Who is Adan Canto’s wife?

Adan played a character with multiple entanglements on The Cleaning Lady, but his off-screen world was vastly different. The actor, who rose to fame as Sunspot in 2014’s X-Men: Days of Future Past, married Stephanie Lindquist in June 2017. The couple reportedly met while co-starring in the 2014 short film Before Tomorrow.

After their first movie together, Adan and Stephanie went on to work on other projects. In 2020, they created another short film, The Shot, which Adan directed and Stephanie wrote.

Stephanie is also a sculptor and has shared her work on her Instagram account.

After over a year of marital bliss, Adan and Stephanie expanded their family. In 2019, Stephanie became pregnant with the couple’s first child, Roman Alder.

“I feel immensely humbled and honored to have been given the blessing of Family,” Adan shared under a maternity photo of him and Stephanie. “I thank God for allowing my wife and I to have met in such an unlikely place and time. I thank him for her heart, mind, and spirit, that remind me daily of the man I strive to be. I thank him for the opportunity to raise a new soul with her, and to shape his mind with a solid foundation of Honor, Love, Strength, and Understanding.”

In May 2020, Adan posted Roman for the first time on Instagram. Adan and Stephanie went on to share multiple photos of their toddler and, in 2022, made another announcement. On March 12, Adan published a snap of him, Stephanie, and their second child, Eve. Unlike with Roman, the couple seemingly wanted to keep their new addition a secret until she was born.

“Welcome, Eve Josephine Canto!” Adan exclaimed on Instagram. “Thank you, Father, for the gift of Life…And for the most precious family, I could’ve ever dreamt to be worthy of.”

On Jan. 9, 2024, Stephanie posted a gorgeous photo of her and Adan with the sun shining behind them.

"'Do not lay up for yourselves treasures on earth, where moth and rust destroy and where thieves break in and steal; but lay up for yourselves treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust destroys and where thieves do not break in and steal. For where your treasure is, there your heart will be also.' Matthew 6:19-21," she wrote in the caption.

She concluded her post: "Forever my treasure Adan, see you soon 💔"
