Here's Why Gary Vaynerchuk and Ex Wife Lizzie Keep Their Kids Away from the Limelight
Five-time New York Times bestseller Gary Vaynerchuk is a family man with two children: daughter Misha Vaynerchuk and son Xander Vaynerchuk. He had his kids with his wife, Lizzie Vaynerchuk.
But unlike many celebrities who take their wives and kids to different public events, Gary opts to keep his personal life out of the limelight.
Gary Vaynerchuk Wants His Kids to Make Their Decisions
The Belarusian-American entrepreneur has always remained private about his little kids. He has barely shared any pictures of them.
Even his wife, Lizzie, followed suit. Later, Gary revealed the reason he was rarely seen with his kids in public places.
In 2015, the 46-year-old author published a blog titled 'BEFORE YOU QUESTION MY WORK/LIFE BALANCE, READ THIS' on his website.
Gary stated that he and his spouse had decided not to disclose much about their kids in public through the blog. He added he would like to keep his children behind the curtains until they decide to come out in public by themselves.
"I would prefer to keep that part of my life private until they can decide," he wrote. "But it was my personal choice to make sure this part of my career, the public image, didn’t bring them into the limelight without it being their choice first."
Going by his statements, it seems that he is a doting and thoughtful father who does not like to make decisions about his children’s lives by himself only.

Keeping his kids away from the limelight might be one thing. On the other hand, Gary often talked about his wife and her support as a proud husband.
On September 24, 2014, he dedicated a whole blog on Medium for Lizzie and titled it 'The Significance of Your Significant Other.'
In the blog, he stated he was amazed by the influence his wife had on his career.
He also said that his spouse had always supported him, whatever the situation was, due to which he could perform his duties at his workplace.
While concluding his blog, Vaynerchuk mentioned how important it was to have such a supportive significant other — which he got in his wife — to attain success.
Gary and Lizzie Vaynerchuk Married in 2004
The GaryVee Audio Experience host exchanged wedding vows with his wife Lizzie on November 13, 2004.
Since then, the power couple relished their marriage with their children.
Their first child, daughter Misha, was born on May 31, 2009. Three years later, on August 6, 2012, the family of three expanded as the duo welcomed their second child, Xander.
They lived together in their New York home. But now, rumors are rife that Gary and his spouse have already divorced. The divorce rumors rose after the internet personality introduced his new girlfriend on Instagram.
Did Gary Vaynerchuk and Lizzie Vaynerchuk Divorce?
On February 21, 2022, Gary posted a shocking picture on Instagram. He was seen standing close to the pharmacist and entrepreneur, Mona Vand.
Clad in black T-shirt and jeans, he rested his hand on her waist as they both displayed smiles for the picture. But more than the picture itself, what surprised everyone was the caption that accompanied the photo.
"You make me so deeply happy," he had written tagging along a red heart emoji and his supposed girlfriend's name.

Interestingly, Vand also posted a cozy picture with her supposed partner the same day. She could be seen resting her head on his shoulder in an eatery.
In the caption, she reflected her affection towards him and wrote, "Life with you is beautiful."
The love-filled pictures obviously shocked his fans and followers, who thought he was still married to Lizzie.
"is she Gary's wife? I thought it was someone else," wrote one confused fan. To which, another follower replied, "no, he got divorced."
While there is speculation that Gary got a divorce from his spouse, the photos provide more substance to the gossip. However, Gary himself has not a let a word out about his divorce.
But it can be possible, given his private nature, that he doesn't want the divorce to be public knowledge.
