Though, the smooching picture from the New York-born star’s Instagram feed has since been deleted. While the former couple never explained the unusual moniker, allegedly they went on to name their little girl after the famed Elizabethan playwright and poet Christopher ‘Kit’ Marlowe.

As such, fellow celebrity Sienna Miller had also named her daughter Marlowe after the playwright.

Brick Stowell And Alana; After The Breakup; What Did They Split?

It isn’t exactly clear when and why the tour manager cum photographer and the Scientology lifer actress ended their relationship. The latter, nonetheless, is now married to her new boyfriend, New York restaurateur Paul Longo.

It apparently had been a while since Alanna and Longo started becoming a thing before their eventual wedding in March 2021. After tying the knot, the brunette mother of one, on her Insta, posted a mirror selfie in an elevator while wearing what appeared to be a wedding dress under a Yankees jacket.

As per the Clark County marriage records, Masterson and her husband’s marriage license comes with the date March 12, 2021, with a certification date of March 15. In addition to the couple’s new beginning, The Underground Bunker at the time reported Masterson also put her Los Angeles home on the market.

On the other hand, Stowell’s current love life is conversely a foggy subject mostly because of his detachment from Insta, Facebook, or other such podiums where people might have known what he’s up to these days.

The apparent covertness of the photographer does make it difficult to construe whether he has a girlfriend or not in addition to what his present pursuits are.

Brick Stowell Net Worth 

While the mother of Stowell’s daughter, Alanna Masterson is one of the actors to receive a good billing if not the highest for her work in The Walking Dead, no such distinction has yet been made for the photographer himself. Especially when the focus is on the money-making issues.

Just to compare, for the majority of her good career Brick’s ex was reportedly raking in an average of $40,000 to $60,000 per episode, if not more. That went much higher when she became a series regular for the fifth season. And further when the series added her to the main credits in the seventh season.

Consequently, it should come as a surprise in knowing her net worth is in the region of $2 to $3 million.

What’s unknown, however, is the similar stats with respect to the father of her daughter. He may be a cameraman with a credible resume as well as a co-owner of a fast food line, Burgers 99. Though the details of his net worth are all but discussed or analyzed.
