Actor Adam Rodriguez, best known as Eric Delko on the highly-acclaimed “CSI: Miami,” has been in a very private relationship with model Grace Gail for years.
Even though Adam’s wife is a beautiful model, she prefers to live her life away from the spotlight. Yet, here are nine facts about Grace Gail that will make you appreciate her relationship with the “Criminal Minds’ star.

Adam’s career in the entertainment industry began in 1997 when he portrayed a police officer on the TV show “NYPD.” From that point on, he kept getting roles in similar projects, including “Brooklyn South,” and “Roswell.”
His breakthrough role, however, came in 2002, when he landed the part of Eric Delko on “CSI: Miami.” Starting in 2016, Adam has been working on “Criminal Minds,” portraying Luke Alvez.
Even though Adam Rodriguez was born in Yonkers, New York, his parents were born in Latin America.
Ramon Rodriguez, the actor’s father, is of half Puerto Rican and half Cuban descent. Adam’s mother, Janet, is of Puerto Rican ancestry.
Vanessa Rodriguez Spencer, Adam’s sister, has been involved in the film business. However, not in her brother’s area as she frequently works in the casting department. So far, she has participated in “The Call,” “Last Holiday,” and “Lycan.”
At the moment, she is married to writer and comedian Chris Spencer. They have been together since 2006 and have two children.
The model’s dad is none other than Detroit-born actor Max Gail, best known for portraying Detective Stan “Wojo” Wojciehowicz on “Barney Miller” between 1975 and 1982.
Grace’s father, who was nominated to two Primetime Emmy Awards, married his second wife Nan Harris in 1989. They had two children together, Maxwell and Grace Gail.
Since both Adam and Grace have chosen to keep most of the details of their relationship away from the limelight, it is unclear when the couple started dating.
What we know, though, is that they welcomed their first child, daughter Frankie Elle Rodriguez, back in 2014, a couple of years before tying the knot.
After dating for a few years and having a child, the couple finally decided to walk down the aisle in a ceremony held in Tuscany, Italy, on May 2, 2016.
According to People, the event took place at Borgo Pignano, a 750-acre hilltop estate. A few days before the actual wedding, the bride, groom, and some guests enjoyed sightseeing in Florence and Siena.
After welcoming their first child, things have been moving rather quickly in the Rodriguez household. In January 2017, not even nine months after walking down the aisle, Adam Rodriguez’s wife welcomed their second child.
The actor made the big announcement during a Facebook Live interview from the People’s Choice Awards red carpet, saying that his older daughter Frankie loved to be a big sister.
During an interview with Parents, the actor confessed that his then-only daughter was being raised in an environment filled with love and other family members, just like he did.
He admitted, though, that Frankie has been able to spend “a lot more time” with her parents than he did because he worked hard to achieve success in his career. Now that he is a family man, he wants to spend as much time with them as possible.
Thanks to all the previously mentioned work that Adam has done, he and his wife are in a good position financially.
Nowadays, Adam Rodriguez’s net worth is estimated at $16 million. He is still portraying Luke Alvez on “Criminal Minds” and has also directed the episodes “Last Gasp” and “Ashley.”
