Heather McMahan’s Husband

Introduced to each other in a gay bar by a mutual friend many moons ago, Heather and her husband, Jeff Daniels, have continued to scale the highs and lows of life together. The actress, writer, and comedienne met her now-husband in New York City over a decade ago. It wasn’t long before their relationship progressed, and the two grew closer. Like all things in her life, Jeff’s proposal to Heather was also interesting and memorable. The former decided to bend on one knee and pop up the ultimate question when the duo were holidaying in Turks & Caicos.

He asked her hand in holy matrimony in the pool of Wymara Resort. In an interview with Over the Moon, Heather shared her candid response to the proposal. As Jeff pulled the ring out of his wet swim trunks, Heather audibly gasped, not because she was surprised or taken aback, but because she was wrought with the fear that the ring might fall out of his hands and into the pool and forever lost in the drain. The couple were initially set to tie the knot in September 2020; however, like most engaged duos, Jeff and Heather had to postpone their plans in light of the COVID-19 pandemic.

While Heather and her mother, Robin, had worked out several details of the wedding, the plans were ultimately derailed. During this time, the comedienne and her husband-to-be relocated from New York to Atlanta to cohabit with Heather’s mom. Ultimately, the couple decided to tie the knot in a civil ceremony on December 21, 2020. However, they assured their friends that their plans to have a bash in Italy were still set in stone. Almost two years later, the couple read their vows once again with friends and family present.

With a remarkable team to help them through the journey, Heather embodied the style of a “Vegas showgirl meets Italian movie star who has a weekend house in Tuscany.” Since tying the knot, the couple has continued to embark on new adventures and challenges. As true partners and each other’s biggest cheerleaders, they continue to support one another through each milestone and each roadblock.

Does Heather McMahan Have Kids?

On her weekly podcast ‘Absolute Not,’ Heather has opened up about her pregnancy and fertility journey. Having been prescribed by her gynecologist to begin her family planning, the comedienne embarked on a journey to freeze her eggs, only to find out that there weren’t many eggs to retrieve. Later, she began her IVF treatment, which wasn’t a cakewalk either. Despite undergoing a mentally and physically demanding process of shots, doctor appointments, and fluctuating hormones, more problems awaited the media personality. Things turned awry when she struggled to administer the shots perfectly.

With a few loose instructions guiding her through the process, the actress failed to carry out the step-by-step procedures that ensure its effectiveness. Ultimately, failing to mix the medication led her to have two unsuccessful IVF attempts. In the hopes of helping other women find resonance in her story and understand the dos and don’ts, Heather also shared the private details of her journey. When asked by Ashley Hesseltine and Rayna Greenberg about the process of egg freezing in the ‘Girls Gotta Eat’ podcast, Heather did not hold back.

Heather shared that she put on a skew of medication to grow her eggs. At one point, the doctors even informed her that many of her eggs wouldn’t mature to a fertilization state, making natural impregnation difficult. However, she was not deterred and ultimately managed to get an embryo with the help of medical intervention. With the love of each other and their furry babies — dogs Macaroni Limone Ferrari Daniels and Rigatoni Cannoli Gandolfini Daniels, the couple continues to embrace all the changes in life.

Heather and Jeff share the same Italian heritage and love traveling together. In addition to globetrotting, they also partake in each other’s interests. While Jeff is an avid golfer, Heather tries to incorporate herself into the sport to the best of her abilities. Having been together for more than 13 years, the duo continues to find the strength to take on new challenges with great strides.
