He was born Gary Owens in Cincinnati, Ohio, to Barb and Gary Owens.

Gary Owen has Embraced a New Beginning with his Fiancée Brianna Johnson Despite Previous Marriage Conclusion

Gary Owen, who divorced his ex-wife, is engaged to Brianna Johnson, a registered nurse at Memorial Hermann Health.

They were already engaged by February 2023, as revealed by a photo on Brianna’s Instagram where she can be seen flashing her diamond ring.

Previously, comedian Gary was in a relationship with his ex-wife, Kenya Duke, for nearly 25 years before their divorce.
