Since starting in 2009, Shark Tank has built a loyal audience and continues to grow despite being in season 14. Fans are always curious about how the Sharks made their money and their personal lives, including spouses. As for Daymond John, he has been married twice. His second and current wife is Heather Taras. She keeps a relatively low profile, so fans want to know more about her.
Heather’s early life is a mystery to the public. Her exact date of birth is unknown but it’s believed she is 43 years old. Before meeting Daymond John, Taras worked as a registered nurse.
Growing up she was passionate about modeling and fashion but never got the opportunity to pursue it. Now she enjoys having photoshoots with family to scratch this itch.
Relationship with Daymond
Heather Taras reportedly met Daymond back in 2012. They were friends for some time before getting into a romantic relationship. Eventually, Taras got pregnant and gave birth to baby Minka Jagger, a girl.
Six months later, ABC’s Shark Tank played a part in their relationship, as it was on the show’s set that Daymond proposed to Heather in 2016. It wasn’t televised, but there was a live audience in front of them.
The couple got married in 2018 and their wedding ceremony was held in Greece. Since then, the two have been happily living together and raising their daughter.
Daymond’s First Marriage
Daymond got married to Margot John before becoming the reality TV star he is today. The pair had two daughters: Yasmeen and Destiny.
But as Daymond’s fame and fortune grew, he struggled to maintain a healthy work-life balance. In the past, he admitted to prioritizing work over family and paid the penalty. Margot became unhappy with their relationship and filed for divorce.
John was initially barred from seeing his children. However, he eventually reached an agreement with his wife and now sees his two daughters as much as he wants.
After marrying Daymond, Heather Taras stopped working as a nurse to focus on raising their child. Apart from being a mom of one, she started dabbling in other endeavors.
She started working at her husband’s apparel company, FUBU, but her official position is undisclosed. Nevertheless, this isn’t the only venture she is pursuing.
Heather is slowly building a social media follow and has done several brand deals already. She is mostly active on Instagram under the username “heather_john” and now has over 18,800 followers.
Because she is a secretive person, it is not known if Heather was in a serious relationship before meeting Daymond John. But that’s not important because she is living happily with her current partner. They live in a lavish home in New York City.
