Michael Strahan’s girlfriend Kayla Quick
Before getting together with Kayla Quick, Michael Strahan had been married and divorced two times. His first wife, Wanda Hutchins, was a businesswoman, interior designer, and home decorator. Strahan and Hutchins were married from 1992 to 1996.
He was then married to his second wife, Jean Muggli, in 1999 but they were divorced by 2006. Strahan was then engaged with Eddie Murphy’s ex-wife, Nicole Mitchell in 2009 but later called off their engagement in 2014.
Now, let’s learn more about Michael Strahan’s current girlfriend, Kayla Quick, and how the couple met.
Kayla Quick was born on October 17, 1989, in Port Charlotte, Florida, to Gerard Alan Quick and Mary Kay Quick. She also has a sister named Kara Lee Quick.
Her mother fought and survived cancer. Quick’s father served in the United States Army where it sent him to different bases before settling in Port Charlotte. Unfortunately, Gerald Quick had a criminal past despite being part of the US Armed Forces. He was arrested 19 times for various crimes such as aggravated assault with a deadly weapon and drug possession. He then died in 2012 at the age of 54.
On the other hand, her sister Kara Quick works as a cook in Fort Lauderdale, Florida, and a model from time to time. However, she was also arrested in the past for having large amounts of Xanax and Stilnox in her possession.
This brings us to Kayla Quick. At the age of 14, she was arrested for disorderly conduct after a fight broke out in her hometown of Port Charlotte. She was then taken into custody as a juvenile at that time.
Before getting together with the Pro Football Hall of Famer, Kayla Quick was with her high school sweetheart Justin Hundley.
In 2005, she had another encounter with the police as Justin and Kayla were arrested after they were accused of breaking into her then 83-year-old grandmother’s house in Port Charlotte and stealing $6,000 worth of jewelry.
Margaret Cox, her grandma, then told the police that she will be pressing charges after her neighbor told her that she saw Justin and Kayla hanging out at her house. The following day, Quick confessed and was turned over to juvenile authorities once again.
Justin Hundley, her ex, said that Kayla Quick was a ‘good girl’ before high school.
“It was like a switch was flipped,” he said in an interview with Radar Online. “Almost overnight she became this huge partier.”
As for her work, Kayla Quick spent a few months as a cocktail waitress at a Tampa strip club called “Thee Dollhouse”. During her time working there, there were reports stating that she was good at hustling customers and she could clear up to $2,000 a week.
In terms of Kayla Quick and Michael Strahan’s relationship, it is believed that the couple first met at a bar in Port Charlotte where Quick was working as a waitress. Afterward, they were spotted together during a 2015 Super Bowl after-party, seemingly confirming their relationship.
Aside from that, the couple is doing a great job in keeping their relationship private, especially for Kayla as it is not easy to adjust after suddenly becoming famous for dating a well-known person. Despite keeping details of their relationship private, the couple is not afraid to be seen in public.
Michael Strahan seems to have no problem with Kayla Quick’s past. He said that he was in a serious relationship during his guest appearance in the show Watch What Happens Live.
