Lorenzo Relation History
Lorenzo is currently a married man. He has been married five times until now and his current wife is Shawna Craig. The couple first met each other in Dec 2009. They started dating each other since then and after only 2 months of dating, they decided to take their relationship to the next level and got engaged after 1 year of their engagement they tied their knot on 1st May 2011.The couple doesn’t have children together but Lorenzo has 6 children from his previous marriages. Since then they are going strong and to date, there is no sign of divorce.
When Lorenzo Lamas-Craig married his fifth wife, Shawna Craig, in 2011, not everyone seemed supportive of this wedding. The reason: the couple’s 30-year age difference, their rapid five-month romance, and Lorenzo’s romantic past history led many to dismiss the marriage. Lorenzo recalls that some naysayers had even gone to the extent of questioning Shawna’s motives for marrying an older man. But the 57-year-old actor told on “Oprah: Where Are They Now — Extra” that such comments were far from the truth.
“When we first went public with our relationship, there were a lot of critics out there. They] thought she was in a relationship with me for her self-gain — to gain career and money and all that.”
Lorenzo admits that he and Shawna have been together during some of the trough periods in his life.
“She ended up being with me after I lost everything, with six kids, living in a box in Beverly Hills so my kids could go to school here, with absolutely nothing, So, to call her a ‘gold digger,’ it was absolutely the most asinine thing you could ever say.”
The two have been married for quite many years now and are now feeling that the public opinion regarding their relationship has shifted.
“I think over time, we’ve been able to erase a lot of that [negative] perception, just because we’re still together and still making a life with each other,” Lamas adds.
Shawna did make headlines when she became pregnant with her stepdaughter’s child via surrogacy. She has maintained that it hasn’t been easy to feel like she must frequently defend her love.
“It’s just hard for me, I always tell him, ‘You know, I don’t need stuff, I don’t need money, I don’t need any of that.’ But if we just had more time together and if we were just comfortable, then… I just think of all the possibilities. So much more life that we could have together.”
Shawna says that the wide age difference makes her cry to think of the future. Comforting his wife, Lorenzo explains why he fell for her in the first place.
“There’s no pretense about her, What you see is what you get. And what I saw is something that made me fall in love.”
