The Canadian actor and writer Mike Myers have introduced some of the most memorable comedic characters in TV and film history. He is best known for the outrageously funny sight gags in the Austin Powers and his voice for Shrek in Shrek and its sequels. He also had a supporting role in the 2018 biographical musical drama Bohemian Rhapsody.
Mike got his break when he joined Saturday Night Live in 1989. Today, the 58-year-old actor has many acting credits under his name, received various awards and accolades, and also has a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Married Life And Wife
Mike Myers has been relishing a low-key married life with his longtime wife Kelly Tisdale. His wife Kelly is no stranger to the entertainment industry as she is a scenic artist by profession.
Before getting married to Mike, Kelly was in a relationship with musician Moby for around three years from 2001 to 2004. They even opened a café together named Teany in New York. It was a vegan tea spot that was closed in 2015.
Mike and Kelly started dating shortly after Mike’s relationship with his ex-wife Robin Ruzan ended in 2005. They even got married in 2010 but their marriage was private until Kelly confirmed it to the National Enquirer. She said,
“We're actually surprised you guys didn't find out about us sooner.”
The duo tied the knot in a private wedding ceremony in New York. Ever since then, they have been keeping their relationship private.
Kelly attended Suffolk University in Massachusetts from where she earned a degree in government and international affairs.
Mike Myers’ Children
Mike and his wife Kelly prefer to keep their married life under wraps but they sometimes give an inside look at their relationship and family life.
Married for more than a decade, the couple has welcomed three children. They are parents to three kids namely Spike, Sunday Molly and Paulina Kathleen.
Their eldest son Spike was born in September 2011. Three years later, in 2014, Kelly gave birth to the couple’s second child Sunday Molly. Spike and Sunday were joined by their third child Paulina Kathleen in 2015.
Mike has explained his kid’s quirky names while making his appearance on “The Late Show With David Letterman.” He chose Spike as his eldest son’s name because he loves Irish-English comedian and writer Spike Milligan. He also likes Spike Jones and the director Spike Jonze.
There is a bit of a back story behind his daughter Sunday Molly Myers' name. He said,
“Sunday is because me and my wife Kelly hate Sundays — I’m not even kidding — and we wanted to turn it around and make it a good thing.”
“Molly is because of my Auntie Molly in Liverpool, England, who was my dad’s sister but more like my grandmother who I love very much and she’s my guardian angel.”
Mike currently lives in New York with his family.
Ex-Wife And Divorce
Before falling in love with Kelly, Mike was married to Robin Ruzan, who is popular as an actress and comedy writer. The estranged pair met at an ice hockey game in Chicago and eventually began dating.
They got married a couple of years later on May 23, 1993. Mike used to refer Ruzan as his muse but their relationship couldn’t last long. They filed for divorce in December 2005.
