Kimberly Fey, collectively known as Kim Fey, is the ex-wife of Donnie Wahlberg.
Wahlberg, as we all know, is a member of the 1980s popular boy band, New Kids on the Block. Besides, he is also producer and actor with roles in notable movies as the franchise of Saw, Zookeeper, Dreamcatcher, and The Sixth Sense.
Fey and Wahlberg separated a decade ago, and she has been keeping a low profile ever since. Here are a few things to know about Kim Fey.
Fey's date of birth is cited to be 1969, same years as her ex-husband, Donnie Wahlberg, which makes her 50 years old as of now.
Kimberly worked as a sound engineer, also known as an audio engineer. She is quoted to have worked with the American hip-hop group Marky Mark and the Funky Bunch.
Interestingly, the band was led by Fey then brother-in-law Mark Wahlberg who went by the alias, Marky Mark. The group produced some hits like Good Vibrations and Wildside before disbanding in 1993.
Currently, Fey works at Re/max All Pro, a real estate agency in Bloomingdale, Illinois, as a realtor. You can follow her on Instagram at @kimfeyrealtor.
Since Fey was a sound engineer, she possibly has a background in fields as fine arts, broadcasting, music, audio, or electrical engineering.
Additionally, she could also just have taken training in audio engineering and sound recording in college. Besides, if Fey had been involved in research and development as an audio engineer, she may have a degree in acoustics, physics, computer science, or another engineering discipline.
The founding member of the band, New Kids on the Block, met his first wife, Kimberly Fey, in the late 1980s. Fey and Wahlberg dated for eight long years.
At this time around, Wahlberg had also successfully made a leap from musical career to the big screen. After being in a relationship since 1991, Kim and Donnie tied the knot on August 20, 1999.
Fey has two children with her ex-husband Donnie Wahlberg. The Blue Bloods actor, along with Kim, became a first-time parent on March 4, 1993, after the birth of their first son, Xavier Alexander Wahlberg. Xavier is 27 years old as of 2020.
Kim gave birth to her second child, Elijah Hendrix Wahlberg, on August 20, 2001. While Wahlberg rarely shares pictures of his kids on social media, he made an exception in honor of Father's Day in 2019.
The caption read, "Happy Fathers Day to the millions of other lucky guys (like myself) who have the honor of calling themselves a dad and sharing in the most important responsibility that a man will ever have in his lifetime — fatherhood."
Both Fey and Wahlberg filed for divorce in two different counties on August 13, 2008. While Donnie was filing for divorce in Ventura County, Fey was doing the same in Los Angeles Superior Court.
Citing irreconcilable differences as the reason for divorce, Fey asked for sole physical and legal custody of their two sons with visitation rights for Wahlberg. Moreover, she also sought support and attorney’s fees from Wahlburgers star.
According to E! News, Fey, and Wahlberg were estranged since January and had been living separately for a long time. Their divorce was finalized in 2010.
While there is no verifiable net worth figure for Kimberly Fay, she is estimated to have a net worth of around $100,000. Her career as a sound engineer and estate agent can be credited to her source of income. Fay has been working as a realtor for more than four years.
It is unclear what amount she received in the divorce settlement. Also, while Fay did seek spousal support at the time of the divorce, the precise financial details remain undisclosed.
