There is no proper citation on when Brian married his wife Dawn Kilmeade, but sources suggest that they were married in 1993 and all indications suggest that Dawn is Brian’s ‘only one.''

Brian has three children, one son named Bryan(aged 20) and two daughters named Kirstyn(aged 14) and Kaitlyn (aged 12.) His family seems to love him as much as he loves them. 

In an interview with Insider Fox news, they revealed what they considered his ‘Pet Peeves’ which included his self-proclaimed movie critic nature, his obsession with collecting newspaper headlines, his dislike of chewing gum and his rather messy handling of household products.

What stood out the most was how he came off as the same kind of person he appears to be on television; an active, humorous man that loves his sports(especially Soccer which he played during his college years)  and lives life to its fullest.

The Roman Catholic author is dedicated to his wife, and not a single rumor about an affair or a divorce has surfaced all these years.

Brian Kilmeade and his controversial ‘humorous’ comments

Although he has quite a comical demeanor, Kilmeade has had a history of inappropriate jokes and comments.

Some of them include “You grew up on tacos, correct?”(a racist joke towards a Nicaraguan meteorologist),  “Not all Muslims are terrorists, but all terrorists are Muslim” (a self-explanatory jab at Muslims during a 9/11 discussion), “We keep marrying other species and other ethnics” ( a comment he made relating Inter-race marriages and increased tendencies of having Alzheimer’s) and a few other comments.

Although not insulting, there is this video of that one time Brian accidentally hit a two-year-old kid in the face with a basketball.
