Meet Douglas Brunt

Megyn had been previously married to Daniel Kendall but divorced in 2006. Douglas was Presidentand CEO of Authenium, Inc., and worked in New York. They kept up the long distance relationship and then Megyn was moved to the New York station as anchor. That sealed the deal. He proposed and they were married on March 1, 2008. It was Doug’s first marriage. They now have three children, a boy Yates, 4, a girl, Yardley who is two, and a baby boy Thatcher.

His wife seems to be having problems with comments she made on her Fox show. Maybe she should think a little harder before speaking.
