Piano man and ladies man Billy Joel married for the fourth time on the Fourth of July. Joel’s new wife is Alexis Roderick, who has been his partner since 2009. The wedding took place during Joel’s annual July 4th gig at one of his estates on Long Island.
Roderick is 33, half Joel’s statuesque 66. Roderick is a former Wall Street executive at the financial giant Morgan Stanley, and she’s an avid equestrian — having competed as a rider. Roderick owns horses and is active in the US Equestrian Federation. The vegetarian Roderick is pregnant with her first child. It will be Billy Joel’s second child — his first, Alexa Ray Joel, is 29. Alexa Ray’s mom Christie Brinkley tweeted that another quality new bride Alexis Roderick possesses is that she’s a “wonderful friend” to her daughter Alexa, her near contemporary.
