Daniel Edgar's Married Life and Children; Who Is His Wife?
The veteran and a true badass, Daniel Edgar's love life to his fans seem to be quite an unfair story with no specific moment to tell from.

Sure daddy sometimes turns cold stone towards his sons, Joey and Dwaine but there’s no denying that by doing this he is molding his sons to be a true fighter in every manner.
As to who was the mother who gave birth to Daniel’s heir is in itself a no less than an unsolved and untold story. So far we know that the name of Joey and Dwaine’s mother is Juanita Thomas Broussard.
But sadly who the woman is also another unfortunate tale. In fact, her name only came to make the headlines after her very last moment. Yes, you heard it right! His wife is no longer with him as she passed away some time back.

Daniel Edgar’s Major Milestone!
Given his grand time for Swamp People, you might probably go with sayings that there’s nothing more Daniel has to claim in rivers. However, you gotta re-think that notion.
In the month of February 2017, Edgar finally took the much awaited gratifying breath of his with the biggest catch ever in the history of swamp people.
For sixteen years, Swamp People’s were longing to tame their mythical monster “big bad” Grande Noir. And this was Daniel’s ultimate bull’s eye yet to be hit.
And finally, after 10 separate sightings and chances to kill, Daniel finally reached that breakthrough of his in the show’s premiere of Season 8.

In that very episode, the legendary gator, reportedly the fiercest, biggest alligator in Swamp People lore, finally met its fate thanks to the father-son teamwork of Daniel and his son, Dwaine’s stealthy hunting.
But it wasn’t easy, not at least in the way it sounds.

Despite the beginning of the then new season of Swamp People on History, the task was legendarily old.
From the evolution of Swamp People, the infamous Grande Noir residing in Franklin was no less than an Everest for even rebellious hunters. And so came the prodigal son and father duo of Dwaine and Daniel to finally caged this hard-to-get-to mucky lair at Black Bayou.

Observation of Grande Noir and his habits was keeping Edgar in the driver’s seat from its first sightings. In addition, the giant reptile was also terrorizing the vicinity at the same time. Consequently, the carcasses of local deer were also often used to float in the water.
So, the revolutionary hunt began first with Daniel getting his unusual approach of floating the airboat instead of the conventional raft.
In the end, it was Edgar’s methodical and successful snaring of Grande Noir that dominated the premiere. Alongside, his son Dwaine also learned that legends can be cut down with an observant approach to understanding the routine of their scaly enemy.
However, the chase wasn’t without competition at all. The other major contenders were another family of Tommy Chauvin, another late-bird, and his dedicated boss Jay Paul Molinere who also showcased the most dangerous macho stunts in the chase for the gator.
