Amanda Homes was born on Sep 2, 1984, in Canada. The firstborn child of Mike Holmes and Alexandria Lorex, Amanda spent her early life in Canada. There exists very little information on Amanda’s early life and education. The philanthropist has a younger sister, Sherry Holmes and a younger brother, Michale Holmes Jr.
If not for her few appearances on the reality TV show alongside her father, we wouldn’t have known a thing about Amanda’s professional life. She handled the role of Office Manager and made 17 appearances alongside her father. She worked on the series for 2 years (2005-2007) before leaving in search of a new adventure. Following her departure from the small screen, Amanda has lived a private life.
As of the current date, Amanda is spending her professional life lowkey working in the family business but chooses not to appear in the TV show.
Second time’s the charm: Amanda is married to the second husband
Unknown to many fans, Amanda has tied the knot twice. Her first marriage was to a co-worker, Adam Belange who worked at Holmes on Homes. Amanda met Adam she was in New Orleans and soon tied the knot. Unfortunately, the pair separated due to reason undisclosed to the media.
Amanda got married a second time to a mystery man. The identity of her husband is not yet disclosed to the media.
A mother of two beautiful children
Amanda is the kind of person who likes to keep all to herself be it her professional life or personal matters. Nevertheless, we cannot hide the fact she is a mother of two beautiful children a boy and a girl. She had her first boy child Wyatt on Oct 1, 2010, now 13 years of age. A few years later she got blessed with another child, a baby girl Emily.
For now, we can not confirm whether she had her children from her first marriage with Adam Belange or later from her second husband. One thing we can tell is Amand is confined with her beautiful family and a loving dad. Her father Mike boasts about both grandkids also the third one, Cali from his younger daughter Sherry Holmes.
Amanda is a life-long victim of Crohn’s disease. The disease has no cure and patients are left with an inflamed digestive tract. Amanda has always stood for victims of the disease and has worked for charities that help in the cause. She alongside her father Mike Holmes raised a total of USD 1.6 million for M&M Meat Shops Charity BBQ. The money was then donated to Crohn’s and Colitis Foundation of Canada.
In rare interviews that the reality star has given, Amanda has always thanked her family. She has also stated that she will be forever grateful for the CCFC Foundation who helped her in times of need.
