Lisa Joyner is a famous American reporter and actress. She is known for being an entertainment reporter on the segment, InFANity, on the TV G. Lisa has also worked as a co-host in reality television. Joyner’s reality shows, such as Long Lost Family, focus on the topic of adoption.
It is a word that has played a vital role in Lisa’s life, as she, too, was adopted. Moreover, the Long Lost Family host has adopted a daughter as well. Let’s take a look at Lisa Joyner’s inspiring life story and her successful career.
She is Jon Cryer’s Wife Since 2007 (Children?)
Aside from being a famous entertainment reporter, Lisa Joyner is also known for being the wife of Jon Cryer. Joyner’s husband is known for being the Emmy award winner from Two and a Half Men.
Interestingly, the couple’s last names have two antonyms, cry, and joy. One wonders if Jon married Lisa to bring some joy into his life since his name suggests that he likes crying.
Pun intended, by the way. In all seriousness, though, Jon and Lisa, are a perfect match for each other. Both are celebrities, and they can relate on that front. A match made in heaven, we suppose.
Their engagement and marriage.
The lovely couple got engaged in early 2007. Jon was so excited that he broke the news on television on the Tonight Show with Jay Leno, in February 2007.
After a few months, the wedding bells rang, and the couple tied the knot on June 16th, 2007. Their wedding was done in Mexico. Judging from their social media, it is apparent that the couple loves each other very much. Lisa loves posting photos of her husband on Instagram with loving messages.
To illustrate, on 20th April 2019, the InFANity segment reporter posted a photo of herself, kissing her husband’s cheek. She captioned the picture with a happy Husband Appreciation Day message. She also got candid writing that she had never wanted to get married until she met him.
The couple has one child together, a lovely daughter named Daisy. The Long Lost Family host and her husband adopted Daisy in 2009. Their beautiful daughter was born on August 11th, 2009, and they adopted her shortly after.
During his Emmy acceptance speech, on September 20th, 2009, Jon announced that he had adopted a baby girl with his wife. It seems that Jon has a thing for announcing his life milestones in front of an audience. Indeed, it is adorable, and it shows how excited he is for his life’s important milestones.
It is important to note that Jon Cryer also has a son from a previous marriage. His son’s name is Charlie Austin.
On June 27th, 2018, Lisa posted a photo of her stepson’s birthday cake on Instagram. She then wished Charlie a happy 18th Birthday. The Long Lost Family host then added that she was proud of him and that she was excited about his future.
Her Parents, Ethnicity, and Nationality
Lisa Joyner was born on December 31st, 1966, as Lisa Marie Joyner. She was born in San Diego, California, in the United States.
The Long Lost Family host revealed in an interview with TLC that she was placed for adoption immediately after birth.
The InFANity segment reporter was then placed in foster care. She got adopted after three months. The Long Lost Family host’s adoptive parents were of Caucasian and Asian ethnicities.
As she was growing up, Lisa often got questioned why her parents gave her away. It made her feel sad and prompted her to want to meet her birth parents. In the interview with TLC, she also revealed that she wanted to heal her primal wounds.
Moreover, she desired to know her ethnicity, which many people had always asked her about. What stood out during the interview was when Lisa said that she had also wanted her birth parents to know that she was okay.
The InFANity segment reporter began searching for her birth family for some years, but with no luck. One day, she got a message from a viewer when she was working at a FOX television station. The viewer informed Lisa that she could help her find her biological parents.
She took up the offer, and within a week, she had found her biological parents. Interestingly, Joyner found out that her birth parents lived 5 miles from each other. Shockingly, she also found out that her birth parents had never seen each other since she was born.
Fortunately, both of her parents were willing to meet her. Joyner revealed that she met her half-sister and her niece, both of whom she’s very close to. She also reunited with her extended birth family in San Diego.
