Martie Allen was an aspiring actress who didn’t gain any notable fame and or manage to make a career in Hollywood. She did, however, become famous for dating the popular star Christina ‘Kristy’ McNichol, a comedian, actress and singer.

Early life and family

Martie Allen’s life has been kept very private and personal information about her is scarce.

Kristy McNichol and Martie Allen

We do know that Martie was born under the sign of the zodiac on 1 January 1960 in the USA, so has American nationality, and is of white ethnicity. It is not known where she grew up or which schools she attended. It is believed that she went to college but this can’t be confirmed.

Nothing is known about Martie’s family, so it’s not known whether she has any siblings. There are claims that she is an only child.

Career

Martie aspired to be an actress and pursued an acting career but did not get the big roles she was hoping for. Her on-screen career was short-lived and nothing is known about her later career. Martie wanted to keep her private life out of the public eye and she’s done it very well – she doesn’t have accounts on any of the popular social media platforms.

Relationship with Kristy McNichol

Martie and Christina ‘Kristy’ McNichol met at a relatively young age and fell in love, and have apparently been in a relationship since 1991, however, their relationship was kept secret for around two decades. It wasn’t until 2012 that Kristy decided to ‘come out’, although her sexual orientation had been rumoured for several years, and she admitted the truth, that she was lesbian.

At first, she didn’t name her long-term partner, but eventually it came out that she and Martie had indeed been together for 20 years. The two are now married and apparently still living a happy life together, away from the scrutiny of the public eye.

It is not known if Martie and Kristy have adopted any children or conceived in ways such as in vitro fertilization.

Kristy McNichol

Kristy was born on 11 September 1962 in Los Angeles, California USA, so under the sign of Virgo and holding American nationality unlike Martie, had a successful career as an actress and singer.

She grew up in Los Angeles, raised by parents James and Carolyn, and embarked on her road to fame at a young age, initially appearing in commercials along with her brother, Jimmy McNichol; he was a singer and child actor as well. Kristy became more and more famous, going on to be part of television series such as “The Love Boat”, “Starsky & Hutch” and “Love, American Style”.

She eventually appeared in several films too, and became popular in Hollywood as a versatile support actress, before retiring officially in 2001.

Kristy does not act anymore, but she and Martie live in Los Angeles, where the former star teaches acting at a private school. She also spends a lot of time dedicated to charity work.
