Penn And Kim Holderness Relationship
How Did Penn And Kim Holderness Meet?
During an interview with the Carolina Parent, Penn talked about the story of how he met his love, Kim Holderness. The lovebirds first met somewhere in the years 2002 and 2003 in Orlando. Kim was a news reporter there in Orlando whereas Penn worked as a sports reporter for a different TV station in Orlando.
Pen had no one but the nature of his job to give thanks to for his relationship with Kim. He told, “When you work in local news you get off at 11:30, and there’s no one else to hang around with except for other people who work in local news. Everyone else is asleep!”
How Long Have Penn And Kim Holderness Been Married?
As of January 2022, Penn and Kim Holderness have been married for a little more than 16 years. The official The Holderness Family Instagram page wished Kim and Penn a happy 16th wedding anniversary on April 22, 2021. The Instagram post had three photos from Penn and Kim’s wedding and the caption went like, “Our marriage is now old enough to drive. Happy Sweet 16 @doublechinpennstagram. You are my favorite and it’s not even close.”
The couple met in Orlando, got married there, and then moved up to New York for better job opportunities.
From Penn’s interview with Carolina Parent, we got to know that Kim took a job for “Inside Edition” and Penn took a job at ESPN once they relocated to New York. Both of them lasted only three years in their job as they did not like their work as much as they thought they were going to.
The pair then had their first kid, Lola Holderness, in Tribeca, a neighborhood in New York. Lola was born on February 7, 2007. A massive fan of The Holderness Family would know that Lola also appears with her family on the YouTube channel, The Holderness Family. She made her YouTube debut with the video “Merry Christmas from the Holderness Family!! 2012” in December 2012.
What followed Lola’s birth was whole lotta stress and anxiety coming from the pressure to apply to a preschool in New York for the Holderness parents. “Let’s get the hell out of here!” is what Penn told to Kim at that moment. Therefore, the family moved to Raleigh, closer to Penn’s home.
Kim and Penn had two children by the end of the year 2009. Their second child, a boy, Penn Charles Holderness was born on December 23, 2009. He made his YouTube debut in the year 2012
