´There are different sources about his second wife: German Wikipedia, spacefacts, and others say, that her name is Conny Stevens, but imdb, English Wikipedia and several more say, that his second wife is Carol Held Knight, so what is correct?

Thanks in advance.

Connie Steven is an actress, whom Armstrong met while on a USO tour. There were tabloid reports of a romantic relationship but they were false.

Carol Knight is Armstrong's second wife.

According to First Man, they were introduced by mutual friends. I am sure she would consider your guess of 30 years a compliment, as there is only a 15 year difference between their ages.
