Timeline of Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney’s Relationship: Collaboration, Marriage, and More
A love song went awry. Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney were married for three years before announcing their divorce in 2022. The “Everywhere” singer and the Black Keys singer met at a party in 2015 and became fast friends, with Carney assisting Branch with the production of her album Hopeless Romantic. “
The record would never have seen the light of day if he hadn’t been involved,” the Arizona native told Billboard in March 2017, adding that recording together “felt like us versus the world.”Pat has commented, ‘I remember seeing you on MTV in the early 2000s and thinking you were extremely cute,'” Branch continued. It’s almost as if we couldn’t have met in our twenties. We could have avoided so much heartbreak!”
Later that year, the “Lonely Boy” singer proposed to Branch. “Thank you for all of your birthday greetings and affection. “Last night, right before I blew out my candles, @officerpatrickcarney proposed to me, and then there was nothing left to wish for,” the songwriter posted on Instagram in July 2017. “This could be the best year ever.”
Rhys, the couple’s son, was born a year later, and he attended his parents’ wedding in April 2019. “2019’s favorite moment” “Hands down,” Branch captioned a PDA photo from her wedding day in New Orleans many months later.
Along with Rhys, the Grammy winner is the mother of Owen, whom she welcomed in 2005 with ex-husband Teddy Landau. From 2004 through 2015, the former couple was married. Branch and Carney welcomed their second child, daughter Willie, in February 2022, after admitting in late 2020 that she had miscarried. Four months later, the “Are You Happy Now?” singer praised her spouse in a beautiful Father’s Day tribute, saying, “This guy makes our world go round and we love him so much.” Patrick, I’m sorry you didn’t get to golf yesterday! Father’s Day.”
Us Weekly revealed the couple’s breakup in August 2022. “To say I am completely devastated doesn’t even begin to describe how I feel for myself and my family,” Branch said in a statement at the time. “The rug has been entirely pulled out from under me, and now I must figure out how to proceed.” With such young youngsters, I request privacy and kindness.”
“I should not have used Twitter to express myself. ‘Please respect our privacy,’ I say, but I’m the one who said it to the world “Branch said to People in a statement issued in September 2022. “I have to remember that I am not the only person involved in this. We have little children.”
The two met at a Grammys party and began dating when Branch was working on her debut album, Hopeless Romantic. Branch brought her daughter Owen with them when they moved into Carney’s home in Nashville. “Patrick and I are over the moon in love with our son Rhys James Carney born August 28th, 2018,” she captioned the first snapshot of her and Carney’s baby boy.
The pair married in New Orleans. On April 20, Branch teased on Instagram, “Can confirm. Michelle Branch and Patrick Carney’s Relationship Before They Split. Just as we were about to circle third and head home (a baseball metaphor? 2020 was like, ‘no, I ain’t done yet,'” the “Game of Love” star said “The performer revealed her pregnancy loss in a lengthy social media message.
“December decided to send us out with a bang! No, I mean literally. Yesterday, a bomb exploded in downtown Nashville. And then, to add insult to injury, I had my first miscarriage (ugh! Motherf–her!).” Branch announced her second pregnancy with Carney less than a year after losing her first. “I couldn’t be more thrilled (and nervous!). Hello, pregnancy after miscarriage anyone?!) to announce that baby Carney will arrive in early 2022! “On August 15, she tweeted.
Branch‘s third child, the couple’s second, was born in Nashville. “The stork arrived at 7:12 a.m. on February 2 and dropped off a baby girl for @michellebranch and I,” the Ohio native captioned his daughter’s Instagram debut. “Willie Jacquet Carney weighed 7 pounds 5 ounces and was 18 feet tall.”
