Who is Dinesh D'Souza married to? Wife & Daughter

D'Souza is currently married to conservative political activist Deborah Fancher. The pair tied the knot in San Diego on March 19, 2016, which was officiated by Ted Cruz's father, Rafael Cruz. "It's the second marriage for both of us, so there won't be a lot of glitter. We'll have people whose names you'll recognize, but it's mostly a family affair and we'd rather not emphasize the guest list," D'Souza told The Hollywood Reporter.

His wife, Deborah, 55, known as Debbie, was born in Caracas, Venezuela, and emigrated to the US at the age of 10. She worked for a Republican group in Texas and eventually met D'Souza, who was working in Washington, D.C. at the time. Both began dating shortly thereafter and have been together ever since. D'Souza is a stepfather to two grown children from her previous relationship.

The 60-year-old has a child of his own, a daughter, Danielle D’Souza Gill, born in 1995, who he shares with his first wife, Dixie Rachel Brubaker. Brubaker and D'souza first met when they worked in Washington, D.C. At the time, he was a policy aide, and Dixie was an intern in the Reagan White House. After dating for some time, the pair walked down the aisle in 1992.  

"He found the ultimate prize in Dixie Brubaker, a beautiful blonde whom he had met while working in the White House," wrote Vanity Fair, quoting D'souza saying, "It was my mission to marry the all-American girl.” The ex-couple lived together in California until 2010 before D'Souza moved to New York to serve as president of The King's College. The 60-year-old alleged that he became aware of his ex-wife's extramarital affairs during this time and left for New York City.

“I discovered, to my horror, irrefutable evidence that my wife was involved with someone else,” he told the Vanity Fair. While D'Souza mentioned that his wife had no interest in repairing their marriage, Dixie contradicted, saying she "signed us up for a marriage-counseling retreat … and attended marriage-counseling sessions.” D'Souza started a secret relationship with a woman named Denise Odie Joseph II, who was married and 22 years his junior, in the summer of 2012.

That same year, he and Dixie ended their 20-year-long marriage. Previously, D'Souza dated conservative television host Laura Ingraham. Both met at Dartmouth University while working at The Dartmouth Review, an independent, student-edited newspaper, in the early 1980s, and had even got engaged at one point but never exchanged wedding vows. D'Souza was also once engaged to conservative media pundit and best-selling author, Ann Coulter.

The film grossed $33.4 million against a production budget of $2.5 million, becoming the highest-grossing conservative documentary of all time.
