Gordon Thornton is relatively less involved with social media. He could be spotted only on Facebook where he occasionally shared some of his family moments. Then again, he would feature in Mia’s Instagram account where she is a ‘Mrs. Mia Thornton.’
Gordon And Mia Thornton: Wedding, Kid
Gordon and Mia Thornton tied the knots on March 18, 2012. Nine years into the marriage and Mia still believed that she would find Gordon sooner and love him longer had she been able to turn back the clock.
Time and again, she pointed that their big age gap (of 32 years) did not matter.
Describing her union with the ”Ol Man” unbreakable, Mia keeps expressing the likes of … on social media, now and then.
“I am happily married to this quote Y’all may not understand how or why but it’s not your place to seek understanding. No I didn’t need to post an extra long explanation as to why we love each other on Valentines Day…Why? Because we celebrate our love everyday!”
They have been together since 2007.
In a March 18, 2021 – Instagram post, Mia hinted Gordon nearly lost his life. Grateful for his recovering health, she had written this to a pic of them:
“Then just like that God has a way to pull you back to your knees. The thought of losing my BEST-FRIEND brought on a whole new perception of life. I’m Truly thankful that you are getting stronger with each passing hour. I promise to hold your hand…Forever & Always~ MrsMiaThornton”
Otherwise, Gordon and Mia seem to be doing just fine living just the life they imagined with their kids.
Whenever (i.e. on rare occasions) Mia mentions her kids or husband on her sharings on social media, she makes it obvious just how much she is fond of them all.
Together, they are parents to their three young kids Joshua, Jeremiah, and Juliana while Gordon alone has a daughter from a previous relationship.
Her name is Debrecia Fonville. Now living in Elizabeth City, just like her dad, she is a regional talent acquisitions specialist at Randstad.
Gordon Thornton Ex-Wife
Before Mia, Gordon Thornton was married to his ex-wife Deborah Poole. She is a chaplain at Community Home Care and Hospice. Her Facebook bio also mentioned her as a Registered Nurse at the College of The Albemarle and a former admissions coordinator at Albemarle Home Care.
Besides, Deborah is from Elizabeth City, North Carolina, and never really left the area. Her relationship status reads ‘single’ and it was Dec. in 2016 the last time she updated her Facebook.
Also, for now, one could not tell if she is Gordon’s eldest daughter Debrecia’s mother.
If only judging from the names ‘Deborah’ and ‘Debrecia’, it seems possible that they are a mother-daughter pair.
