She was a big fan of numerous wrestlers and Orton in particular, who entered the company at a young age.
She had pictures of him and numerous other wrestlers in her house, and apparently even thought of him in terms of a relationship. This was not the case for many years, however, as she would later have a family of her own, including three children. However, that relationship did not last and led to a divorce. According to reports, she first met Orton during a WWE event in New York which she attended as it was close to where she lived. She was the one who Orton approached, and this later led to them starting to date in 2012.

Orton was previously married to Samantha Speno, and has a daughter from that marriage; however, the two separated in 2012 and divorced the following year. It was during this period that he started dating Kessler, who was also a divorcee. The two stayed in a relationship for around three years before he proposed to her while on a vacation together in Bora Bora. The two married later in the year at Las Vegas, Nevada with only their children in attendance.
Orton is known to be close to Kim’s children too, and they often share pictures as well as videos together in social media. In 2016, she became pregnant and documented her pregnancy journey on social media; their daughter was born later in the year. They also adopted a dog they found while on a hiking trip in Bora Bora. The two have never made efforts to hide their relationship on social media, and have appeared at events together. She has been featured alongside him in several online, print, and television media outlets.
Kim Marie has been in her share of controversies since beginning her relationship with Orton, partly because their relationship began during the breakdown of his previous marriage. She has been accused of being a gold digger based on her apparent love of professional wrestling and Orton’s wealth which has been accrued over his many years in the industry. He is also known to be the recipient of numerous fan mails and tweets, which she actually takes her time to delete.
One of the biggest controversies the couple have been involved in was with a fan named Kayla Gomez, who stalked and harassed the couple for some time. The two retaliated by making it public on social media that Kayla would be called Ms. Piggy. Gomez had been making efforts to take pictures of Orton and post them online, also challenging Kim as she was also interested in Orton. He later made a public statement, saying that Kayla has been blocked for harassing and stalking his wife. He also asked her to get a life and troll someone else. The issue eventually faded into the background, and the two continued with their normal lives.
