Mike Myers Wife & Kids Status; Previously Married Man, Divorce Now?
Only few actors reside in Hollywood who has gained as much of a widespread notoriety as Mike Myres, whose foray into the industry first began as a cast member of Saturday Night Live in the early 90's.
Despite achieving success early on in his career, over time his impact has waned significantly. While many have blamed his poor work-ethics for this, Mike, on the other hand, seems perfectly fine with not being as influential as before.
It just so happens that the 55-year-old Canadian-American loves looking after his kids and doesn't mind ditching productions just so he could with his wife.
Wife & Kids: Behind Mike Myers Self Imposed Sabbatical From Acting
For the Austin Powers actor, who is approaching his mid-50's, family always comes first. The Scarborough, Canada native seems to have found much happiness in taking care of his kids.
On his 55th birthday, he sat down with People Magazine to discuss a plethora of topics including the reasons behind his self-imposed vacation. He said:
“This is the happiest time of my life. I have a lot of stuff coming and I think I may have found the right balance now and I’m super thrilled.”
In the same interview, the Shrek star delved further into the subject of raising kids and what it means to be a famous dad. Like many of us, they too want the scoop on the new Austin Powers re-make.
Mike sounded unphased when questioned about his prolonged absence from acting and what it might do to his legacy. The Wayne's World actor fired back by saying:
"I know what I’m doing in terms of my kids now, so that was a good six years."
He and his actress wife, Jennifer Tisdale are blessed with three kids: a son named Spike and two daughters named Paulina and Sunday. Of the three kids, Spike, age 7, is the oldest, whereas Sunday, age 4, and Paulina, age 3, are the middle and youngest respectively

As for his wife, Jennifer: she's a TV actress, best known for her part in the 2006 movie Dark Ride. The 37-year-old New Jersey native was previously married to Shane McChesney, with whom she shares a daughter.
Like his wife, Mike too has a history of facing a failed marriage. Between 1993 and 2006, he was married to actress/producer Robin Ruzan. However, unlike Jennifer's previous marriage, Mike's didn't bare any kids.
And certainly Mike's both failed and current married lives stand strong enough to deflect any gay rumors coming his way.

Since then he has made a handful of TV appearances including the revival of Dr. Evil in 2018. As for movie roles, there has been far and few between offered to the 55-year-old actor. As a matter of fact, Terminal is the only movie starring him that was released in 2018. But for now, he doesn't have a single project in the pipeline.
Mike's downfall from the top of the box-office has been years in the making. Back in 2000 - he was one of the biggest stars in Hollywood - he was tangled in $35 million lawsuits. after he went AWOL on the production of Austin Powers sequel citing issues with the script.

Trouble and controversy followed the suit pretty soon. His "diva" like work-ethics didn't help his cause either. Penelope Spheeris, the director of the movie Wayne's World - which starred Mike as its lead - summed up her experience working with the actor as:
"Mike got more difficult as the shoot went along."
Rob Fried, an industry insider, was a bit more empathetic during his Telegraph interview when speaking about Mike. He said:
"I think Mike's a visionary, but his way of getting what he wants is to remote and threaten and express anger."
And when Mike's phone did ring for a possible acting gig, he's accused of not answering it.
