However, the couple remained very secretive about their married life throughout their relationship. In fact, they have not announced if they have divorced or are still together.

But considering the fact Jackson has a new man in life, it is quite difficult to decode her present relationship with Doug.

Jackson and her then future-husband Hitchner first met when they both were at John Hopkins University. The couple got engaged in 2010 and married the following year.

Hallie’s ex-spouse Hitchner was a baseball player at the time who played as a catcher for Johns Hopkins University team. He later worked as a coach of the team. He also enjoys hunting.
