The Ex-wife of Television Personality Atz Kilcher
However, this happiness has come for Atz after much heartbreak. His first marriage with Lenedra Carroll was a total failure. The couple divorced in 1981 after years of marriage.
Since Carroll separated from her husband when she was only in her late twenties, so there is a high chance she dated again or got married. However, her relationship after Atz Kilcher is not disclosed in public.
Mother of Three Kids
Lenedra shares three children with her ex-husband Atz Kilcher. The pair welcomed their firstborn Shane Kilcher on May 5, 1971. Three years later, On May 23, 1974, the couple became parents to daughter Jewel. Their youngest child Atz Lee Kilcher was born on August 26, 1976.
Carroll, both sons, live in Alaska with their families. They also appear in the show "Alaska: The Last Frontier" alongside their father and other family members. On the other hand, her daughter Jewel left Alaska when she was just fifteen and is now a Grammy Award-nominated singer-songwriter.
Lenedra has only these three kids, but her ex-husband has one more child Nikos Kilcher from his relationship with a woman named Linda. What is more, he is also step-father to Hannah Schwiesow and Karl Schwiesow.
Relationship with Her Children
Lenedra separated from her ex-husband Atz Kilcher when her kids were very young. Her youngest child Atz Lee was just five years old.
Furthermore, after divorce, she left her children with their father. Thus, she did not have a deep bond with her kids while they were growing up.

However, after Jewel became a famous singer, she contacted her and reignited the relationship. She even became her manager and handled all her finances.
Sadly, the relationship did not last long. Jewel, in an interview with HuffPost Live in 2015, stated that she has not talked to her mom since 2010. She further added that she found that her mom was misusing her hard-earned money, which was pretty heartbreaking.
