Marriage and children are an important aspect of one's personal life. The decision of marriage is taken after being assured that he/she is the right person with whom you would like to share your married life. But the result of your decision comes later after the marriage only, and the decision could be the wrong one too.

A failed marriage does not subside the chances of falling in love and having a romantic union again.

MNBC's journalist, famous for the 'Morning Joe' Mika Brzezinski's shares a similar story as she listened to her heart and found love again while being married to her husband. Also, Mika's only two daughters are known to the media but who is the third one let's find out.

Mika Brzezinski Gets Married To Joe Scarborough!

Mika Brzezinski had feelings for her longtime co-host Joe Scarborough. And it became necessary to acknowledge the feeling, after her divorce with her former husband, Jim Hogger. Finally, she listened to her heart and got engaged with Joe Scarborough as per recent reports on May 4, 2017.

In an interview with Vanity Fair Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough described how their relationship evolved recently on May 4, 2017.

Mika described her feelings for her fiancé Joe Scarborough which was bottled up for years and said,

“Over the past year and a half, I realized I had to face these feelings and that it was time to stop putting them in a box, it was not an easy process and it was not an easy set of decisions for either of us. It was something I couldn’t deny anymore.”

Mika’s partner Joe Scarborough has been married twice before, and he thought he would never marry again. But working every day with Mika Brzezinski gave him hope of romantic union and said,

“Then it occurred to me that with us working together and being live on the air every day for three hours that we were forced, no matter what disagreements we had, what misunderstandings we had, to work through it and get right with each other by 5:59 a.m.,” 

After a romantic journey that was triggered by time spent together, both Mika and Joe called out their engagement in 2017 at the Hotel Du Cap in Antibes, France.

The duo who were popular for being secretive about their relationship broke a massive happy news on 25 November 2018, about tying the knot together and entering a blissful marital journey.

Like their entire relationship, their big day was also carried out away from the public's attention. With no formal invitations sent to their guest, the duo carried out their wedding, calling 14 of their family members and swapping vows in a place anyone least expected it to be.

Mika outlined her big day's event by saying:

“We wanted it to be really small and simple and not what you expected from Mika and Joe, everything we do is exposed, and everything felt exposed every step of the way, so we want this to be private until it’s over. We wanted to recognize it more quietly and have the people who are most important to us around us. And you know, our show is a cocktail party every morning.”

With few people and four kids of Joe from his previous relationship and two from Mika's prior marriage, the pair tossed their new beginning by exchanging kisses and wedding ring, just to welcome more happy days ahead in their lives.

Mika Brzezinski's Third Child?

But before getting married to her long-term partner Joe, Mika shares a life that was completely focused on her kids and work. Her love for her job was so immense that she chooses to refer it as her third child.

She updated her Twitter and Instagram bio saying that she is somehow raising her two children while balancing her third child, her job. She is maybe trying to remind everybody how she does not take her work lightly by giving it a similar importance as her family.

Mika has balanced her professional as well as personal life. Even with all the busy working hours, she takes out time for her family and spends quality time with them as evident in her Instagram posts below.

Mika is the mother of two gorgeous daughters, Emilie, and Carlie Hoffer with her ex-husband, a fellow journalist, Jim Patrick Hoffer. Mika and Jim met when Mika Brzezinski worked for WTIC-TV in 1992 which was by chance the workplace of Jim Patrick Hoffer as well.
They fell in love and eventually exchanged wedding vows and got married on October 22, 1993.

There were rumours of a love affair among the happy couple. But they continue to live their life on a newly bought 1920’s English Tudor-style house located in Bronxville.

However, with time, the rumour turned out to be true, and they ended their married life in divorce.

Mika Brzezinski Divorced with Jim Hogger!

MSNBC’s journalist Mika Brzezinski quietly divorced her husband of 22 years, Jim Hogger as per reports in June 2016. The divorce was finalized in December 2015, and the spokesperson of MSNBC confirmed the divorce news and said,

“Mika’s divorce was finalized in the past year. She’s really grateful that it was done amicably and in private.

The spokesperson continued,

“So right now she is focused on her two teenage daughters, and on continuing to heal.”

Apart from being a great mom and journalist, she is also an animal lover. She frequently posts images of their pet, Cajun, a rescue dog of Hurricane Katrina.

Apart from that Mika has bought another pet dog, Hobson and shared a picture on Instagram on April 17, 2016.

Highly Ethical Journalist:

Mika almost burned her script when she was forced to read the news, on Paris Hilton’s release from jail as the lead, when she knew that Senator Richard Lugar’s break with President Bush was much more significant.

She had refused politely saying that political news has much more importance, but the network wanted to give that slot to entertainment just because it had more human-interest.

Mika protested this trivial journalism by almost burning the script but was stopped by co-host Joe Scarborough, so she instead tore it and shredded its copy. You can tell from this that she takes her job very seriously.

Forced to Admit Defeat:

When it comes to political views, Mika has always been a supporter of the Democratic party and is bound to be expecting a Democrat in the house. So, it is not a surprise that she is seen in support of Hilary Clinton. So, it must have been hard for her to admit how Donald Trump had the upper hand in the debate and said 

“I think, probably, we all think Hillary won, but my blood pressure kept going up throughout the whole thing — I could not stop watching until the very end because there was something that was telling me he’s going to do quite well out of this, and I can’t quite put my finger on it.”

The highly ethical journalist Mika Brzezinski has listened to her heart and gave herself a chance to live the beautiful romantic union with her finance Joe Scarborough. And all their fans choose to wish the duo many years of togetherness for them.
