Dan's Married, Wife, and Children?

Dan Patrick met Susan White while working at CNN. Patrick was a reporter/presenter, and his then to-be-wife was the producer of Inside Politics. We don’t know if it was love at first sight, but they sure did hit it off well. For the first date, Dan took Susan to a bar in Manhattan and sat there talking and drinking all night long. He had to walk 30 blocks home since he spent all his money on the date and was too embarrassed to admit it.

Even more interesting than Dan and Susan's first date was the way Dan proposed Susan. He shared the story of his proposal on Ohio Magazine back in 1999. 

While returning back to New York after visiting Dan's family for Thanksgiving, the two of them traveled back in different planes. Dan gave the engagement ring to his sister and told her to give it to Sue with a note. When the two landed back home the tears in Susan's eyes made it clear that the answer was yes. Later, the two got married and has been together ever since. Together, the husband and wife have four beautiful children, daughters Georgia, Molly and Grace and a son Jack.
