Who is Evelyn Melendez?

Evelyn Melendez is a model, but she has achieved stardom through her marriage to pop sensation Jordan Knight; the two have been together since the mid-‘90s. They married in 2004 and are still apparently enjoying their time together, despite rumors of them being separated.

So, do you want to find out more about Evelyn, from her childhood years to most recent events in her life? Well, if yes, then stay with us for the length of the article as we introduce you to the wife of Jordan Knight.

Is Evelyn Melendez Still Married to Jordan Knight?

Well, the short answer to this question would be yes. The beginnings of their relationship trace back to 1996 when they first met, after which the two started a romantic relationship which soon resulted in Evelyn becoming pregnant- she gave birth to their first child, Dante Jordan, born on the 25th August 1999. The couple continued their relationship, and five years later crowned their love with a wedding ceremony, which was rather private, as in attendance there were only family and closest friends. The couple’s second child, Eric Jacob, was born on the 21st February 2007.  In recent years, Jordan’s extramarital affairs began surfacing, such as with actress and model Shanna Moakler, which lasted for around a year, before he ended the romance and rekindled with Evelyn. The two are apparently now happy and have been working out on their differences.

Evelyn Melendez Wiki: Age, Childhood, Education

Unfortunately, Evelyn is a rather secretive person and information about her life is minimal in the media. Therefore, there is no information when and where she was born, who her parents are and whether she has any siblings or not. Her educational background also remains unknown to the media. Hopefully, Evelyn changes her mind and starts sharing details from her life with the public. For now, she has decided to stay away from the public eyes, despite the enormous popularity her husband enjoys. She is rarely seen with him at large events, though they have shared a few pictures on social media platforms, such as this one, among numerous others.
