She also stated that she wrote “Take Heart, My Child” when she was pregnant with Hayden and then “Through Your Eyes” after her daughter was born. They were inspired by her own childhood teachings, which she wanted to pass on to her daughter and children all over the world. They are filled with messages of love, forgiveness, and hope.
Sean Hannity’s divorce
As mentioned above, Sean Hannity was in a marriage relationship with the former journalist Jill Rhodes for more than 20 years. The couple met each other for the first time in Alabama in 1991. At that time, Hannity was working for a local radio station and Rhodes was a reporter for the Huntsville Times. Sean Hannity said in an interview, “She was really talented-gifted, but I really just fell in love with the little picture in her column.
Many had warned Rhodes about marrying a guy from New York when the two decided to wed. Even the pastor had warned her but eventually performed their wedding ceremony. They finally decided to walk down the aisle in 1993. Together they have two children whose names are Sean Patrick and Merri Kelly. Their first child Parick was born in 1988 and their second child Merri in 2001.
Sean Hannity penned his first book to his family and he wrote, “They are the ones who put up with the long work hours I needed to invest in this project. They are the ones who make it worth doing — and make my life complete and happy on more levels than I can explain. I am blessed to have them in my life.” So after their breakup, Sean took the divorce to his heart and blamed his endless workload. He said that the cable news hot didn’t slow down, [and] it, unfortunately, broke his marriage.
Ainsley Earhardt previous relationships
Ainsley Earhardt has been already in a marriage relationship twice. In April 2005, she got married to Kevin McKenny but they ended their relationship with a divorce in 2009. After she married former Clemson University quarterback Will Proctor in October 2012. Together they share a daughter named Hayden but after roughly six years Proctor filed for divorce. It was after Earhardt announced their separation amid allegations that he had been unfaithful and they got finally divorced in 2019.
Ainsley Earhardt was reported to be in a relationship with Fox News personality Sean Hannity in August 2019 according to Vanity Fair. They were spotted together attending a wedding ceremony at Trump National Golf Course in Bedminister, N.J. during the COVID-19 pandemic. But the two haven’t opened up about their relationship with the public and media.
Earhardt has told that she is currently focused on raising her daughter. About Sean has said, “as anyone at Fox News will tell you, Sean is a wonderful person and whomever he chooses to date will be extremely fortunate.” But she has also said that she is not dating anyone so it is still unclear whether they are in a relationship. It was also revealed that she had been hosting the “Fox & Friends” program from a remote studio in the basement of Sean’s Long Island mansion. `
Ainsley is open to marriage and wants more kids
After Earhardt’s divorce from Will Proctor, Proctor had said that there is not one ounce of truth to the allegations that he had an affair and he was disappointed that the private matter had become public. He added, “I remain focused on and committed to being the best dad, and maintaining a friendship with my wife even though she has decided to move on.”
But despite her two failed relationships, she is still open to marriage as she told that she would love to find love again and she wants to demonstrate a loving relationship for Hayden one day. She added, “She is not sure when that will be. I know that God will put the right man in my life if that’s his will, and he’ll do it in his time.”
However, her biggest priority is to raise her six years old daughter Hayden while enjoying a thriving career on Fox News. As mentioned already, she shares her daughter with her ex-husband Will Proctor and the reason they got separated was allegedly due to his relationships. Earhardt has told that the two live near one another in New York City and are focused on amicably co-parenting.
Luckily she has a job that makes spending time with her daughter easier as she has t work only in the morning and can spend the rest of the day with her daughter Hayden. She is ready to have more children as she has even frozen her eggs in case she decided to expand her family in the future. She gave birth to her daughter at a late stage in her life in her 40s so she would be open to that one thousand percent. She also said, “If I met someone who had a lot of kids, that would be great. I just love being a mother, so I won’t rule that out.”

It is also revealed that Sean Hannity and Jill Rhodes are still close despite their divorce. We can say that they remain on very good terms as they still have family dinners and attend tennis tournaments for their children.
