Susan Aikens, often known as Sue Aikens, is a reality television star who has been a part of National Geographic’s Life Below Zero since 2013. She also owns and operates Kavik River Camp, which she bought in 2002.
With her lovey-dovey social media posts, Aikens has been making headlines, and fans are already wondering if her new lover is her husband.
Sue Aikens’s Current Boyfriend: Who Is He?
The 57-year-old reality star is dating Michael Heinrich, a New Yorker.
According to his Facebook page, he works as a journeyman electrician with IBEW Local #3 in Flushing, New York.
He’s referred to as ‘Sweetie’ by her
Heinrich is a big part of Aikens’ life, and she has a lot of images of him on her Instagram.
On July 26, 2020, for example, she used Instagram to share a series of cute photos. Heinrich was referred to as a sweetheart in the caption, and she urged that people should spend time for their loved ones.
“You have to stop and make time to give a moment to your sweetie.”
“Long distances are difficult, but we manage to make it work. I adore you, sweetheart “She confirmed their relationship in a letter.
Her boyfriend, like Aikens, is open about their connection on Facebook. His Facebook profile indicates that they have been in contact since July 2018 – she has been constantly commenting on his photos since then.
Is Aikens married to Heinrich already?
Despite the fact that the couple is head over heels in love, there is no sign of marriage on their social media pages.
They’re in a long-distance relationship right now. Aikens is based in Alaska, where she runs her own Kavik River Camp and stars in Life Below Zero, while Henrich is based in New York, according to his Facebook page.
Aikens has had three marriages
According to The Cinemaholic, Aikens has been married three times.
The television star’s first husband died of a brain tumor, according to reports. She married her second husband, Eddie James, for nearly 15 years after that.
Her marriage to James came to an end in 2004 when he died. With her second marriage, she had two children: a son and a daughter.
She married her third husband, but he supposedly divorced Aikens in order to be with a younger lady.
During her marriage to her second husband, Aikens remained in Oregon
Before going to Alaska, the Kavik River Camp founder lived in Oregan with her second husband. In an interview with the Straits Times in February 2016, Aikens revealed why she chose to live in such a remote location, accepting the wilderness Alaska had to offer.
“I was born an explorer and an adventurer,” she explained, “therefore city life and its inhabitants have always been challenging for me.”
“And I adored animals and felt a strong feeling of connection with them, so even if I hadn’t relocated to Alaska, I would have tried to find a way to be closer to nature.”
She went on to say that she had come to accept life’s nature.
“And you get what you get in life, so you either accept it or grow and change it to suit your needs. I’ve never been upset with my mother or others for how my life turned out. It has made me who I am and I like me very much.”
The interview also revealed that Aikens’ two children were 28 and 32 years old at the time of the interview, and both had their own families.
In 2016, Aikens’ son married
“I slipped the collar last week to see my Son wed his girl,” Aikens wrote alongside a photo of herself and her son in a happy mood. She tweeted her congratulations to the wedded couple and remarked, “You can’t take the Idgie out of this tomato…”
Aikens has become a grandmother
In January 2020, Aikens received a grandchild from one of her children. She announced the birth of her grandchild in an Instagram post in January 2020.
The excellent news was shared along with several photos of close family and friends who were present for the auspicious occasion.
The birth of the infant, however, was not Aikens’ first time as a grandmother.
In 2015, she disclosed that she had “grandkids” from her daughter in response to a user’s comment in her Twitter answers.
