Strange Things About Morgan Stewart And Jordan McGraw's Relationship

After a very high-profile split from Brendan Fitzpatrick, "Rich Kids of Beverly Hills" alum Morgan Stewart made headlines in July 2020 when she celebrated the Fourth of July by sporting a brand new engagement ring after a fast and furious courtship with singer Jordan McGraw

Stewart took to Instagram to share the news of her engagement to the musician with a picture of herself wearing a strapless one-piece and a rock on that finger while grinning ear to ear. The caption simply read "Fireworks." McGraw also appeared to be floating on cloud nine as he announced the happy news via Instagram with a picture of himself and Stewart and a caption that read: "Plenty to smile about..." 

Now as of this writing, Stewart and McGraw are married with a daughter and another kid on the way. Talk about a whirlwind! So how did all of this transpire so quickly? Let's just say there are many interesting tidbits to break down.

Morgan Stewart and Jordan McGraw dated before

As it turns out, this is not the first time Morgan Stewart and Jordan McGraw have been romantically involved. According to People, during an Instagram Live in July 2020, Stewart divulged to her fans that she and McGraw had dated a decade prior and that they gave the relationship the good ol' college try. 

Sadly, however, it didn't work out. "We dated 10 years ago for a year and then he broke up because he was like, 'I'm not down with you, bitch,'" Stewart revealed. "And then I was like 'Fine, whatever, I'm over you, I don't care.' And then I went on obviously to have another relationship." Ahem, the one with her estranged husband and fellow Rich Kids of Beverly Hills alum Brendan Fitzpatrick.

The reality star turned Nightly Pop host went on to say that after her very public split, McGraw pursued her until she finally gave in. "He was persistent and I was like, 'all right.'" All right? Just all right? While she may have been hesitant to rekindle the romance initially, we're gonna take a wild guess that Stewart had much more to say than just "all right" when she caught a glimpse of that engagement ring.

Morgan Stewart was technically still married

According to The Sun,  Morgan Stewart was technically still married to her estranged husband, Brendan Fitzpatrick at the time of her engagement to Jordan McGraw. In July 2020, the outlet reported that both Stewart and Fitzpatrick "begged" a judge to "speed up" the impending divorce so they can both move on with their lives. 

According to Los Angeles Superior Court documents obtained by The Sun, Stewart and Fitzpatrick "filed a declaration for an uncontested dissolution on June 11, 2020," which is basically fancy legalese for "we wanna get this divorce over with ASAP." The documents also revealed that Stewart and Fitzpatrick "entered into a written agreement regarding their property and their marriage," and waived the right to a trial or an appeal. 

The filing alone begs a huge question. Is it possible that Stewart had an inclination that McGraw, had plans to propose? And since Fitzpatrick was also so gung-ho to wrap up the marriage was it possible that he too had his eye on someone special? Well, Fitzpatrick did spark dating rumors with "The Bachelor" alum Amanda Stanton, but that never went anywhere.

Jordan McGraw's famous dad gave his seal of approval

Jordan McGraw's famous dad, Dr. Phil McGraw of the "Dr. Phil" talk show, gave both his son and Morgan Stewart his seal of approval on their engagement and December 2020 wedding. And coming from the no-nonsense, clinical psychologist who is famous for doling out life advice (and tough love) on his popular daytime talk show, that should mean A LOT.

As reported by People, the psychologist turned television personality extended his well-wishes to the couple in a comment on Stewart's Instagram post in which she announced their engagement. "Robin and I are so thrilled for you and Jordan. So proud to add you to the family! Love you both!!!" the proud father gushed. Not to be outdone, Jordan's mother also communicated her well-wishes as well with a string of X's and O's. 

So it looks like Stewart started off on a good foot with her new in-laws. And as one can imagine, that love grew when the two announced some special news in August 2020, just four months before their winter wedding.

Morgan Stewart and Jordan McGraw's romance is full of surprises

Morgan Stewart still reigns supreme as the queen of surprises. On the heels of her July 4, 2020, engagement that shook the E! universe, Stewart took to Instagram two months later to deliver some even more shocking news — a pregnancy! Stewart shared a fun video of her and then-fiance Jordan McGraw hosting a gender reveal party. Stewart cheekily captioned the post, "She may not be great at math but at least we know she'll be well dressed." McGraw shared the same video quipping, "Been working on my dad jokes for years." The couple's daughter, Row, was born in February.

Of course, the pregnancy news isn't strange — however, it is another example of how these two keep fans on their toes. And speaking of keeping their supporters guessing, in September, Stewart and McGraw confirmed baby number two was on the way! Stewart revealed during an episode of E!'s Daily Pop that she found out "very far" into the pregnancy. She added, "It was a very big surprise."

Well, it's safe to say this couple is full of surprises, and that's what works for them. Congrats to the proud parents!
