Jennifer Lynn Stone is the wife of actor Fred Savage, who played Kevin Arnold in The Wonder Years. Lynn and Savage have been together for more than two decades and have had three children in that time.
Professionally, Jennifer Stone has a very different career than her husband, who, along with his equally famous brother, was a major face on television in the 1980s and 1990s thanks to their high-quality TV series. Fred, his brother, and even their sister, Kala Savage, were all characters in their own TV series.
You could say that Fred and Ben have grown up in the public eye. But Fred’s love life is also intriguing in his story. Find out all about his other half, Jennifer Stone, where and how the couple came to be, how they’ve held on all these years, and much more.
Who Is Jennifer Lynn Stone?
Stone was born in 1973. Now 44 years old, she is originally from Chicago and grew up in Glencoe.
When she was 20, Lynn worked as a commercial real estate agent.
However, it is currently unclear whether she is still working in this profession. What makes the issue even more confusing is that the mother of Fred’s children is not well known even on social networks such as Facebook, Twitter, or Instagram.
Nor are there any details of her parents, her origins, and, basically, her life before she met her acting partner.
Jennifer Lynn Stone Grew Up With Her Husband
Jennifer and her husband were childhood friends. They met each other while growing up in Chicago.
The couple-to-be reportedly spent their childhood together in the Chicago suburbs.
However, the couple lost touch in 1988 when Fred, then 11 years old, moved with his family to Los Angeles. The Savages’ eldest child had just landed the role of a lifetime on the small screen as Kevin Arnold in The Wonder Years.
Eleven years later, however, the former real estate agent and former child star reconnected.
Jennifer Lynn Stone Reunited With Fred Savage After Ten Years
After the end of “The Wonder Years”, Savage became less active on the small screen and was involved in other areas of business. When he turned 20, he met an old girlfriend at his 22nd birthday party, and she was none other than Jennifer Lynn Stone.
They then started a relationship and got married.
Speaking to People magazine, Savidge said,
“We started talking and smooching, and we’ve been together ever since.”
When they met for the second time, Savage was still working on some television projects and Jennifer was working as a real estate agent.
They Got Engaged In Italy
Fred got engaged to Jennifer in September 2003. On a trip to Italy, he proposed to her with a five-carat cushion-cut sapphire surrounded by diamonds. The ring was from Los Angeles designer Neil Lane. Stone’s then-boyfriend Savage engraved the ring with the inscription “I must do something good”.
Apparently, it is a line from Stone’s favorite film, The Sound of Music.
Jennifer Lynn Stone And Fred Savage’s Wedding
Jennifer and her husband had a Jewish wedding. She married her fiancé, Fred Savage, on 7 August 2007. The couple exchanged vows at the Los Angeles restaurant L’Orangerie.
The wedding ceremony included a marquee with topiaries and lanterns decorated with orchids. The venue for the ceremony was L’Orangerie restaurant in Los Angeles.
The groom wore a black tuxedo and Stone a white Monique Lhuillier gown with loaned Neil Lane jewelry. She wore an Edwardian necklace and a diamond and platinum bracelet.
They made rather unique marriage vows. The Princess Bride’s co-star promised to always bring Stone a glass of water before bed, while the bride promised never to let her dress – herself.
Her Husband’s Acting Career
Lynch’s husband, Fred Savage, became known for his role as Kevin Arnold in The Wonder Years. He has also received People’s Choice and Young Artist Award nominations.
His other popular roles include grandson in The Princess Bride and the voice of Oswald, the main character of the Nickelodeon series.
After the series The Wonder Years ended in 1993, Stone’s husband Savage continued to work in television and films. He starred in films such as Austin Powers in Goldmember, The Rules of Attraction, and Welcome to Mooseport.
In addition, he produced and directed Phil of the Future on the Disney Channel and directed episodes of Kitchen Confidential and Nickelodeon’s Drake & Josh.
The Jewish star also starred in the ABC comedy Crumbs.
She Is The Mother Of Three
Together, Stone and Savage are the parents of three children. Their first child, son Oliver Phil Savage, was born on 5 August 2006, and their daughter Lily Aeryn Savage on 3 May 2008.
However, when it came to the third pregnancy, Stone and her partner kept it a secret and only announced the news after the birth of their third child. This time it was a boy, named Auggie Savidge by Jennifer and her actor husband. He was born on 26 November 2012.
Jennifer Lynn Stone And Her Spouse Wanted To Raise Their Children In Chicago
Despite spending most of their adult lives in Los Angeles, the couple once said they wanted to raise their children to have the spirit of Chicago in them.
In an interview with the Chicago-Sun-Times, Fred said.
“While we’ve lived in L.A. for a long time, it’s very important to us to instill in our children a sense of that Chicago spirit — and we keep it alive in our house all the time.”
Jennifer’s partner also talked about raising his children to be Chicago Cubs fans.
Are They Still Married?
Presumably, this question arises given that Fred has not shared any pictures of him alongside his long-time partner Lynn.
There is therefore speculation, which is not well-founded, that the parents of the three children may have already divorced. However, the last time Fred mentioned his wife Stone was in April 2020, when he published a rather funny photo with an equally funny caption.
In any case, childhood friends turned husband and wife are very likely to be together, and could certainly be for years to come.
