Bridget Phetasy gave birth to her first baby at the age of 43, along with her husband.

She announced the news for the first on an Instagram post in January 2022.

Phetasy posted a screenshot of a blog post she made with a prominent picture of the pregnancy test kit where the result was shown positive.

Just above the pregnancy kit photo, the personal blog post had a quote from an American novelist Jack Kerouac:

“I have nothing to offer anybody, except my own confusion.”

Perhaps, the thought of being a mother for the first time was a confusing time for the 43-year-old. The title of the blog post did read: “Geriatric Mommy.”

Later in April, the host reached the nine months of pregnancy and gave birth to her first baby.

One month later, she posted a snap of her baby with her pet dog and tweeted that it had been blissful to be offline and in the newborn bubble; what a magical, fleeting time.

Bridget Phetasy married Jeren Montgomery at the age of 41, and her husband is now also the co-host of her podcast Factory Setting.

Bridget Phetasy married Jeren Montgomery, a licensed marriage & family therapist, and co-host of the podcast Factory Setting. The couple tied the knot in November 2020 when they both were in their 40s.

The couple spent their safari honeymoon on the Savanna in South Africa, at the world-famous Kruger National Park. It was the dream of hers and was just beyond what she could have imagined anything.

But their relationship went through a lot of difficult times. They even broke up once.

Bridget and her husband first met while she was recovering

Bridget Phetasy and Jeren Montgomery met first when she was recovering from addiction.

When the host encountered Jeren for the first time, she noticed he was different from other boys she’d known—kind, nice, and stable.

The host was healing at the time and started to date Jeren.

However, the couple broke up after dating shortly because she wanted to focus on herself first.

In addition, she thought that she was taking something away from him but didn’t know exactly. They adore each other, but she felt like the relationship was just gonna go off the rails.

She felt they had only a chance if they took a break. The husband was still surprised by her uncanny ability to dissociate and detach easily from him.

She took her time and moved through the difficult situation.

About 15 months later, they reconnected and never left each other’s side again. The pair decided to marry, and it turned out to be the right decision.

Bridget went to rehab at the age of 19

Phetasy went to a rehab center to recover from the use of substances at the age of just 19.

She initially started to drink at 12 and was already abusing alcohol by age 15. Nobody paid attention to her at the time. Her parents also divorced around that time.

The host was completely obsessed with the use of substances and drinks for over 15 years.

During that period, she lived her life to the fullest enjoyment. In a podcast with PowerfulJRE, she said:

“I probably should have died I mean it’s a miracle I didn’t die,”

She recalled how her wake-up call came after an episode at Coachella. She had been partying for days with alcohol and illicit substances to the point where she blacked out.

When she came back to her senses, she realized that she was too old to be living the way that she was and took the necessary steps to get back to sobriety.
