Tim Mynett, is a political consultant and the new husband of Somali-born US representative, Ilhan Omar.
The congresswoman had previously denied a relationship with Mynett however, she revealed on social media that she’s a newly married woman, again!
The Minnesota democrat has had a whirlwind of a love life; the 38-year-old, filed for divorce from the father of her three children, Ahmed Hirsi, last year.
Ilhan Omar and ex- Ahmed Hirsi had an unconventional story, the two became engaged in 2002 but never actually walked the isle at that time. Instead, they welcomed two children and went their separate ways around 2008.
During that time, Ilhan Omar tied the knot to another Ahmed. She and British Ahmed Nur Said Elmi divorced in 2011 –the same year she and Ahmed Hirsi reconciled.
Omar and Hirsi welcomed their third child in 2012 and she and British Ahmed were legally divorced in 2017. Finally in 2018, she and Ahmed Hirsi were able to get married only to divorce in 2019.
