Honestly, after Brian McKnight put the phenomenon of female ejaculation to a tune, he kind of fell out of my general consciousness. But life goes on. And in the meantime, the 48-year-old crooner has found love.
McKnight married Leilani Malia Mendoza on Sunday, New Year’s Eve, and announced their nuptials via a string of social media posts. Last December, McKnight told the Montgomery Advertiser that while the couple had been dating for three years at the time, they didn’t have any plans to get married, with McKnight saying that they were “more married than any married couple I know.”
Five months later, they were announcing their engagement.
This is the second marriage for McKnight, who married his college sweetheart Julie McKnight in 1990. The couple divorced in 2003, after 13 years of marriage and two children, Brian Jr and Niko. In speaking about his previous marriage, on an episode of “Oprah: Where Are They Now?”, McKnight said, “When you decide to make a commitment to someone,” he said, “make sure that that person has everything you want. Do not compromise on one thing because it’s those things that are going to get you through the tough times.”
Hopefully, he’s found that and more with Leilani.
