As Lin-Manuel Miranda's career takes off now more than ever, his wife, Vanessa Nadal, is inadvertently rising to fame by showing the world just how much she can juggle on a day-to-day basis. For those who don't know, Lin-Manuel Miranda is an American actor, playwright, and composer, and is famously involved in Broadway musicals. With the latest release of Mary Poppins Returns, the spotlight has definitely been on their family and Vanessa Nadal has shown to be no less than a super-mom with the many roles she has taken on as her husband's career advances.
Vanessa Nadal is a lawyer, based in New York, who studied at MIT before going on to work as a scientist for Johnson & Johnson. After a change of career path, Marie Claire says Vanessa then attended Fordham University School of Law and was hired by Jones Day law firm where she practiced law up until 2015. According to Us Magazine and Elite Daily, being both a lawyer and a scientist, Vanessa is definitely the brains of the family. That being said, her husband isn't lacking in the intelligence department much either.
The couple met when they attended Hunter College High School in New York City's Upper East Side neighborhood but didn't end up dating until many years later in 2005. Miranda admits that is partially his fault and says, "she was gorgeous and I'm famously bad at talking to women I find attractive. I have a total lack of game." They got married in 2010 and now have two children, Francisco (who was born in 2018) and Sebastian (who was born in 2014).
In addition to being a lawyer and mother, Nadal is also Miranda's biggest supporter and Miranda simply adores her. The pair are constantly being seen acting as if the honeymoon stage of their relationship never ended. Marie Claire says that at the 2016 Tonys, Lin-Manuel Miranda showed his appreciation for his wife and gave the world a glimpse of her remarkableness when he said, "My wife's the reason anything gets done. She nudges me towards promise by degrees. She is a perfect symphony of one. Our son is her most beautiful reprise."
Between striving to be a successful herself, supporting a celebrity husband whose work is just as important to her as it is to him, all while raising two children, Vanessa Nadal is definitely impressive, to say the least. And while Lin-Manuel Miranda's fame and success are also very impressive, Vanessa Nadal is not only a super-mom but a super-woman with her flawless balancing act.
