Max Kellerman’s wife is Erin Manning, now Erin Manning Kellerman.

The couple met while in college, and eventually started dating after being introduced at a college party. Their wedding details are a little grey, but they tied the know and got married in 1994.

In 2019, they had their 25th wedding anniversary.

The couple have three daughters together – Esther, Sam and Mira.

The five of them live together in their home in East Hampton, New York City, which is where ESPN’s First Take offices are located.

Max’s daughter, Sam is actually named after his brother, also Sam Kellerman, who was tragically killed in 2004.

Sam Kellerman was 29 years old when he died, and Max has spoken openly about how long it took him to recover from the grief following his death.

He said of his brother, Sam: “[Sam] was a creative genius… He was the best writer for his age I’ve ever read.

“Sam was a sure thing. It was just a matter of time before he made it big.”
