Meet Renata Ford, formerly Renata Brejniak. She is the wife of Canadian mayor and business man Robert Bruce Ford. Rob for friends. Her husband was elected mayor in 2010 and although many got to take their first glimpse at her on election night she has been married to Rob for the past 13 years.
The couple tied the knot in 2000 and have two children together. She is seen along Ford here and there, smiling but always quiet. She has remained an enigma and reports say she is the first mayoral spouse about whom almost nothing is known, including her age, background and occupation.
Which is quite abnormal regard political spouses. Maybe she just has enough with her husband’s controversies and feels less of an obligation to play a public spousal role.
She did expressed her opinion about media members following her husband’s every move on a rare and seemingly impromptu interview to the Sun last year, she said
“I kind of feel sorry for them,”
I look out the window sometimes at 6:30 a.m. and I see them. Sometimes it’s raining.” “They have a job to do and I know that.”
She also shared how her children deal with media, adding
They are used to the reporters,” “They just think they are all there because they really love their father.”
Renata has certainly made an effort to stay out of the public eye but her husband said during an interview with Maclean’s magazine in 2010:
“my wife supports me 100 per cent,” even when things get ugly.
And that is certainly a good thing. At this point in their lives, her hubby is no stranger to scandals, Ford has been the subject of a number of personal and work related controversies and legal proceedings most recently a video where the 44-year-old is seen smoking crack! The NY Post reports
Police Chief Bill Blair said Thursday he was “disappointed” Balir says the video will come out in court and declined to provide details. He said the video, recovered from a computer hard drive, “depicts images that are consistent with those previously reported in the press.”
Renata first gave birth to daughter Stephanie who is now eight-years-old and later came son Doug who is five. She and her family live in their Etobicoke home where she quietly enjoys the pleasures of baking, says The Badger. Apparently without much to say she only supports her husband 100%
