Holm filed for divorce from her college sweetheart after six years of marriage. Keep reading until the end to learn about the fighter’s relationship timeline and how the fairy tale ended.
Who Is Holly Holm’s Ex-Husband?
Holly Holm is ferocious when seen during her fight. Her punches are lethal but do you know what else is also lethal? It’s her beauty. Many fans adore her beautiful features and godly strength. But one lucky man succeeded in winning the boxer’s heart. And that person is none other than Jeff Kirkpatrick.
Just like Holly, Kirkpatrick was born and raised in Albuquerque, New Mexico. Holly Holm’s ex-husband grew up with his two sisters, Kristi Kirkpatrick Lamb and Lauren Kirkpatrick, along with his parents, Tom Kirkpatrick and Vicki Kirkpatrick. Furthermore, he graduated Magna Cum Laude with a double major in Finance and Accounting from the University of New Mexico.
Holly Holm’s ex-husband, Jeff Kirkpatrick, is the vice president of AAA Roofing Co, a family business founded in 1991 by his dad. Jeff is a private person, and apart from the little details regarding his profession, not much is known about him. He prefers to keep his personal life up to himself and has successfully managed to stay away from the media’s attention.
Unprecedented End To Their Marriage
The details regarding how and when the former duo fell in love are unknown, but it is revealed that Holly Holm married Jeff Kirkpatrick in Cancun in 2012. They dated for a couple of years before tying the knot. Holly Holm’s ex-husband was considered lucky to have such an amazing woman by his side.
Holm last posted a photo with Jeff in February 2018, which aroused suspicion among fans. In 2019, the news regarding the Holly Holm’s divorce broke. According to TMZ, the boxer filed for divorce citing incompatibility and conflict of personalities as the main reason for divorce. The estranged couple separated in March of 2018 and were no longer living as husband and wife.
But the news only broke out in 2019 when Holm filed for divorce. Holly had changed her legal name to Holly Holm-Kirkpatrick after marriage, so she asked the judge to restore her maiden name once the divorce is finalized.
Did They Have A Child Together?
As mentioned earlier, the divorced duo married in 2012 after dating for some time. The ex-pair were college sweethearts and met at the University of New Mexico, where she studied for a year. After six years of marriage together, the former couple had no children together.
So when Holly and Jeff’s marriage got to an end, there was no issue regarding child support either. Likewise, Jeff Kirkpatrick’s ex-wife claimed that neither party should get spousal support since both of them are self-supporting. So it must have been a smooth and clean end to their story.
Holm still hasn’t removed any of the pictures with her ex-husband, Jeff, on her Instagram. It could be the sign that the ex-couple indeed parted their ways on a good note, and though apart, they are still supporting each other in their individual endeavors.
