Who is Louis CK’s ex-wife? Alix Bailey Wiki Bio

Alix Bailey was born in the US on 3 February 1967 – her zodiac sign is Aquarius, and she holds American nationality. Alix is mainly popular for two things: for being the ex-wife of Louis Szekely, a popular actor and stand-up comedian, and for being an actress who has appeared in several movies, including “Tomorrow Night”.

Childhood and education

Alex is of mixed ethnicity, and spent part of her childhood in New Haven in Connecticut, while she has also lived in Italy. Her first passion was painting, and after discovering her talent, her parents enrolled her at an art school and she began working on her skills from a very early age.

She studied at a local high school in New Haven, and then enrolled at Bennington College in Vermont, and graduated with a bachelor’s degree in liberal arts in 1989 – while there, Alix met several famous artists, such as Pat Adams and Sydney Tillim, who further motivated her to work on her career as a painter.

After graduation, she enrolled at Indiana University from which she obtained her Master of Fine Arts degree in 1991.

Alix’s career

Alix has been selling her paintings since she obtained her master’s degree, and has also had a couple of exhibitions around Connecticut and New York – she is currently a member of New York City’s Painting Center, and is somewhat popular in Italy as well, and has had several exhibitions there. Alix has also launched her career in acting, winning her first role in 1998 in the “Tomorrow Night” comedy movie, without having any prior experience in acting – she played alongside several popular actors such as Todd Barry and Jim Earl, and was praised for her performance.

She kept working on her career as a painter, before being cast to appear in the “Pootie Tang” Blaxploitation comedy movie in 2001, alongside famous comedian and actor Chris Rock – Alix also did all the artwork displayed in the movie. Her latest role was in “Spooky Stakeout” in 2016.

Love life and marriage with Louis CK

Alix and Louis CK first met in 1985 at a New Year’s Eve party, when they were both 18 years old. Louis spent the night flirting with Alix, and even asked her to marry him just five minutes into their conversation, to which she laughed at him, as he was drunk and smelled as vomit.

The two met again several years later and began dating – after a year of going out together, Louis asked Alix to marry him, this time sober, and Alix accepted – the wedding took place in New York City in 1995. They are parents to two daughters named Mary Louise Szekely and Kitty Szekely, but the family is not living together, as Alix and Louis’ divorce was made official in 2008, with Alix receiving full custody of Mary and Kitty.

Alix hasn’t married again, and currently appears to be single, while in 2018 Louis began dating Blanche Gardin, a French actress and comedian.

Who is Louis CK?

Louis Szekely was born in Washington, D.C. USA, on 12 September 1967 – his birth sign is Virgo and he holds American nationality. Louis became popular for his career as a stand-up comedian, who has won several awards while he has recently been in the center of the media’s attention due to some controversy.

Louis’ career began in the ‘90s, when he started writing for other popular stand-up comedians such as Chris Rock and David Letterman. He tried directing, and worked on two movies entitled “Tomorrow Night” in 1998 and “Pootie Tang” in 2001, in both of which he featured his now ex-wife Alix. He published his first comedy album on his website in 2001, entitled “Live in Houston”, and what made him stand out amongst other comedians was selling tickets for his shows directly on the website – Louis has so far released nine comedy albums.

He has appeared in several movies too, such as “American Hustle” and “Blue Jasmine” shot in 2013, and “Trumbo” in 2015, while being praised for the work he has done for the “Louie” TV series, as he directed and wrote it as well as starred in it, which aired between 2010 and 2015. Some of the other series he has helped create include “Horace and Pete”, “Baskets”, and “Better Things” – he also lent his voice to the Max character in “The Secret Life of Pets” animated movie, released in 2016.

The year 2017 saw a decrease in Louis’ popularity and credibility, after he was accused of masturbating in front of several women. His actions were criticized by his colleagues, friends, and fans, and the consequences included his movie “I Love You, Daddy” being pulled from distribution shortly before its release date, and being replaced as a voice actor for the Max character in “The Secret Life of Pets” sequel in 2019.

Alix’s interests and hobbies

Alix is interested in all forms of art including architecture, film, and literature among others. She enjoys watching live stand-up comedians perform, which is how she fell for Louis in the first place – she is also a fan of comedy movies such as “Ace Ventura” and “Bruce Almighty”, with Jim Carrey being her favorite actor. Alix was very passionate about dancing while she was growing up, and began taking dancing lessons at around the same time when she began learning to paint – she was also learning how to sing, but says that she was ‘never very good at it’.

She enjoys travelling, and her work has taken her to a number of states in the US, while she has also been to Italy and several other European countries including Spain and France. Alix enjoys riding her bicycle rather than driving a car or taking buses, and is actively fighting for the reduction of pollution.

Appearance and net worth

Alix is currently 52 years old, and has long brown hair and green eyes while, her net worth is more than $1 million – her ex-husband Louis’ net worth is over $25 million.
