Josh Blaylock’s Marriage To Johanna Braddy

Josh Blaylock was once happily married to actress Johanna Braddy, a Georgian native best known for playing minor and lead roles in projects like The Grudge 3 (2009) and Paranormal Activity 3 (2010). She most recently played the main role of Shelby Wyatt in the ABC series Quantico.

The duo, who were co-stars in the Video Game High School show, reportedly first crossed paths on the set of the web series early in 2012. They quickly established a romantic bond and a few months later, stepped things up a notch by tying the knot in November 2012.

Blaylock and Braddy were presumed to be a perfect match while their relationship lasted. However, after living together as man and wife for about two years, the pair went their separate ways in 2014. Their divorce was later finalized in early 2015. The marriage was a first for both parties and it did not produce any kids.

What Happened To Them?

Blaylock and Braddy broke many hearts when the actress confirmed their split on social media. The reason for their breakup has not been disclosed as they are yet to publicly address why they fell apart. But then, there are unconfirmed reports that the actors’ split was connected to infidelity on Johanna’s part.

It was also suggested in some quarters that the age difference between them was an issue. While this has not been authenticated in any way, we can confirm that Josh Blaylock is younger than his ex-wife. The actor was born in March 1990 while the actress was born in August 1987, a testament to their three-year age gap.

Has Josh Blaylock Found Love Again?

Following his divorce from Braddy, it was presumed that Josh Blaylock would be solely focusing on his profession and getting to the peak of his career. It was uncertain if the actor was open to finding love again in the near future and he was not romantically linked to anyone.

All that changed when Josh announced the birth of his son Charles Darton Blaylock on Instagram. He asserted that he’s proud of the boy and his mother. Based on what he said, it is fair to conclude he had been going out with the mother of his child. Practically nothing is known about the woman but one can tell that things are pretty serious between them.


On the other hand, his ex-wife Johanna Braddy has since moved on to another actor named Freddie Stroma. The pair dated for a while before taking their relationship to the next level with an engagement in 2016. Braddy and Stroma eventually exchanged marital vows a few months later in December 2016 and are still going strong.
