It was March 13, 2019 and in the Meredith offices of People in New York City, a sharply-dressed, white-haired male sat on a couch casually talking to the male and female hosts of the celebrity magazine’s People Now broadcast who were sat directly opposite him. The man in question was Jay Leno, the veteran comedian and long-time TV host of the late-night comedy and chat institution The Tonight Show. But little did the funnyman know that what he would reveal to them about his enduring, childless marriage would cause a stir online.
Jay and Mavis Leno have been one of showbiz’s strongest and most reliable couples for as long as they have been married – almost 40 years now. The pair have been often photographed arm-in-arm whenever Leno has attended glitzy award shows or events. A quick glance at the photos taken of them from down the years appears to show a couple very much in love throughout.
