Gilligan Stillwater is the wife of popular American musician Billy Gibbons. The ZZ Top frontman has been in front of the public eyes since the start of his music career. In contrast, his wife rarely talks about her life and stays away from the media.
While Gilligan is happy to live her life away from the public eyes, she has starred in few movies and has been seen out and about with her husband on multiple occasions.
Relationship And Love Life
Billy Gibbons and Gilligan Stillwater have been married for more than a decade now. The adorable couple got married on December 14, 2005, after years of dating. Even though the two had been in a relationship for a long time, they had no trouble waiting for the right time in their life. Billy thought that life was too short and he wanted to experience everything before getting married.
After the couple was together for many years, Gibbons and Stillwater decided to get married without much fanfare. Their wedding ceremony was private and attended by very few guests. Apart from their family members, Billy's ZZ Top bandmates Dusty Hill and Frank Beard might have been in the audience during the lovely pair's ceremony.
Family Life And Children
Even after being married for fourteen years, the couple is yet to have any children and seem to be in no hurry to have children. Neither Billy nor his wife Gilligan has talked about the topics in interviews. Looking at their love-filled relationship, the pair seem to be content with their life even though they don't have their offsprings.
While Billy and his wife have been happy with their life, there was once news circulating about the singer's supposed daughter. Sources claimed that he had fathered a daughter named Angela Montenegro. This was a piece of false information, and Billy just played the role of father to the fictional character in the show Bones. The character is played by actress Michaela Conlin.
