After Ellie’s father’s death, her mother Katie found love with John Molner and went on to marry him in 2014 at her East Hampton home.
Even while Ellie was walking down the aisle to the music “Ashokan Farewell,” she couldn’t stop missing her father because it was his favorite music. But it seemed like a perfect way to honor him.
Talking about music, Ellie’s then 25-year-old sibling Caroline also performed Fleetwood Mac’s “Songbird” at the wedding. During which, Ellie both “laughed and cried.”
Her sister, Carrie Monahan (born: Jan 6, 1996) is a Columbia Journalism School alumni who went on to work as an associate producer at Ark Media. She is also a self-proclaimed “G-list celeb” who appeared on Hilary Duff’s float in the 2004 Macy’sThanksgiving Day parade.
