The 80's lunch

Billy Marries His Uptown Girl


Billy Joel married his second wife, model Christie Brinkley, on the 23rd of March 1985, after meeting her in '83.

The wedding was held on a yacht on The Hudson River and celebrity guests included Paul Simon and members of the band Stray Cats.

Their daughter Alex Ray was born in December '85.

Her middle name Ray came from one of Billy's musical idols Ray Charles.

Christie appeared in a number of Billy's videos including Uptown Girl, Keeping The Faith & A Matter Of Trust.  

Like so many hollywood marriages, Billy and Christie had to say goodbye to their union in 1994.

Billy married for a third and fourth time after his celebrity marriage ended and he had a further two children with his current wife Alexis.
