Who Is Danica McKellar’s Ex-Husband, Mike Verta?
Mike is a composer who has worked on music for films, television series and video games. Some of his biggest projects include the Inspector Mom movies and five episodes of the miniseries Blader in 2019. In addition to his work as a composer, Mike also garnered IMDb credits for visual effects, directing and acting.
During their marriage, Danica and Mike welcomed one child together, son Draco, in 2010. Despite their split, the former couple remained dedicated to making sure that Draco was their biggest priority.
“I believe that was the hardest thing I’ve ever been through,” Danica recalled the divorce process during an April 2019 interview with Closer. “And I have advice for anyone going through a divorce if there are kids involved: Just be generous, and don’t bring them into it. If you hold on tight, the other person is going to hold back, and when kids are caught in the middle … What kids want is love and for everyone to get along. Luckily his dad is a fantastic father. We get along great, much better than we did before, and we’re generous with each other.”

Scott has one son, Hunter, from a previous relationship. Danica previously gushed to Closer about their blended family.
“He’s a great partner — sweet, supportive, loving. We each brought a child into our marriage — Hunter’s 14, and my son, Draco, is 8,” she said. “We’re raising them alongside each other. Watching their friendship develop, they just play and have so much fun. What a blessing!”
