Kelly Paniagua is a celebrity spouse who is famous as the wife of Australian actor, Julian McMahon. Her husband rose to fame through hits like Nip/Tuck and the Fantastic Four franchise. He is still getting that Hollywood recognition through his latter-day projects like FBI: Most Wanted, a spin-off of CBS hit crime drama, FBI.

But here’s a different perspective to look at McMohan’s life; through his current wife, Kelly Paniagua. The man who portrayed villainous Doctor Doom turned heads when he appeared in public with a gorgeously tanned model in 2014. And little did people know, that she was none other than his legit better half. So how did the romance spark? When did they actually wed? Are they still together?

Get the answers to all these along with some untold facts from the personal life of Julian McMahon down in the details below.

Kelly Paniagua Wed Julian McMohan In 2014

Kelly married Julian in Lake Tahoe, a marital venue on the edge of California and Nevada. The wedding took place in June 2014 in a small ceremony that included a fortuitous group of friends. New Idea states the now 54-year-old thespian had asked for the help of his daughter Madison for proposing to Paniagua, while they were on a plane to Paris.

McMohan later revealed he did it while the plane was still in the air. This was versus his original idea of popping up the question after they’d landed on the French capital.

Among the wedding attendees was Lady McMahon’s friend, Professor Ross Steele. However, as per the guest list, the bride’s sisters-in-law, Deborah and Melinda were not present.

The celebration happened during a family holiday in Melbourne when the Fantastic Four star was traveling with his daughter, Madison, now 22 years old. The Aussie actor had welcomed her during his marriage with his second wife, Brooke Burns.

How and when Did They Meet? Are Julian McMahon And Kelly Paniagua Still Married?

Before their big day, the couple had been together for 11 years. It’s been a toughie for the fans who are ever so curious to know whether the two are still together as of present. Yet there’s little to no information to that end. Add to that, Paniagua, in the last few years, has been an unsung celebrity, especially over social media.

This has led many to question if the son of the former politician is still the husband of the brunette. Likewise, there isn’t that single headline that could have otherwise implied Julian’s third marriage is a wreck too.

Whatever the case may be there are a lot of instances where a celebrity spouse seemingly goes behind closed doors in order to stop receiving all sorts of vague rumors.

Before His Marriage With Kelly Paniagua, Julian Was Married Twice

McMohan was previously in a matrimonial bond with two women first to Dannii Minogue, the sister of Australian pop star, Kylie Minogue, and then to Brooke Burns, an actress from the fame of crime drama series, Baywatch.

Initially, Julian first met Danni Minogue while working on the set of Home & Away in 1991. Subsequently, Julian also starred in one of her music videos, ‘This Is It,’ in which they talked a lot about their relationship.

Julian and Danni exchanged vows in 1994. From the beginning, they spend a great deal of their marriage apart from one another. While Julian was in Los Angeles, Danni used to live in London. Eventually, their relationship crumbled and they divorced after a mere 18 months in 1995.

After his first divorce, he tied the knot with actress, Brooke Burns in 1999. They reportedly first met while shooting for the series, Baywatch.  From this relationship, Julian became a father for the first and only time, welcoming a daughter. They divorced in 2001.

Kelly Paniagua’s Father In Law Was The Prime Minister Of Australia

Paniagua’s father through her existing husband, Sir William McMahon was an Australian politician who served as the 20th Prime Minister of Australia, in office from 1971 to 1972 as the leader of the Liberal¬†Party. In addition, he was a World War II veteran, reaching the rank of major.

Likewise, her mother-in-law, Lady Sonia McMohan was also a big name in Australia. She was a known philanthropist and socialite.

Meanwhile, there is not much information about Kelly’s own parents or siblings available. It is because of her secretive nature that to this date, she has not said anything regarding her family life.

Kelly Career At a Glance

She is not an actor just like her spouse. She is a former model who authored a book titled, Bedtime for Sarah Sullivan. In this award-winning book, Sarah Sullivan, who is the main character of the show explores the wonders of her own imagination. Spoiler alert! In the last segment, she lands on the moon and realizes that everything is possible if you put your mind to it.

In addition, to the book, she also created an app based on the same book for easy access from mobile devices. Apparently, she took inspiration for the book from her husband and his daughter’s relationship.

Kelly Paniagua’s Net Worth And Earnings Analysis

Kelly’s under-the-radar has made it virtually impossible for media outlets to know about her present whereabouts much less her financial details.

She last made her public appearance with her hubby in January 2017 at the G’Day LA event. Her professional sphere is also another enigma, yet to be discovered. Accordingly, her net worth, for now, remains nothing but an abstract essence.

On the other hand, her husband is one of the richest Australian actors. He has a huge net worth of $16 million.
