The marriage wasn't the first one for Gross, either. He was previously married to the late Kathleen McBride. Gross's former wife died in 2006 due to cervical cancer. Gross has two children from his first marriage.
Even though Bill is unhappy about his ex-wife's new marriage, his daughter Madeline seems to be happy for her mother. Madeline resides with her mother, step-father, and step-siblings in a mansion in Manhasset, a New York Island, worth $4 million.
The estimated net worth of Madeline's father, Bill, is around $85 million. However, the net worth of Madeline's mother, Maureen, is still unknown. However, it can be easily assumed that even Maureen's net worth is millions of dollars.
Bill O'Reilly's net worth is the result of the money he earned from his career as a journalist and television host of shows on broadcasting networks such as the Fox News Channel, which he left amid sexual harassment scandals in 2017.
In addition to being an anchor, Bill is also a well-received author of several books, including the New York Times bestseller Killing Patton, published in 2014. The earnings from his book sales have also added to his net worth.
