Who is Hollie Strano’s ex-husband, Brian Toohig?

Hollie Strano, who has been married twice, had her first marriage to Brian Toohig.

Due to not much being known of the former couple’s love story, they are believed to have met back in high school as they both attended Notre Dame Cathedral Latin School and Walsh Jesuit High School, where they shared a unique bond.

Their relationship evolved from a young age, starting when Hollie was just 15 years old.

Per Sarkariexam, Toohig and Strano tied the knot in 2008.

Per the publication, the duo’s marriage only lasted for three years as they divorced in 2011 due to challenges in their marriage and individual differences. However, the outlet failed to mention the exact reason for their split.

Who is Alex Giangreco, Hollie Strano’s second husband?

Three years following her first marriage and first divorce, Strano met mixologist Alex Giangreco, who would become her second husband.

Hollie and Alex first crossed paths during her vacation in Fort Lauderdale in 2010.

Alex proposed to Hollie with an elaborate oval diamond ring encircled by smaller round diamonds set in a platinum band. On June 15, 2014, the couple exchanged vows and stayed as a married couple for a little over 7 years.

Hollie’s marriage to Giangreco also faced challenges and in May 2017, she took to her X account (formerly Twitter) to announce that they had separated.

In light of this, she decided to revert to her maiden name, Hollie Strano. The challenges she encountered in her marital relationships took a toll on Hollie, leading her into a state of depression. Despite her struggles, she maintained a steadfast focus on supporting her children through this transition, underscoring the significance of her role as a mother.
