Megyn Kelly’s husband Douglas Brunt recalls their first date and kiss being awkward with all the security guards around.

On Tuesday, Humans of New York posted on their Facebook, that the Fox News anchor’s husband said the two had just started dating, at the same time Kelly had “acquired” a stalker.

“We started dating shortly after she acquired a stalker—bad start, I know,” he said. “So she had security with her 24/7. Our first date went great.”

“It was the kind of night that was clearly going to end with a kiss,” he added. “But I had to kiss her in front of the security guards. It was awkward.”

“It was like our parents were watching,” he went on. “The next morning she knocked on my hotel room door. She was alone. She walked into the room, and said: ‘I can do better.'”

Kelly told The New York Times that on their first date,she wasn’t even in the restaurant at first. She had asked her friends to check him out first and give the okay, which they did. That’s when she went to see for herself and said “he came across as sincere.”

“While we were talking, he leaned forward, really listening to what I was saying,” she added. “He’s also clever and has a great sense of humor.”
