Jennifer And Matt Woodley: Kids, Still Married?
Matt and his wife, Jennifer Woodley were still married as of 2021. Together, they share four kids – Michael, Molly, Mackenzie, and Miles; who were 9, 8, 6, and 5 years of age respectively then.
Unfortunately, their elder daughter Molly was born prematurely at 24 weeks and suffered damage to her brain. She then had to go under surgery to remove a quarter of her brain after living with severe seizures for nearly four years.
Struck by the lightning again, the duo’s second daughter Mackenzie started showing “the first signs of a malformation in the skull that caused her brain to squeeze into her spinal canal” in June 2020. The condition was so severe which could eventually lead to full paralysis. Thus she needed brain surgery as well.
The duo didn’t tell other kids about Mackenzie’s condition immediately.
Reportedly, Matt and Jennifer held their wedding circa 2009.
Did you know: Before Jennifer was nominated the CEO of the Make-A-Wish foundation in 2019, her daughter Molly was a recipient of the foundation’s generosity. She was later given a trip to Walt Disney World.
Jennifer, who was dismissed from her in July 2020, was scheduled for sentencing on July 20, 2021.
