Who is Emily Henry's husband?

Emily Henry's husband's name is not currently known to the public. In a March 2023 interview with Vulture, Emily did reveal how she and her husband met. She notes she was 18, and he was a touring musician who had arrived in Cincinnati. The pair began a relationship when she went to college and did long-distance for a while before Emily moved back home.

She reflected, "We met when we were babies, but we dated for a long time before we got married. I highly advise it because we were totally different people from when we started dating."

Emily added, "It’s so great to have a partner where we go to opposite ends of the house and just work all day long and leave each other alone and then afterward be like, ‘And now we can pick out what we’re going to watch or what board game we’re going to play.'"

Here are Emily Henry's books, in order.

Like many authors, rather than creating a series, Emily often writes standalone books so readers can better access her writing. That said, Emily began her writing career with Young Adult novels, starting with The Love That Split the World in 2016, A Million Junes in 2017, When the Sky Fell on Splendor in 2019, and Hello Girls also in 2019, co-written with author Brittany Cavallaro.

In 2020, Emily pivoted to adult romance, first with Beach Read, then in 2021 with People We Meet on Vacation, Book Lovers in 2022, and Happy Place in 2023.

Fans are excited to see where Emily's writing takes her next!
