Lyn-Z Way (wife)
Date of birth: May 22, 1976
The name of Gerard’s wife is Lindsey Ann Way. They have a lot in common, and it seems, they were born to be together.
Lindsey and Gerard played in the same band “Project Revolution”. They fell in love with each other very quickly and got married backstage at one of their shows. That happened on September 3, 2007.
Like her husband, Lindsey, professionally known under the name Lyn-Z, is talented not just as a musician but also as a visual artist. She spent the first years of her life in Dunoon, Scotland. Lyn has never known her father. And she is not so close to her mother nowadays.
After graduation from high school, she entered Pratt Institute to study art and illustration. She started her career as a painter, but occasionally visited the audition to the band Mindless Self Indulgence. By the way, she told me, that she taught herself to play the bass guitar within a week.
In 2009 she gave birth to her and Gerald’s only child Bandit Lee Way. Lindsey is a doting mother, and now she joins her duties as a parent with painting. Recently, she has painted a collection of dioramas, which she named “Hush”.

Who are Gerard Way parents?
Donald Way (father)
Date of birth: 1952
Gerard used to say, that his father Donald always stood by the musician’s side when he needed help. Frankly speaking, Gerard recorded his first song in his father’s basement, using his electric guitar.
Donald doesn’t like to be in the center of public attention, nevertheless, his noble face and strict stature were caught by cameramen many times, when he stood by his sons’ side. On Twitter, he introduces himself as “a proud father of two boys”.
Donna Way (mother)
Date of birth: 1952
The name of Gerard’s mother is Donna Way. She spent the major part of her life in New Jersey. Donna is the daughter of Elena and Author Rush. She has a brother Author Rush Jr. She married Donald Way and had two sons with him. Donna was very busy, so her boys were raised mostly by her mother Elena. Gerard used to tell in his interviews, that his maternal grandmother helped him to become the person he is now. In 2005 he devoted his late grandmother to a song “Helena”.
The mother Donna and her son Gerard always were very close. She supported him and often visited his shows. But later something happened between a son and a mother, and now they see each other very rarely.

Mikey Way (younger brother)
Date of birth: September 10, 1980
Gerard has just one sibling – the younger brother Mikey, whom “My Chem” fans know rather well because he plays the bass guitar in this band.
Michael James Way shared everything with his older brother Gerald in their early years. They both spent a lot of time with their maternal grandmother Elena, and like his older sibling, Mikey fell in love with music art.
Mikey is known not just as the younger brother of a celebrity. He gained lots of kudos as himself, having worked on many personal projects. He released the songs “The Only Hope for Me Is You”, “Desolation Row” and some others. Besides, he is part of the duo “Electric Century”.
Mr. Way is married to an Instagram personality Kristin Colby. They have two daughters, Rowan and Kennedy, born in 2017 and 2019 respectively.

Gerard Way is a contradictory personality, but the main thing we know about him that he is unbelievably talented. For his strong songs and rich voice, his fans are ready to forgive him everything, including his drug and alcohol addiction. They are just happy for their idol that he managed to stop using psychotropic substances now. Since 2002, he has been the founder and member of the rock band “My Chemical Romance”, and as a part of the band has released four studio albums. Their debut album “I Brought You My Bullets, You Brought Me Your Love” was certified as gold.
He entered this world on April 9, 1977, in Summit, New Jersey, United States. The major part of his early years he spent in the house of his grandmother, Elena Lee Rush. She put lots of efforts to teach Gerard and his brother Mikey (the other member of “My Chemical Romance”) to love and understand art. She showed the boys how to draw and to sing. By the way, Gerard drew the picture for the cover of the second album “Three Cheers for Sweet Revenge”. He is a professional artist in 1999 Gerard graduated from the School of Visual Arts. After graduation, he worked as a cartoonist at Cartoon Network. The tragedy, which happened on September 11, 2001, made him change his life and follow his heart calling.
