Regarded as one of the most beautiful women in the News industry, Kristen A. Powers, a noted conservative political commentator, is today's subject of discussion. Today, we will have a closer look at Kristen's dating history and her present relationship status. Off we go then.

Powers had a fling with the erstwhile Congressman Anthony Weiner in 2002.They continue being good friends even after their relationship terminated. Though Powers defended him at beginning when the story of Weiner's sexting scandal surfaced in May 2011, she later condemned his conduct and called for his resignation from Congress.

2. Marty Makary:

Later, Powers married American surgeon and medical commentator Marty Makary in January 2010. Marty and Kristen reportedly went through a sour divorce in 2013. 

The self-proclaimed Christian met Marty while she was woking for the Washington Post in Washington DC for the first time. The couple dated awhile and were seen together in reputable functions and a number of politicians and celebrities attended their marriage.

3. The Christian Man:

She was motivated to change from atheist to progressive Christian when she dated a religious Christian man in her mid 30's. He also introduced her to the Redeemer Presbyterian Church in New York City and the teachings of its pastor, Tim Keller, who opened the door for her to have faith in God.  After a long delay, she joined a Bible study, an experience that changed her life.

In 2015, she told that she was going to become a Catholic.

4. Marriage with Robert Draper:

In November 2016, Kristen and American writer/Journalist Robert Draper announced their engagement shortly after making her switch from Fox News to CNN and expressed how happy she was to take Robert as her future husband.


@draperrobert decided to #putaringonit ... so I get to marry my best friend and love of my life.
