First Glimpse Of Bethany Joy Lenz’s Daughter

Meet Maria Galeotti!

One Tree Hill star Bethany Joy Lenz stepped out with her adorable daughter, 21 months, for some Christmas shopping at The Grove in West Hollywood, Calif. on Friday (December 14). This marks the first time we’ve seen Bethany’s sweet girl.

The actress, 31, took to Twitter to share her thoughts after Friday’s devastation in Connecticut.

“Haven’t known what to say since turning on the news late this morning,” she wrote. “My heart breaks for these parents in CT. Please pray for continued protection over the hearts of the surviving children, and for comfort and justice for victims’ families.”

Maria’s father is Bethany’s ex-husband, Michael Galeotti.

Watch for her return to the small screen on TBS’s Men At Work.

    Aww, she’s just too cute! Like mother like daughter.

    Also: Joy recently got divorced from Mike Galeotti, so she’s basically Behtany Joy Lenz again.

    Maria is adorable. She looks just like Joy.

    Poor baby… With such a beautiful mum, the girl is so unfortunate looking..

    Does anyone know why they split up so soon after the birth of their daughter? They’d been married for quite a long time.

    Actually, if you go on Tumblr and scroll through the Bethany Joy Lenz tag (or Maria Galeotti), there is a picture of Joy and Maria ‘posing’ from an event a few months ago with a super clear view of Maria (she’s wearing a pale dress), and there are more photos from her shopping in LA with Wes and Maria too =)

    And Anon, they’d had difficulties in the past, tried to make it work for Maria after she were born but Joy said she didn’t want Maria growing up in a house full of arguments so she filed for divorce.

    I’m a huge Joy fan in case that wasn’t obvious lol

      So why did they have her if they were having so many problems? I’m a fan of hers too but that doesn’t really make sense.

        From what I read, they did sort through some problems and were on the mend, things looked good etc but they appeared again awhile after Maria was born and they just couldn’t make it work. Bethany wanted Maria to grow up in two happy homes instead of one miserable home. I know she wrote a few songs about her relationship a few years back when they started going through stuff the first time round. I guess it just wasn’t meant to be.
