There is hardly any dog lover across the world who does not know the famous Mexican-American dog trainer César Felipe Millán. His dog-themed TV series titled Dog Whisperer with César Millán has aired in over 80 countries. A New York Times bestselling author of a couple of dog books, César’s fame rubbed off on his girlfriend of many years Jahira Dar.
Jahira was dragged into the limelight after César’s painful divorce from his former wife Ilusión in 2010. As one would expect, almost all of César’s fans wanted to know more about the new woman in the life of their hero. Most of them knew about the credit César has given to Jahira for helping him pick up his broken life after his divorce experience.
Outside that, what else do you know about the lady who has been described many times as a beautiful soul by César himself? Since you are here, chances are high that you are looking to know more about Jahira Dar. Find answers to the questions you have been asking about her below.
What We Know About Jahira Dar’s Background
Jahira Dar’s birth details show that she was welcomed into the world on the 1st of February 1985 in the Dominican Republic. Apart from these facts, Jahira has been very careful to not reveal details about the kind of childhood she had and the family she hails from to the world.
Dar’s is largely known for her relationship with the iconic dog trainer. However, long before she and César became lovers, Jahira was already making moves to become a star. She worked as a stylist and wardrobe consultant in the fashion and entertainment industry. Also, she sought a career in acting which seem unsuccessful as there is no film she featured in that was a hit. Her only recorded TV credit was in 2012 when she appeared in Dog Whisperer as Cesar’s girlfriend.
A Rundown of What She Does For A Living
It has been reported on several platforms that Jahira Dar is an actress because of the appearances she has made in a couple of episodes of her partner’s Emmy-nominated show Dog Whisperer. While we wouldn’t want to assert that the description is wrong, it is important to point out that she only appears on the reality show as the partner of César Millán and not because it is what she does.
So, what does she do for a living? Our findings reveal that she is a professional fashion consultant and stylist. As a fashion consultant, her work revolves around advising her clients who are often public figures on their choice of clothing, makeup, hairstyles, accessories, shoes, and fashion trends to enable them enhance their public image while creating a personal style.
She once plied her trade with the famous brand Dolce & Gabbana. But, presently, she works as a private contractor.
Jahira Dar’s Earning Power Compared To César’s
According to Chron and based on the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, the hourly pay for a fashion consultant varies widely between $50 and $500. The absence of an exact figure makes it difficult to estimate how much she earns. But then, having worked with a famous brand, coupled with her association with her famous partner which has shot her into the spotlight, we can safely presume that what she earns is at the upper side of the spectrum.
Given the above, we have not been able to ascertain Jahira’s net worth. However, she’s dating one of the most famous and richest dog trainers in the world. Cesar Millian has an estimated net worth of $25 million which is justifiable given the projects he has embarked on over the years.
Cesar Millan is an animal lover who has lived his life tending after animals. He was born on August 27, 1969, in Sinaloa, Mexico but relocated to the US at the age of 21. After working various jobs, he hit it big in showbiz when through Jada Pinkett Smith‘s advice he considered walking dogs as a career. He became famous as the brain behind the famous show Dog Whisperer with Cesar Millan on Nat Geo Wild and he is also a New York Times’ best-selling author.
A Sketch of Jahira Dar’s Love Life With César Millian
For Cesar Millian, 2010 was a year he can’t forget in a hurry as it came with its own streaks of bad luck. First off, he had to endure the loss of his beloved dog, an American Pit Bull Terrier named Daddy; he died on the 16th of February 2010 following a battle with cancer. As though that wasn’t enough, another bad experience reared its ugly head in less than five months: his wife IIusion Millan filed for divorce in June of the same year. What hit him the hardest was Ilusion’s move to have primary custody of their two adorable children; Ander and Calvin born in 1995 and 2001 respectively. She also requested $23,000 per month in alimony and an additional $10,000 every month for child support. From our findings, Cesar ended up making a single payment of $400,000.
Naturally, the bad experience crippled him emotionally and the heartbreaking anguish it caused led Cesar to consider suicide at some point. Luckily, he was able to take back his emotional health by resorting to intense workout sessions. Also, his encounter with Jahira Dar helped him heal quickly from the heartbreak.
It is not clear how they met but the two sparked a romance immediately after their meeting in August 2010, barely two months after Cesar’s wife left him. Within three months, Cesar who had fallen helplessly in love was already thinking of marriage with her. However, it was until 2016 that he proposed to her.
When Will They Get Married?
While some sources wrongly report that Jahira Dar is married to Cesar Milan, this is not true. Instead, they have been engaged since 2016. And, while some think their engagement is drawn-out, the lovers appear to be in no rush about calling their relationship a marriage.
There seem to be no wedding in sight as the couple hasn’t announced when it will happen. What remains undeniable, however, is the fact that they still show a prospect of eventually walking down the aisle as they continue to share a strong bond.
