“To shed some light on why I was MIA…” Pennington continued, sharing that he attended the red carpet event for “Barbie” on Sunday, July 9, before going to Colorado the next day for a shoot. He added:

“Tuesday morning, I woke up at 4 a.m. and could barely breathe.”

The carpenter shared that he couldn’t breathe because of an abscess blocking his airway. What he thought was a sore throat during the last month was an abscess that grew with time. He was rushed to the ICU, underwent surgery on July 12, and stayed under observation until the following day.

When Did Ty Pennington Tie the Knot?

Besides finding success as a host and designer, Pennington finally tied the knot years after meeting the person he now loves the most. He met his now-wife, Kellee Merrell, in 2010, but they didn’t share a romantic relationship back then.

It wasn’t until 2020 that the couple talked to each other again and became friends. Things began escalating when they decided to quarantine together during the COVID-19 pandemic, unaware that they would soon tie the knot.

Pennington proposed to Merrell, 35, in July 2021, and the couple planned to get married in Italy. However, the travel restrictions during the pandemic made them tie the knot in an intimate ceremony in November 2021 in the backyard of their dream home, which was still under construction then.

Merell, a Canada-based social media manager, made Pennington think about marriage when she entered his life. He said in an interview with People, “I never thought I would get married. It wasn’t a priority. But this incredible person came into my life, and I just knew I couldn’t let her go.”

When asked about his life after marriage, the host said it was “amazing.” Although he had never exclusively planned to get married, tying the knot made him believe he had made a good decision. He loves Merell dearly and often posts photos of her on Instagram.
