American artist Alix Bailey is renowned for her imaginative portraiture. She gained further notoriety as Louis C.K.’s wife.

Bailey was born on February 3, 1967, in Washington, D.C. She most likely learned the craft from her parents, William Bailey and Sandra Stone, both of whom were painters.

She was raised in New Haven, Connecticut, together with her brother Ford.

The family frequently traveled to Italy.

Alix Bailey’s Education

Her early schooling up to and including high school is not well-known.

Bailey, however, is well-read in the arts, and she made the decision to devote her entire life to painting from the beginning.

She studied painting at Vermont’s Bennington College, a liberal arts college, where she was enrolled.

Bailey then pursued a Master’s in Fine Arts at Indiana University after that.

She studied at the university with well-known painters and artists including Sidney Tillim and Pat Adams.

How she met and married Louis C.K

At a New Year’s Eve celebration in Boston, Alix met Louis.

At the occasion, Louis had become very inebriated and had absurdly proposed to Alix only five minutes after meeting her.

The latter didn’t do anything but mock him.

However, they eventually crossed paths again through a mutual acquaintance fifteen years later, and this time CK proposed to her without hesitation.

She affirmed it this time. They began dating, and in 1995 they got married.

Louis C.K. and Alix Bailey met when they were both 18 years old in 1986.

It happened during the Boston New Year’s Eve celebration.

According to the legend, Bailey was only asked to marry by an extremely inebriated Louis five minutes later, which caused much hilarity.

But it seemed to be the end of the matter after that.

But as luck would have it, they reconnected through a friend of theirs almost ten years later.

Before being married in 1995, they were in a long-term relationship.

Kitty Szekely, born on March 22, 2002, and Mary Louise Szekely, born three years later, in 2005, were the couple’s two lucky daughters.

However, they divorced in 2008 after their marriage broke down shortly after the birth of their second child.

They said that despite attending marriage counseling, they could no longer make each other happy.

The couple had amicable conditions for their divorce, and they share custody of their daughters.

In reality, eight years after their divorce, the two bought a home together in Greenwich, New York, for over $500,000 in 2016.

There, Bailey resides with their kids.
