Bryce Ford Wheaton Family & Ethnicity
Third generation Mountaineer behind grandfather Garrett Ford Sr. and uncle Garrett Ford Jr., who were standout running backs at West Virginia. His grandfather was also a longtime athletics administrator at WVU.
Tracie and her ex-husband, Jay, have three children together, Bryce, Jayne, and Alan. When Tracie’s marriage ended in 2009 with Jay and she started a relationship with filmmaker Keith Whiten, their family looked different than the average American family. There was an age gap of 22 years between her youngest child and her youngest stepchild.
Her kids ranged from 27 years old to 45 years old which is quite a big span. But what made this even more unique was that they were all adopted.
As they traveled the world adopting these three kids, they came across many different ethnicities that were all blended into one happy family. There are many things that make this family unique but there are also some similarities too. All four of these siblings share a love for surfing and yoga and it has been said that each one loves being around each other just as much as any biological brother or sister would love being around each other.
