Meet Micki Velten, Jerry Springer Wife
Jerry Springer met his wife Mickie Velten or Margaret “Micki” Velten Springer during a blind date when she asked a co-worker to find her a date so she could go to a movie with her sister and brother-in-law. The friend set her up with Jerry Springer.
“It was the best blind date you could ever imagine,” Micki told the newspaper then. “He was totally different from anyone else I had ever dated. He was totally uninhibited. I guess it impressed me because I’m so worried about what other people think. Now, I realize that’s just Jerry.”
“I wanted to work with people,” Springer’s wife told the Enquirer. “Now that I’ve been in some of the schools, I’ve seen there are a lot of things you can do as a teacher. A lot of the kids just need a friend.”
They tied the knot in 1973. A 1974 article in The Cincinnati Enquirer, accessed through Newspapers.com, described Micki Velten as “the wife of Jerry Springer, but she’s not a politician’s wife.”
“She didn’t run for office, I did,” the newspaper quoted Jerry Springer as saying. The article quoted Micki Springer as saying, “I do go around to campaign with him. In the summer, I went to all the festivals. I can see myself in a situation where I could speak to small groups, but I am petrified of large groups.” The article says she doesn’t like public speaking.
However, Jerry’s personal and professional lives took a tumble in 1974 when it was discovered he’d solicited prostitutes on more than one occasion. “I realized that I couldn’t live my life with that hanging over my head, so I told my wife and my family, and then I told her family,” he recounted to PEOPLE.
In 1976, Micki and Jerry welcomed their only child, daughter Katie. She was born legally blind, deaf in one ear, and without nasal passages.
“That’s the end of the sad story,” Springer told PEOPLE in 1994. “The happy story is that she is a bright, exceptional kid who has really overcome a lot.” “She’s pretty much of a ham,” he added of Katie. ”She probably gets that from me.”
However, they got divorced in 1994. She was his only wife as he never married again. “My heart just wasn’t in it anymore,” he told PEOPLE at the time.
