Max Gail has been married to his wife Nan Harris since 1989
Moving on to his marital affairs, the famed American actor Max tied the knot in 1989 with his second wife, Nan Harris, another American celebrity. Their love story became stronger as they welcomed together their two children, Maxwell, born in 1990, and Grace, in 1993. The romantic duo extended their family and embraced and adopted Nan’s nephew, Delondon. Looking on a shallow surface of their family relationship, Max and his beloved wife, Nan Harris, seem to be happily living their lives together.
However, no matter how strong and happy their relationship might have been, their marriage didn’t end up happily. The couple parted ways last 2000 due to reasons that are not yet known and available to the public. Despite that, the famed actor continues striving through his career, leading him to become someone he is today.
First Wife, Willie Beir
Max Gail’s love story was like the one that happened in the movies. Before his heart tied with his second wife, he was romantically connected with his former wife, Willie Beir, in late 1983. Their romantic partnership grew fonder when Willie gave birth to their child India, in late 1984. As expected, the couple blissfully celebrated their blessings.
However, their three years of marriage were ended not by choice but by life’s harsh inevitability – death. His ex-wife, Willie Beir, died in 1986 as a result of cancer. It feels like watching a movie where the protagonist dies at the end. One can say that their marriage is indeed a realistic representation of the marital vows that couples exchange during weddings, “Till death do us part.”
After Willie’s death, Max Gail’s role in the family became doubled as he stood as the caring mother for their daughter, and at the same time, as the strong father who will never leave her daughter behind.
Amidst adversities and the passing of his former wife, Gail never stopped from continuing to move forward. Succeedingly, the distinguished actor took on the role of the narrator in the documentary, Hoxsey: When Healing Becomes a Crime. Afterward, his years of mourning were covered with another story of love when he met his second wife, Nan Harris. Finding another partner, however, does not mean he has forgotten about his first love. Beir has left something in Gail’s life that is surely irreplaceable – their memories and their daughter.
Fans and supporters have still shown the couple their unwavering support.
