Take a peek into the life of Dr. Phil, while we’ve gathered everything there is to know about him.
Early life and family
Jay Phillip McGraw was born on September 12 in 1979 and will turn 41 later this year (2020). Jay’s hometown is in Wichita County, Texas, USA, and he is the older of two boys born to Phillip and his wife Robin. Jay’s younger brother Jordan pursued a career in music while Jay followed in his father’s footsteps. Jay had spent most of his life in Texas, including college.
With his father’s success, he could be expected to have had a lavish and wealthy upbringing, but a largely peaceful childhood.
Jay graduated from Greenhill High School in Addison, Texas, and completed a Bachelor of Science degree in Psychology from the University of Texas, Austin. Jay continued his studies at Southern Methodist University in Plano, Texas, where he earned a doctorate in law.
Jay’s career boomed when he published his first books; these were all titles aimed at improving the lives of children and teenagers. He established himself as an author with such titles as “The Ultimate Weight Solution For Teens: The Seven Keys To Weight Freedom”, “Life Strategies for Teens”, and “Closing The Gap: A Strategy For Bringing Parents and Teens Together”.
Jay co-founded the production house Stage 29 Productions with the help of his father, Dr Phil, and has also helped a few productions of the Dr Phil Show.
His production career has seen many highs and has won him several awards; these productions include ‘Decision House’ in 2007, ‘The Doctors’ in 2008 and in 2016 he was the producer from “Taurus”.
Jay was also the host of the hit reality TV series “Renovate My Family”, dedicated to renovating the homes and lives of ordinary American citizens in need of assistance. It was on the set of the show that Jay met his future wife Erica, who is one of triplets.
Apart from that, Jay is also a popular personality and motivational speaker, who had appeared on shows such as “The Early Show”, “Good Morning America”, “Entertainment Tonight” and “Today and Extra”.
Jay was also a columnist, with articles for “Cosmo Girl” and “Seventeen” magazine. In recent times, Jay has continued his career as chairman and co-founder of ‘Doctor on Demand’ with Adam Jackson. He is also the owner of ‘RumorFixed’, a website that has been criticized for being too similar to ‘Gossip Cop’.
Hobbies, favorite things and interesting facts
Jay is definitely a talented man. Not only did he complete two very difficult degrees on varsity, but he is also a capable athlete.
He is adept at golf and enjoys playing the sport, but remains active by practicing Taekwondo and has even been rated with a black belt in the martial art of his choice. In addition, he is both a certified aviator and a diver. With all that brain and the power behind it, he would surely have a successful life.
Jay has only had one romantic engagement that attracted public attention, and it happens to be with his soulmate and partner, Erica Dahm.
