Anne Hegerty was born on 14th July 1958, in Westminster, London.

Dubbed as one of the smartest women in the world, Anne has established herself as a competitive quizzer.

Is Anne Hegerty Married? Children?

Anne is not a married woman. However, there was information on Wikipedia that suggested that Anne was married to a guy named Jake Hester.

When fans on Twitter asked Anne about her husband as per Wikipedia, she replied,

Is that nonsense still on Wikipedia? I’ve never knowingly met a Jake Hester! 

From that statement, it is clear that Anne is not married to any Jake.
