Sophia’s Parents’ Had an Unsuccessful Marriage
Sophia Strahan’s mother, Jean Muggli is the second wife of her father, Michael Strahan. They met for the first time in 1994 in a spa when he was still married to his first wife, Wanda Hutchins.
After Micheal divorced Wanda in 1996, they soon started dating. After three years of dating, the pair tied the knot on July 18, 1999.
In 2004, the pair welcomed twins, daughters: Sophia and Isabella Strahan. However, after two years, they ended thier marriage citing irreconcilable differences.
After the divorce, Jean was awarded primary custody of their kids. According to the court orders, Sophia and Isabella had to go to therapy but their mother neglected their sessions. Similarly, they also were missing their volleyball and equestrian sessions.
This led Michael to claim that Jean abused their daughters. Recently on October 13, their father agreed to dismiss the claims against their mother after both of them got joint custody of their kids. The twins now get to spend a week at their father’s and a week at their mother’s.
