Who are Trey McBride’s parents?

Trey McBride is the son of Kate McBride and her long-time partner Jen. The couple have four other children, including former Rams defensive linesman Toby McBride. Trey also has a twin brother, Dylan, who wrestled at college.

Kate heads up the family business, which breeds Golden retrievers, and the family grew up alongside plenty of pets. Jen, meanwhile, works for the Morgan County Sheriff’s office.

The couple have been together for 25 years. They started out as friends but that soon turned to romance and the women have been partners ever since. Kate and Jen’s children were fathered by four different sperm donors, although Trey and Dylan share the same unknown father, being twins. “We’ve all pretty much decided not to go out and find our dads,” Toby told the Denver Post.

Trey McBride and his siblings have been vocal in praising their parents. “They’ve done a great job of pushing me to be the best version of myself and just constantly giving support and love,” Trey told Today.

“They’ve been great role models for me and my brothers, so it’s cool to see how they raised us and it’s just very special for us.”

When asked by Kate whether he’d want to find out the identity of his father, Toby said: “I was raised by my parents. They’re my parents. Finding out who my dad is isn’t going to do anything different.”
