How Did Mika KleinSchmidt Meet Brian?
Mika Kleinschmidt and Brian met in high school, but the meeting was just by chance. It happened that Ellen, Brian’s mother, convinced him to join the choir at Riverview High School but a mistake by the school admin landed him with a girls’ choir in which Mika was a member. He rehearsed with the choir for a few weeks and became friends with Mika during that time. However, they didn’t start dating until later.
According to Brian, he was too shy to ask her out in high school but admired her from afar. In his post on the event of their fourth year marriage anniversary, he wrote on Instagram, “20 years ago I was too shy to ask you to homecoming … Nine years ago I finally got the nerve to ask you on a date … and four years ago we said, ‘I Do!'”
They Dated Other People Before Finding Each Other Again in 2011
Many years after high school, Brian and Mika reconnected, but by then, they had already dated other people. Brian even went on to get married. He was married to Ericka Dunlap between 2007 and 2011, and they were on Amazing Grace Season 15 together.
Fate brought Mika and Brian together again in 2011. This time, it was fitness that brought them together. Brian was the owner of Anytime Fitness, while Mika was a fitness teacher. On October 10, 2015, the couple tied the knot in an intimate wedding ceremony attended by a few friends and family. Mika and Brian are living their best lives while raising a daughter named Jade. They also have a dog named Bear.
Is Mika Kleinschmidt’s Daughter Adopted?
Jade is the only child of the couple for now, but Brian is not her biological father, and she is not adopted either. She is the child Mika had in a previous relationship before she met Brian again. Mika Kleinschmidt’s daughter was born on February 11, 2009, about two years before Mika and Brian reconnected. This goes without saying that Brian is not the biological father, as he was still linked to Ericka Dunlap at the time.
However, the identity of Jade’s biological father has remained hidden. She has taken Brian’s last name and sees him as her father. The family lives happily together as one.
