Daniel Kendall's Married Life With Former Wife Megyn Kelly

Daniel and Megyn first met in Chicago at a street festival. At the time, Kendall was a third-year medical student, and Kelly was an attorney.

At first, they remained as friends as Kelly was dating someone else. But soon after she broke up with her then-boyfriend, the couple started dating.

After their divorce, their neighbor revealed:

'It seemed simple, he wanted the 2.4 children, and she didn't.' 

The doctor also admitted what the neighbor said and explained:

"It is fair to say that I wanted to start a family at some point and she wasn’t at that point, and yes, after we split that is what we told neighbors, but really there was more to it than that. She probably needed more emotional support than I could give her, and the same for me."

He further added:

"It is just a matter that sometimes two personalities can clash. I wanted a wife and she wanted a wife — we both needed someone to cook and clean and support us. She has very much a Type A personality. I couldn’t imagine her staying at home."

"She needed more of a Type B husband. Sometimes with two professionals it doesn’t work out, we were both working extremely hard and both excelling at what we did. It is just a matter that sometimes two personalities can clash. So we broke up, it was mutual."

Even after the divorce, the former couple remains friends, and the anesthesiologist even appeared on Kelly's show in 2011 to discuss the case of doctor Conrad Murray.
