Considered one of the most adorable couples, Wanda Hutchins' and Michael Strahan's divorce shocked the whole nation. 

The parents of the two children remained good friends after the split; getting back together was never an option for both as they went their separate ways after their divorce. 

Michael moved on his life and got married to another woman. But Wanda, who ages 50, didn't find love again. 

The main question here is why Wanda and her former beau had separated in the first place. If you want to find out, continue, and you will find answers to all your questions!

Michael Strahan and Wanda Hutchins Married Life

Wanda and Michael's relationships started way back in the 90s. Michael, at that time, was a 17-year-old student attending the Mannheim Christian Academy in Germany. It was then Wanda met her boyfriend, Michael.

Michael being a sports enthusiast, went to and fro between Germany and the state of Texas so that he could play football. And because of that, the couple had to maintain a long-distance relationship.

After a couple of years, Wanda announced her pregnancy in 1991 and welcomed their first child, daughter Tanita Strahan in November the same year. 

A few months later, the couple tied the knot in 1992. Then, the family of three welcomed a new member in 1994. Michael and Wanda had their second child, a son Michael Strahan Jr. in September.

Their children are all grown-ups now; Tanita is 29, and the junior Michael is 26.

Reason For Divorce

After being married for four years, the love-up couple decided to end their relationship.

The couple got divorced in 1996 but remained silent about the reason. It was only years later that Wanda came forward to reveal the cause of their split. She explained that both the couple was too young to have been committed for life, and thus they separated but with mutual understanding.

Michael, on his autobiography, Wake Up Happy: The Dream Big, Win Big Guide to Transforming Your Life, wrote that they would always be a family even if they would no longer be married.

After the divorce, Wanda flew back to Germany with her children. But Michael never fell behind from fulfilling his roles despite the distance. He was active from day one to be part of their life. He was constantly on planes and phones.  

Him being in his hometown of Texas and them being in Germany was hard, of course, but Michael took time off for what he loved, his family.

There was a time when Wanda's mother accused Michael of abandoning his kids; however, her claims were later disproved by Wanda. 

Post Divorce: Comes Forward To Ex-Husband's Defense

After the divorce, Michael got married to Jean Muggli in 1999. The couple was blessed with twin daughters, Sophia, and Isabella Strahan, born in 2004.

However, his relationship got an ugly end when Jean filed for a divorce in 2006, accusing Michael of physical assault. 

Jean even accused him of being gay, but Wanda being a sympathetic person, came forward to Michael's defense. She insisted that the former basketball player was a loyal husband and a loving father to his children. 

Wanda further mentioned that Jean was a cruel person and even wished for Wanda's children's death. She stated that Jean once angrily shouted at Wanda's children, saying, 

“I wish they were dead.”

Jean's evil demeanor was further revealed when Michael's father disclosed that he had warned his son not to marry her. He even sent a letter to his son Michael to be careful of Jean.

"Jean is a sick, evil lady. Mike was mad at me. My wife was mad at me, and Jean, of course, was mad at me. But I had to get it off my chest. Jean is sick. I’ve been praying for her for years. It’s a shame.”

The divorce was later settled, and the former football star was court-ordered to pay a sum of $15 million and a monthly alimony payment of $18,000. 

Michael Strahan Gives Love Another Chance

Post his second divorce, Wanda's ex-husband started dating again and this time with model Nicole Murphy. The pair even got engaged but later broke up in 2014.

When an engagement and two marriages couldn't work out, Michael gave another chance to a new relationship. He started dating Kayla Quick in 2015, and they are still together. The couple is rarely spotted together and often likes to keep their romance low-key.

As of now, Michael, age 49, is maintaining a loving relationship with his girlfriend while also sharing a healthy attitude with his ex-wife. Michael, who stands at the height of 6' 4¾" (1.95 m), is extremely close to his family and dearly loves his children.

His bio suggests that he currently holds a net worth of $65 million, and as he also works as a TV presenter, his net worth is supposed to go way more in the future.

Wanda's ex-husband - who reportedly took home a paycheque of $21.5 million in 2017 - is perhaps enjoying a peaceful time with his latest girlfriend: after the scandal of 2016 where a man named David Brown claimed to be Michael's son. But, that doesn't mean Wanda is living a life of isolation and loneliness.

Wanda Hutchins Now

Michael's ex-wife Wanda hasn't married to this day. However, she was in some dating relationships. She even went on to have a son named Dorian from one of her previous relationships.

She is now leading a content life in the company of her three children.

The family loves taking vacations at frequent intervals.

Wanda is reportedly single at the moment and has shown no interest in having an active life. She could have given up on baseless relationships and might be looking for her children to get married soon so she can have grandkids.
