Morgan Louise Macgregor was born in March 1983 in Canada. Not much is known about her early life, as she keeps her family and relatives under wraps.


Morgan obtained her diploma from a local Canadian high school. She then joined Concordia University, where she earned a degree in Communication.

Although this is Michael C. Hall’s third marriage, theirs is the only marriage on the records for Morgan Macgregor. They wed in a private ceremony at the NYC city hall on February 29, 2016.

The pair had been dating since August 2012 after he split from his ex-wife and former Dexter co-star, Jennifer Carpenter.

As of May 2022, they don’t have any children, and Michael doesn’t have any children from his previous two marriages, either.


Keeping with the theme of private matters, not much is known about Morgan Macgregor’s net worth. Some estimate her earnings to be anywhere between $100,000 and $1.5 million over the years.

Unless a prenup was signed, she’s expected to have a share of the estimated $25 million net worth of her husband, Michael. However, this isn’t his first rodeo, so his assets are most likely safe in case divorce is in their future.


Morgan Macgregor loves body art, as evident by the ink all over her left arm. She has two large tattoos, one going from the left side of her neck to her upper arm, saying “the horse jumped over the f***ing” and then a drawing of a fence across her arm. The second is a sash that says “Winona Forever” right under the fence.

She also has a few small tattoos on her left forearm and hand:

  • One right beneath her elbow with the number 71, probably alluding to Michael’s birth year.
  • The word “Lolita” is written in cursive on the back of her left wrist.
  • A cross on her left middle finger.
  • A small hangman stick figure and a capital letter M (or W) on her left pinky.

He then started touring as Billy Flynn in the musical Chicago in 2003, where he met his first wife, Amy Spanger, who played Roxie Hart opposite him. The couple got married in 2002 and divorced in 2006.

Final Thoughts

Morgan Macgregor is a regular person who was put under the microscope after she began her relationship with Michael C. Hall in 2012. However, she’s been keeping her life fairly private, considering she’s married to a TV superstar.

We hope her marriage and life in the public eye don’t affect her plans to release her first novel or open her bookstore, Dead or Alive!
