Here’s What We Know About Jillian Barberie’s Marriages, Kids and Net Worth

Jillian Barberie (also known in the media as Jillian Reynolds) is a Canadian-born television hostess who has also worked as a radio anchor, as well as an actress. The charming lady has also been a model but is perhaps most remembered for her work on Good Day L.A., a morning news and entertainment program that airs on the FOX-owned KTTV Channel 11 from 4 to 10 am every weekday. She worked on the show for seventeen years from 1995 to 2012. She has also anchored the Fox Sports pre-game show Fox NFL Sunday. More recently, she co-hosted Midday Live on the ABC-owned talk radio KABC 790.

Asides her glittering career, another aspect of Jillian’s life that gained public attention is the marital side. She has had a love life that many people consider quite eventful. Is she married or dating at the moment or just living the single life? Let’s explore the very busy love life of the TV hostess.

She was married for the first time to ex-MLB infielder Bret Barberie in 1996 but the marriage came to an end after six years, precisely in 2002. They did not have any child together, neither did they share the details of why they decided to call it quits. Her first husband played college baseball at the University of Southern California (US) and later had a prosperous MLB career that saw him play for four teams from 1991 to 1996.

Marriage To Grant Reynolds And The Birth Of Her Kids

After her marriage to Bret ended, Jillian Barberie found love with American actor Grant Reynolds. They dated for a while and tied the knot in 2006. Her second marriage outlasted the first by two years as it finally crashed in 2014. According to Jillian, the divorce was amicable and was blamed on irreconcilable differences.

While her union with Grant lasted, Jillian changed her legal name to Jillian Reynolds but she still used Barberie for professional reasons. By December of 2006, news emerged that Jillian was pregnant with her first child with the ex-sniper turned actor.

On 6th July 2007, Jillian was delivered of a baby girl who was named Ruby Raven Reynolds. Their second child is a boy named Rocco Rio Reynolds who was born on January 11, 2010. But while the world waited for the possible news of their third issue together, in 2013, Jillian announced that she and Grant were ending it. She filed for divorce on the same day she made the announcement and the divorce was finalized the following year.

Afterward, a custody battle ensued between them. Jillian sought to have the custody of their two kids and for Reynold to have the right of visitation and that both of them should share the legal fees. Eventually, she got what she wanted: she has the custody of the kids while Grant supports her towards their upbringing.

Is Jillian Barberie Still Married or Dating Anyone?

Since the end of her marriage to Grant Reynolds in 2014, we have not heard that Jillian Barberie got hooked again. It is possible that her career and the task of taking care of her two kids are keeping her too busy to care about romance. This is unlike her life before she had kids.

In the past, she has had a number of dates apart from her two ex-husbands. After her marriage to Bret ended in 2002, she was linked to a few men, including Johnny Gill and Rzeznik. She was also spotted in brief flings with people like David Spade, John 5, and Mario.

How Much Is She Worth?

As of early 2020, Jillian Barberie was reported to have a net worth of $8 million. She has accumulated this much by working on several jobs over the years. Apart from her work on KTTV and KABC 790, as well as her reality TV roles as earlier shared, she has also taken roles on CBS sitcom Yes Dear and Fox’s sketch comedy MADtv. She has also hosted the syndicated reality show Extreme Dating. Until December 2019, Jillian worked with KABC 790. At the time of posting this piece, we have no indication that her contract with KABC has been renewed but she is still active in her career as a TV personality among other endeavours.
