Family (husband and children)
Marisol Maldonado is married to popular singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist, Rob Thomas. Thomas was born on February 14, 1972, in Landstuhl, West Germany. However, he grew up in America and endured a difficult and unstable childhood. The young Thomas found solace in the music and later teamed up with other aspiring musicians to form the alternative rock band Matchbox 20 in 1995.
The band released their first album, Yourself of Someone Like You, in October 1996. The album initially had a slow start but later went platinum. It also won two awards at the American Music Awards. Since then, Matchbox has dropped 20 other successful albums and headlined several sold-out tours. Rob Thomas has also enjoyed a successful career as a solo artist and songwriter. He released no less than four solo albums, including Something To Be, which debuted at number one on the Billboard Top 200 Chart.
Marisol Maldonado first met her husband at an afterparty with prizes in 1997 in Montreal. They were introduced by a mutual friend and fell for each other at first sight. The couple then began a relationship and later married in October 1998 in California. Before their relationship, Thomas lived the life of a typical rock star filled with booze, drugs and women. However, he has put that lifestyle behind him. He has now revealed that he has worked the whole youthful exuberance issue out of his system and as such he does not fill as if he is missing something.
Maldonado and her husband don’t have children together. Her husband, however, has a son, Maison Avery William Thomas, from a previous relationship.
Fight with Lyme disease
Marisol Maldonado has been suffering from debilitating Lyme disease since 2003. Due to the conflicting symptoms shown by the disease, it was initially difficult to diagnose her correctly. In the beginning, her multiple sclerosis was diagnosed and later lupus. It wasn’t until surgery in 2015, to remove a lesion from her brain, that doctors correctly diagnosed her as suffering from eight tick-borne diseases.
As a result of her condition, Maldonado often suffers from seizures, numbness, visual impairment and constant pain and this has affected her ability to have children. The media personality had to rely on multiple treatments, including medications and holistic therapies, to tackle the disease. Despite her health problems, Maldonado still accompanies her husband on tours and acts as his manager. She has also worked with various organisations to raise awareness about Lyme disease and also to combat the stigma of the disease.
