With him spending so much time in the spotlight, it makes sense that fans have pressing questions about his personal life ... especially his love life. Specifically, viewers want to know: Who is Michael Strahan dating? Here's everything we know about Michael's current girlfriend, Kayla Quick, and his past marriages.

One thing about the former football star is that he is quite hush-hush about his romances (he's not one for PDA on Instagram, that's for sure). Back in 2016, it was reported that he was seeing Kayla Quick, who was in her 20s when they first started dating, which makes her 20 years younger than the retired athlete.

They were spotted out on dates together during several occasions from 2016 until 2018, but there hasn't been much buzz about their relationship.

According to what is presumed to be her LinkedIn page, Kayla is a self-employed health and wellness enthusiast who founded Fizzness, a beauty based wellness brand.

She’s also an angel investor for the brand Gorgie. Kayla graduated from the University of Tampa with a Bachelor of Business Administration and later attended Columbia Business School for angel investing.

Before Kayla Quick, Michael Strahan was engaged to actress Nicole Murphy.

Aside from being engaged to his two ex-wives, Michael nearly married Nicole Murphy — who is the ex-wife of actor and comedian Eddie Murphy — after five years of dating. But they eventually called it off.

The very public breakup happened after allegations surfaced that he was cheating on her. But despite all the drama, Nicole had nothing but positive things to say about Michael shortly after their split. "We will always be friends," she said at the time.

Who was Michael Strahan married to?

Michael has actually been married twice. He first married interior designer Wanda Hutchins back in 1992 in Germany.

Their marriage lasted just four years, as they called it quits in 1996. The reason why was kept on the down-low for years, but Wanda eventually revealed that it was because they were so young when they got married (Michael was just 21 when they said, "I do").

Michael then married for a second time in 1999 to Jean Muggli, but the marriage only lasted until 2006. So, why did they split? Jean claimed that physical assault and Michael being gay was the reason they ended it.

Her striking allegations against the TV personality forced Michael's first wife, Wanda, to stick up for him during that time as his name was dragged through the mud.

Does Michael Strahan have kids?

Yes. In fact, Michael is a proud dad to four children — and despite his divorces, co-parenting doesn't seem to be a problem for him. He welcomed his daughter Tanita in 1992 and son Michael Jr. in 1995.

While married to Jean, Michael became a dad to twin daughters, Isabella and Sophia, in 2004.

Michael often shares photos of his kids on Instagram, and by the looks of the pics, he's a great dad!

Details on Michael Strahan's daughter's brain cancer diagnosis.

In January 2024, Michael and his 19-year-old daughter, Isabella, shared an update on her health during an interview with GMA's Robin Roberts. Isabella revealed that she had been diagnosed with medulloblastoma and had to seek treatment for a tumor growing on the back of her brain. The symptoms started shortly after she began classes in fall 2023 at the University of Southern California.

Isabella says she suffered nausea, vertigo, headaches, and even threw up blood prior to the diagnosis. After seeking medical attention, Isabella was required to undergo emergency surgery at Cedars-Sinai to treat a four-centimeter tumor that had developed on her brain. After having gone through such a traumatic experience (and still recovering), Isabella is now documenting the details of her journey via her YouTube channel.

Our thoughts and prayers are with Isabella and the Strahan family!
