Jennifer McDaniel Wiki: Age, Birthday, Net Worth, Rowdy Wedding Details & More
The secret of a happy marriage is finding the right person. You know they're right if you love to be with them all the time.
This quote by Julia Child signifies that marriages can go awfully wrong if the person you choose turns out not to be the one you had been looking for. But if the partner you choose is right, then marriage is the secret to happy and satisfying life.
Hulk Hogan, in that sense, can be termed as both lucky and unlucky; his first marriage ended in acrimonious circumstances, but his marriage to Jennifer McDaniel has been happy and blissful.
Jennifer, on her part, has always stood by Hulk in his tough times and today, we track back this gorgeous couple’s love life and reveal a wiki-like bio of Jennifer McDaniel, and further explain how this couple’s love life has stood the test of time.
Jennifer McDaniel, born on 13 May 1974, worked as a makeup artist before sharing limelight due to her relation with Hogan. The couple started dating in 2008 when Hogan’s divorce with his first wife was still being finalized.
The couple got married on 14 December 2010 in Hulk's Florida home. Jennifer’s marriage with Hogan contained the usual I do vow and a fight. Yeah, you heard it right, the couple’s marriage ended with a brawl between a pesky paparazzo, and Hogan’s bodyguard.
Police officers were called to the ceremony to pacify the matter, but it ended swiftly as no sides pressed the charges.
Hogan meanwhile saw the funny side of the brawl and described the situation as crazy in his tweet after the ceremony.

Jennifer: A Gold Digger?
Jennifer and Hogan’s romance and subsequent marriage were labeled, in some quarters, as just a deal in paper. Jennifer, now 44 years of age, was accused of marrying someone who was 20 years older than her, only for his money and was portrayed as a gold-digger. She was 36 at the time of their marriage while Hogan was 56.
Their marriage suffered first real hiccup when Hogan’s sex tape with Heather Clem was leaked online in 2012. But Jennifer, instead of ditching him, remained by his side when he needed her the most.
Hogan filed an emotional damage lawsuit against Gawker magazine in 2014 who leaked his sex-tape online. The court awarded Gawker a settlement fine of $131million.
Gawker filed for bankruptcy and agreed with Hogan to pay him $31millios in out of the court settlement.
Again in 2014, Hogan was embroiled in a racism row, when he was filmed using N-word to describe his daughter’s boyfriend. This led WWE to strip him of all his achievements; he was removed from the WWE hall of fame, and his archives from YouTube deleted.
But Jennifer again stood by his side and supported him during the hard times.
These have not only dispelled the gold digger myths but established Jennifer as a loyal wife and a right partner. They have always looked inseparable and have been pictured together in various romantic getaways.
The couple were reported to have romantically celebrated Jennifer's birthday and were seen shopping together as they carve out ways to spend the money from The Gawker's settlement.

Jennifer, in addition to being a loyal wife, has also been a lovely mother to Hogan’s two children from his first wife. She gave up her job as a makeup artist, which had established her in Hollywood so that she could be a better mother to Hogan's children.
Jennifer’s actual net worth has yet to be disclosed but the sun estimated Hogan’s net worth in 2016 to be around $25 million. That topped with Gawker’s settlement fees means, Hogan is worth between 50-55 million and Jennifer, as his lawfully wedded wife, shares that vast fortune with him.
