The Truth About Ainsley Earhardt's Ex-Husband, Will Proctor

Fox News viewers are likely familiar with "Fox & Friends" co-host Ainsley Earhardt, who has been with the network since 2007, per Politifact. While other anchors are open about their family lives, Earhardt typically keeps her private life private, especially following her 2018 divorce. Shortly after the TV personality announced that she and then-husband Will Proctor were separating, a source told People that Earhardt had filed for divorce because of Proctor's alleged infidelity. "It was all the more devastating for Ainsley that he cheated with someone who she considered one of her closest friends," a separate source told the Daily Mail. "Any marriage break-up is difficult but this made it extra heart-wrenching for her."

For his part, Proctor denied the allegations to Page Six, insisting that, "There is not one ounce of truth to the allegations that I had an affair." He added, "I am disappointed that this private matter has become public. I remain focused on and committed to being the best dad, and maintaining a friendship with my wife even though she has decided to move on. I am devastated about this situation and did not envision this for the future of our family." Per People, the one-time couple share daughter Hayden, and remained committed to co-parenting throughout the separation and subsequent divorce. But while Proctor made headlines amid the split, what else is there to know about Earhardt's ex-husband?

Will Proctor has forged an impressive career in the business world

Will Proctor's marriage (and subsequent divorce) from Ainsley Earhardt may have thrust him into the limelight, but he had quite the illustrious career well before marrying into the Fox News world. Following a successful college football career at Clemson — plus a short-lived stint in the Canadian Football League — he went on to work in finance, per the Washington Independent. While at college, Sports-Reference reported that Proctor got the most playing time during his 2006 season, at which point he had a 60.2 completion percentage and threw for 16 touchdowns. 

After he hung up his cleats for good, Proctor was hired as a new vice president and "wealth advisor" for Neuberger Berman Wealth Management, via On Wall Street. According to the outlet, he was the first to hold the position, since it was created for him. As of this writing, Proctor remains with Neuberger Berman, where he works as the Head of Sponsor Coverage & Managing Director. Personal life aside, Proctor has forged a successful career in the business world. The athlete-turned-businessman reportedly has a net worth of $2 million, per Very Celeb —so all in all, Proctor seems to be doing alright for himself.
