Matt Bevin is the current Governor of the state of Kentucky, and he is only the third Republican to take the Governor’s office in Kentucky since the end of the Second World War. The Conservative Republican rode the outsider horse, and after unsuccessfully mounting a Senatorial race against Mitch McConnell, Matt took the Governor’s office in 2015.
In his attempt to become Governor, Matt went up against Jack Conway, who was linked with President Obama (extremely unpopular in Kentucky). Matt won and took office from two terms, Governor Steve Beshear. After four years in office, the Governor was ousted by Steve Beshear’s son Andy Beshear.
The Republican soon to be former Governor is also a devoted family man who refused to move into the Governor’s mansion after his election so his children need not adjust to a new surrounding and school. Matt got married in 1996 to his wife Glenna Bevin, and they are parents to their ten kids, five are their biological kids, four are adopted, and their adult daughter died in 2003.

In 1996 Matt Bevin met his future wife Glenna Bevin, the two got married in the same year, and after the marriage, Matt became the step-father of his wife’s first child Brittiney Bevin. Glenna was in an abusive marriage when her first child was born on 19 October 1985.
Brittiney was 11 years old when her mother remarried to the politician, and after the wedding, she took the last name of her step-father Matt. She was the eldest of his children, and according to her obituary, the little girl presented a bubbly personality.
After the death of their daughter, Glenna spoke about her religious beliefs and her compassion for other people. Matt also spoke about how she was a normal teenager who thought about her appearance, nail polish, and boys, later on in her life, but she always loved god and was a devout follower of the Christian religion.
