If you are wondering about the same, we have the answers you need!
Cody Longo’s Former Relationships
In early 2009, speculations of Cody dating Cassandra “Cassie” Scerbo were rampant as the two young artists were often seen together. The link between them became even bigger news when the duo was seen together at a Young Holiday Party in September 2019. The same month reportedly saw them together at Macy’s Passport Benefit, an event organized at Barker Hangar in Santa Monica, California. However, in 2010, reports suggested that the two had broken up. It should be noted that neither party ever confirmed whether or not they were in a relationship.
The same year, Cody’s name was linked to Rachele Brooke Smith, his co-star from ‘Bring It On: Fight to the Finish.’ The 2009 comedy features the actor in the role of Evan Whitbourne, while Rachel portrays Avery Whitbourne. It was also reported that Cody had been in a relationship with Cherie Jimenez Daly from late 2012 to late 2013. There are certainly plenty of pictures of the duo on Instagram from this duration. In fact, they were often seen in each other’s company and looked to be spending as much time together as possible.
Cody Longo’s Wife and Children
Cody Longo married Stephanie Longo(née Clark) on October 22, 2015. As of writing, she serves as the Founder of Talent 22, an agency based in four different US cities that focuses on helping dancers, choreographers, and entertainers. In addition, Stephanie holds the position of Assistant Director at Dance Institute, Austin. On the day of her husband’s passing, she apparently felt uneasy while at work and decided to check up on him.
After being unable to contact Cody, Stephanie called the police to check up on her husband. This subsequently led to the discovery of his body on his bed after he had passed away. Cody’s death certainly left a devastating impact on his wife, who was understandably distraught by the news. “Cody was our whole world. The kids and I are shattered and beyond devastated. He was the best dad and best husband. We will always and forever miss you and love you,” she said.
In November 2015, Cody and Stephanie were blessed with their first child, a daughter whom they named Lyla Lou. The happy family welcomed their elder son Elijah in October 2017, who quickly became an object of adoration for his parents and his older sister. Moreover, July 2021 saw the arrival of Cody and Stephanie’s third child, a son named Noah Rain. Interestingly, the older two of three siblings seem to have inherited their mother’s passion for dancing and their dad’s love for music.
The love that Cody had for his children was evident for anyone to see. The doting father of three would always try to spend as much time together with his kids as much possible and took delight in all their accomplishments. Whether it be Noah’s first steps or Lyla’s performance as a gymnast, the actor was happy to share in their joy. We offer our heartfelt condolences to Cody’s family and wish them the strength to make it through this turbulent part of their lives.
