The story has been retold a few times, but the details never change.
Amurri Martino was flying back to the family’s home when she was informed by her husband that he had to fire their nanny.
The sports broadcaster explained to his wife that he received the lewd text from the nanny, but that it was made to look like she was texting a friend and accidentally sent it to him.
He thought it was very awkward, especially because the nanny was coming to their house to look after Marlowe that day.
Alright. ALL my Christmas gifts are officially WRAPPED! 🙌🏻🍾💯 (No thanks to this rascal who tried to foil me at every turn…wrapping gifts around toddlers should be declared an Olympic sport 🙄🥇🏆) #HappilyEvaAfter #MomLife #ChristmasPrep #MarloweMae #ThisIsThree #Threenager #HappyHolidays (📷: @carterfish )
Martino also assumed at some point before she was scheduled to arrive would send the “Oops! I’m so sorry! I sent you a text that was meant for somebody else!” but it never came.
Martino took Marlowe out for a walk and as they were coming up the pathway, he saw the nanny looking out the window at them – from his and Eva’s bedroom window!
He met the nanny inside the house and gave her the day’s instructions. Unsure of what to say or do, he just left for his meeting.
Happy Birthday to our Number One. The most supportive, strong, and loving husband- and the most incredible father I could have ever dreamed up. Thank you for all you are and all you do. I don't even know what my life would have ended up like if you hadn't been born! As Lowie would say, "We love you MILLION ZILLION!" 💙🎂🎉 P.S.– Sorry for the premature grey hair situation. That's all me. 😜😘 (📷: @courtneyannphotography_ )
However, once there something just kept telling him something wasn’t right and to go home, so he did.
When he got there, the nanny and Marlowe were gone, which gave Martino time to find the recording app on his phone and get prepared for the very uncomfortable conversation he was about to have with the woman who had been taking care of his daughter for 18 months.
Today we went to get our Christmas Tree! 🎄⭐️ It’s a tradition for us to pick out our tree the day after Thanksgiving, and this year was the first time we picked out our tree as a completed family of four! 🤗❤️👨👩👧👦 Marlowe was super in to it (and had her game face on) as per usual, but Major? #NotSoMuch. 😂😂😂 I keep telling him the outside world is going to get so much more fun (and more comfortable) when he starts walking!! LOL. 🏃🏻♂️🤷♀️
The nanny and Marlowe arrived home and Martino already had the phone recording. Eva posted the following transcript on her blog:
Kyle: Hey. Lowie, come here– come over here with Dada
Nanny: I didn’t know you were going to be home now (this is said in a low and sultry voice)
Kyle: Yeah, I came home early….I actually wanted to ask you about something.
Kyle: When I came home earlier, why were you in our bedroom?
Nanny: I was looking for you.
Nanny: I was looking for you, I didn’t know if you were home (By the way, if you have ever been to our home, there is ZERO reason for anyone except us to be going to our bedroom for any reason. Especially her. Probable Truth: she was in there smelling his underwear. Or something even more crazy that I can’t even think of)
Kyle: (exasperated) Um. Ok. Listen, this morning I got a really inappropriate text from you…
Nanny: Oh yeah…Sorry
Kyle: Yeah. Ok. Well… needless to say, it’s not the type of environment I want in the house with you taking care of our daughter. So I’m going to have to ask you to go. I can pay you for today and then why don’t you go.
Kyle writes her a check while Marlowe asks for crackers
Kyle: Ok here you go. Thanks.
Nanny: I’m sorry I was just messing around with a friend I didn’t mean any harm.
Kyle: No need to apologize. Thanks, Bye.
(At this point she leaves and he turns the recording off)
Eva calls her husband a “Legend” in the post and it’s hard to disagree with her!
