Stacey Weitzman is a former American actress who is known for her happy marriage and life alongside the love of her life called Henry Winkler.
Henry Winkler is a worldwide known star who got his fame through a very attractive and cool character of Phones, often names Fonzie, in a successful TV series which has won multiple awards, titled „Happy Days”.
This series made its peak in the 70s and that is around the time this couple met for the first time and since then, Stacey is by Henry’s side.
The two of them were very exposed in the media and they spend a bunch of their time together.
Henry’s loving wife Stacey Weitzman was born on November 15th, 1947 in one of the most popular cities in the United States, Los Angeles.
She says that being in LA brought her a lot of life changes that she could not have found anywhere else, and that’s why she is very happy about them!
Her birth name is Stacey Cooper Furstman and she was raised in a happy and stable home surrounded by her family and her loving parents.
Her mother was a nurse and used to work long hours but she always found time for Stacey and the two of them were very close all of their life. The relationship they have has significantly changed both of their lives and they grew together as people.
Stacey’s father was an office worker and although he wasn’t a man who liked to show a lot of emotion, Stacey could always rely on him to help her for anything or even to get her out of trouble if she fell in one.
Her parents are both Americans, so she herself has American citizenship from her birth as well. Stacey was a very good student and had no problem in finishing her high school education in the local school in her neighborhood.
After she graduated from high school, she enrolled at the University of North Carolina, especially because her parents wanted her to have a better education. She was very thankful for the chances she has gotten in life and was always looking forward to being in that growing state of mind.
She graduated from the college and started thinking about her new career, so she decided to move to New York to try to find a better job and to move away from her family because she wanted to be more independent. She managed to gain a few roles, but she never created a serious acting career.
Stacey appeared in the drama movies called „Safe”, filmed in 1995, where she was an intern. She said that meeting the people on set was the most rewarding experience she could have gotten and that’s why she moved on in her career.
In 2001, she appeared in a TV series titled „As told”, in which she played the role of a woman called Ginger.
Stacey’s life in New York was very interesting when she was a young woman, and since she was a very beautiful redhead, many men wanted to be in a relationship with her.
One of them was her first husband Howard Weitzman, to whom she got married in 1969.
Howard Weitzman is a very known person in New York since he was a successful entertainment lawyer who represented celebrities a lot of times throughout his career. This helped her a bit in her career as well, but she doesn’t like to live in his shadow and she always feels bad whenever this happens.
Howard was also financially independent so he gave Stacey the safeness she was longing for. They’re marriage brought life to their first son Jed Weitzman, who also became a successful manager and the owner of his agency. Jed has represented various known names such as Stephen Colbert and Adam Sandler.
He’s considered as one oft he best contract negotiators there is, so he was often hired by known stars who wanted their contracts not only to be fair but also to be very lucrative for them.
After her marriage with Howard failed, due to their big differences and the fact that Stacey felt very lonely since Howard was often away for business trips, she decided to divorce him in 1976.
After that, she met Henry Winkler in a clothing store where he wanted to buy a new coat and asked her for her opinion. The two of them always joke around and tell this story to interviewers.
She was happy to help him and after the two of them started talking, their relationship started to blossom. She, of course, knew who Henry was at that time but she had never imagined that he would ask her out and would be interested in her.
They started dating seriously after they realized that they have so many things in common. They got engaged a few years later. Their wedding occurred in May 1978 in a synagogue in New York City and they were both very happy with the decision to spend their life together.
It seems like they are one of the rare ones to take their vows seriously because they are still together and it has been over 40 years of marriage. The marriage of this awesome couple is considered to be one of the longest in the whole city of LA.
In 1980, two years after they got married, Stacey gave birth to their beautiful daughter Zoey Emily with whom she is very close. Three years after Zoey’s birth, she gave birth to her second son whose name is Macs. He was born in August 1983.
Stacey’s children are very honest and hardworking people so she is very proud of them and the way she raised them to be such great people. She says that she couldn’t have asked for better kids and she’s still not entirely sure how she managed to raise them like that.
Her daughter Zoey Emily likes children very much so she decided to take the career of a preschool teacher, and through her work make an effect on young children’s characters. She is teaching them moral values and the importance of being creative.
Stacey’s son Macs decided to follow his father’s footsteps and enter the world of the film industry. However, not like an actor like his dad, but as a screenwriter and a TV director. His most notable director’s work was made in 2010 when he directed a movie names ceremony with Uma Thurman and Michael Angarano in leading roles. This leads to making people’s positive opinions and he said that most of the time he was very happy to make his parents proud and to bring some glory to their name, just like they did to their parent’s names before.
He was also hired to direct one episode of a TV series called Crazy Ex-Girlfriend and this took place in 2017.
Stacey’s husband Henry is one of the most likable American TV stars and he became extremely popular through the character of Phonsie Fozarrelli from a successful series called Happy days.
TV viewers have a lot of respect for Henry and so do the critics: he has won three Emmy awards and two Golden Globe awards for his great acting skills and effort.
Not many of Stacey’s fans know that Henry started his career in a theatre and used to earn money by doing TV commercials. His role of Phonsie was the one to rise him to the stars and he played this role 1974 until 1985.
Henry is also a very respectable writer and an author who had published almost 20 books.
Henry is still acting and lately, he appeared in a popular HBO series called Barry.
Stacey’s latest work other than appearing in „The Touch”, was giving her voice to a character of „Muffin” in an animated TV series from 2001 called „As told by ginger”.
Stacey is a loving mother and wife and when her illness was discovered, the family was in a huge shock. She found out that she has breast cancer at the time when Zoe was still a college student.
Stacey immediately received treatment, which helped her beat the disease, but unfortunately, cancer reappeared after a few years, so she had to undergo another treatment one more time.
Stacey’s doctors realized that the only thing that can help her overcome the disease completely was to make a double mastectomy so she could stay cancer-free and be with her family for a very long time.
Stacey’s husband Henry is an avid fisherman who likes to spend time outdoors. Stacey loves to watch her husband fish and she often goes with him to Montana where he has his favorite fishing spot. Henry says that fly fishing keeps him calm and he compares it with all worries being washed away from his body.
Henry won an Emmy award for his role in Barry aired on HBO. Stacey came with him to the awards and they shared a few things about their marriage. Henry stated that he fell in love with her at first sight and that he knew from the beginning that they are going to be together for a long, long time.
The couple was so in love when they were going out that she moved to his apartment together with her son just a few weeks after they have met. Her son Jed was a 4-year old kid at that time and he was liking the new setting.
Stacey has five grandchildren and loves them very much. She says that being a grandparent is very fulfilling and that she enjoys every minute that she spends with her grandchildren. She is grateful that she has been given the chance to overcome her dangerous disease, so she could enjoy her family eve more.
Henry Winkler gave a big interview to the New York Times on his 70th birthday (in 2016) and spoke about his wife Stacey a lot. He said that she is also the one everyone must thank for because she helped him through his career and helped him write his New York Times best-seller children’s book called Here’s Hank.
He says that she is always by his side both in good and bad times. He said that the center of his relationship with Stacey is not in his heart or his brain, but in his ear, because he thinks that the main thing about being in a good relationship is that you want to be in it and that your partner must know that you hear what he says.
In May 2018, Harry and Stacey had celebrated their 40th wedding anniversary, which is a very huge number for a Hollywood couple.
