Kelley Phleger is known for being the wife of Miami Vice star, Don Johnson.
Phleger was born Mary Kelley Phleger on June 22, 1969, to parents, Jean and Atherton Macondray Phleger. Her dad was a lawyer and board member of Wells Fargo.
She graduated with a degree in Fine Arts from the University of California, Berkeley after passing out of Urban High School.
Married with Don Johnson
Kelley Phleger married her husband Don Johnson on April 29, 1999, at the Pacific Heights mansion of Gordon and Ann Getty. They met for the first time in 1996.
They were introduced by producer Jo Schuman Silver at a birthday party. She was dating her then-boyfriend, Governor Gavin Newsom.
Despite their 19 years age gap, Kelley and Don walked down the aisle in 1999. Mayor Willie Brown officiated the ceremony and Hart to Hart actor Robert Wagner served as the best man.
Johnson and Phleger have been married for more than two decades and within those years, the duo has welcomed three children.
Mother of Three
The 52-year-old Kelley Phleger has three kids with her husband, Don Johnson.
Their first child, Atherton Grace Johnson was born eight months after their marriage on December 28, 1999. She is now a model signed to IMG Models.
They welcomed their second child, Jasper Breckenridge Johnson on June 6, 2002. He is now a collegiate basketball player. In an interview, Jasper revealed that he wants to have a career in business rather than being an actor like his father.
Kelley and Don gave birth to their youngest son, Deacon Johnson in 2006.
Step-Mother of Two
Kelley Phleger is also a step-mother of two children from her husband, Don Johnson’s previous relationships.
Don welcomed his first child, Jesse Johnson on December 7, 1982, with his former girlfriend model, Patti D’Arbanville. They gave birth to Jesse during their relationship of four years. Don’s eldest son is now an actor.
Phleger is also the stepmother to Dakota Johnson. Dakota was born on October 4, 1989, to Don and his former partner, Melanie Griffith. They had started living together when Melanie was 15, got married and divorced at 19, tied the knot and welcomed Dakota at 32, and separated again at 39.
Both Jesse and Dakota have a good relationship with their step-mom, Kelley.
