Nina Hansen’s Married Life & Bio

It’s not that many people do not know who Nina Hansen is, and more like people don’t really know in-depth details about Nina Hansen. For beginners, she was adopted, much like her younger sibling, Mandy. After all, Nina holds credits for appearing or having a mention in an episode or two of ‘Deadliest Catch.’ Not only does she choose to live life differently than her father and sister, but she also likes to live an utterly secretive life.

We could not even track most of her social media, and her Instagram account is also private. Most people may have come to know of her almost three years ago when she gave birth to her first child and Sig Hansen’s first grandchild, Jaxsen, on June 18, 2017. Nina Hansen certainly was happy for the delivery of her son after a labor of 24 hours.

However, her father, Sig Hansen, was equally, if not happier, as he took to Facebook with utmost excitement to post pictures of his newborn son. This is all we know about Nina Hansen’s married life. We were unfortunately not able to even find Nina Hansen’s husband’s name, so figuring out her net worth was an impossible task.

Mandy Hansen’s Net Worth & Married Life

Mandy Hansen followed her father’s footsteps and will eventually take over all his roles as captain and leading face of the ‘Deadliest Catch’ series. While holding appearances since 2014, she only got a bit of a spotlight with other ‘Deadliest Catch’ projects like her father’s documentary since 2016. We could write a separate article on just Mandy Hansen if we want to.

Mandy Hansen was born in the Hansen family in 1996 in Seattle, Washington.  She and her older sister, Nini, were adopted by Sig and June Hansen. Through her work, Mandy Hansen’s net worth is already in the estimation of being over $1 million.

Mandy Hansen is also happily married to her co-star and a greenhorn colleague at the Northwestern by the name of Clark on June 10, 2017. Yes, Mandy married her husband just a week before the birth of her nephew, Jaxsen. Their wedding ceremony took place on the docks right in front of the F/V Northwestern.

Mandy Hansen’s Miscarriage; How She Lost Her Child

Mandy Hansen and her husband have no kids yet. Clark did try to pull a prank on his father-in-law by telling him Mandy was pregnant before. Now, this was before their wedding, Sig became furious until Mandy gave him the reveal that it was just a prank. On the unfunny and tragic side, Mandy was pregnant in 2018 but went through a miscarriage resulting in the loss of her child.

We, along with her followers, got the news about it only a year later when Mandy Hansen came forth with the information, finally making it public.

“Though I lost you my previous season onboard, I still think about you every day. Words cannot describe the hurt and the love I still feel for you.” She wrote in an Instagram post with a photo of a baby onesie and shoes. May we meet one day little one. Momma’s got you in her heart forever and ever.”

We are really sorry for Mandy as we can’t even begin to contemplate the feelings of a mother who already has dreams and plans for their first child. Losing one after buying clothes and picturing a future with that child must be devastating.

Sig Hansen’s Daughter, Nobody, Knew About

More than the Sig Hansen’s daughter you never knew about, she is more like the daughter Sig Hansen does not want you to know about is Melissa Eckstrom. Many people don’t know about Sig Hansen’s life prior to his marriage with June Hansen. He was actually married to Lisa Eckstrom in the past we don’t know much about.

Anyway, there is a reason we did not know much about it. The marriage ended in quite a messy divorce with Sig Hansen’s ex-wife filing a lawsuit against him of molesting his own daughter in 1990. His daughter, who was born in 1998, was just two years old at the time. Hansen was arrested and ruled innocent in 1992 for the sexual molestation charge against his daughter but had to relinquish all custody all parental rights to his daughter in 1993.

You would think that it will end there but no. More than 26 years later, Sig Hansen’s daughter, Melissa, who is now a law attorney herself in Seattle, has once again brought up charges of molestation.

Melissa Eckstrom Accuses Father of Molestation

“I do remember being hurt by my father,” she wrote in court documents. “I have memories of my father hurting my genital region. Memories of being in a room alone with my father and crying out in pain.”

Despite already winning the case in 1990, the assault and molestation charges were never really the allegations back then. Now Melissa 32, was pressing charges against her father. She used the fact that the 1990 ruling was basically a custody battle between her mother and step-father and not her own.

Sig Hansen, who believes his ex-wife and daughter are just plotting extortion through this whole ordeal, considers it unfair to re-visit the ruling and plans to take to Supreme Court for dismissal.
