Fox & Friends anchor Brian Kilmeade is married to Dawn Kilmeade. The two have three children – son Bryan and daughters Kaitlyn and Kristyn.
Kilmeade has been at Fox News since 1997 and hosts Fox & Friends with Steve Doocy and Ainsley Earhardt every weekday morning. He also hosts his own Fox News Talk Radio show, Kilmeade and Friends, from 9 a.m. to 12 p.m. ET each weekday.
Here’s a look at his wife and family.
1. The Kilmeade Family Lives in Massapequa, New York
According to his website, the Kilmeade family lives in Massapequa on Long Island, New York. In October 2015, his family told Fox News Insider that he’s usually the top suspect for “household thefts.”
“He’s the top suspect in a number of household thefts. Water bottles – even if they have someone else’s initials on them! – have a habit of disappearing from the fridge. It’s hard to blame him though, since he makes up for it with random acts of kindness,” his family told th site.
Celebrity Net Worth estimates that Kilmeade has an estimated net worth of $2.5 million.
2. Dawn & Kilmeade Have Been Married Since 1993
There isn’t much available on Kilmeade’s private life. However, his IMDb profile lists the date of his wedding as December 3, 1993. That means the couple just had their 23rd wedding anniversary in December 2016.
Their eldest child is son Bryan, who is 20. Kristyn is 15 and Kaitlyn is 13. His family told Fox News Insider that his pet peeve is chewing gum. “We always joke that he’d rather walk in traffic than hear any of our friends chew gum,” they said.
3. Their Son Bryan Attends Syracuse University
Their son Bryan Kilmeade is currently attending Syracuse University, according to his LinkedIn bio. He’s an intern in the football team’s recruiting office and is getting a degree in Sports Management. He is expected to graduate in 2018.
Based on his LinkedIn page, it looks like he’s also interested in sabermetrics as a member of the baseball sabermetrics club. He attended Chaminade High School, a private Roman Catholic school in Mineola, New York.
Kaitlyn has an interest in musical theater. She was a member of the Body Language Dance Studio, which did a production of Willy Wonka Junior.
4. Their Wedding Song was ‘The Power of Love’
Kilmeade’s bio on IMDb notes that their wedding song was “The Power of Love,” the song by Huey Lewis & The News that plays over the Back to the Future main titles.
That might explain why Kilmeade was very excited on “Back to the Future Day” in October 2015. The host actually got stuck inside a DeLorean during Fox & Friends.
“Do I look as sexy as I feel?” Kilmeade asked Lewis when he finally got out of the car.
“No,” Lewis said.
5. She Doesn’t Get Much Down-Time With Kilmeade
One of the six secrets the Kilmeade family revealed to Fox News was that they don’t get to spend much time with him because he’s always busy.
“Brian never stops moving,” they told Fox News Insider. “There’s never any down time with him. When he’s not scoping the news or teaching us a lesson about history, he’s usually begging us to play a game of soccer in the backyard.”
Kilmeade did thank his family for their support in his book George Washington’s Secret Six: The Spy Ring That Saved The American Revolution, which he wrote with Don Yaeger. The authors thanked their families for “indulging our excitement about the story and mirroring our enthusiasm as every aspect of the ring was bought to light and life.”
