When it comes to HGTV’s beloved real estate developer, Mika Kleinschmidt, there’s more to her story than meets the eye. One fascinating aspect of her life is her daughter, Jade Kleinschmidt. Contrary to popular belief, Jade is not adopted. She’s Mika’s biological child from a previous relationship.
Jade Kleinschmidt entered the world in February 2009, but the identity of her biological father remains undisclosed. However, what’s heartwarming is her strong bond with her ‘bonus dad,’ Brian Kleinschmidt, who is Mika’s husband.
Mika and Brian’s love story is nothing short of inspiring. They initially met in high school but went their separate ways, each having different partners. Fate, however, brought them back together almost a decade later.

At the time of their reunion, Mika was already a mother to Jade, while Brian had parted ways with his ex-wife, Ericka Dunlap, in 2011. Despite not sharing a biological bond, Brian wholeheartedly embraced his role as a ‘bonus dad’ to Jade.
Their three-person family is a beautiful example of a modern blended family. Brian isn’t just a ‘bonus dad’; he’s a dedicated and loving one. He frequently admires Jade, marking significant milestones in her life.
Mika and Brian’s union in marriage in 2015 further strengthened their family bond. Mika often shares heartwarming photos of Jade with her paternal grandparents, emphasizing how fortunate Jade is to have such a large, loving, blended family.
On Father’s Day, Mika took a moment to express her heartfelt appreciation for Brian. She shared a lovely snapshot of the Kleinschmidt family, accompanied by a touching caption: “Jade and I can never find enough words to express our gratitude for everything Brian has brought into our lives. Wishing you a joyful Father’s Day.“

Jade’s Future Plans In Designing

Aside from her creative talents, Jade is also an athlete, actively participating in rowing competitions. Her dedication to rowing has instilled discipline and a sense of teamwork, qualities that will serve her well in any future endeavor.
