Background and Age

Patrick Thomas Monahan was born on February 28, 1969, in Erie, Pennsylvania. His father, Jack Monahan, was a musician and clothing store owner, and his mother was Patricia Ann. Monahan was the youngest of seven siblings. He attended high school in Millcreek Township at McDowell High School. After graduating, he attended Edinboro University of Pennsylvania. Upon graduating from Edinboro University, he pursued a career in the music industry.

Marriage, Wife, and Kids

Patrick's first marriage was in August 1990 to Ginean Rapp, a school teacher. After meeting in a bar called "Sherlock's," the couple had two children while Patrick was playing in his cover band "Rogues Gallery." Ginean had a friend who was dating one of Patrick's bandmates. They dated all summer and said it was love at first sight. The famous singer Cher even invited them to play in Los Angeles, prompting Rapp to quit her job and move with him. Their two children are named Patrick and Emelia.

The first two years in California were miserable for the couple; Monahan got deeply into drugs and lost everything. The family later relocated to Hollywood Boulevard, and the already strained bond went broke and they moved back to their hometown. Rapp went back to teaching so the family would have an income and continued to support Monahan. After a few years and a lot of hard work, he eventually landed a gig for a band, but it was too late to save his marriage. In 2006, Monahan and Rapp divorced. As part of the divorce settlement, he gave his house to Rapp. He eventually moved on from his ex-wife and began dating Amber Peterson after meeting her during one of his shows. Monahan eventually married Peterson, and together they have two children, Autumn and Rock Richard.
