Actor Jesse Williams has been on Grey’s Anatomy for 12 seasons playing Dr. Jackson Avery, the son of well-known surgeon Dr. Catherine Fox. But after so many seasons on the show, the actor is officially saying goodbye to his role as Dr. Avery, though not without leaving many marks on the series. Jesse has not only acted in the long-running series but he has also directed multiple episodes and diversified his portfolio during his years on the show.

Who is actor Jesse Williams’s girlfriend? 

We’ve been with his character Dr. Avery since 2009, so it isn’t surprising that we’re also thoroughly invested in the actor’s real life. Unfortunately, Jesse isn’t single, and we don’t know exactly how long he has been with his new girlfriend. In June 2023, he and Ciarra Pardo were seen on a date night in Los Angeles.

In the court documents of his divorce, Ciarra is even referred to as his «longtime girlfriend.»

So, who is Ciarra Pardo?

According to her Instagram, Ciarra is the co-founder of N4XT Experiences. The company specializes in live events for a variety of industries including fashion, beauty, and gaming. The company also acquired Los Angeles Fashion Week and runs Beauty Days, a beauty-centric immersive experience.

Prior to creating the company, Ciarra was the Chief Creative Officer of Fenty.

Who is Jesse Williams’s ex-wife?

In 2012, Jesse married Aryn Drake-Lee, and they had two kids: Sadie and Maceo. However, the couple divorced in 2017.

After finalizing their divorce in late 2020 and coming to an agreement on custody terms (in which Jesse was ordered to pay $40,000 a month in child support), they seem to be attempting the co-parenting route to some success.

In April 2021, the pair were ordered to attend a «high-conflict parents program» as part of their agreement, which is meant to diminish the stress a separation can cause on children, according to Entertainment Tonight.
