As a child, her family moved within California a lot—first to Corona, then to Temecula, where Marissa reportedly finished her high school education. She attended Centennial High School and went straight into business upon graduation. As far as we know, Marissa Deegan did not attend college.

Marissa Deegan Has Been Brian Deegan’s Wife for over 19 years

The 46-year-old celebrity wife and mother have been married for a few decades and her love story is one of the sweetest ever. She and her athlete husband, Brian, allegedly met back when they were teenagers. What began as puppy love soon blossomed into a mature, serious romance that lasted throughout their teens till their late twenties.

They dated for approximately eight years, and even had their first child together, before finally deciding to get hitched. Their wedding ceremony was surprisingly small and only had about 20 people in attendance, including close family members. When they were getting married, Marissa was 26 years old while her baby daddy was 29, meaning Brian was only three years older than Marissa.

At the time, Brian was beginning to make waves in the motocross world and had just won two gold medals at the 2002 Aspen Winter games and the 2003 Los Angeles Moto X games respectively. Their marriage has been relatively open to the public, but there have been no scandals or controversies surrounding them in about 30 years of being together.

Marissa Deegan’s Children

Marissa and Brian have three children; Hailie, Hudson, and Haiden Deegan. Their first child and only daughter, Hailee Deegan, was born on July 18, 2001, in Temecula, California. She was born over two years before her parents got married and is 22 years old.

Hailie Deegan isn’t just the spitting image of her famous father in looks, she also took after him in her career as well. This is mainly since she grew up among racers. Before she got into high school, Hailie had already picked up a serious interest in the sports and was constantly participating in teenage car racing competitions.

As a high school student of Rancho Christian High School, Temecula, California, Hailie began racing by riding dirt bikes and off-road racing. She made the transition to asphalt in 2016 and began pursuing a career in stock car racing professionally in 2018.
