Who Is Jesse Williams’s Wife? 5 Things to Know About Aryn Drake-Lee

In case you missed the good news, Grey's Anatomy hunk Jesse Williams (Jackson Avery) became a daddy! The handsome star and his wife, Aryn Drake-Lee, welcomed daughter Sadie in early December, though they kept the news under wraps until recently.

Jesse and Aryn are pretty quiet about their private life, so we're sure lots of you are wondering about the lucky lady who got one of Grey Sloan Memorial's Most Eligible to put a ring on it. We've gathered five facts about Jesse's wife so you can get to know her a little better.

1. She's a real estate broker. Many Grey's Anatomy stars eschew romance with other entertainers in favor of people with more "normal" jobs, and Jesse is no exception.

2. She's been with Jesse since before he was famous. This definitely isn't a case of someone chasing a star for fame or money. Jesse and Aryn met when he was still a teacher in New York City. "She's been with me through all different facets of my career," Jesse told USA Today. "She's stuck with me through thick and thick and thick and thin."

3. She and Jesse dated for over five years before getting married in 2012. Another sign this relationship was meant to last: they've already been together for a long time!

4. She's confident and independent. Jesse Williams explained to People why he admires Aryn: "She is her own person. Being intelligent and self-made is a big deal for me."

5. She was happy to move to LA with him. Jesse and Aryn met when they were both living in New York, but don't worry, she was happy to move to California with him when his acting career took off. Turns out she loves Cali and was sick of the East Coast weather, anyway!

In conclusion, it sounds like she's pretty darned awesome — and Jesse clearly adores her!
