Does Mike Pence call his wife ‘mother’?
Several legislators that were invited over to Mike Pence’s house when he was governor of Indiana overheard him calling his wife Karen “mother”, according to Rolling Stones magazine.
The seven legislators invited heard Pence shouting to Karen across the table saying: “Mother, Mother, who prepared our meal this evening?”
While some thought it was a joke and were in disbelief, Pence asked his wife a different question but still referred to her as “mother.”
“Mother, Mother, whose china are we eating on?” he asked Karen.
Karen supposedly then explained to the guests where the expensive china they were using for dinner had come from, as many were still shocked that her husband had such a strange pet name for her.
Who is Mike Pence’s wife Karen?
Karen Pence, 63, was the First Lady of Indiana from 2013 to 2017 and was also a school teacher and painter.

When did they get married?
Prior to marrying Pence, Karen was married to her high school sweetheart John Steven Whitaker.
The pair married in 1978 and divorced shortly after.
