The celebrations were held in Steve’s house in LA and away from the prying eyes of the media. Even the guests were not informed about the occasion. They came to attend a regular, casual party. It is only after they reached the venue that they got to learn about the big surprise.

Early life and background of Anne Stringfield
Anne was born into an academic family with no link to writing or the entertainment world.

Anne matriculated from Pensacola High School and got admitted to Davidson College later. She got out in 1994 with a bachelor’s degree and took a job as a fact-checker at none other than The New Yorker magazine. Besides checking facts, she also wrote articles, features, and reviews on off-Broadway theatre productions occasionally for the magazine. Art was her scene, and as a trustee of the LA Museum of Art, she wrote beautiful articles in the genre. She has also worked as a freelance writer for Vogue and other popular publications.
Relationships and Steve!
Anne Stringfield is Steve Martin’s second wife, the first one being Victoria Tennant, an English actress. They got separated in 1994 after eight years of marriage. Anne met Steve through work when she was assigned one of his comedy pieces to check. She called him several times for the work but became friends in the process. According to sources, they talked over the phone for years before meeting in real. Despite being a stand-up comedian and a popular one that too, Steve is an introvert. The chirpy yet calm demeanor of Anne impressed him a lot. They took their guests by surprise, as they attended a party at Steve’s LA residence, only to find that the couple has planned to take their vows. Although the couple decided to make their wedding a surprise, it was a star-studded occasion. Almost everyone, from Bob Kerrey to Lorne Michaels, was present to cheer for the newlyweds.
After five years of marriage, the couple welcomed their firstborn, Mary Martin, to the world. But what is more interesting, Steve joked in one of his shows that their daughter has been named, ‘Conquistador’, which is a statement of uniqueness. It means that Mary is different from the rest of the Hollywood star kids. Currently, Anne leads a blissful life with her husband Steve and daughter Mary, despite people raising questions about their age gap.
