The American journalist and media personality Megyn Kelly married Douglas Brunt, then-president and CEO of the cybersecurity firm Authentium in 2008.
The couple has three children together Edward Yates, Yardley Evans, and Thatcher Bray Brunt.
Kelly recently hit the limelight, expressing her views towards the American professional soccer Megan Rapinoe.
In recent discussions on The Megyn Kelly Show and among other right-wing commentators, there have been suggestions that Megan Rapinoe’s progressive activism might be impacting the performance of the U.S. soccer team in the Women’s World Cup.
During Wednesday’s episode of The Megyn Kelly Show, Kelly and her guests expressed their disapproval of the team’s celebration following a 0-0 tie with Portugal on Tuesday.
It’s worth noting that this tie ultimately allowed the U.S. team to advance to the knockout round, where they are scheduled to play against Sweden on Sunday.

That Awkward First Kiss
In an interview with Brandon Stanton of Humans of New York at the Met Gala, Douglas shared the intriguing story of how his romance with Megyn began in the mid-2000s.
He recalled that their relationship took off shortly after Kelly had acquired a stalker, an unfortunate circumstance that required her to have security personnel by her side 24/7.
Despite the challenging circumstances, Brunt and Kelly embarked on their first date, and it turned out to be a wonderful evening with a connection that was undeniably leading toward a romantic conclusion.
As the night unfolded, Brunt found himself faced with a unique situation – he had to kiss Kelly in front of the security guards, a moment that must have added both excitement and nerves to the already memorable evening.
