Marty is an American television personality who gained prominence for his role in the History Channel’s adventurous reality show The Curse of Oak Island, alongside his brother Rick Lagina.
However, Marty is more than just a reality show star who is enthusiastic about unearthing ancient artifacts in Oak Island. He is also a former oil and petroleum engineer and a wine businessman.
Marty is 65 years old as of 2021, as he was born on the 26th of August 1955. He was born and raised in Kingsford, Michigan, by his North American heritage parents George Lagina and Ann Lagina. He grew up with his brother Rick Lagina and sister Matina Lagina.
As for his education, Marty graduated from Michigan Tech University with a degree in Mechanical Engineering.
Married life with Margaret Olivia Lagina.
Marty is often credited for successfully maintaining his married life for so many years. He married his one and only long-time girlfriend, Margaret Olivia.
The couple was rumored to be dating for months until they finally decided to tie the knot on 5 June 1948. Although it is not clear when the pair tied the knot, it seems that they have been living a happily married life for a very long time.
Margaret often posts pictures on social media of her and Marty traveling to various countries.
Marty’s wife, Margaret, is a British woman born on the 22nd of February in Stoke on Trent. Her family later shifted to New Jersey, United States, and she completed her education at Rutgers College and University. Eventually, Margaret Olivia found herself working as a Petroleum Geologist at Wiser Oil Company.
The whereabouts they met are still not disclosed by the husband and wife. Nonetheless, the couple has been blessed with two children as of 2021.
As if a lovely relationship was not enough, Marty and Margaret Olivia conceived a dashing son named Alex Lagina and a beautiful daughter named Maddie Lagina.
Their eldest child is Alex, who was born in 1987 in Transverse, Michigan. He is the only son in his family and is the dearest as well. Alex is strongly attached to his father as he follows Marty’s footsteps every step of the way.
Just like Marty, Alex attended the University of Michigan to earn a degree in Mechanical Engineering. Likewise, this 33-year-old also made multiple appearances on his family’s show business.
Currently, he is serving as a general manager at a Michigan-based Italian wine manufacturer, Villa Mari.
Did Alex die?
For quite some time, there have been numerous reports associating with the tragedies happening on Oak Island. Similarly, while shooting for an episode of The Curse of Oak Island, a tragic death occurred as the son of a cast member died of a seizure.
Many claimed that the demised son was Marty’s son, Alex. However, the rumors are false as he is still healthy and alive as of this date. He was mistaken for another person, Drake, who lost his life.
As far as the family’s daughter is concerned, Maddie has chosen to keep every detail about her life personal. She was born and raised in Transverse City, where she completed her high schooling at Traverse City Central High School. Unlike her brother, she did not choose to follow in her father’s footsteps. Rather, she wanted to learn about curing diseases and improving health.
With that in mind, she graduated with a bachelor’s degree in Biology from Emery University in 2012 and a double degree in Doctor in Medicine and Master’s in Public Health in 2018.
She currently resides in Ann Arbor, where Maddie is a Resident Physician at Michigan Medicine, as per her LinkedIn profile.
Regardless, the children are true gems of the parents who try their level best to make their parents proud. They are often seen enjoying baseball games with their parents.
