CNN Personnel's Married Life 

Jim Acosta and his ex-wife, Sharon Mobley Stow, share three lovely children together. Among the three children, two are daughters and one son. But sadly, the proud father has not mentioned the name of his sweethearts anywhere, keeping them away from the media's limelight.

Going by Jim’s Instagram, he is very close to the children as he frequently takes his children to different locations. Adding to the happiness bundle, the star anchor added an adorable fur baby to the family whom he loves to share about on his social media.

The relation of Jim is ecstatic with the children. On the other hand, fans - for years - remained unaware of his relationship with his now-ex-wife, Sharon Stow. However, in a rare 2015 interview, he alluded to his married life by revealing,

"There are lots of sacrifices you have to make, but so far I think we've been able to maintain a healthy balance and enjoy it along the way."

The world had the opportunity to meet Jim's ex-spouse Sharon following the divorce between the two.

Divorce From Ex-Wife

In early 2017, Jim and his then-wife Sharon, a registered nurse by trade, began living separately. June that year, divorce proceedings started to take shape.
