Yeardley Smith van The Simpsons married former police investigator Dan Grice on Monday, July 11. On July 13, Smith’s agent confirmed the news. Dan Grice is a former Springfield Police Department detective who met Smith in 2014 when he volunteered to be part of her security detail while she was in town. Yeardley Smith has been the voice of Lisa Simpson since The Simpsons debuted in 1989. The couple married at their Los Angeles home. More information about the wedding will follow later.

How did Yeardley Smith meet her husband?

Dan Grice, as mentioned earlier, was a Springfield Police Department detective. Smith and Grice first met in 2014, when the former traveled to Springfield, Oregon for the unveiling of a Simpsons-themed mural commemorating the show’s 25th anniversary. Yeardley was initially uninterested in the event as she was concerned for her safety after being a victim of past stalking.

When Yeardley inquired about security, the Springfield Police Department told her she would be accompanied by a plainclothes detective during the event. Then it turned out to be a detective. Dan volunteered when his boss asked for volunteers for the occasion so the other detectives could spend time with their families and children. He had no such obligations as he was unmarried.

Grice had known Smith since seeing her in previous films, but he had no idea she was the voice of Lisa Simpson. He followed Smith to the event the next day, and they exchanged phone numbers before Smith left for Los Angeles. They spoke via text and Grice met Smith while visiting Los Angeles, while Smith traveled to Oregon to see him. The couple got engaged in 2018 and while they planned to get married in March 2021, the wedding was postponed twice due to the Covid-19 epidemic.
