While Michael Strahan’s career in the NFL and television is well-documented, less is known about Wanda Hutchins, who was his first wife. Let’s learn more about the life of Hutchins, her background, career, and role in Strahan’s life.
Her Early Life and Marriage to Michael Strahan
Born in Germany in 1973, Wanda led a relatively private life before her marriage to Strahan. The couple tied the knot in 1992, and this brought her into the public eye. During their marriage, which lasted until 1996, they welcomed two children: a daughter named Tanita and a son, Michael Anthony Strahan Jr.
Wanda also has another child named Dorian, born in 2001 — but the father is unknown.
Following her divorce from Strahan, Hutchins chose a path as a business owner as an interior designer, founding Wanda Home Designs. Besides, she was also involved in Strahan Global Outreach as vice president.
Despite the fame of her former husband, Hutchins has maintained a low profile. This approach has allowed her to focus on her business and personal life. As of now, she has no social media accounts apart from her business Instagram account, so there is limited public information about her career outside of her marriage to Strahan.
Wanda Hutchins’ Net Worth
As of 2023, Wanda Hutchins’ net worth is estimated to be around $2 million. This figure is a result of her career as an interior designer and her business ventures. Post-divorce, she received child support from Strahan, amounting to $2,500 per month, which also contributed to her financial status.

Following his marriage to Wanda Hutchins, he had a relationship with Jean Muggli between 1999 and 2006. The couple have twin daughters named Isabella and Sophia. Strahan was then engaged to Nicole Mitchell Murphy from 2009 to 2014. As of now, it’s reported that he’s been dating Kayla Quick since 2015.
