken down to be built up, she told Rupaul that she had crazy panic attacks on her 30th birthday where she felt like something wasn’t right. 

She was in a marriage, and her husband, whom she thought was an angel from heaven, wasn’t right. 

She said she wouldn’t be in the position where she is today if she and her Eaden were together because, at the time, she was doing everything for him. 

After all, she didn’t believe in herself to take a leap of faith. Following her divorce, she realized she had to get to rock bottom and say that’s wasn’t working. 

Now, she starts every single day with gratitude and doesn’t take anything for granted, and she is like, ”If anything, just as she is, she is enough.”

How did his ex-wife meet her current boyfriend?

His ex-wife is currently in a relationship with Bradley Collins, whom she met during the Pandemic. 

While appearing on The Ellen Show, Metz opened up to the host Mario Lopez about meeting her current boyfriend and how they managed to date during the pandemic. 

According to Metz, she met Collins in March of 2020 during the first season of COVID. 

It was during the lockdown when she was swiping through the dating app named Bumble. 

Metz was in Nashville, where Collins is from, working on country music, and because he is from the music industry, they had many of the same friends. 

But it took Collins forever to ask for her phone number even after weeks of messaging, she explained.

She also talked about her first date, which was supposed to be in the park and was meant to be a cute little socially distanced date. 

“Of Course, it rained, a deluge trying to interfere with my love life, she said. Because it rained, Collins suggested rescheduling, but she was like, ”No, You know how long I waited for you to call me?” 

Rescheduling was not an option, rain or shine. So they ended up going to see his place. 

It was a quarantine date where they kept a distance, where she was in the kitchen and Collins in the living room. 

When Lopez said, “But if you can get through that era, Metz added, “You can get through anything.”
