Who Is Dr. Anca Faur, Buzz Aldrin’s New Wife? American Astronaut Marries for Fourth Time

Buzz Aldrin

Dr. Anca Faur, Buzz Aldrin’s new wife, is currently the talk of the town. Buzz Aldrin is a former astronaut, fighter pilot, and engineer from the United States. On the Apollo 11 mission in 1969, he was the second man to set foot on the Moon, following mission leader Neil Armstrong.

Aldrin had previously completed three spacewalks while piloting the Gemini 12 mission in 1966.

He has also served in the United States Air Force at the United States Air Force Test Pilot School, among other things.

A Look at the Aldrin Family

Buzz Aldrin was born to Marion Aldrin (née Moon) and Edwin Eugene Aldrin Sr. in Glen Ridge, New Jersey, USA.

Edwin Sr. was an Army aviator during World War I and the assistant commandant of the test pilot school at McCook Field, Ohio, from 1919 to 1922.

He left the Army in 1928 to work as an executive at Standard Oil.

Madeleine and Fay Ann Aldrin were Aldrin’s two older sisters.

His nickname, which became his formal first name in 1988, arose from Fay mispronouncing “brother” as “buzzer,” which was reduced to “Buzz.”

He earned a mechanical engineering degree from the United States Military Academy at West Point in 1951.

Aldrin earned a Doctor of Science in astronautics from MIT before becoming NASA’s first astronaut with a doctorate.

Buzz Aldrin’s Previous Marriages and Children Investigated

Buzz Aldrin has four marriages and three children with his first wife.

On December 29, 1954, he married Joan Archer, with whom he was married for 20 years.

He had three children: James, Janice, and Andrew Aldrin.

He has three great-grandsons, Nathaniel, Benjamin, and Archer, as well as one great-granddaughter, Kaia Nicole.

In 2018, the former astronaut was embroiled in a legal battle with his children Janice and Andrew, as well as his former business manager Christina Korp.

They claimed that Aldrin was intellectually damaged by dementia and Alzheimer’s disease and that his new pals were financially and socially manipulating him.

They wanted to be named as his legal guardians.

However, in June, Aldrin retaliated by launching a lawsuit against the trio as well as the family’s businesses and foundations.

The matter was resolved when his children withdrew their petition and he dismissed the case in March 2019.
