On September 14, former SNL star Norm Macdonald passed away aged 61 due to cancer. The heartbreaking news has left many fans wondering about his ex-wife Connie Macdonald’s whereabouts.

Comedy fans loved Norm’s dry and witty sense of humour. He was best known for hosting SNL and fans admired his celebrity impersonations immensely.

The news about the comedian’s passing was announced by his management firm, Brillstein Entertainment, to Deadline. His longtime producing partner and friend, Lori Jo Hoekstra, revealed that Norm had been privately battling cancer for almost a decade.

Who is Connie Macdonald?

The Canadian comedian, whose full name was Norman Gene Macdonald, married Connie Vaillancourt Macdonald in 1988. The couple remained married for almost a decade before calling it quits in 1999.

Reports reveal that Connie, who largely remained away from the media’s radar during her marriage with the popular comedian, is a family therapist by profession. It is also stated that she currently lives in Los Angeles. 

Not much else is know about Connie and her relationship with Norm, as they preferred to keep their marriage and family life away from the spotlight.

The former couple only had one kid, a son named Dylan Macdonald, who was born in 1993. Norm’s son would be around 29/30 years old now. Very little is known about him as well.

Dylan’s Facebook account states that he worked at TheLead, and was also running a YouTube channel called 3rd Triumvirate with his friends.

Did the late SNL star re-marry?

Although Norm was extremely secretive about his personal life, it doesn’t look like he ever re-married. He never mentioned that he had a wife in his chat show appearances and stand-ups following his divorce from Connie.

However, reports claim that he dated actress Elle Macpherson between 1997 and 1998, following his separation from wife Connie. Not much else is known about the Norm’s dating life either.

Norm Macdonald loses battle to cancer

In his statement, Norm’s friend, Hoekstra stated, “He was most proud of his comedy. He never wanted the diagnosis to affect the way the audience or any of his loved ones saw him. Norm was a pure comic.”

Many fans took to Twitter to mourn the comedian’s death. Moreover, late-night hosts like Seth Meyers, Jimmy Fallon and James Corden remembered the star too.

Jimmy hailed Norm saying: “He’s just one of the greatest comedians ever, and, God, we’re going to miss him. He was a friend of the show — family, really, to us.”

James commended the comedian for braving through cancer saying: “Norm Macdonald passed away today, far too soon, after a nine-year battle with cancer; a battle Norm never told anybody about, because all Norm ever wanted to do was to make us laugh, and he was absolutely brilliant at it. There was nobody quite like him.”
