Who is Shaunyl Benson?

Shaunyl ‘Shauny’ Benson is an Australian actress, singer and a songwriter, born on 29 July 1991 in Queensland, Australia, so her zodiac sign is Leo. This recognized exotic beauty is of Irish and Filipino descent, and is currently residing in Las Vegas, Nevada. She initially became  famous because of her husband’s fame, but now she has around 30,000 Instagram followers, on which her bio consists of only one word, and that is “Mother”.

Shaunyl’s family

Her mother is Filipino and her father is from Ireland. She has a sister named Jackie, who looks just like her, and to whom she is very close; they grew up in Australia. Their parents taught them to respect family values and create strong family bonds. There aren’t many pictures of her family on her Instagram profile. Her mother was a graphic designer, who encouraged her to stoke her artistic fire, and that is why Shaunyl took up singing from an early age.

Marriage and sons’ illness

Shaunyl’s husband is the famous illusionist and musician Criss Angel. They secretly married in 2015, divorced after just one year of marriage, but got back together in 2018. The rumors of the relationship renewal began when fans started noticing lovey-dovey photos of the two on their Instagram profiles, and snaps of their family. They have two boys together, Johnny Crisstopher Sarantakos, and Xristos Yanni Sarantakos. The name is a combination of Criss’s first name and his late father’s name. Unfortunately, as a young child, their older son Johnny battled acute lymphoblastic leukemia, and according to sources, this couple’s troubles began after their son was diagnosed with this horrible disease. Fortunately, in January 2019 after three years of cancer treatment, his chemo treatment ended and he is now cancer free. In one of her Instagram posts, Shaunyl said: ‘Johnny’s finish date is getting closer and we are so incredibly proud of how brave he is. I can’t help but get emotional thinking about the last three years, but our little superstar has been kicking butt.’ His greatest wish was to meet his favorite YouTube star Ryan from the YouTube channel Ryan ToysReview, and his wish came true – they even took pictures together while celebrating the end of Johnny’s cancer treatment.

Husband Criss Angel

Her husband Criss Angel is a famous magician and showman from New York, and they both share the same passion for music. He was a lead singer in the band called “Angeldust” and has released five albums so far. He’s appeared in a lot of TV shows, published books and met celebrities such as singer Gwen Stefani and YouTube celebrity Trisha Paytas. He is best known for his show “Criss Angel Believe” in which he even got the opportunity to collaborate with Cirque du Soleil at a famous Las Vegas casino. When his son got sick, he canceled his touring and decided to raise awareness of the issue, and so held a concert in his son’s honor, with the goal of raising money for cancer research. While his son underwent treatment, he posted pictures on Instagram, regularly thanking his fans for their constant support. For instance, in one of the photos from the hospital where he is holding Johnny, the entertainer added this Instagram caption: ‘4th day chemo treatment – Johnny & I can’t thank u enough for the overwhelming outpouring of love, prayers & support.’

Career and Education

There isn’t any relevant information about Shaunyl’s education available – then according to sources, she put her movie and music career on hold because of her son’s illness. Even though she is a singer and a songwriter, she hasn’t published her own songs up to now; the song “Never” was co-written by her and Criss Angel for one of his shows. When it comes to her movie career, she’s best known for movies “Jane” released in 2017, in which she played Jane Campbell, and the movie from 2018 called “Desert Rose” appearing as Molly Chirns. Unfortunately, she didn’t gain fame after these roles.

They Loved cake in the hat and candy factory they are so appreciative and polite! Their reactions make Me feel like I’m levitating! Sorry,I I don’t know what else to say because I’m not family and I don’t have any awards and I’m nobody’s protégé and I don’t have anything wrong with me and I”m not a model! You could be! I always thought being married meant you had to be Jake from State Farm!

  2. She isn’t really all that hott. Infact a long story short while her son was just a young boy. We slept together while her and criss were apart. And she told me that she was in love with me yadi ya. Then she called told me not to come back then a week later she thought she was pregnant by me but misscarried the baby in which broke my heart. She was crying devestated. I told her sweetie we will get through this. But she went back to the guy that broke her heart in the first place. I’m sure she will call still from time to time. But she still secretly hurts over it.

  3. Appropriate to see Shaunyl on a website with affair in the title considering Criss had one with her while engaged to Sandra Gonzalez. The age difference between Criss & Sandra was gross and Shaunyls even younger than Sandra! She gets a ton of love from his fans for being a good mom, but she‘s materialistic, immature, & vain just like all the other girls he’s paraded around over the years, constantly posting videos of herself with those ugly filters that make her look more like Michael Jackson than she already does, sticking her tongue out like a giraffe all the time, popping off on anyone who dares to criticize her for spending his money turning plastic with implants, filler, veneers, fake lashes & nails all the while preaching that she puts nothing but organic things in her body (prepared by a personal chef) and showing off the home gym & her grossly thin body. What a hypocrite. The videos of her flaunting/SCREAMING like a child over the expensive gifts Criss buys her were sickening. I’m sure part of her insecurity / need for attention is the fact that Criss initially DENIED that he was even the father of her son and publicly proclaimed another girl (Belinda) to be the only woman he’s truly ever loved, though. Ouch! It’s only a matter of time until he cheats again (if he isn’t already), but at least she’ll get a paycheck from him for the next 18 years for her and her moocher parents to continue living off of. Just remember what you said back when you’d talk shit on the man you now call your “king,” Shaunyl: if you lay down with dogs you’re bound to catch fleas. Oh, and for the love of God, get a haircut. The cousin it look isn’t cute sweetie.

    1. Well said!! If Angel would loose all his money tomorrow this selfish freak from oz would disappear faster than he ever did on stage!

    2. I couldn’t agree more!! She is so fake and hypocritical! She is nothing without him and his money, she gained success only because of him! She was in a serious relationship with another man when she had a ONE NIGHT stand with Angel, and fortunetly for her became pregnant with his child. If this would not have happened they would not be together! She was SO MUCH MORE humble before she came upon his riches. And what is with all this crap she posts about how hard her life has been? She has had her parents by her side this entire time with Johnny, never worked a day in her life and while they weren’t together, Criss supported her and their son. Try doing it as a single mom, working, no help from family or Criss and then lets see if you are as strong and inspirational as you claim! She is sickening and very hypocritical! I followed her while he was with Balinda and she certainly didnt praise her now “King” back then! Prime example of how money can truly ruin a person. Cut that ugly ass hair and your lips are now as big as your boobs! YUK! At least Criss is being smart and not marrying her, only having her pop out his kids.
