“My name is Tyler, and this is my dad. Back around the beginning of November, we happened to meet each other in New York. He went to stake his claim on existence. I found myself inadvertently immersed in the action. At this point, he is so miraculously significant to me that I want to laugh out loud whenever I think about him. “Jen tagged the Instagram photo with a caption. “Finally, the appropriate person showed up. Please share in our joy; we’ve earned it.”
Jen’s social media has been updated since she first revealed her relationship status. A vacation to Louisville, Kentucky that Jen and Tyler took in March 2022 appears to have been a huge success (and ate lots of good food).

“In just three days, he got to know my entire family: my kids, my parents, my siblings, my SIL and nephews, my best friends, their husbands, and my Legacy crew. We took him on a golf cart ride while singing some of his favorite country songs from the ’90s. With his assistance, two separate dinner events for 60 guests were a success. At @lindseyforreal’s and his birthday parties, he improvised a rap “Author: Jen.
“My mother and sister were moved to tears by his speech in honor of a cancer survivor. He was amenable to questions both nights; the first one began, “Jen and Tyler, I am a marriage and sex therapist,” and so on “she elaborated “Pictures were taken, books were signed, and toasts were made, but he stayed up much past his bedtime because he had discovered that my people don’t go home; they go out onto the porch. If my expression isn’t obvious, I’ll consider myself lucky. Plus joyful.”
