Marcus Glenn Richardson married life with wife Abby Phillip in detail!
Fans have been wondering about his life after his marriage to the American reporter. And in the article below, we’ll provide you with details, including his relationship, personal life, and career as well.
The couple met for the first time at a mutual friend’s party in 2011.
They didn’t know anyone at the party and ended up speaking with one another. There, they talked about their mutual passions for languages, music, travel, and cuisine.
And within no time, their friendship took a whole new level.
In 2016, he had proposed to his now-wife, Abby Phillip.
He and Phillip had just moved into a new apartment and intended to host Christmas dinner for both of their families.
That’s when Richardson went down on his knee and popped the question.
On May 26, 2018, Richardson and Phillip married in an intimate wedding ceremony at Anderson House, a museum in Washington.
Their wedding was performed by Gene Corbin.
The ceremony was private, with many of the couple’s friends and family members in attendance.
In terms of aesthetics, the facility is known for its vibrant gardens and beautiful interiors. Additionally, the décor included personal touches.

And even though their wedding was hampered by rain, the ceremony went on.

Phillip informed PEOPLE in a statement last month that she was expecting her first child.
“Marcus and I are so happy to announce that the Naomi Angelina Richardson arrived bright and early on Monday morning perfectly happy, healthy and ready to eat. Mom and baby are feeling great. Her first name means ‘pleasant one’ and she is already living up to it and spoiling her mom and dad as a blissfully calm baby. Her middle name Angelina is a tribute to my beloved maternal grandmother who passed away in 2014.”
