A new season of Expedition X arrived on the Discovery Channel on 2 August 2023. Trio paranormal experts Phil Torres, Josh Gates, and Jessica Chobot also returned with the show and kicked it off with a super-creepy episode with the title “Ghosts of Eloise Asylum”. In a decaying mental hospital in Detroit, Josh Gates, along with his paranormal researcher colleagues Phil and Jess, were shown investigating reported hauntings.
In this writing though, we thought we would discuss one of these supernatural connoisseurs’ personal life. We picked Phil Torres and, therefore, here is a tell-all about Silja Danielsen, his wife.
Meet Silja Danielsen, Expedition X Star Phil Torres Wife
Silja Danielsen married Expedition X Star Phil Torres on 23 September 2018. This happened at the Nordic Heritage Museum in the Ballard neighborhood of Seattle, in front of 130 guests. And they picked this date to honor Silja’s late father Petter Danielsen on his birthday.
Their wedding included a traditional Viking hand-binding, swapping the rope for a vine of greenery, and whatnot. They were at the time thinking of drying and pressing the vine so as to frame it and hang it in their home.
Silja and Phil first met in 2014 through a mutual scientist friend and, after a few years of friendship, realized the one had been right there all along. Later, in August 2017, Phil took Silja to Fedje, a small Norwegian island where Silja’s grandparents got married, and asked her to marry him.
Last year on their anniversary, Silja had taken to her IG to gush: “I always said that finding the one is like growing another limb… you are yourself but you are stronger and can do so much more with the support of the one you love! I love you forever and always, Happy anniversary @phil_torres ❤️🥰.”
Among other things, Phil and Silja are truly bounded by their love for nature and traveling. On most days they are likely to be found hiking in the Amazonian rainforests, boating on the Norwegian fjords, or running along Nicaraguan beaches.
Phil Torres And Silja Danielsen Kids
For now, Phil Torres and Silja Danielsen just have one kid. It’s their daughter Atlis Bjear Torres who came to them one fine day on 20 March 2022. When that happened, Phil had taken to his social media to announce they now have a baby girl. After telling everyone she was born on the night of the Spring Equinoxour he also gushed that both his and Silja’s “hearts have grown.”
Fast forward to 20 July 2023, showing several pictures of them holding a much-grown Atlis, Siljia wrote on a post about one of these pictures perfectly capturing exhaustion as parents while on the road for months at a time for work.
