Andrea Evans’ husband, Stephen G. Rodriguez, is a lawyer in Los Angeles.

On January 10, 1998, Andrea married her second husband, Stephen G. Rodriguez. Before then, she was briefly married to One Life to Live co-star Wayne Massey in 1981. The news of Andrea’s death was first confirmed to major outlets on July 10 by Andrea’s manager, Nick Leicht. While breaking the news, Andrea’s husband shared his feelings with her fans.

“Andrea was a remarkable individual, cherished by all who knew her,” he said in a statement to various news outlets (via PEOPLE). “Her unwavering strength, positivity, and indomitable spirit inspired us every step of the way throughout her fearless fight against this relentless disease.

“She faced the challenges with grace, resilience, and an enduring love for life. Andrea and I spent 30+ years together. She was a great wife and mother. She was my ROCK. Cancer killed Andrea, but it did not kill her spirit. That spirit is alive and well and lives on in each one of us, whom she touched.”

Little is known about their marriage since Andrea and Stephen kept their personal lives relatively private compared to other stars. Unlike Andrea, Stephen is not an actor. He’s worked as a lawyer his entire adult life and now owns his own practice, Stephen G. Rodriguez & Partners.

Stephen is a criminal defense lawyer who has “devoted his career to defending people.” He completed his undergrad at the University of Texas at Austin before he went to law school at Loyola Law School in Los Angeles. His website says, “Stephen is proud of what he does and the role he plays as an advocate for the accused. He defends his clients vigorously and without apology. He is driven by a genuine desire to make a positive impact on the lives of his clients.”

Andrea Evans and her husband, Stephen, adopted their daughter in 2004.

Amidst his high-profile law career, Stephen and Andrea decided to adopt a daughter in 2004. Little is known about why they chose to adopt, but Kylie is as much a daughter to them as a biological child would be. Kylie, now 19 years old, mourned the loss of her mother in a separate statement:

“At just 19 years old, my world has been forever changed, and words cannot adequately convey the depth of my sadness. My mom was my best friend … Her vibrant spirit, infectious laughter, and boundless love for life left a mark on all who were fortunate enough to know her … We held hands until the very end.”

Just over a year ago, Kylie and Andrea got matching tattoos to celebrate Kylie’s 18th birthday. Andrea also shared a pic celebrating her daughter’s high school graduation, and would often share photos of the two of them attending events together. In addition to her daughter, Andrea appeared to be very close to her nephew, 30-year-old musician Jeff Pridgen.

Andrea is survived by her husband, daughter, nephew, and several other extended family members. Our condolences go out to her family, friends, and fans.
