Misty McMichael Age
According to our sources, Misty McMichael was born on 31 August 1970. Meaning, she was 50 years of age as of now, i.e. April 2021.
Furthermore, since she had her birthday on the 31st of August, her zodiac sign was Virgo.
Misty McMichael Maiden Name
Misty McMichael’s maiden name was Misty Davenport. We do not know much about her family before her marriage to Steve. Although, we have dug out a couple of family members: Johnny Davenport, who was 68 years old, and Mozelle Davenport, who was 87 years old.
We do not know what relation Johnny and Mozelle were to Misty.
Misty has lived previously Romeoville, Illinois, and Chicago, Illinois. Most likely, Romeoville was her hometown, where she was born and grew up.
Misty McMichael stands at a height of 5 ft 7 inches, which is slightly above average height for a white American woman.
Misty McMichael is not present on social media. We could not find her on Instagram, and neither on Twitter nor on Facebook.
Misty McMichael Job
This is the part, we know nothing about Misty. Right now, it was highly unlikely that she had any job as she was taking care of Steve, who is almost immobile (read in the next section). That must be a full-time job by itself.
And if Misty ever had other jobs in the past, there was not much information about that on the web. Interestingly, her husband had a net worth of over $3 million.

Misty And Steve ‘Mongo’ McMichael: Wedding, Kids
Misty has been married to Steve McMichael, the former star American football player, for over 20 years. Their wedding was in 2001, although not much was known about the wedding ceremony itself.
Misty and Steve had the first and only kid, a daughter they named Macy, in 2008. As of April 2021, little Macy was 13 years old. And already, it looks like she was going to find her father very different from what he used to be.
Most recently a piece of news came out that Steve had been diagnosed with ALS (Amyotrophic Lateral Sclerosis), a nervous system disease that disrupts the brain’s ability to communicate with the muscles.
Steve’s condition was so dire that he could not even lift his fingers. He had to be fed by his wife and helped in the bathroom by his wife and had to be given sponge baths by his wife. It seems he was completely dependent on his Misty at this point in his life.
Misty was also so busy helping her husband around and the work was so difficult that she had neck and back problems herself. But the problems for Misty and the family were not only of hard work but also of finances.
The medical bills for such a disease were so high that Misty was really finding it difficult to balance the income and expenses. And since the condition was long term, and more likely to deteriorate, the bills were going to go up.
Thus, Misty and the other well-wishers of the McMichael family had set up a GoFundMe campaign. The crowdfunding was supposed to help Steve and Misty and young Macy as well to sustain the economic burden by allowing Steve’s fans to chip in.
