The Truth About David Koechner's Ex-Wife

"Anchorman" star David Koechner made headlines earlier this year after he reportedly filed for divorce from his wife of over 20 years, Leigh Koechner, in January, per TMZ. According to court documents, their date of separation was listed as Feb. 1, 2019, and he asked for joint physical and legal custody of the ex's three minor children — 13-year-old twins Sargent and Audrey, and 8-year-old daughter Eve. David and Leigh are also parents to their eldest son, Charlie, and daughter Margot, 19.

Although the actor has yet to speak out about his breakup, his ex has had no problem talking about her experience and even taught a six-week webinar on divorce around the same time their split went public.

"As most of you know, I only teach from my experiences and learnings. I am in divorce proceedings right now and learning so d**n much," Leigh wrote in a now-deleted Instagram post, per Daily Mail. "Boy did it hurt (for years), but now I see the beauty it has and is bringing. Life isn't happening to us, it is happening for us," she added.

In addition to Leigh's work as a podcaster, she has built quite a name for herself. Keep scrolling to learn more about David Koechner's ex.
