Damon Wayans Jr. is a member of the sprawling Wayans clan who is in the public eye for a long time. Damon’s father, Damon Wayans, is a famous actor who appeared as 'Roger Murtaugh' in the recently canceled Lethal Weapon series for three years. Damon Wayan Jr. is the son of the actor and his ex-wife, Lisa Thorner.
Wayans Jr. also followed on his father’s footsteps and became a comedian and actor, appearing in multiple movies and TV shows over the years. He’s got three siblings with only him achieving mainstream success both in films and TV shows.
The actor was finding success in show business, but his home life was suffering when he was living with his then-girlfriend, Aja Metoyer. The couple split after hitting some rough patch, and then he found love with someone else, someone, who he claims, is the best person, and he loves her dearly.
Who is Damon Wayans Jr.’s Wife Samara Saraiva?
After the actor split from his girlfriend, who is also the mother of his two daughters, he met Samara Saraiva in 2014. It was not, exactly, love at first sight, but the duo did fall for each other over time and over time, felt comfortable with each other, which led the two to make their red carpet debut during the premiere of Damon’s movie 'Let’s Be Cops.'
Samara is an extremely private person, and when most people would’ve exploited the spotlight for their own gain, she seems to be content with living away from the tabloid magazines and gossip columns. There is not much information available about the actress with her not being on social media and making appearances every once in a blue moon with Damon.
The couple dated for about two years when Damon popped the question, and the duo got married in 2016. They are still without any kids of their own; Samara is the step-mother to two daughters of Damon from his past affair with girlfriend Aja.
Though she likes to hide from the media, it seems the couple shares a close bond and is in love with each other. The bond between the two was strengthened by their marriage, and the couple’s daily work on making each other better is the reason they are still together, and the second relationship of Damon did not end like the first one.
