There are not many storylines that are better than the one where the main character starts from very low levels of his or her life before being able to achieve envious heights. This is exactly the kind of story that has been the life of Audrey Murdick, a certified nutritionist, a competitive bodybuilder, a personal trainer, and an occasional actress who went from being an obese teenager to a healthy adult. That said, it is her marriage to popular comedian and ventriloquist Jeff Dunham that plunged her into the limelight and made many come to know about her inspiring story. Since their marriage, the two have remained inseparable and together have two kids.

How Long Has Audrey Murdick Been Married to Jeff Dunham?

In early 2009, about a year after separating from his first wife Paige Dunham (nee Brown), Jeff Dunham began dating a certain Audrey Murdick. The duo dated for about two years before Jeff popped the question in December of 2011. On the 12th of October 2012, the couple got married in a winery wedding that was held in Santa Ynez, California at the Sunstone Vineyards and Winery and had about 112 people in attendance according to People Magazine.

While it was the first marriage for Audrey, it was Jeff’s second following his divorce from Paige Dunham, his wife of over 14 years who maintained his name, following their divorce. Following their wedding the couple gushed about each other to People, saying that they both went to sleep laughing and woke up laughing no matter what day it was. “We can’t imagine a love any better than this,” the newlyweds raved.

For the big day, Audrey wore a gown by Eve of Milady while her shoes were by Vera Wang, Jeff, on the other hand, opted for a classic tux by Armani. Jeff was accompanied down the aisle by his first daughter Bree, Paige’s biological daughter with an unknown man whom Jeff had adopted after marrying her mother. The non-denominational Christian wedding featured Roadie, the couple’s dog who served as the ring bearer. After their wedding, the couple honeymooned in Vermont and Napa Valley. They have since remained inseparable.

How Many Children Does Audrey Murdick Have With Jeff Dunham?

Audrey and Jeff Dunham waited for three years before welcoming their children; their twin boys named Jack Steven Dunham and James Jeffrey Dunham were born on October 11, 2015, in Los Angeles just two hours apart through vaginal delivery with no C-section needed. Their birth date happened to be a day before their parent’s third wedding anniversary.

The couple regularly share lovely photos of their twin boys on social media. However, Audrey had admitted that raising twins is not as easy as it might seem on her Instagram page. Using her experience, she took to her blog to share with her readers a list of 12 tips and advice on how to raise more than one kid at once. She wrote in her blog that she hoped that her experience and lessons learned from raising her twin boys would help make her readers have a smoother and stress-free experience with raising their own kids.

Some of the tips shared on the blog post include how to relax in the final trimester, spending money on the right things, choosing a paediatrician in advance, as well as a schedule on how to get organized.

Though Jeff Dunham shares two kids with his second wife Audrey Murdick, he is a father of 5 children. With his first wife Paige, he had three daughters, the first being Bree, his ex-wife’s daughter from another man whom he adopted, as well as his two biological daughters with Paige named Keena and Ashlyn.

Audrey Is Jeff’s Personal Nutritionist

After they began dating, Audrey would become Jeff’s personal fitness trainer and nutritionist. Before their wedding, she reportedly helped him shed some pounds to get ready for their big day.

Audrey who was born on the 29th of August, 1980 in Norco, California to parents Sally and Steve Murdick is an accomplished nutritionist. Her journey to becoming passionate about wellness and nutrition began at an early age. When she was a teenager, she was overweight and needed to change her eating habits, leading her to learn more about dieting. In addition to dieting, she took yoga and spin classes but by 21 years old, the results were only minimal. Murdick only began seeing significant changes when she added bodybuilding to her weight loss routine.

The new fulfilment she found in being in charge of her body shape and weight further motivated her to pay close attention to what she was eating, prompting her to then become a nutritionist. At the end of the day, her personal journey towards becoming a healthy person led her to launch a career where she would be helping other people get into shape. Today, she is not only a nutritionist but a trainer and fitness model. On her website, Murdick gives healthy and delicious recipes for fat loss, life and sanity, body talk, and good eating. She said it excites her to be able to help people achieve a kind of balance in their own lives.

Audrey Murdick has also utilized the fame that comes with being married to a Hollywood star. She has taken her skills to social media (including a YouTube channel) and TV where she speaks about issues concerning adopting a healthy lifestyle.

She has also got some acting skills and has featured in films such as Minding the Monsters (2012), Achmed Saves America (2014), and The Thieves Guild (2015). She has further served as the producer of Incredible Edible America (2017) where she and her husband toured American kitchens and tasted different kinds of dishes.

Audrey Murdick Sued Jeff Dunham’s First Wife Paige Dunham For Cyberpiracy

The Hollywood Reporter in early 2015 reported that Audrey had filed a lawsuit against Jeff’s first wife Paige for cyberpiracy. This was after she discovered in 2012 that Jeff’s ex-wife Paige registered several domain names involving her name including AudreyDunham.com, AudreyDunham.net, AudreyDunham.us, and AudreyDunham.biz.

This was a time when she had just become engaged to Jeff and Paige did this in order to prevent her from using the name to register her business online. Paige had perhaps also come to know that Audrey after her engagement to Jeff had filed for trademark registration on “Audrey Dunham” for personal fitness training services and consultancy.

When Audrey found out, she asked Paige to transfer the domain names to which she demanded tens of thousands of dollars in return. Audrey would then be forced to file the lawsuit requesting damages for about $100,000 per domain. While details of how the pair settled the case are not known, it is obvious that Audrey got what she wanted as she operates her blog with the URL audreydunham.com.
