Relationship with Bert Kreischer
When you are the subject of a lot of your husband’s comedy routines, you are bound to become a famous name. LeeAnn Kreischer’s relationship with her husband is as interesting as the personality of her husband.
To start off, they met three times before they started any form of meaningful relationship. The first two times, Bert Kreischer failed to make any positive impression on LeeAnn, and in fact, made zero impressions in the second time because LeeAnn never gave him her attention.
The third time proved to be the magic number as a party organized by Bert’s writing partner at the time gave her a chance to recognize the existence of Bert and who he truly was. Her curiosity drove her to give him her number and although she never expected to marry him due to his wild nature, that eventually proved to be the case.
Interestingly, the popular comedian who has no problem running around a school campus naked was too shy and nervous to call LeeAnn after he got her number, prompting LeeAnn to make the call herself, demanding an explanation. One thing eventually led to another and they started off on their first date, the second and the third and then eventually ended up at the altar in December 2003.
Since they got married, LeeAnn Kreischer and her husband have been able to raise two children, daughters who were born in 2004 and 2006. Their first daughter is named Georgia while the second is named Ila.
