Wendi McLendon-Covey is known for her role as Beverly Goldberg, the mother from "The Goldbergs." Off-screen, the actress is also happily married, like her on-screen persona. 


"The Goldbergs" actress Wendi McLendon-Covey is happily married to her longtime husband, Greg Covey. However, unlike Beverly, McLendon-Covey does not have any children.

After meeting as students at a LA community college, the couple began dating and later married. In August 2021, McLendon-Covey and her husband celebrated their 25th wedding anniversary.

The "Bridesmaids" actress shared a gorgeous throwback picture of herself and Covey from their wedding day. The newlyweds looked utterly in love wearing their all-white wedding outfits. McLendon-Covey captioned the photo:

"25 years ago today. Happy anniversary to my whole entire heart, @jivemiguel70!"

McLendon-Covey regularly shares her love for her husband and their lives on Instagram. She also is not afraid to show themselves being their authentic selves and enjoying life. 


For their 23rd anniversary, McLendon-Covey shared a photo of them eating tortilla chips and explained that because it was her only off day in two weeks, they kept their celebration causal with dinner at her favorite taco place. 

The "Reno 911" star is not the only spouse sharing the love online as Covey, a producer for "Janeane From Des Moines" and "Celebrity Family Feud," also highlights his wife on his Instagram especially for milestones such as birthdays. 


For her birthday in 2019, Covey shared an adorable photo of his "best friend" snuggling with one of their cats. In the caption, he wished his wife a happy birthday and described her as:

"...@wendi_mclendon_covey, the love of my life, the woman who motivates me to get up in the morning and my best friend. I love you so much and here's to another 50 years!"

Covey seems to be one of McLendon-Covey's biggest supporters. During an interview with ABC 7 News, the "Blended" actress credited her husband for continuously believing her in until she made it big. 


McLendon-Covey's career only became financially successful after her role on "The Goldbergs." Before the part, Covey was the only one who encouraged and stood behind McLendon-Covey.

Even her parents thought showbusiness was the wrong career pathway. However, eventually, her parents did realize that they were wrong, but it was not until McLendon-Covey was in her forties. 


Fortunately, Covey has been a constant support. "The Single Moms Club" actress knows how lucky she is to have her caring and devoted husband by her side and does not plan to let go of him as she has "[her] claws in that man."

Although her career took a while to get off the ground, McLendon-Covey believes there is a lesson in that for everyone; no matter how many no's someone gets, even from those close, you have to accept it and keep moving forward.

After her breakout roles in the female comedy "Bridesmaid" and the family sitcom, "The Goldbergs," McLendon-Covey worked on a variety of projects including, "Hello, My Name is Doris,"  "Think Like A Man Too," and "Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar."
