Thus, fans are quite curious to know more about what things are like off-screen with Rick, especially his family. Let’s find out more about him, shall we?

Rick Harrison’s Ex-Wives

Born on March 22, 1965, in Lexington, North Carolina, Richard Kevin Harrison, or Rick, is the third child of Richard Benjamin Harrison Jr. and Joanne Rhue Harrison. At the age of 17, he and his girlfriend Kim were expecting their first child together, but unfortunately, she had a miscarriage. The couple got married in a private ceremony in 1982 and share two sons named Corey and Adam. Rick and Kim got separated in 1985.

In 1986, Rick married his second wife, Tracy, whom he met on a blind double date. In his memoir ‘License to Pawn,’ he shared that he met Tracy eight or nine months after his divorce from Kim. His friend was dating Tracy’s cousin and took him along on one of their dates. After dating for six months, Tracy moved in with Rick and immediately connected with his sons Corey and Adam. Eight months later, they got married. She didn’t just raise the boys as a hands-on mom but also helped her husband with the business.

As per Rick’s memoir, Tracy was extremely popular with the customers at the shop due to her patience and good taste. She worked in the store until the couple welcomed their son Jesse in 2003. However, after around 25 years of marriage, she and Rick got divorced in 2011. Not much is known about the reasons for his separation from both Kim and Tracy, and they have since remained out of the public eye. In 2011, Rick met Deanna Burditt, a well-known lawyer and media personality.

A year after the first date at the Aureole Restaurant in Las Vegas, Rick proposed to Deanna at the same place on February 14, 2012. On July 21, 2013, they tied the knot at Laguna Beach, California, with close friends and family in attendance. Deanna has three daughters from her previous marriages. In a 2012 interview, Rick shared that they all got along well, “It’s perfect symmetry… I’ve got three boys. She’s got three girls. We’re basically the Brady Bunch.”

Sadly, Rick and Deanna filed for divorce in July 2020 and reached a settlement agreement in September 2020. According to TMZ, Rick stated in their legal documents stated that they had irreconcilable differences due to contrasting tastes, views, and mental dispositions. However, he still considers Deanna’s daughters his own.

Rick Harrison’s Girlfriend

Rick Harrison is presently dating Tauna Harris, a Las Vegas-based realtor and interior designer. Though not much is known about how and when the couple met, Rick sometimes posts pictures on Instagram with Tauna. She first appeared on his feed in February 2022. She likes to travel and frequently posts pictures of her work projects and her trips on social media. Moreover, she regularly shares design tips on her blog. Rick and Tauna are relatively private about their relationship and prefer to keep their focus on work.


Rick Harrison’s Kids

As mentioned above, Rick shares two sons, Richard Corey Harrison and Adam Harrison, with his first wife, Kim Harrison. Born on April 27, 1983, Corey began working at the shop with his father and grandfather at the age of nine. He is presently the manager of the shop’s day-to-day operations and was given a 5% partnership in the business in 2012. In addition, he is one of the main cast members of ‘Pawn Stars’ along with his father and best friend Chumlee Russell.

On the personal front, Corey married his high school sweetheart Charlene in 2009, but the couple got divorced in 2015. Corey wed his second wife, Korina “Kiki” Harrison, in May 2017, and subsequently got divorced in September 2018 due to busy work schedules. They have a son together, who was born in October 2018.

Rick’s second son Adam Harrison was born in 1985. He did work with his family at the shop but has refrained from appearing on the show. It seems that he prefers to stay away from the limelight. As of 2016, Adam was working as a plumber. Rick also has a third son, Jake, with his second spouse Tracy. He was born in 2003. Jake first appeared with his family on ‘Pawn Stars’ in season 18 episode 12, while he was working a summer job at the shop. Though he is learning the ropes of the business from his father and brother, it is unclear whether he wishes to pursue it full-time in the future.
