Who is Piers Morgan’s wife?

Meanwhile Piers has three sons – Spencer, 28, Stanley, 24, and Albert, 20, to his first wife.
Why did Piers Morgan change his name?
Piers Morgan changed his name and not many people know it – because his father died when he was 11-months old and his mum remarried.
The loud mouthed TV presenter has become a household name for his ‘no holds barred’ interviews on GMB and Life Stories on ITV but he’s not always been known by his surname Morgan.
Piers, who was born in 1956 to his parents Vincent Eamonn O’Meara, a dentist from Glaway, Ireland and mother Gabrielle Georgina Sybille who was an English Catholic. But his father tragically died in a road accident when young Piers was just 11 months old and his brother Jeremy was aged three.
Piers has shared a snap of his late father when he was with his mother, and captioned it, “Happy birthday to my fabulous mother. If you’re wondering where I get my absurdly glamorous movie star aesthetic genes from, this is Mum on a date with Dad early in their courtship.”
So technically, Piers was born with the surname O’Meara. But later on in life, his mother went onto marry Glynne Pughe-Morgan, a Welsh pub landlord, and it was only then that Piers took on the surname of Pughe-Morgan.
And he used the double-barrel surname up until 1988 when he joined The Sun as a freelancer and decided to drop the first part of the surname to just Morgan.
Piers confirmed this change to a followers in 2017, to which he replied, “My father died when I was one. Hence the name change when my mother remarried.”
Piers has since shared family snaps with his step-father Glynne, who he refers to as ‘dad’.
On May 30 2021, Piers shared a snap with his father Glynne and son Spencer Morgan, captioned: “Three generations of trouble. Happy 80th Dad!”
Piers Morgan: Uncensored airs weeknights from 8pm-9pm Monday-Thursday on TalkTV with a special best bits show on Fridays.
