According to HGTV, Mike and Denese Butler have three young children together. Even though their kids don't regularly make appearances on Fix My Frankenhouse, both Mike and Denese constantly post photos of their sons on social media.

Denese has talked about how challenging it is to balance being a mother with her career. She said that, “I’m superwoman, okay? When I say that, I'm talking about the fact that we have three kids. We’re dealing with Latin tests, parent-teacher conferences, things like that. That’s my version of superwoman — balancing the business and construction aspect with my kids and my husband too."

Mike has said that when it comes to having them both around to help, "They bring a different perspective. Both our dads are basically in their retirement years now, so they have a different outlook on the way we look at things. They question, 'Are you sure you want to do that?' — or we'll push them out of their comfort zone."

Both of their fathers have decades of experience in the construction field, and are usually seen on the show helping the couple out. "We lean on them for expertise, we lean on them for advice, and they also actually do physical work for us sometimes," Mike revealed.
