They reportedly dated for years before getting married in 1973. Like any marriages, Jerry’s marriage with Velton too began quite exceptionally.
Having just begun professionally in politics, Jerry’s wedding was a closed affair with very little hype in the media industry. Among a very few friends and family, Springer’s marriage with Micki was intimate and a romantic affair.
In fact, Jerry never came out very loud about his wife and marriage and gave a required space to his personal life. Call it his responsibility as a husband or his ability to keep his personal and professional life separate.
As ironic as it sounds, Jerry who hosts his show The Jerry Springer Show, which is a lot about relationship advice, and saving marriages could not save his own love at the time.

Talking about Katie, she was born blind and was deaf in one year. As a grown-up, Katie is pretty positive about her parents. In one of her conversations in the media, she appreciated the unconditional love of her parents and said.
I’ve heard this story that when I was first born and they heard about all these problems, they just said, ‘we’re never going to treat her different, we’re going to make sure she knows she’s not different.
As of 2021, Katie is already 45 and married. She also reportedly has a son with her husband. Unfortunately, the details about her spouse and son are not identified yet.

His Controversial Relationships
While Jerry has not officially addressed his relationship stature, the host was alleged of having had several sexual relationships when he ran the show, The Jerry Springer Show.

Jerry Springer is morally bankrupt. Producing his show in the late ’90s was only a small part of our job. Our real job was to get pretty girls, strippers and porn stars for Jerry to sleep with. “Besides that, most of the guests were fake. The people making the show knew it — and didn’t care
