Megyn Kelly said she couldn’t get through the throwback clip from her wedding to husband Doug Brunt on the couple’s 15th anniversary without crying and said it was “the single best decision” of her life.
During the Sirius XM “The Megyn Kelly Show” podcast on Wednesday, the host opened the show with a tribute to her husband before talking about their marriage as a video from their special day 15 years ago at Oheka Castle on Long Island, New York, played in the background.
“15 years ago today, I married Doug Brunt,” Kelly shared. “The single best decision of my life… It was a perfect winter day just like today, with a light snowfall outside as inside we burned wood fires and topped the tables with cherry blossoms just coming into season. It was my second marriage, Doug’s first, and I actually feel lucky that it was a second marriage for me. I went in eyes open, having learned a lot about what it takes to make a marriage work. Even more important, a lot about myself …”
The former Fox News host admitted when she first met her husband, he was different, “more reserved, less cocky” and called their romance a “whirlwind.”
“Our romance was a whirlwind – 14 months after we met, Doug asked me to marry him,” the host shared. “Within six months of that, we were married. Three kids later, we’re still going strong. I watched some of our wedding video, which we are showing you here this morning, believe it or not. I cried as my friend and stylist Sara did my hair and I saw the part with the vows.”
“I cannot get through this video without crying,” she added. “But why? Because it’s so optimistic, isn’t it? There’s something so beautiful about love and commitment … Over that 15 years, we’ve suffered loss – his dad, my sister, my nana to name a few.”
Kelly talked about the incredible joy of creating three humans with Brunt, sharing that it “feels like an accomplishment – not going to lie. All parents know, you look at your children and you think: Oh my God I will never do something more meaningful than this.”
As the video of her wedding day continued to play and we could see the huge smiles on both the bride and groom’s faces, Kelly shared some advice to young women about being able to find someone who gives you that “meaningful connection” not those “random sexual partners.”

“15 years in … this is where the pot of gold is – not in random sexual partners who don’t give a damn about you,” the host shared. “Not in weird new sexuality titles that pronounce you will sleep with anyone and everyone and often at the same time. Not in an all-in profession that asks so much of you there is no time for personal connection.”
The former NBC host closed out the segment thanking her husband for “asking me to marry you on that beautiful fall day at the beach in September of 2007. Thank you for meeting me down that aisle in Long Island on March 1st, and for walking next to me ever since.”
