Interesting Details Of Andrea Bock’s Relationship With Ty Pennington And How She Became Popular

Between 2003 and 2012, ABC Channel’s Extreme Makeover: Home Edition (EM:HE) star Ty Pennington (Gary Tygert Burton) brought solace to countless challenged homes via the program. That was however not the first or only time the multi-talented American has attracted media or public attention. Thus, today, the carpenter cum TV personality is very well known throughout America and beyond. However, many of his fans have been wanting to get detailed facts about his wife (or is it girlfriend?), Andrea Bock.

The two have been together for more than two decades and then in 2016, there was the rumor that, like every good thing that comes to an end, their relationship had finally seen its end. But then, as it would turn out, this was entirely false, pulling more attention to Bock, and more than ever, everyone is interested in knowing who she is.

How It All Began – Early Life of Andrea Bock

While her actual date of birth still remains elusive, there are speculations that she was born sometime in the 1960s in Atlanta, Georgia. It was also there that she spent a better part of her childhood.

She reportedly got her education from Sprayberry High School which also happens to be where Ty Pennington was educated. After her high school education, she got a degree from The Savannah College of Arts and Design in Georgia where she studied theatre arts.

Initially, she was said to be interested in becoming an actress. Because of this, she took acting classes when she was in college and continued until she graduated. Although this dream did not come true, it did not drive her entirely away from the showbiz as she decided to remain and take on the job of a celebrity manager in Hollywood.

However, the only notable celebrity she is known to have managed is Ty Pennington himself. She first got involved as an assistant during the production of the reality TV show, “Trading Spaces” before later getting a hand in “American Diner Revival” among other shows of Ty.

After managing the TV show host for a couple of years, they began got romatically involved with each other. Interestingly, the duo’s romance without a legal marriage binding them for over two decades now!

How Their Love Story of More Than Two Decades Has Unfolded

The paths of the lovers first crossed in the second half of the 1990s, first under the umbrella of a professional engagement. However, by 1996, their hearts crossed and they began dating but it was until 1997 that they made it official.

More than twenty years since they began dating, the two have still remained together, although they have refused to be tied by a knot or drag each other down the aisle for a number of reasons. For starters, the couple is comfortable with the way things are as they prefer to be partners and a team rather than to be joined in marriage.

Also, they reveal that they have found happiness living together as an unmarried couple and so they do not see any reason why they need to change things in the name of getting married.

Going by the social media handle of Ty, one may likely think that he has a child with Andrea as he quite often posts a picture of a young girl. For the records, the two do not have any child at the moment and there are no indications that they are interested in having any. The young girl he shares on his Instagram is only his niece and not his daughter with Andrea.

Although it seems their relationship has been perfect, they have had their own issues and rumors of breakups in the past. There was once the report sometime in 2007 that Ty cheated on Bock with a stripper. This was probably the lowest point in their relationship, however, they were still able to patch things up and keep moving.

More so, Ty was diagnosed with Attention Deficit Hyperactive Disorder (ADHD) and symptoms of the disorder includes low frustration tolerance, poor planning, impulsiveness, disorganization, and problem prioritizing, and more. The truth is that each of these behavioral traits would otherwise have worked directly against any relationship – even Yvonne Pennington, Ty’s mother, admitted that her son had always been a rambunctious fellow.

So much more about the couple has remained rather hidden as they are notoriously private. However, according to some reports, the two have quarantined themselves in California during the Covid-19 pandemic together with Yvonne, Ty’s mother.

Andrea Bock’s Path to Becoming Famous 

After her failed attempt at becoming an actress, Andrea has not made any strong effort at gaining fame. Instead, she has tried as much as possible to remain hidden from the media and spotlight.

She came by fame thanks to her longtime relationship with Ty Pennington. Even at that, she has still ensured that she keeps her life as private as possible.

Apart from the fame that has come her way thanks to the relationship, Andrea has also gained fortune most especially for her professional work with the celebrity TV host. Having worked as a celebrity manager for years and having moved from managing Pennington to being his lover, one expects she has gathered a sizable net worth.

She is estimated to have a net worth of $500,000. Although this is fair enough, it is still far behind the net worth of her lover which has been estimated at a massive $10 million. Ty made his fortune from his career on TV, something he started in 1995. He has also been involved in a lot of other things including modeling, Something he did a long time ago. He has featured in both print and TV ads for brands such as Swatch, Sprite, Levi’s. Diet Coke, Macy’s, and Bayer among others.
