On Raising Son: Son's Dating Life

Marilyn, 59, is a loving mother, who celebrated her 56th birthday with son Adam, 29.

Adam is a Canadian radio host famous as the cohost of Blake and Wylde show on KiSS 92.5's, entertainment reporter for Breakfast Television, host of Your World This Week on Rogers Cable Channel One, and a host of Steve Dangle Podcast. 

In an interview with ‘Inbetween’ on February 7, 2014, Marilyn Denis spoke a lot about her struggle with parenthood. She expressed how difficult was it for her to raise a son until his adulthood as a single mother. She was kind enough to share some of her own experience.

"Listen to what they’re saying and what they’re not saying. Instead of banging out advice, just listen more than you speak. And even with a hectic schedule, never shrug off your child’s request on a whim. I know parents are all tired and tend to say, ‘Ya, OK, go ahead,’ but I never said that. I would tell Adam, ‘I need 20 minutes to think about a decision that you’ve been thinking about for the last week and you’re just telling me about it right now. If I say ‘no’, it’s my call. That’s it.’ There were a lot of nos.”

Denis opened up about dealing with her grown-up son who was a tumultuous teen. For Denis, it was important to give her son enough space to breathe as he grew up but at the same time to ask him certain crucial questions. This led to a lot of confrontations that he wouldn't like. At one point, things got so stressful that Denis accidentally dropped the F-bomb on Adam, and he didn’t talk to her for 2 weeks.

Speaking of her son, Adam Wylde is actually all grown up and following in the footsteps of his mother. He is best remembered as the co-host of Kiss 92.5's ‘Blake and Wylde Show alongside Blake Carter. They have a great chemistry on set.

It turns out that someone has seized his heart. He mentions her as the love of his life.

He revealed on Breakfast Television on July 11, 2016, that got engaged to the love of her life in Paris on the Millennium Bridge in London. His fiancee Caprice Conners, a fashion enthusiast and personal stylist according to her twitter account (@CapriceC7) also joined him on the show after he retrospected the whole proposal moment. The newly engaged couple then played a game with the Breakfast Television Personalities Melanie Ng (anchor/reporter), Frank Ferragine (Weather Specialist), and Dina Pugliese (co-host).
