You have seen her joyous attitude hosting ‘The Kelly File, ’ and you’ve seen her heated up, butting heads with Donald Trump. Megyn Kelley @megynkelly has been visualized as a bold, confident woman who has ruled the positions as one of the top-rated journalists but never been linked to her off-screen life as nothing more than a wife.
Megyn Kelley is a very interesting personality on TV but what about her personal life? Find out about her married life and who is her husband and does she have any children?
On a Family Vacation to France:
Megyn Kelly was spotted in France with her entire family of four. If you didn’t know much about her family, then she is married to Douglas Brunt @DougBrunt. They have been husband and wife for eight years now, and their marriage has produced them, three children. They are two sons of 6 and three years respectively and a daughter aged 5. From eldest, they were born on 2009, 2011 and 2013 respectively.

Anyway, you might have caught up with Kelly on her interviews with three heroes that had helped contain the France train terrorist attack in September. Well, only a month after she started posting the pictures in media sites of her and her family in France.
Well, these must be from the time that Kelly announced to take a brief ten days vacation after consecutive six months of work. That particular week was the time of her feud with Donald Trump.

Anyhow, it seems that she had some fun times looking at the pictures.

The Romantic Back Story:
You have to agree that Brunt and Kelly look very good together in every photo. It gets you wondering to how this power couple met?
According to a story on a social media page called Humans of New York.
“We started dating shortly after she acquired a stalker—bad start, I know. So she had security with her 24/7. Our first date went great. It was the kind of night that was clearly going to end with a kiss. But I had to kiss her in front of the security guards. It was awkward. It was like our parents were watching. The next morning she knocked on my hotel room door. She was alone. She walked into the room, and said: ‘I can do better.’”
It was nothing fancier than a simple date except a few security guards staring at them. So, it happens that Kelly was having a bit of a stalker problem so for her protection, she had been tagging along security with her 24/7.
They had a good first date that ended with a kiss, but it was really awkward due to the sets of eyes that were on them the whole time. But the very next morning Brunt would come to find a delightful surprise knocking on his door.
It was Kelly, who entered alone this time and said that she could do it much better and kissed him properly. From that point on he must have somewhere known that she is the one.
Little did they both knew that shortly after in the September of 2007, he would be proposing to her on the beach in New Jersey. Later in 2008, they got married.
A Flashback From 7 Yrs Ago:
About Her Love:
Her hubby, Douglas Brunt used to be the President and CEO of Authentium, an Internet Security Firm that he later sold to become a writer and publisher. He has written ‘Ghosts of Manhattan’ which was a New York Best-Seller. Another famous book of his is ‘The Means.'
The Past Fling:
Before Brunt, Kelley was married to an anesthesiologist by the name of Dr. Daniel Kendall. They had been married on September 29, 2001, but were divorced by 2006.
The cause of their divorce was not revealed at that time until Kendall, in an interview with the daily mail replied to a comment made by Kelley that she had been betrayed by love as if indicating her previous marriage with Kendall.
In the interview, Kendall said that he had been faithful to Kelley all his life and that was not the reason they split. In reality, they both wanted a wife meaning that both of them wanted to work and there was nobody left to take care of the household. So it was a mutual decision to go separate ways and still be friends.
Megyn Kelly presently is happy to spend the rest of her life with Douglas Brunt and her children. The 45-year old seems more than satisfied with the way her marriage is going.
In her On-screen life, she appears on her show ‘The Kelly File’ since 2013. She started her journalism career after a brief involvement in law. She has an undergraduate degree in political science from Syracuse University and a JD in law from Albany Law School.
Tussle with Trump:
We all know that Donald Trump and Megan Kelly are not on the best of terms and have had a lot of on-air disputes. On the most recent update to this story on October 2016, Megan Kelly has yet again clashed against one of Trump's attorney.
While Megan was in discussion with strategist Julie Roginsky and attorney David Wohl related to Donald Trump's sexual assault cases, David started to undermine the situation and make reasonable charges like the victim, Summer Zerbo's reading from the script.

This forced Megyn to speak out saying, "Oh, c’mon, David, she was nervous" adding "Because she was nervous and she wanted to get it right. The stakes are very high."
Wohl even started to blurt out things like the women assaulted weren't attractive enough and also marked to the accusers that he is, "“not the man I know.” to which Kelly graciously cut him by saying, "“Generally the sexual predators don’t do it to their guy friends.”
Megyn Kelly Leaves Fox for NBC
Fox News revealed that it has released Megyn from its contract early on and has agreed to her leaving terms. Using her free rein to join any possible news outlet, she chose NBC as her new home. After joining NBC, she has gained a massive following and has followed up on different controversial news segments and stories she wasn't given a chance to cover as part of the Fox News team.
Later on, she also thanked the network and fans for their support and said her goodbyes saying,
"Finally tonight, a personal and professional note, from me to you. After more than a dozen years at Fox News, I have decided to pursue a new challenge, This was a tough decision for me, because I love this show, our staff, my crew, my colleagues here at Fox, and you, those who write me the lovely handwritten notes, asking about my kids, and even those who -- very rarely -- complain on Twitter about our coverage after our show, or a presidential debate,"
She also answered the questions regarding her move saying that she wanted to take more time off to care for her children and family and their love.
A source followed up on her assertion and supported her decision saying,
"Everyone is, and was, putting so much emphasis on the money aspect and how no other network would give her $20 million. But no one was listening to what she was hitting at the entire time -- which was that she wanted a schedule that would give her more time with her kids and allow her time to focus on specials
It's more important for Megyn to see her kids off to school and be home for dinner with her husband -- who has done a great job of being Mr. Mom for most of 2016, something she credits him for often,"
In recent news, she has followed up on massively popular interviews and has brought the spark to NBC. Her interview/argument with InfoWars host Alex Jones really blew up in recent news, including her accusations about the host lying about the Sandy Hooks incident.
She further even confronted Russian President Vladimir Putin about his relations with the American President, Donald Trump stating,
“Do you have something damaging on our president?"
To which the Russian president responded with,
“This is just another load of nonsense. Where would we get this information from? Why, did we have some special relationship with him? We didn’t have any relationship at all. There was a time when he used to come to Moscow. But you know, I never met with him"
and further criticized her saying,
#Megyn Marie Kelly #Journalist #Political Commentator #Fox News Channel
We have a lot of Americans who visit us. Right now, I think we have representatives from a hundred American companies that have come to Russia. Do you think we’re gathering compromising information on all of them right now or something? Have you all lost your senses over there?
