Muir’s personal life
The 48-year-old has always been extremely private about his personal life and is known to keep his life behind the curtains and out of his job.
Muir is known to be very close to his parents and that’s the one thing he doesn’t shy away from flaunting to the world, his relationship with his family. The journalist is also close to his siblings and often sees posts about their children on his own Instagram.

During this time, Benetiz was not openly gay, but was seen roaming the studio the most, when Muir was around, sparking rumors of something going on between the two.
