Today, meteorologist Steve Jacobs, 54, says he leads an active love life as a divorced single dad – and admits finding girlfriends has been easier than expected.
Former Today Show weather anchor Steve Jacobs opened up about his love life in a new interview.
The TV personality, 54, told Jana Hocking’s Kinda Sorta Dating podcast that he was surprised at how easy it was to date his wife Rosie in early 2018.
He had expected women not to care about him because he was divorced with children, but in fact it was the opposite.

“The only thing that worried me was when I got single with kids, was that no woman would be interested,” Steve said.
“But I have to say that hasn’t even been a problem with one person I’ve seen.”
He also said he was not a fan of dating apps and preferred to meet people in person at social gatherings.

Steve was rumored to be dating the mother of two, Amanda King, whom he met at his daughter’s elementary school in 2019.
But he told Daily Mail Australia their relationship was strictly platonic.
Despite this denial, the couple have been seen together several times since.
Steve split from Channel Nine in 2019, after being replaced by Tim Davies as the traveling weather presenter of the Today show.
Ladies’ man: “The only thing that worried me was that when I became single with children, no woman would be interested,” he said. “But I have to say that wasn’t even a problem with one person I saw”
He had been on the program on and off since 2005, but had spent much of 2019 as a studio meteorologist.
As his exit came amid a staff reshuffle, Steve insisted it was his decision to leave.
Taking to Instagram after the news broke, he claimed the real reason he was leaving was to spend more time with his daughters.
“Unfortunately, I cannot commit to the future demands of work travel and I have to prioritize my beautiful daughters… They are my world, my life, my joy,” he wrote.

Steve shares his daughters Isabella, ten, and Francesca, eight, with his ex-wife Rosie Jacobs, whom he separated in 2018.
The former couple had moved to Vanuatu with their daughters in mid-2017, in what friends say was a “last ditch” to save their marriage.
However, things fell apart in a matter of months.
