Don't worry guys, your early-2k man crush is a-okay! Fans panicked on May 28 believing that CKY, Jackass, and Viva La Bam star Bam Margera had met his untimely demise. It all started when Hulk Hogan posted an old photo with Bam with the caption "damn Bam, I wish you were still with us, I sure would love to hang out again, miss you brother." However, it didn't take long for him to realize that what happened was that he was mixing Bam (who is very much alive) up with his deceased co-star Ryan Dunn, who tragically passed away as the result of a car accident in 2011. Luckily, Bam is thriving. Here's what he's been up to lately!
Believe it or not, Bam is a family man now. We may have gotten to know him as a wildman who laid waste to his gorgeous home, stressed out his parents, and caused himself bodily harm on a daily basis, but now he's more responsible. That's because him and his wife of five years Nicole Boyd recently welcomed their first child together, an adorable baby boy named Phoenix Wolf.
He has also gotten closer with his parents. Bam appeared on VH1's Family Therapy with his mom April in 2016 to work on their relationship after years of tormenting her. April revealed that “We have a much better level of communication. I’m not afraid to say things to him when he’s messing up. I’m not afraid to come right out and say, ’Look, you need to start thinking about this again.'” His dad Phil also seems to still love his son dearly, and enjoys spending time with his first grandson.
Bam has also struggled with sobriety over the years, but he is now sober after doing rehab following a DUI. "God damn I wasted five to maybe ten years of just sipping on beers cracking jokes at the bar with friends in Westchester, PA. That's why I don't want to go back, I'm too tempted. I don't want to be tempted," he told Revolver. That's why he and his family moved to San Francisco. He's also in way better shape. He said he suddenly got his weight to 230 pounds and couldn't believe it, so he moved into a cabin in Estonia to "hike and bike" until he got his weight under control. Here's to a happier, healthier Bam!
