Who is John Meadows’ wife?
John was married to Mary until his death. It is unclear how or when the two met. However, time and again, the bodybuilder made sure his wife was credited for her constant support.
In an interview, John admitted he was only able to reach his highest potential because of Mary’s support. He said: I couldn’t have done it without her. When I was sick and got out of the hospital and I was too weak to look after myself, she did everything for me, including sanitary things I can’t talk about.”
He continued: “If I say I want to do something, we’ll talk about it, make sure it’s workable, and then she gets behind me and supports the idea and me all the way. And when I’m hurting the last three or four weeks of my diet, she sees the look on my face and says, ‘Just hang in there, it’s going to be worth it,’ and I need to hear that at that stage.”
Unlike John, Mary has often stayed away from social media. However, photos of family trips from her Facebook hint she spent a lot of time with her bodybuilder husband.
Who are Mountain Dog’s children?
Mary and John welcomed their twins in 2006. They named their sons Jonathan and Alexander.
John often shared pictures with his sons. In December 2020, the fitness coach shared a picture with the twins, wishing them a happy 12th birthday. At the same time, judging by their respective social media profiles, it looks like they are following in John’s footsteps.
Alexander is a video creator who often posts his content on Instagram. Meanwhile, Jonathan shows off his love for superheroes on his social media. He also has 2,500 followers on TikTok.
