Brad Garrett Shares Great Chemistry with His Fiancée, despite People Calling Them Out for Their Age-Difference
Brad Garrett, famous as a stand-up comedian and actor, has been long relishing his personal life with his fiancée IsaBeall Quella.
Despite the 24-year-age difference between the couple (the comedian being the senior), they have managed to form an unbreakable bond and understanding, which has kept their relationship going.
In May 2015, speaking to Entertainment Tonight, the comedian even jokingly addressed the couple’s 24-year age difference: "I'm with someone now who's a little young. We had an AMBER Alert the other night when we went to the movies."
He also admitted his friends tease the couple, saying:
[Don] Rickles walks up to the table and he looks at her and he looks at me and he goes, '12? 13 maybe, Brad?' And then he looks at her and goes, 'You being kidnapped, honey? Blink if you're being kidnapped.' I immediately put her in a timeout.
Going back in time, the two started seeing each other quietly in 2008. Seven years down the lane, on December 27, 2015, Garrett proposed Quella in the Winston Churchill suite at New York’s Waldorf Astoria.
His proposal was complemented by singer/songwriter Marc Cohn, who played the couple’s favorite songs on piano.
After the engagement, the couple walked into many events and public places together, where the lifestyle and travel blogger was snapped flaunting her enormous diamond engagement ring. In one such instance, the diva was captured blazing her ring while the couple was vacationing in Tremezzo, Italy, in November 2016.

In September 2016, the Everybody Loves Raymond star also took his fiancée to the Emmys, and together, they walked the red carpet. After the event, Quella took to Twitter to express: “So grateful to have had this amazing, kind, handsome man as my date last night.”
All that being said, both Garrett and Quella have not shed light on their plans to get married.
Garrett's Previous Relationship
Prior to his relationship with Quella, Garrett was married to Jill Diven, a former cocktail waitress in Las Vegas, from 1999 to 2007.
Garrett had proposed Diven on the set of Everybody Loves Raymond in August 1998 in front of his castmates and crew. The following year, they got hitched. But in April 2006, they decided to part ways and filed for divorce. Their divorce was finalized in November 2007 with an agreement to share joint legal and physical custody of their children.
The actor also agreed to pay $20,000 and $35,000 per month in child support and spousal support, respectively.
After the divorce, the actor's ex-wife Diven told People:
We both realized we’re best friends, and we’re always going to be best friends. People grow apart. We could do the ‘he said-she said’ thing, but that’s not us.
Together the former couple had two kids, Maxwell Bradley Garrett, 22, and Hope Violet Garrett, 21.
The actor shares a good bond with his children. He is often seen with his children and his partner Quella on Instagram.
