Today Show host Megyn Kelly and her husband, author Douglas Brunt, were seen out for a stroll through New York’s SoHo neighborhood on Tuesday.
The pair, who have been married for just under a decade seemed happy and at ease with each other, as they chatted and walked hand-in-hand in the posh neighborhood.
Kelly, 47, and her husband seem to have struck the right balance between her schedule and family time.
Brunt, 46, who is a New York Times best selling author, said last year that they try their best to preserve their weekend as time for family.
The happy couple strolled just ahead of her exclusive interview with Pro Football Hall of Fame quarterback Brett Favre, who will be among former athletes interviewed about concussions and their impacts on their personal lives during Thursday’s ‘Megyn Kelly TODAY.’

The pair were out for a walk, and seemed to have found the right balance with family time and her hectic schedule
In June of 2017, while promoting his third novel, Trophy Son, on the Today Show with Kathie Lee and Hoda, Brunt explained the importance of family time in their household, despite their hectic schedules.
‘We do want to give them opportunities to try different things,’ he said, referring to sports and extracurricular activities, but ‘we try to preserve our family time on the weekends as much as we can.’
Brunt has also come to her defense when negative stories have been published about his news anchor love.
In 2017, following the Golden Globe Awards, Vanity Fair published a story claiming Kelly had shown up to the party with a massive security detail, Brunt took to Twitter to slam the article.
‘Another fact-free piece from @Sarahlellison. Even her 1st ‘fact’ is wrong: @megynkelly went to party w/me-no guards. Accuracy worse from there,’ he tweeted. A few moments later he added, ‘Almost as bad as In Touch Wkly. Irresponsible reporting not worthy of @VanityFair.’
The pair married in 2008, and the following year, they welcomed their first child, a baby boy named Edward Yates Brunt.
Two years later, they added another edition with Yardley Evans Brunt and, in 2013, they welcomed their third child, Thatcher Bray Brunt.
Kelly was previously married to anesthesiologist, Dan Kendall, from 2001 to 2006.
Kendall and Kelly remain friends. He even appeared on her show in 2011 when she was desperate for an expert to discuss the case of Conrad Murray, the doctor charged with involuntary manslaughter in Michael Jackson’s death.
‘I have a tremendous amount of respect for Megyn and I still like her as a person,’ her ex said. ‘I just want what is best for her and her family.’
Kendall told DailyMail.com about his marriage and subsequent divorce to Kelly.

‘I believe working two jobs, the long hours of corporate law and part time news together with my long hours of medical training took a toll on our marriage,’ he said.
‘I was working very hard and very long hours and we found our interests to be in different places. Let’s just say I really loved sports and she was never a big fan of ESPN. We just grew apart.
‘It is fair to say that I wanted to start a family at some point and she wasn’t at that point, and yes, after we split that is what we told neighbors, but really there was more to it than that. She probably needed more emotional support than I could give her, and the same for me.
‘I wanted a wife and she wanted a wife — we both needed someone to cook and clean and support us. She has very much a Type A personality. I couldn’t imagine her staying at home. She needed more of a Type B husband. Sometimes with two professionals it doesn’t work out, we were both working extremely hard and both excelling at what we did.
‘It is just a matter that sometimes two personalities can clash.’
