It's already been 19 years to their marriage but look at their love and relationship is as strong as any teenagers in their 20's. Despite their long married life, the remain childless till this date. They do not have any children of their own and nor have they adopted any except Andreas's god-daughter. So, moving on, we did look at Andrea's past, but we haven't talked about Alan's history of relationships, right? Let's have a glimpse of it too.

It’s not only Andrea who was married before. Yes, Alan Greenspan was also married before he bonded with Andrea. Alan was husband to a woman named Joan Mitchell in the year of 1952 but in less than a year, got divorced. Neither Alan nor Andrea has any records for children from their previous marriages.

As we discussed before too, it’s already been around nineteen years to their marriage and being a couple without having their child; they haven’t said why anything related to the topic of having a child. Maybe, Andrea's god-daughter is a child of their own in their point of view and maybe not. 

According to a source, there were rumors about the couple likely to go through a divorce just because Andrea wanted children and Alan didn’t.

At this point, nothing can be labeled as fact as the couple hasn’t spoken about anything like this. Apart from the previous failures in their love life, they maintained their marriage pretty well, and as far as we know, they are still going strong.
