Big Brother” all-star Dr. Will Kirby has been married to Erin Brodie since 2017. TMZ reported that the pair had an intimate Malibu wedding. Kirby and Brodie got engaged in 2011 after dating for six years prior to that.

In July 2021, TMZ reported that Kirby filed for divorce in Los Angeles. In a joint statement to the outlet, the pair said, “while we are exploring what our future will look like, our relationship is stronger than ever, just not in a traditional sense. We remain committed to being the best parents to our two children and supportive of each other as we navigate through this transition.”

Dr. Will and his wife have two children together, a son named Cash and a daughter named Scarlett. Kirby teased a potential run for governor of California in April but has since deleted the Instagram post where he outlined his reasons for running.

While Kirby seems like he was born for the spotlight of reality TV, (he often adds the hashtag #freakishlyhandsome to photos of himself on Instagram), less is known about his wife. Brodie has a private Instagram account and Kirby’s Instagram page is focused more on work than family.

Here are 5 fast facts you need to know about Erin Brodie, the “evil doctor“‘s soon-to-be ex-wife.

1) Dr. Will Delivered Her First Child Himself

When Brodie gave birth to her first child, Cassius or “Cash”, in 2010, TMZ reported that Kirby delivered the child himself. Kirby is a licensed dermatologist but stepped in as OB/GYN for the birth of his son.

In 2020, Kirby told Us Weekly that his family was the reason he wasn’t competing on the latest all-stars season of “Big Brother.” “I personally didn’t feel like I could leave my family or take an absence from my career obligations right now,” Kirby said. “Disappearing for three months wasn’t something that made sense to me personally.”

The “Big Brother” legend wasn’t too enthusiastic about his fellow all-stars Janelle Pierzina and Kaysar Ridha getting another shot at the game after they were both evicted early in the season. “If you have lost ‘Big Brother‘ three times then this just isn’t the right hobby for you,” he told Us Weekly.

Although Kirby was focused on family then, there might still be a chance of him returning to life as a reality TV contestant. In a 2015 interview with Us Weekly, the dermatologist said he hopes to appear on “Survivor” once his daughter goes to college. “I will just seem like the sweet little old, benevolent, nerdy dermatologist, and then I’m just going to unleash the gates of hell,” he joked.

Dr. Will isn’t the only reality-TV winner in the family. In 2003, Brodie appeared on the NBC reality show “For Love or Money.” The premise of the show was that contestants competed for either a relationship with one bachelor/bachelorette or a money prize.

While Kirby was a houseguest on “Big Brother 7″, the live feeds captured him addressing Brodie directly and trying to explain his “flirtmance” with fellow houseguest Janelle Pierzina. “If anyone knows Erin Brodie, please tell her it’s just a game,” Kirby said while discussing the situation with Mike “Boogie” Malin.
