Who is Mark Hoppus' wife?
Mark Hoppus married Skye Everly in 2000 and the couple has spent two decades together in love and marital bliss. Their son Jack Hoppus was born in 2002, two years after their wedding.
Their love story began in a rather unconventional way, as Everly had initially refused to go out with Hoppus. He later shared how they actually met through former band member Tom DeLonge. "Tom (DeLonge) always used to embarrass me. Any girl he'd talk to, he'd say, 'Hey, you wanna go on a date with Mark?' He asked Skye, my wife, who looked at me and said 'No.' That's how it all started."
At that time, Skye was working as a talent executive with MTV and the couple met during a rehearsal for the video of 'All the Small Things'. Everly worked for MTV for nearly 10 years till her marriage. A graduate from Pepperdine University, she decided to switch careers and become a designer after motherhood. She later founded Childish Clothing, which sells kids' clothes and maternity wear. Everly is also the author of the book 'Rock Star Momma', which addresses styling and fashion during pregnancy.
"I stopped working because being pregnant and going to clubs to scout for bands was not such a great fit. But I just couldn’t sit still. I had to do something. I also had a problem: I couldn’t find cool clothes that looked good on my ever-expanding body. I started off designing jeans without that ugly stretchy belly band, so you could even wear them after you had the baby," she once shared about the inspiration behind her clothing label.
Everly regularly shares romantic photos with her husband on her social media, celebrating their beautiful love story. Though she is yet to make any public comment about Hoppus' cancer diagnosis, fans believe that she is tirelessly supporting him through such tough times.
