Steve McDonald on Coronation Street: How Many Times Has He Been Married?
Steve was married to five different women seven times. His first wife was Vicky Arden, whom he married in 1995.
She was the wealthy granddaughter of Alec Gilroy and wanted to rebel. But Steve was just after her money after throwing himself into a lot of gambling debt.
When he tried to force a stolen load of whiskey on her, she turned to him and had him sent downstairs for two years. They soon got divorced.
He continued to have a relationship with Fiona Middleton, but she left the cobblestones in 1998.
He then married Karen Phillips in 2001, whom he married for a bet. But they realized they really did love each other and divorced so they could get married properly in 2004.
The divorce caused disputes between the couple and they broke up briefly. During this time, Steve Tracy Barlow got pregnant.
He met with Karen again, but the truth about Tracy came out at their wedding ceremony.
They married anyway, but the ghost of Tracy was too bearable and Karen collapsed and left town.
Marriages to Becky, Michelle and Tracy
Steve had a number of other relationships, including gangster’s wife, Ronnie Clayton. But eventually, Rover’s barmaid Michelle Connor seemed solid.
He then cheated on Michelle with Becky Granger, whom he married in 2009.
When Becky and Steve were planning their divorce, he had another one night stand with Tracy and she became pregnant with twins.
They decided to get married, but she miscarried. She pretended Becky had lost her by pushing her down the stairs.
When Becky presented Tracy’s medical records to the front desk to prove she hadn’t caused the miscarriage, a disgusted Steve immediately ended things with his new bride.
He revived his relationship with Michelle and they got married in 2015.
After an argument, Steve slept with Leanne Battersby and she later found out she was pregnant. Steve soon came back with Michelle and she discovered she was pregnant too.
Michelle gave birth to her son Ruairi when he was 23 weeks old and he was pronounced dead shortly after he was born.
Leanne gave birth to a baby boy whom she named Oliver. When the truth about Steve as Oliver’s father came out, Michelle kicked him out.
He eventually came back with Tracy and they married in 2018.
At their wedding, however, she got into an argument with Leanne when she discovered that Steve had slept with her again.
How many children does he have?
Technically, Steve has six children. His oldest is Emma Brooker.
Emma is the daughter of Fiona Middleton. In 2019, Steve discovered that his neighbor Emma was actually his daughter.
It turned out that his ex-girlfriend Fiona was pregnant when she walked off the cobblestones in 1998.
