Scott Foley's several television and film roles have helped him become a household name in Hollywood. Amid his popularity, his marriage to his equally famous wife remains strong to this day. Meet Scott Foley’s wife, Marika Domińczyk.


Scott Foley, who turns 50 on July 15, 2022, shot to fame in several hit television series, including "The Unit," "Scandal," "House," "Scrubs," "Dawson's Creek," and "Grey's Anatomy." He has also excelled in other fields, such as directing and screenwriting.

The same could be said about Foley's romantic life, which flourished alongside his acting career. He dated actress Jennifer Garner, but his life changed after meeting Marika Domińczyk.

Domińczyk was born on July 7, 1980, in Kielce, Swietokrzyskie, Poland, and relocated to Brooklyn, New York, when she was only three years old. She moved to Brooklyn, New York, with her parents and two sisters, Veronika and Dagmara.

Foley's wife is no stranger to the entertainment industry. She is an actress best known for several films, such as "The 40-Year-Old Virgin" and the "Heist." She also appeared in the critically acclaimed series "Grey's Anatomy" with her husband.

From 2016 through 2019, Domińczyk played Dr. Eliza Minnick in the medical drama series starring actors Ellen Pompeo, Patrick Dempsey, and Sandra Oh. Meanwhile, Foley played a hospital patient.


Fans of the medical drama voiced their displeasure with Domińczyk's character, but the Polish actress took their criticisms and reactions to her role with aplomb. She said:

"I'm happy for the big kind of reaction because who wants to go on a show and be quiet and just part of the scenery? It's nice to go and get your hands dirty and do stuff. "


Domińczyk recognized the show's legendary reputation and expressed gratitude for its massive fan base. Despite viewers' dissatisfaction with her role, she was thankful for being a part of one of the greatest shows ever.

She and Foley did not only appear in the medical drama. They starred in an episode of ABC's drama-comedy series "Whisky Cavalier." Foley portrayed FBI super-agent Will Chase while his wife played a mercenary named Tina Marek.



The couple's sweet beginning was noteworthy. In a 2019 PeopleTV interview, Foley revealed he met Domińczyk through her older sister, Dagmara, with whom he previously worked in a Broadway production in New York.

Domińczyk recalled how Dagmara played a "match-maker" because the latter insisted that she and Foley looked good together. However, Dagmara first doubted whether the pair would click together because Domińczyk was 23 and the actor was 31.

The age difference, however, did not prevent the lovely duo from seeing one other. While it took Foley a bit to make the first move since he sought Dagmara's approval before asking for a date, Domińczyk directly asked him out for a date.


Both Domińczyk and Foley grew inseparable. In an interview on "The Ellen Degeneres Show," Foley revealed the details of his unusual marriage proposal to his wife. He said while Domińczyk was driving the car, he started a fight. He added:

"I didn't have a plan, so I picked a fight, right? I got her all riled up, and I said, 'Why are you with me? We've been together for four years. I'm not gonna marry you. I'm a lot older than you.'"

He added that he considered cheating on her. Unaware that it was part of his marriage proposal, While Foley took a while for Dagmara's approval before asking for a date, Domiczyk reached out to him directly and asked him out on a date.


Foley and Domińczyk married in June 2007, following a seven-month engagement. They have been together for 15 years. She reflected on when they first began dating and having a family of their own and said, "it's like a fairy tale."

Foley famously dated Jennifer Garner, and Domińczyk is well aware of their previous romance. Foley and Garner met on the set of "Felicity." They got married in 2000 but separated three years later.

Garner and Foley divorced in 2004. In the interview with Andy Cohen on SiriusXM, Foley revealed that he does not keep in contact with his ex-wife. They do, however, remain civil with one another.



For Foley and Domińczyk, becoming parents has been a rewarding and life-changing experience. They are the proud parents of three children: Keller Aleksander, Malina Jean, and Konrad.

Malina Jean was born in 2009, and their second son, Keller Aleksander, was born in 2012. Domińczyk and her husband welcomed their youngest son, Konrad, in 2014. Since having kids, Foley noted that their morning routine was quite a mess.


Foley shared that one of his children would often be in bed with him when he woke up early. The mornings would be chaotic since he and his wife had to feed the kids while also getting themselves ready for the day.

Although their home seems in disarray, the proud parents relish every moment spent with their energetic children. They all bond together by cooking good meals and strolling around their neighborhood. Their yard is one of their favorite places to hang out at home.

Foley raved that home is where he invests his time and money, while his efforts are in his heart. He also spoke highly of his wife, saying that he feels a sense of comfort and familiarity with his wife.

Domińczyk added that she and her husband are like true friends in the form of husband and wife. "It's really a warm feeling to know that I got a person," Foley added.
