The American broadcast journalist Tony Dokoupil is living his dream life- a prolific career and blissful family life. With the inclining career, on one hand, Tony is relishing an enthralling family life with his news anchor wife and 1-year-old son, on the other.
Today, let us help you to have an insight into Tony’s personal life, his professional career, and the net worth that he has been able to assemble from his job.
Wedding, Wife & Son
Back in 2015, Tony had no idea that he would be meeting his future wife in the makeup room. Reportedly, the news correspondent met his now-wife, Katy Tur, while working at MSNBC.
It took no longer for the duo to realize the strong chemistry between them. They eventually began dating and after almost two years of relationship, Tony got down on one knee. The lovebirds got engaged in the year 2017.

In the same year in October, the duo eloped in Utah. According to a source, the pair wanted to get married in a “nondenominational ceremony in the middle of the desert in Utah.”
One of their friends said,
“They deliberately picked a place where there will be no cell service and no one around them talking about politics. No setup, no altar, just in front of rocks. Katy said it would be ‘just us and the earth.”
With the blessing from their parents, Tony and his girlfriend-turned-fiancée Katy got married in a private wedding ceremony with their own vows. They later had a celebration party for their friends and family.

Two years after tying the knot, the lovebirds welcomed their first child, a son named Theodore ‘Teddy’ Dokoupil, on Saturday, April 13, 2019. Kasie Hunt announced the arrival of Theodore on-air stating that tiny Teddy, mom, and dad are all doing great.
First Marriage & Ex-Wife
Tony is said to be married twice but there is no information about his first marriage. Likewise, the details of his first wife are nowhere to be found.
If the rumor of his first marriage is true then we must agree on the fact that the American anchor has kept the information about his divorce with his ex-wife quite secretive.
However, it is known that he has two children from his past relationship. When Kasie Hunt announced the arrival of Theodore she gushed about his big brother and sister stating,
“In Katy’s own words, ‘Many smooches and snuggles later Theodore, mom, big brother, and big sister are wondering if they make a swaddle big enough for five.’ ”
