Adelfa Marr's husband, Manny Montana, has been in the eye of the storm after his "Good Girls" co-star Retta indirectly blamed him for the show's cancelation.


In late July 2022, Retta appeared on "Live with Kelly and Ryan" to share why "Good Girls" was canceled after four seasons, and she said one person "ruined it" for everyone. It is essential to remark that Montana allegedly refused to take a pay cut for season five.

He and Christina Hendricks supposedly had an unhealthy relationship, which might have influenced his decision. Montana has not addressed the topic, but people have been wondering about his personal life and wife, Adelfa Marr.

Although Adelfa Marr is married to an up-and-coming Hollywood actor, she avoids attracting media attention and shares little-to-no information about her personal life with the public.

Manny Montana's wife is an only child born on August 3. She describes herself on her Instagram account as a mental health advocate and coach who speaks two languages, English and Spanish (her first language).

Most information about Marr comes from her Instagram. Besides loving jewelry, sneakers, and fashion, cooking is her favorite hobby as she would cook everything and share it with everyone.


Marr's career as a coach has been quite successful. She has over 79,000 Instagram followers and has written for different websites, including 21Ninety (since 2018), INKind.life, and Byrdie. She covers topics from race and motherhood to sex and self-care.

She is an activist and outspoken about racism and feminism. However, the project Marr is probably proudest of is her self-titled website, where she offers online sessions to help others practice self-care and live healthier lives.


Marr's website states that she has a background in psychology and a deep interest in spirituality, so she created her coaching method to help her clients find happiness.

It all started as her journey to healing from anxiety, depression, and trauma due to a past assault. Eventually, Adelfa Marr discovered ways to be at peace with her life and grow into her "emotional awareness and intelligence."

When Montana talks about Marr, people notice how much he loves and appreciates her.


Manny Montana might avoid sharing much of his personal life online, but when he talks about Marr, he goes above and beyond. In October 2020, he shared photos of Marr on Instagram and described her as his best friend, partner, and mother of their child.

He added that Marr helps multiple people through challenging times and is the best mom and funniest woman on earth.



Adelfa Marr might not be an actress, but she has one acting credit. In 2019, she portrayed Dylan in "Good Girls," the TV series that shot her husband into stardom.

Dylan is the woman Rio (Manny Montana) hugs and kisses to make Beth (Christina Hendricks) jealous. Marr's appearance on the show was brief, but it meant a lot. She posted about it on Instagram and wrote:

"Such a beautiful, happy, and memorable day with my amazingly talented husband. This one is definitely for the books. […] Thanks for making me the happiest girl to walk this earth."



Marr and Montana had not shared when and how they met. We know they tied the knot in 2016 and are raising a son, but the boy's name and birthday are also unknown.

The couple has posted a few photos of their child on social media, but they always cover his face with an emoji to protect his privacy.

Montana admitted to having a "great time" as a dad as he had never felt that love. He acknowledged it might sound like a cliché, but he didn't know what true love was until welcoming his son.


It is not like he ignores how tiring it can get, though. However, knowing that his son is funny, loving, and always wants to laugh and be around him makes up for all the energy being a parent requires. One thing is clear: the kid lives in a loving environment.

When Montana talks about Marr, people notice how much he loves and appreciates her. After describing her as his rock, the actor said people often wish to find the ideal marriage but unconsciously think it might never happen.

With Marr, he found that. Montana credited her for sacrificing "so much" for him and pointed out that they do everything together. Like his "Good Girls" character, Montana is all about protecting his family.


Adelfa Marr has also gushed about their son and relationship. She explained she always wanted to be a mom due to the "special" bond she and her parents have.

The life coach added that being a mom was one of the best and most challenging and life-changing experiences in her life, but it made her feel "blessed beyond belief." Marr and Montana promise to be their best friends, so they fight for one another.



Born on September 26, 1983, in Long Beach, California, Manny Montana graduated from Jordan High School in Long Beach and earned a football scholarship at Cal State University. Unfortunately, multiple arm injuries crushed his sports dream.

After graduating in 2006, he started taking acting gigs in student films and noticed he was good at it, so she began taking acting lessons.


His foray into the entertainment industry dates back to the late 2000s when he landed minor roles in "East LA," "ER," and "Cold Case." He started attracting people's attention in 2013 with his outstanding portrayal of Agent Johnny Tuturro in "Graceland."

After another successful run in "Conviction" from 2016 to 2017, he landed the part of Rio in "Good Girls" and became a star. In June 2022, he was announced as a cast member of the upcoming Disney+ series "Ironheart," part of the Marvel Cinematic Universe.
