Alex Honnold Married, Girlfriend, Wife
By his admission, Alex Honnold didn’t always perceive himself as the “relationship type.” His stance took a dramatic 180 when now-wife prospect Sanni McCandless entered the frame.
Alex met fellow rock climbing enthusiast and future girlfriend Sanni at one of his book-signings events. It was the Sanni who drew the first blood by slipping her digits to the world-renowned climber.
Following a couple of romantic dates, Alex and wife hopeful Sanni began dating exclusively. In the early stages of their relationship, the lovebirds’ romance went through a rough period.
Before the relationship, Alex never faced a near-death experience while on an expedition. When he commenced dating Sanni, he suffered multiple almost fatal accidents. As a result, the “Free Solo” star even contemplated breaking things off.
Despite the early setbacks, Alex and Sunni continued dating. As of November 2019, the lovebirds were still not married. Nor was there any word on when they would get engaged.
