Who is Andrew Lloyd Webber's Current Wife, Madeleine Gurdon?

Madeleine Astrid Gurdon married Andrew Lloyd Webber on February 9th, 1991 in Westminster in the UK. Although she is fifteen years Webber's junior, Gurdon and Webber have been married 27 years.

Even though her father was a British Army Officer, Gurdon had no interest in joining the military. Madeleine Gurdon was educated in a convent and introduced to competitive horse riding at a young age. First, she enjoyed a decade-long career as an equestrian competitor, riding in three-day events in Princess Anne's set.

As well as her riding career, Gurdon designed clothes. In light of her connection to equestrian riding, her designs focused on country wear. She not only created exclusive designs, but also focused on leather and suede materials. The company was named The Done Thing, after her favorite dun horse.

Madeleine Gurdon met Andrew Lloyd Webber through his horse-loving neighbors.

When Andrew Lloyd Webber was named a Baron, Gurdon became a Baroness. Despite her husband's success, Madeleine Gurdon's net work is only estimated at $200,000.

Together, the couple has three children, two sons and one daughter. First, a son named Alastair Adam Lloyd Webber who was born May 3, 1992. Second, a son named William Richard Lloyd Webber who was born August 24, 1993. And third, their daughter Isabella Aurora Lloyd Webber was born April 30, 1996.

Recently, the couple went on a vacation together to Barbados. They have been happily married for almost 30 years. Together, they currently reside in Hampshire and London.
