Jerry Springer’s love for his Family

After three years of their marriage, the couple welcomed their daughter in 1976 and named her Katie Springer. Unfortunately, their daughter was born with certain disabilities: legally blind, deaf in one ear, and she didn’t have a nasal passage.
Jerry, who used to live in Cincinnati, moved to Sarasota, Florida back in 1998 as the couple wanted to live near the water, and the house was selected by his wife.
Jerry’s daughter, Katie, graduated from Barat College in May 2001, and after five years, in December, she got married. At her reception, the father and daughter shared a beautiful dance together which Jerry had been practicing with his dancing partner Kym Johnson.

During an interview in 2006, Katie praised her father saying that he would make a great president.
"I will stand up to anyone verbally who attacks my dad because he’s wonderful… he would make one hell of a President. I think people don’t realize what a huge heart he has. If my dad could change the world and make it better for everybody, he would."
After two years, in 2008, Jerry was blessed with a new family member as he became a grandfather. His grandson was named after Jerry’s father, Richard Springer.
In an article back in 2011, when Jerry was asked about his grandson, he shared,
”He’ll be 3 years old next month and he still doesn’t have a job (laughs). He’s wonderful. He’s gorgeous, a lovely kid, and tall. He calls me `Opa.’ Everyone says that until you have your own [grandchild], you don’t realize it really is the best thing in the world. It’s like it’s absolute, true love.”
Jerry and Micki have been living a happily married life for about 45 years, and throughout the time, the couple has faced many ups and downs as well.
Although they have been sharing a beautiful bond with each other, a rumor about their divorce started swirling around. However, the couple has been standing beside each other so it is safe to say that their chances of divorce seem to be at the least.
The Jerry Springer Show
Jerry made his first television debut in broadcasting in 1973: the year he got married. Later in the year 1991, Jerry started to host the tabloid talk show The Jerry Springer Show where guests fight on stage, and exotic dancers perform on various episodes.
The show was later modified by Jerry and his producer in 1994 and it soon gained a lot of popularity. The show became the topic of controversies as it featured the non-stop fighting between guests and even inappropriate content for kids.
However, the show still got numerous views and it aired its 26th season in 2017. The Jerry Springer Show 2017 featured episodes like Pregnant After Threesome, Lesbian Strippers Share Their Cookies and many more. The episodes can also be seen on the Youtube channel of Jerry Springer which has more than 50,000 subscribers.
Jerry, whose net worth is estimated to be $45 million, has indeed earned a fortune from his show and the 73-years-old still doesn't seem to stop!
