Josh Gates and Hallie Gnatovich’s marriage and kids
Gates and Gnatovich got engaged in 2013 and later got married in a private, invitation-only ceremony in 2014. Their wedding took place in Maine at the Hidden Pond Resort.
Gates met and worked alongside Gnatovich on the set of Destination Truth. Although the host and his ex-wife met on the set of Destination Truth, Gnatovich was there as a researcher rather than an actress. In 2008, Gnatovich was consulted on five episodes and three in 2012.
Gnatovich first appeared on the show in season 2 and continued until the end of the season. Likewise, she is the owner of Hallie G Therapy, a mental health facility. Through her talks, she inspired and educated others.
Furthermore, the host and his ex-wife are proud parents of two children. Their first child, son Owen Gates, was born on February 12, 2016.
Gates’ favorite Destination Truth episode was when his ex-wife informed him of her pregnancy via satellite phone. He was overcome with emotion after hanging up the phone. He eventually informed his team and the rest of the audience.
Their second child is daughter Isla Amelia Gates.
Is Josh Gates dating in 2022? His dating life and relationships
Gates is not dating anyone in 2022, so he does not have a girlfriend. Gates talked openly about starting over in their dating life after his divorce from his wife, Gnatovich.
The host has been living alone ever since and is now focusing on furthering his professional career.
Previously, Gates and Erin Ryder are rumored to be dating after four seasons of Destination Truth together. Rumors were bound to spread after spending so much time together in front of the camera.
The rumors began in 2010 when the on-screen coworkers started working together. Ryder took to Twitter to dispel rumors that she was secretly dating Gates and the lack of confirmation. Ryder also pointed out that the host is married to Gnatovich, a stunning woman who is also the mother of two of Gates’s children.
For the time being, rumors about their affair were put to rest. Later, it was confirmed that Ryder and Gates are good friends. Apart from that, they have no other relationship.
