Rick Kirkham has stepped into the spotlight once again after Netflix’sTiger King‘ docuseries highlighted his relationship with the eccentric big cat owner, Joe Exotic. Kirkham was the one with the cameras rolling at all times and is privy to quite a lot of what went down in Exotic’s everyday life. Accordingly, he has been the subject of future explorations into Exotic’s zoo and what ultimately landed Joe in prison.

Ever since the docuseries aired, Kirkham has been careful to express his regret at having worked for Joe and has highlighted the difficulties he faced as the documentary maker. That said, Kirkham is a veteran who’s worked for Inside Edition before taking up Exotic’s gig. While his professional life is undoubtedly commendable, Kirkham has been somewhat private about his family. Curious to know if Kirkham is married and has kids? We have the latest news and updates.

Rick Kirkham Wife:

Rick first got married in the 90s, which was when he was working for Inside Edition. Tami, his wife at that time, could not stand Rick’s addiction to the news and drugs. The couple was living in Plano, but eventually, Rick split with his wife. As you know, Rick currently lives in Norway and is a freelance reporter for BODØ NU apart from being a producer, director, and cinematographer working at RealReels Productions and Consulting.

He is married to Kristin E Rosøy Kirkham. Rick proposed to her back in September 2017, and the two got married in 2018. You can check out a throwback image Rick shared when Kristin became his fiance.
