Hulk Hogan has some exciting news to share with his fans and followers. The 69-year-old WWE legend – who was born Terry Gene Bollea – recently proposed to his girlfriend, Sky Daily, and SHE SAID YES! The couple have been together for more than a year and will now begin the wedding planning process.
According to TMZ Sports, Hogan proposed last week at a restaurant in Tampa, Florida, but he wasn’t 100% confident that she would say yes. In fact, he admitted that the nerves were high leading up to him popping the question – something you wouldn’t expect out of Hogan – but he’s glad he did it when he did.
While not much is known about his now-fiance, several reports indicate that she’s an accountant and yoga instructor who has three children of her own (Hogan has two). They started dating in early 2022 – shortly after Hogan divorced his second wife – and have grown very close over the past 12+ months.
Hulk Hogan shared the engagement news while giving a speech at a recent wedding between actor Corin Nemec and Sabrina Nova (Sky Daily’s best friend). He explained how it was Nemec and Nova who helped bring the two together over a year ago – which was the spark that started their relationship.
Video of the speech was shared on Instagram, but has since been deleted. During the speech, Hogan revealed that he met Sky at a party after treating everyone to a round of drinks. Nemec and Nova urged the two to meet up again and now, over a year later, he joked that she was ‘crazy enough to say yes
And while they originally met over some drinks, Hulk Hogan confirmed that he recently quit drinking out of respect for himself and his fiance. “Everything bad that’s ever happened to me had to do with alcohol,” he said during an appearance on the This Past Weekend podcast with comedian Theo Von on Tuesday.
Now living a much healthier lifestyle, Hulk Hogan is excited for what the future holds with his fiance and soon-to-be-wife, Sky Daily. He admits to already falling in love with her children – who she shares with her ex-husband – and it appears they have a good thing going, so let’s hope it stays that way in the long run!
Hulk Hogan Has Been Married Twice Before
Hulk Hogan is no stranger to walking down the aisle. The WWE Hall of Famer has been married twice before and is now in the midst of his third engagement – he was previously married to Linda Claridge for 26 years (between 1983 and 2009) and Jennifer McDaniel for 11 years (between 2010 and 2021).
His first marriage fell apart after rumors of infidelity started floating around in the media. Christiane Plante came forward and claimed to have an affair with Hogan while he was filming his Hogan Knows Best reality show. While he denied those allegations, it was enough for Claridge to file for divorce.
It didn’t take long for Hogan to find another lover. He started dating McDaniel in 2007 and they tied the knot in Deember 2010. The couple remained together for 11 years before he filed for divorce in October 2021. The divorce was finalized later that year and he started dating Sky Daily sometime in early 2023.
Now, Hogan is preparing for a third marriage and is excited to become a step-father to her three children. Hogan has two children of his own – a daughter named Brooke Hogan (b. May 5, 1988) and son named Nick Hogan (b. July 27, 1990) – who he shares with his first wife. We wish Sky and Hulk all the best!
