According to The Sun, Kyrsten was previously married to Blake Dain. Not much is known about their time together, but they attended Brigham Young University together.
In an interview with AZ Central, Kyrsten hinted that Blake is several years older than her. But when the publication asked for more details, she responded, "I don't really think that's any of your business. Not a lot of people ask young men in politics."
What we do know is that Kyrsten married Blake on Oct. 7, 1995, in Portland, Ore. However, they were only together for a short period, divorcing on March 18, 1999.
