Jordan Knight is one of the versatile entertainers with a career in both music and acting. He gained wider recognition as a part of the popular boy band New Kids on the Block (NKOTB) in the late 1980s. But besides his professional life, Jordan Knight’s wife Evelyn Melendez has always been a subject of attention.
Along with the immense success, the distinguished artist also maintains a blissful marital life with his wife of 15 years. However, some tabloids report their relationship isn’t going well. Let’s find out if the couple is still married or not.
Take a look at their complete relationship timeline.
Who is Jordan Knight’s Wife? How long have they been married?
Knight and Evelyn Melendez exchanged their vows on 12th September 2004. The two walked down the aisle in a very low-key wedding ceremony in front of their family and friends.
Despite being a known figure in the entertainment world, the artist has kept every personal detail ultra-secret. Talking about Jordan Knight’s wife Evelyn, she has been in the limelight just for her high-profile relationship. Other than that, there is nothing more about women on the internet.
Is Jordan Knight still Married to Melendez?
There are several reports that tout the couple went on their separate ways but things seem to be a little different. First of all, neither Jordan nor his spouse Evelyn has confirmed the speculations. Secondly, as per Knight’s article published by Yahoo in 2019, the pair is still very much together. Furthermore, in a recent conversation with ET, the singer talked about his wedding and the song, ‘I’ll Be Loving You (Forever),’ which he performed at his nuptials. He stated,
“It was kind of impromptu. There was a piano on wheels and a friend of mine pushed it in and was like, ‘And, now Jordan’s going to sing, ‘I’ll Be Loving You (Forever)!’ He put me on the spot, so I sang it.”
Moreover, Jordan candidly mentioned how he feels the same rush every time he performs the song. He said, “I honestly feel the same way performing it now as I did then.”
Moreover, he was also proud to mention that his then-new wife fully enjoyed the song,
“She loved it. When I was singing, I was really feeling it and meaning it, so I think she knew that. We both cried and it was definitely a beautiful moment.”

After becoming a father, Knight had trouble juggling between his pop career and parental duties. In the meantime, the singer also had a bad drinking habit. He told that his then-girlfriend Evelyn strongly supported him and he was able to quit his addiction. He said,
My drinking was the symptom of a deeper problem. It eventually got so bad I couldn’t take it any more. I got sick and tired of feeling sick and tired, but Evelyn supported me all the way through.
In 2016, NKOTB MUSIC Warriors celebrated Dante’s 17th birthday by posting a rare picture with his father on Twitter.
