Facts About American Idol Alum Chris Daughtry’s Wife Deanna Daughtry

This week, American Idol alum Chris Daughtry was revealed to be the Rottweiler on The Masked Singer. While many were taken aback, some were able to connect the dots thanks to the Rottweiler’s clues.

He alluded not only to Chris and his self-titled band’s musical accomplishments but also to Chris’s family. Chris and his wife, Deanna Daughtry, made headlines earlier this year when they revealed details about their relationship. This was not the first time. Our Deanna Daughtry wiki contains all of the information about Chris Daughtry’s wife.

In 2000 Chris Daughtry and Deanna Married

She was born Deanna Gotreau on April 5, 1973, in North Carolina, as is her husband Chris Daughtry. Donna and Wayne Gotreau, Deanna’s parents, were born in Massachusetts and raised in North Carolina. Donna has been living in Nashville, Tennessee with Deanna and Chris since 2016.

Wayne died in 2018, leaving behind his wife Donna, Deanna, and her children, as well as Deanna’s siblings Erin Mcgill and Joshua and their children.

Chris Daughtry, an aspiring musician, had been dating Deanna, a licensed massage therapist six years his senior, long before he appeared on American Idol in 2006. Chris was 20 years old and still had a full head of hair when they married on November 11, 2000.

Chris went on to become an overnight sensation after finishing fourth on American Idol season 5. He and his father-in-law previously worked at Crown car dealerships in Greensboro.

Wayne, Donna, and Deanna were regulars in the local news and at Idol viewing parties back then as Chris made it through week after week.

Deanna has Two Children From a Previous Marriage

Chris and Deanna have twin daughters, Adalynn Rose and Noah James, who was born on November 17, 2010. However, Chris has also assisted Deanna in raising her previous relationship’s two children.

Hannah Price, born on September 7, 1996, and Griffin, born on June 30, 1998, are Deanna’s children from previous relationships. She had been raising them as a single mother before marrying Chris.

Hannah had a difficult year in 2018. She was shot in the face in October 2018, in addition to losing her biological father to suicide. Official reports of the incident are unavailable, but she required a prosthetic eye and reconstructive surgery, according to a GoFundMe page she set up for her medical expenses.

Through Hannah or Griffin, Chris and Deanna are also grandparents to Liam Christopher Daughtry.

Deanna Has Revealed That She is Bisexual

The Daughtrys’ marriage has had its share of ups and downs. Not only was Chris’ infidelity after becoming famous a strain on their relationship, but they were also dealing with Deanna’s sexual identity crisis.

Deanna came out as bisexual after being in the closet for years, thanks to Daughtry’s song “As You Are.” Chris and a few others were aware of Deanna’s sexual orientation, but she had never spoken openly about it before.

She turned her pain into poetry, writing a sheet of lyrics to give to her musician husband. Her lyrics inspired him to write “As You Are” and release it, revealing that his wife is bisexual.

Deanna had told Chris about her previous marriage and divorce with Hannah’s father, as well as a relationship with another woman before they started dating. Through therapy and personal development, she would finally accept her bisexuality.

Chris and Deanna revealed the hard-earned stability they found in their marriage in a rare candid interview together back in June. With his Idol fame and platinum-selling albums, he was on the road a lot, often away from Deanna and their children. That’s when he admitted to defrauding Deanna.

Despite this, Chris expressed regret and guilt for his infidelity and worked to repair their marriage. “I think we’ve been committed enough to learn as we go and acknowledge that we’re still figuring it out,” Chris said at the time.

“It’s as if the universe knew we were going to help each other grow,” Deanna said. “and each of us would be exactly what the other required.”
