The Untold Truth Of Sean Hannity And Ainsley Earhardt’s Relationship
Romance has been brewing at Fox News! Or at least, that’s what rumors would have us believe.
Hannity star Sean Hannity is allegedly in a romantic relationship with Fox and Friends anchor Ainsley Earhardt. The scuttlebutt broke when Hannity and Earhardt reportedly attended the 2019 wedding of Fox host Pete Hegseth and Fox producer Jennifer Rauchet. According to Vanity Fair, Hannity and his plus-one supposedly upstaged the bride and groom by arriving via helicopter. “Hannity and Earhardt aren’t acknowledging their relationship to colleagues,” the magazine reported, but it seems they were certainly playing the part at the nuptials.
“I do not discuss my personal life in public,” Hannity said, per a spokesperson. Earhardt followed suit: “Right now I am focused on raising my daughter. As anyone at Fox News will tell you, Sean is a wonderful person and whomever he chooses to date will be extremely fortunate,” she said in a statement. “I am not dating anyone.” Those responses sound polished and pointed, right?
There is plenty gossip suggesting there’s more to this story. Here’s the untold truth about this dynamic duo.
Sean Hannity & Ainsley Earhardt got cozy during the pandemic
Both Sean Hannity and Ainsley Earhardt have been married before, but both are now single – though we didn’t know Hannity was on the market until recently. (More on that in a minute.)
According to Page Six, Hannity and his ex, Jill Rhodes, tied the knot in 1993 and remained together — at least on paper — for more than two decades. They share a son named Patrick and a daughter named Merri Kelly. Earhardt divorced her husband, financial advisor Will Proctor, in 2019. They wed in 2012 and share a daughter named Hayden, per People.
Rumors about a romance between Hannity and Earhardt picked up momentum during the coronavirus pandemic when the news stars were spotted social distancing together. According to Page Six, Hannity lives on Long Island and Earhardt “rented a house in the Hamptons during the pandemic.” She has reportedly been using his at-home studio to host Fox & Friends remotely.
“They have been quarantining together in Oyster Bay,’ an insider told Page Six. “They are 100 percent dating,” another source said. At this point, their relationship may be an “open secret,” but sources tell People it’s unlikely Hannity will break his silence anytime soon. “He’s very private, because he’s very famous and he’s very controversial,” an insider said.
Earhardt, on the other hand, has been more forthcoming about her relationship goals.
Ainsley Earhardt wants more children
While Ainsley Earhardt continues to deny any romantic connection to Sean Hannity, she did speak candidly with People in October 2019 about her dreams for the future. She is divorced from Will Proctor but doesn’t want to stay single forever and hopes to give their daughter, Hayden, a positive example of love.
“I would love to find love again and I want to demonstrate a loving relationship for Hayden one day,” she said, adding that she’s trying not to force anything. “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,” she said, per People.
Earhardt also spoke candidly about her desire for more children and what she’s done to make that a possibility. “I have frozen my eggs, so I am prepared if I decide to have more children. I had Hayden so late in my life, and I’m in my 40s, so I would be open to that 1000 percent,” she said. “If I met someone who had a lot of kids, that would be great.” She added, “I just love children and I love being a mother, so I won’t rule that out. . Maybe I’ll adopt a child, we’ll see.”
Sean Hannity is a ‘workaholic’
While Ainsley Earhardt spoke candidly about her dreams for the future, Sean Hannity has chosen not to divulge intimate details about his past, present, or future.
In June 2020, news broke that he and Jill Rhodes, his wife of “more than 20 years,” had divorced. According to Page Six, “Friends of the former couple say they have been legally divorced for more than a year and separated many years prior to that, but kept it under wraps.” Hannity and Rhodes have remained cordial and committed to co-parenting their two children, the Daily Mail reported.
Hannity and Rhodes did not share details about their divorce, but that didn’t stop sources from speculating on the cause. “Sean came from nothing, had a workaholic upbringing and between his shows, books, speeches he just didn’t slow down, it unfortunately broke his marriage,” an insider told the Daily Mail.
We can’t help but suggest that a relationship with Earhardt might be perfect. They clearly understand the demands of their careers, and when it comes to home life, she has said she’s open to being part of a blended family, and Hannity is supposedly “a huge family man.” Guess we’ll just have to wait and see.
