Father Jonathan Morris' wife is Kaitlyn Folmer. Morris married his wife on October 17, 2020, as a Fox News contributor. Folmer, his wife, is an accomplished investigative producer at ABC News.

Morris and Kaitlyn originally met in 2013 in Italy, and they married last year after nearly seven years of dating. Both are active in the media and news channels, which may have brought the two lovebirds closer together.

On the internet, just a few of their wedding images were available. During the outbreak, they married in New York at St. Patrick's Cathedral, following safety guidelines and restricting their guest list to 200.

The couple is very happy to become parents and is loving parenthood. Both Jonathan and Kaitlyn are giving most of their time focusing on their baby. 

Why Did Jonathan Morris Leave Priesthood?

Morris said in May 2019, while on vacation, that he has decided to seek clemency after years of grappling with his vocation and the burdens that the Catholic priesthood entails, specifically the inability to marry and establish a family.

He wanted to focus more time on his family so he needed to take some time off for himself. Jonathan then decided to ask Pope Francis, the Holy Father, to release him from his priestly responsibilities and obligations.

While some fans were saddened about Morris leaving, some were really happy for him. He needed some time off his work to focus on himself and his wife and kid.
