For more than a decade, there has been a long-term relationship between the rock band Whitesnake’s Michael Devin and The Sopranos star Drea De Matteo.
There are very few details about this couple’s relationship since they both do a great job keeping their love lives out of the spotlight.
Let’s take a look at this topic and recap their relationship thus far.
Only a few rock bands have been performing and creating songs for almost 50 years; this is Whitesnake.
In the early 70s, the band started with five members, David Coverdale on the guitar, Micky Moody on the guitar, Bernie Marsden on the keyboards, and Dave Dowling on the drums.
“Trouble”, Whitesnake’s debut album, was released in 1978, and the band had a very successful run for the following years.
The following six years witnessed the release of five more albums by the band, including “Lovehunter,” “Come and Get It,” and “Saints & Sinners.”.
When Devin said, “I fell in love with a woman a few years ago, could we all relate to that?” Devin sighed as he continued, “A few years ago, I fell in love with a very beautiful woman, and I would like to embarrass her as much as possible and I would like to invite her up here today.”.
As he introduced her, he said, ‘This is Miss Drea de Matteo, the wonderful, beautiful, and superb actress.”
Taking the stage with his children beside the actress, he went on to say, “I’ve loved you since the day I met you and I’ll continue to love you for the rest of my life, and I hope that you will marry me.”.
It was only when she asked Devin if he would love her children forever that de Matteo accepted what Devin said.
After that, the couple posted a picture on Instagram to celebrate the engagement:
Taking to Twitter to thank everyone for their birthday wishes, Devin wrote: “Big Huge Thank You for all your Birthday wishes and blessings for my engagement to this kitty cat… Much appreciated!”
Timeline of Dreama De Matteo and Michael Devin
Drea was in two long-term relationships with Michael Sports between 1995 and 2003 before she got into a very serious relationship with Michael Devin. It has been reported that Drea was in a relationship with Shooter Jennings between 2009 and 2012.
Derea had been engaged to Jennings for some time, and the couple even welcomed two children to their family, daughter Alabama and younger son Waylon.
Sadly, not much is known about the relationship between Drea De Matteo and Michael Devin, but we can only guess that they started dating back in 2012 and still going strong almost 10 years later.
During a concert featuring “Whitesnake” in 2015, Michael proposed to Drea when he asked her if she would be making “sweet, passionate love” to him for the rest of their lives.
During the performance, she even asked if he would always love her children, which was an awwwwwww moment for me because both of them said yes and performed together as a unit.
There have been rumours about the couple getting married for a long time, but it’s unclear if they have tied the knot.
Do you know who Drea de Matteo is?
Dreama de Matteo is an actress best known for roles in films and sitcoms, where she earned acclaim as a supporting actress. Her most notable roles include Wendy Case in the FX series “Sons of Anarchy” and Adriana La Cerva in the HBO television series “The Sopranos”. An Emmy Award was given to her for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. It is no secret that she is a household name due to her roles on ABC’s ‘Desperate Housewives’ and Joey Tribbiani’s sister, Gina, on NBC’s ‘Joey’. She is currently playing a detective in NBC’s police drama series ‘Shades of Blue’. She comes from an affluent background and is the youngest child among three children and one of the only girls in the family. The couple opened Filth Mart, a clothing store selling Rock ‘n’ Roll vintage clothing in East Village, jointly with their boyfriend Michael Sports, which operated from 1997 to 2004. Ultimately, she decided to follow in her mother’s footsteps and pursue a career in theatre. Although she originally wanted to become a director, she found her way into films and television shows as an actress. Today she is one of the biggest celebrities in Hollywood and has appeared in almost all of the most popular television shows. Even though she has been engaged twice and has two children, there is no news about her marriage yet.
Choosing a career
Even though she didn’t have any prior acting experience, she was cast in the pilot for “The Sopranos” in what was intended to be a small role as a restaurant hostess but ended up being a crucial supporting role. She was very convincing in her role as the tough but loving girlfriend of one of the younger members of the Soprano crime family, who was struggling to balance her relationships with her career.
Her career took off after her initial success. She appeared in several films on the big screen, including the action thriller ‘Swordfish’ in 2001 with Hugh Jackman and John Travolta, the drama ‘Deuces Wild’ about two rival New York gangs in 2002, ‘The Perfect You’ and ‘Prey for Rock & Roll’ in 2003.
Additionally, she starred in the remake of John Carpenter’s 1976 action film ‘Assault on Precinct 13’ and Abel Ferrara’s ‘R Xmas,’ both of which received favourable reviews.
During the 2001 and 2002 editions of the Maxim Hot 100 Women, she ranked 42nd and 56th, respectively. She was ranked as the 33rd sexiest woman globally by the magazine ‘Stuff’ in their list of the 102 sexiest women in the world in 2002.
She won an Emmy Award for the Best Supporting Actress (Drama) for the role she played as Adriana on the popular TV series “The Sopranos” (Season 5). She was also nominated for a Golden Globe award for the same role.
She played lighter roles between 2004 and 2006 in the ‘Friends’ spin-off series ‘Joey.’ The show ended after two seasons. She played Joey Tribbiani’s sister Gina in the ‘Friends’ spin-off series ‘Joey’.
In 2008, Di Matteo made her solo debut on television in the FX original series Sons of Anarchy, playing the role of Wendy Case. Up until the seventh and final season of the show, she continued to make regular appearances.
The actress also played Angie Bolen, the mother of the Bolen family, in the show ‘Desperate Housewives’ that aired on ABC. In 2010, after the show’s 6th season, she decided to leave the show due to personal reasons.
In addition to starring as the stepmother for the main character in “Running Wild”, she co-starred in the movie adaptation of “Dark Places” with Charlize Theron, Chloe Grace Moretz, and Nicholas Hoult in the role of Krissi Cates.
