Dyan Struble was the first wife of American former baseball player John Smoltz who is on his second marriage in which he seems happy. He was married to his first with Dyan Struble for quite some time but then the duo got divorced and he’s now on his Second marriage.
It seems Dyan Struble is a very private person seeing as there is no information about herself on the internet. Nothing about her age, career, early life or anything. There’s really no authentic information. The same can be said about her former husband John, he has just little information about his private life available to the public.
Dyan Struble and John Smoltz
As mentioned earlier Dyan is the first wife off John Smoltz who is on his second marriage. She got married to her first husband John in December, 1990. Dyan Struble and John, were blessed with four kids together named; John Andrew Jr. who was born in 1991 and is 31 years old; Rachel Elizabeth, born in
1993 and is 29-year-old, Carly Maria, born in 1997 and at the age of 25 and Kelly Christin, a 23-year-old born in 1999.
In 2007, the couple started a foundation called John and Dyan Smoltz Foundation, which was founded to support Christian organizations. John, said his goodbyes to Dyan Struble together with their four kids after of 16 years of marriage in 2007 though it went against his beliefs as a staunch Christian. As for the reason for their divorce, it is unknown, but the Warren, United States native wrote about it divorce in his book saying, “I found myself in a circumstance I deeply regretted, and one that I honestly never thought I would contribute to the staggering statistics of divorce in professional sports”.
A few years after the divorce, Dyan Struble got hitched to Russ Caso in March, 2013. As at 2014, Josh Andrew was a student of Michigan State University, Rachel a student at Liberty University and both Carly and Kelly were studying at King’s Ridge Christian. Their divorce was confirmed by John Smoltz’s agent, Loonie Cooper.
He said in the message, and I quote, “John and Dyan Smoltz have mutually decided to end their marriage.” “At this time, their priority is with their family, specifically the well being of their four children. We ask that you please respect their privacy during this difficult time. The family will not be commenting on this personal matter.”
After all of that, John and his second wife Kathryn Darden met at Taco Mac on a blind date and they tied the knot on the 16th of May, 2009. Kathryn Smoltz whose maiden name was Kathryn Therese Darden is a 45-year-old born on August 28, 1969 to parents Frank and Ellen Darden of New Smyrna Beach. Apparently, Kathryn too was not new to the whole marriage thing when she married John. Kathryn was married to Todd Dwight Waters. They got married on July 3, 1993 in Alachua, Florida. Kathryn and Todd had two daughters Ashley and Sara Kathryn.
