Does Gayle King have children?

GAYLE King was previously married for more than a decade – and has two adult children.

The longtime journalist and television personality is known for her close friendship with Oprah Winfrey.

Does Gayle King have children?

King and former husband Bill Bumpus share two children – daughter Kirby and son Bill Jr.

She was married to Bumpus from 1982 to 1993.

Kirby Bumpus – who is Oprah's goddaughter – married Virgil Miller in 2020 following a delay due to the ongoing coronavirus pandemic, according to Town & Country.

"It wasn't the wedding we planned, but it was absolutely perfect," King told O Magazine.

"Kirby really is so happy, and nothing beats when your children are happy."

The bride's brother officiated at the ceremony, which was held at Oprah's home in California.

"Nobody knows Kirby the way her brother does, so for him to do the ceremony felt meant to be," Gayle told O Magazine.

She said the family did "socially distant hors d'oeuvres and cake, and socially distant dancing."

How did Gayle King's marriage end?

King says her marriage ended after she caught her husband in bed with another woman.

After she joked in 2016 about what happened decades before, Bumpus issued a public apology.

"I have been haunted with this life altering choice," he told ET at the time in a statement.

"Though I have dealt with this privately, I publicly apologize for the major transgression that dramatically changed all of our lives.

"I have nothing but the utmost respect for Gayle and how she handled herself with grace. Despite the situation, she kept our children, as well as my relationship and involvement with them, as a clear priority."

He would add: "I continue to be a work in progress and have spent the last 26 years striving to be a better man and father. I applaud Gayle's continued phenomenal success and friendship!"

King had joked about the incident while filling out a questionnaire, according to KTVB.

She had been asked what living person she detested the most.

"I'm not a huge fan of the woman who I caught naked with my now ex-husband on June 24, 1990, at 9:16 p.m., but I don't remember the details," she answered.
