Is Jake Busey Married To April Hutchinson?

If you go on searching for Jake Busey’s wife, you will stumble upon April Hutchinson. To this date, not a single source has confirmed that the two are married to each other. However, looking at the dynamics of their relationship, we think the actor is in fact, married to Hutchinson.

Due to privacy concerns, the Starship Troopers actor has never revealed the actual date of his walking down the aisle with his better half. On the other hand, some do believe that they were engaged around 2012. Hence, we speculate that the pair got married in a private affair sometime after getting engaged to one another.

Regardless of everything that we do not know, we can agree that Jake and his partner, April have a lovely relationship. Even after years of being in each other’s presence, they seem to be head over heels for one another. Hopefully, in the days to come, their love and bond grows even fonder!

Busey himself has posted the sweet photo with Hutchinson on his Instagram. Not only this, but he also has posted a number of pictures where both of them look very young and happy. On the other hand, the pair had a rough start to their long-term bond.

To elaborate further, Mr. and Mrs. Busey had an on-off relationship after a few years of dating. As per the actor’s interview, they were separated for 11 years, without the hope of ever getting back together. He said,

“We spent our 20’s together, but seperated (sic) and were apart for 11 years. Looking back on the last couple years, it appears that all of the tragedies and losses in my life were ultimately guiding us back together. I had lost 2 houses, a speed boat , an airplane, the Mercedes, the trucks, my dirtbikes, my health, and filed bankruptcy. Last year April let me stay with her when I was broke and homeless, as I had supported her in the nineties when we were first engaged.”

The duo has been through thick and thin, and have presently become inseparable. To this date, they still are facing numerous challenges together, yet tackling them with a combined force. They truly are an inspiration!
