Let us take a peep into the life of Julie Chrisley, the matriarch of the Chrisley household!
Julie Chrisley’s relationships and marriage
Julie Chrisley had started dating Todd Chrisley in the early 1990s. It was said that she had never been married before her marriage to Todd. But it came to light that she had a previous marriage with a man called Kenneth Wayne Childress. He was a pipefitter at a construction field and also had a passion for motorcycles. The two were married on 15th March 1991 and they had applied for a marriage license on 13th March 1991.
The copy of this marriage license was obtained by RadarOnline and it clearly shows that the two were married. Julie Chrisley’s name has been put as Julie Hughes on this certificate and this is Julie’s maiden name.
However, this marriage did not last long and the two separated. Kenneth died on 27 November 2012 and is survived by two brothers and a sister. The death notice on the website of Davenport Funeral Home in South Carolina states that he was never married and has no children! Perplexing and surprising!
In spite of all this past, Julie started dating Todd and married him in May 1996. She was pregnant during this marriage with her first child with Todd. This child named Chase was delivered on 1 June 1996. Their daughter Savannah was born on 11 August 1997, and they had a third child, a son called Grayson on 16 May 2006.
Todd had a previous marriage with Teresa Terry with whom he got divorced. He has two children; Kyle and Lindsie with Teresa. There were some tense and bitter moments in the relationships between Julie and her husband due to the new revelations. But they continued with their marriage for the sake of the reality show.
