Inside Joey Lawrence's Dating History

Joey Lawrence became a teen heartthrob in the '90s when he starred on television shows like "Blossom" and "Brotherly Love" (via IMDb). Since that time he's gone on to star on shows like the nostalgic "Melissa & Joey." Lawrence began his career at an early age, earning roles in movies like "Summer Rental," alongside the legendary John Candy. He's also appeared in movies such as "Jumping Ship," "Money Plane," "Horse Sense," and "Hitched for the Holidays." Lawrence is also a known musician. He's released three albums (as of this writing), including a self-titled debut in 1993 and "Soulmates" in 1997, per AllMusic. He also recently released a brand new single titled "Turtle" (via Spotify).

"Those first two records ... Well, you know, the first album sold millions of records. But this is a very different world now. It's about downloads and all this stuff. But this new single is doing great. And I'm putting together a deal right now, in a much more formal way, with a label to actually release music in an official manner again. So it's kind of exciting that it came out of all these little independent releases doing so well, and that there's a real market for it. It's kind of cool," Lawrence told Decider earlier this month.

While Lawrence has been busy working on his career, he's also had a very active personal life. The actor has dated some of the most beautiful women in Hollywood over the years.

Joey Lawrence has been married twice

According to FamousFix, Joey Lawrence has had a number of beautiful women on his arm over the years. The actor previously dated "Life Goes On" star Kellie Martin, as well as fellow teen icon Keri Russell in 1994. Russell was best known for her roles on "The Mickey Mouse Club" and then "Felicity" before moving on to other projects such as "The Americans" and "Waitress" (via IMDb). In late 1995, Lawrence was linked to "Party of Five" actor Jennifer Love Hewitt. However, the couple split a few months later. Lawrence was also rumored to have been romantic with former "Grey's Anatomy" star Katherine Heigl. In 1999, Kim Kardashian stunned fans when she admitted that she went on a few dates with Lawrence.

In 2002, Lawrence married Michelle Vella, but called it quits just three years later, per The Sun. Lawrence later met Chandie Yawn-Nelson and the pair tied the knot in 2005. The duo welcomed two daughters together, Charleston and Liberty. They were together for 15 years before filing for divorce in 2020. Just one year after ending his second marriage, Lawrence announced that he was engaged to actor Samantha Cope (via Today). 

The pair met on the set of their upcoming Lifetime movie, and are currently figuring out their future wedding plans. "When you least expect [it,] amazing things happen and meeting her has just been really the greatest thing ever," the actor told Us Weekly of his future wife. It looks like the third time may be the charm for Lawrence as he looks to start fresh with his new leading lady.
