Megyn Kelly is one of those rare combinations of beauty, brain, intelligence and confidence who exude a certain amount of intimidation about herself which makes us wonder about the ins and outs of her life and so we proceed to peek a glance at this shimmering lady. Megyn Marie Kelly, born on 18th November 1970, is a journalist, former attorney, news pundit and a political commentator on the Fox News channel. Presently she hosts “The Kelly Fire” on weekdays from the network’s New York City headquarters. She has previously hosted America Live and co-hosted “America’s Newsroom” with Bill Hemmer.

Born in Syracuse, New York Kelly hails from a family of regular middle class people. Her father, Edward Kelly taught education at the State University of new York and her mother Linda was a homemaker. She lost her father when she was fifteen years old. Kelly attended Tecumesh Elementary school and later went to Bethlehem Central High School. After completing high school she obtained an undergraduate degree in political science from Syracuse University.

As a law practitioner she worked as an associate in a Chicago based law firm Bickel and Brewer LLP during which time she wrote an article for the American bar association’s journal ‘the litigation’. But it is as a journalist that she has made her mark. Her career as a journalist got a boost when she moved to Washington D.C and was hired by the ABC news affiliate WJLA-TV as a general assignment reporter. At the beginning of her career has covered various significant local and national events such as the confirmation hearing of the U.S Supreme Court justice Samuel A Alito, 2004 presidential election etc. She has played a major role in contributing in the legal segments for Special Report with Brit Hume and also has hosted her own legal venture. Kelly’s soaring $15 million net worth as an experienced political journalist and her remarkable efficiency in the field has prompted the CNN president to regret not hiring her earlier. Kelly received media attention because of her coverage of 2012 presidential election and while interviewing the opposition leader Karl Rove she gave some great examples of her wit and intelligence. Though she faced some amount of controversy in the light of her remark on a Slate article, she has been able to handle the situation with a perfect showcase of composed gentility and not to forget impressive brain work.

Her exact financial statistics are not much known but being included in the 2014 Time list of hundred most influential people it can be understood that she belongs to the end of high salary of the line. Kelly’s first husband was Daniel Kendall an anesthesiologist but the marriage ended in divorce. Her present husband Douglas Brunt is the president and CEO of Authentium and they have three children together. This impressive woman with a five feet six inches height and a slender body structure creates an aura of impressiveness among her viewers. She is active on social sites like Facebook and Twitter as well.
