Phil and Mireya

The pair have been happily married for years now and have been together since September 2013 when they met in Jackson Hole, Wyoming.

In 2021 he adorably announced that the pair had been together for eight years with a Facebook post captioned:

8 years together, today, my beautiful wife. Life with you. Mireya Mayor. Just gets better and better. My love is truer, madder, deeper. Tonight’s addition to the ever-growing list of reasons I love you is watching you walk from the restaurant to the car, during a torrential downpour in your bare feet.


They were married on 23 September 2016 and haven’t looked back since – we’re not crying, you are!

Mireya has five children with her ex-husband

Before meeting Phil, Mireya was married to Roland Wolff, however, they ended up getting divorced, but she also shares five children with him.

Phil and Mireya do have one child together called Mia Audrey Valentina, who they hilariously used to nickname Whale Sharl.

Phil is originally from London, UK but has lived in the US for years now and resides in Pinecreak, Florida with his family.
