Spencer Shemwell Late Wife, Aimee, Kids
Spencer Shemwell lost his first wife Aimee to a car crash. On November 13, 2017, Spencer and his wife were running errands with their children when the family van was T-boned by a semi-truck in Front Royal, Virginia, and Aimee (age 29) died instantly.
What’s more unfortunate is that Aimee was pregnant with her 5th kid at the time — the baby could not be saved.
Spencer shares 4 kids with Aimee namely Brayden, 12, Harper, 8, Avery, 6, and Bexley, 4 (ages in 2021).
The two were married on December 22, 2007, and were over a month away from celebrating their 10th wedding anniversary before Aimee passed away.
According to his second wife Erica, there were moments when she thought Spencer wished that his late wife was here instead of her. Though this wasn’t the best thing to do, it let his fans know how much he missed her. And for that, we forgive him.
After his wife’s death, Spencer shared that the hardest thing to do was to tell his kids about their mother. He recalled saying,
“Mommy passed away.”
With tears in his eyes, he added,
“I thought there was no way that I could ever love anyone like Aimee.”
Trivia: To help Spencer raise his kids, a fundraiser campaign was organized by Jason Wright with a goal of $75K. By 2021, it had raised over $41K.
Erica And Spencer Shemwell: Wedding, The Blended Bunch
The Blended Bunch stars, Spencer and Erica Shemwell first met online via a widower support group. Soon, after meeting at a Utah conference, they went on their first date on November 24, 2018. And just within 13 months of dating, two then held their wedding on January 22, 2019, in Provo, Utah.
“This (marriage) came with challenges,” Erica spoke about their time together. Over the episodes, we could see her having panic attacks, unable to breathe. But at the end of the day, she was happy they got to “do this together.”
In addition to Spencer’s four children, Erica contributes seven kids to the family — namely Landon, 12, Emma, 10, Lily, 9, Sophie, 8, Tanner, 6, Amelia, 5, and Caleb, 3 (ages in 2021). She mothered the kids with her late husband Tony (who lost the battle to cancer).
After the marriage, Spencer’s brother-in-law Quinn wasn’t happy with Erica’s decision about taking her second husband’s last name. He said to Erica,
“As your brother, I think about if I died, I don’t know if I would want my kid to have somebody else’s last name.”
