16 Years of the Married Life with Husband, John Krueger
Their 16 years long relationship started from their college days. The couple attended Cedarville University together with a 2-year gap between the two regarding their education, John being the younger. John was on the basketball team whereas Paula was part of the cable broadcast team for their games and this was how they initially met.
She talked about her husband stating,
"He has been my biggest supporter. He has encouraged me through every step of my career and provides emotional support when I am stressed or having a bad day. God has blessed me with a patient husband, supportive friends, and unconditional love from my family. Not a day goes by that I don’t thank Him for the people He has put in my life.”
John works as a regional manager for real estate firm Marcus & Millichap for Manhattan and Westchester, New York and previously worked as a licensed realtor for Koenig & Strey Real Living.
The couple with their three children ( namely Caroline, JJ and Landon, Caroline being the oldest at the age of 10 and Landon being youngest at the age of 3) live in Westchester County in their 1923 colonial house which has an area of 2,500 square feet on a 6,000 square feet lot. Paula talked about the reason for buying a house with such a large plot of land stating,
“When I got pregnant with my third child, I realized I couldn’t stand living in NYC anymore,” she told Closer. “We wanted our kids to have a less chaotic upbringing and give them a backyard.” and furthermore added the merits of her current residence saying,
"A lot of things we like to do are walkable, which is great when you have a baby who loves the stroller! I can walk to grab a coffee, visit a friend or even head to the beach, which we love. I’m also near the airports, and I never know if I’m going to have to jump on a plane at a moment’s notice!”

The family is inherently a Christian family, with both the husband and family hailing from Christian Ethnicity and attending a Christian university. Paula talked about their religious affliction stating,
We try to be involved, but it’s hard with such a frenetic and spontaneous schedule. But we’re they’re every week, faithful members. Our kids are involved in the kids’ ministry there. We’re at church every Sunday and keeping in contact with fellow believers throughout the week, just encouraging each throughout the week.”
