Paul Qualley gained fame and popularity after his marriage to MacDowell, so there is not really much information about his background and early life, but here is everything available about his biography.
He was born in the United States in 1958. There is no further information about his parents or his educational background.
There is also no precise information about his background, how he started, and what his motives were at that time. It is only known that he started modeling quite early, appeared on many catwalks, and in commercials before he finally gave up modeling to enter the ranch business.
Married, Divorce, Children
As mentioned above, Paul Qualley became quite famous after he married the Hollywood actress and fashion model Andie MacDowell. The couple, who would later tie the knots in 1986, met while posing for Gap commercials, got to know each other, courted each other for a few years before finally walking down the aisle.
After being together for 13 years, the couple split up in 1999, a strange and shocking break-up, as just months earlier MacDowell had raved about their happiness and praised Paul for being a house-husband, a “super mom” who cooked for and cared for their then young children. Whatever had gone wrong, the couple never got a word in edgewise.
However, their 13-year relationship produced three children (a son and two daughters). Justin was born in 986, Rainey in 1990, and Sarah Margaret Qualley in 1994.
After the divorce, the duo went separate ways to build new relationships. For Andie, she was married to businessman Rhett Hartzog from 2001 to 2004. She was also engaged to Kevin Geagan in 2006.
Unlike MacDowell, Paul is reportedly still single, although this claim has not been confirmed, sources say he has disappeared from the dating scene since the divorce. Some sources claim he hasn’t gotten over his divorce from Andie.
Despite the separation, child custody has never been an issue for the former couple, as both are responsible for their children.
Although their son prefers to stay away from the entertainment arena, the ladies – Rainey and Sarah Margaret – are similar to their mother in acting and also a little bit in modeling. The mother-daughter trio once appeared as the fantastic three on the cover of Town and Country.
The younger daughter – Margaret once revealed in an interview that her parents’ loose upbringing initially had a negative influence on her, but today it has helped her to go her own way.
The quite outspoken Margaret also admitted that her mother’s choice of men sometimes shocked her. She said she hoped that her parents would get back together after their divorce in 1999, but that her mother’s choice of Dennis Quaid at the time really stunned her.
The young actress has starred in countless films such as The Leftovers, Death Note, The Nice Guys, IO, Strange but True, Donnybrook, etc.
Qualley’s first daughter Rainey is also a bit experienced on screen, as she played alongside her mother in 2012’s Mighty Fine. She also appeared in Falcon Song and was also Miss Golden Globe in 2012. However, she is very popular as a country singer. Her hit singles are Turn Me On Like The Radio and Me and Me and Johnny Cash.
Rainey said that she has always wanted to make music and act and that it has helped her a lot to have family members working in similar areas as they all help and inspire each other. And: “We understand the difficulties that this kind of profession brings with it,” she added.
