The two top Fox News hosts started out as ‘best friends’, but now this friendship has blossomed into a commitment so strong that they have blended their lives and families.
According to these exclusive images obtained by DailyMail.com, Sean Hannity, 61, and Ainsley Earhardt, 49, have now settled into domestic bliss, which includes traveling together as a family unit, three years after setting off dating rumors. Some days, Ainsley even films her show from Hannity’s house, where he has a studio.
Despite years of speculation, the two have kept quiet about their relationship.
“They are extremely happy together and have been for a while. It’s not a surprise to anyone who knows them, but they’re very private people and prefer to keep their personal life private and lowkey. They started out as best friends and the relationship evolved over time. He’s a generous and kind guy and she is just an incredibly wonderful person,” a source close to the couple told the Daily Mail.
“They’re a really sweet couple with so much love for each other. Sean adores Ainsley’s daughter Hayden. Ainsley and Sean are genuine, lovely people who are both truly beloved at Fox News, so everyone at the network has been happy for them for a while. Sean was there for Ainsley through her mother’s illness last fall (she died in October 2022) and was by her side picking up all the pieces – she leaned on him during some extraordinarily difficult times,” the outlet added.
The Daily Mail reported: “Most recently, Sean, Ainsley and Hayden were seen spending time together as a family in late February during a trip to Palm Beach, Florida – where Hannity owns a seaside townhouse.”
“The Fox News pundit, who has two children of his own, has evidently developed a close relationship with little Hayden, whom Earhardt shares with ex-husband Will Proctor.”
