After the arrival of their second baby, the pair's relationship began to deteriorate, and both parties blame their early marriage for the breakdown of their union. They sought separation in 1996, and Hutchins was granted a sizable amount of money as support payments as part of the lawsuit. Oftentimes, people don't think the ex-lovers are not a pair because of how well they get along. Following their divorce, they concurred that Hutchins should have custody of the kids. She is also paid $2,500 per month to nurture both children.

Who is Michael Strahan?

On November 21, 1971, Michael Anthony Strahan was born in Houston, Texas, in the USA. He played for the New York Giants for the entirety of his 15-year NFL career, helping them win Super Bowl XLII in 2007. On a football scholarship, Michael went to Texas Southern University, where he won the Division I-AA Defensive Player of the Year award, the Black College Defensive Player of the Year award, and first-team all-Southwestern Athletic Conference honors. He was selected by the New York Giants after graduating in 1993, but his first five seasons were marred by injuries, thus he didn't become well-known until 1998.

Strahan won the NFL Defensive Player of the Year award that year and also established the record for the most sacks in a single season. He resigned from football on June 9, 2008, after spending 15 years with the Giants. In 2014, he was admitted to the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Following his retirement, Michael became a co-host on the football program "Fox NFL Sunday" and later hosted "Live! with Regis and Kelly" as a stand-in. Regis retired two years later, he was asked to co-host, and the program was renamed "Live! with Kelly and Michael" as a result.

Additional Affairs

At a spa, Michael Strahan struck up a relationship with Jean Muggli and tied the knot in 1991. On November 30, 1964, Jean was born in Carson, North Dakota, and works at a store that sells cosmetics. In December 2004, she gave birth to Isabella and Sophia, a set of identical twin daughters. The marriage, according to Muggli, was unstable and unpleasant and she accused Strahan of betrayal and cruelty. In 2006, the couple sought a divorce. In the divorce deal, Jean earned $15 million, plus an additional $18,000 monthly for child support. The $3.6 million New Jersey mansion that belonged to the couple was divided equally between the two, and Muggli sold her portion of it for an additional $1.8 million. The settlement for this divorce was among the most costly in the history of sports. Although Strahan spends a lot of time with her daughters, she has sole custody of them.

Michael Strahan proposed to Nicole Mitchell in August 2009, but their engagement ended in 2014. The retired NFL player's present romance is a little contentious. He was seen with Kayla Quick, a woman twenty years his junior, when they were on the Upper East Side. Since the divorce, Wanda has avoided the spotlight, although there are rumors that she started seeing a mysterious man and gave birth to their son Dorian.

Wanda Defended Michael Against the Accusation

Wanda Hutchins hasn't appeared in public since her split from her spouse, and she leads a quiet life. She has, nonetheless, been entangled in scandal before, most notably in Michael Strahan's second divorce. Alas, Jean Muggli had asserted during the court that Michael was gay. Wanda, though, spoke inwards and cleared her ex-husband of the charge. Yet, compared to his last divorce, Michael was still required to pay a far higher payment per kid. Due to Wanda's nice nature, she did not accuse or scold her ex-husband during their divorce. She also asserted that throughout and after their divorce, her ex-husband was a caring and responsible father. 

Her remark had a significant effect and helped Michael during his divorce from Jean. She also backed up her ex-assertion husband that Jean was a terrible match for Michael and even accused her of being cruel for suffocating her kids to death. As an outcome, it appears that Wanda and her ex-in-law have patched up their dispute and that they now get along well. Michael even apologized for not appreciating Wands' greatness and lauded their friendship following their divorce. In 2016, there was yet another controversy when a man by the name of David Brown proclaimed that Michael Strahan was his father.


Wanda runs a business called Wanda Home Designs and is a gifted interior designer. In addition to this, she has served as the vice president and executive director of Strahan Global Outreach, a nonprofit that provides families with supplies like furniture and appliances.
