If you've ever watched The Young and the Restless, odds are that you're familiar with Courtney Hope. The actress, who has played Sally Spectra since November 2020, has since become integral to the show's success.
With that being said, for however many fans may recognize Courtney thanks to her role on The Young and the Restless, it's likely that not as many are as familiar with her personal life. So, what do we know about Courtney's supposed soon-to-be-ex husband? Keep reading for all of the known details regarding her current romantic status.
What do we know about her relationship with Chad Duell?
Less than a year after their February 2021 engagement, Courtney and General Hospital star Chad Duell officially got married. Their wedding took place on Oct. 23, 2021, in a beautiful outdoor ceremony hosted in Malibu.
When it came to their special day, the duo decided to go a different route than the traditional wedding setup, opting for a much more gothic theme.
For their wedding, Courtney donned a stunning red bridal gown fitted with lace, ruffles, and a matching veil. As for Chad's outfit, the actor sported a slim-fit all-red suit with various black details on the front. The event seemed to also have a "'til death" theme, with Courtney, Chad, and their guests posing in front of a red light.
"Thank you to everyone that came out last night to celebrate Chad and me. We love you all so much," Courtney wrote on Instagram at the time, accompanying some adorable photos of the couple. "Thank you guys for committing so hard to our goth theme! The amount of black nail polish, guy-liner, chokers, corsets, and canes were more than we could've asked for."
Beyond just their outfits, pretty much the entirety of the wedding's decor followed the gothic trend as well. The tables guests were seated at were covered in black floral cloths and had gold and black plates, cutlery, and chairs, and were sprinkled generously with red rose petals. The table seating chart came in the form of a massive black and red open coffin that had the names and corresponding tables of guests printed on the inside.
Aside from friends and family, a number of famous faces attended the couple's nuptials as well. This included The Bold and the Beautiful star Katherine Kelly as well as Courtney's The Young and the Restless co-stars Tracey Bregman and Hunter King.
Only two months after getting married, Courtney and Chad have called it quits.
In a shocking move that was announced by Soap Opera Digest on Dec. 14, 2021, Courtney and Chad have decided to quietly split only two months after getting married. No other details were shared by the publication, and neither star has spoken out about the divorce publicly as of yet.
This split marks Chad's second divorce and Courtney's first. Chad's first marriage to Taylor Novak came to an end after less than six months of being together back in 2012.
