BatDad, which is the character played by a man named Blake Wilson was famous for his adaptation of the iconic comic book character into modern parenting. On Vine, he had over 3 million subscribers and regularly recorded several millions of views for his videos.

BatDad started off as a $10 investment made by Blake Wilson during a routine shopping trip with his family. While shopping for toys, he saw the Batman mask and just as soon as he got into the car, he filmed himself playing with his children as BatDad and the decision to upload the amusing video on Vine gave birth to a character and online career that has spanned over five years.

Although she prefers to keep her life away from social media, she has a social media presence of her own. You will find her @jenjens22 on Instagram where she has managed to amass over 200,000 followers.

Things might still be going alright for BatDad’s social media career but not so much domestically. In March 2019, Blake Wilson confirmed that he and his wife, Jen had separated and were no longer husband and wife. The split, which was announced on social media was met with disappointment on the part of fans who had come to enjoy Jen’s role in some of the videos posted by BatDad.

Regardless, BatDad and his wife are maintaining a cordial relationship as co-parents for their children, four kids named Taylor, Kaya, Sienna, and Ben.
