Following the victory, Dober dedicated the moment to his daughter, who was tenderly held by his wife, Hollis Casey. In a light-hearted moment, he humorously speculated that, in a few years, his daughter might not care about his victory, playfully claiming she takes after him in looks.
In November 2020, Drew Dober proposed to Hollis Casey, and they are now happily married, although the exact wedding details remain private. Dober occasionally shares updates on their journey, such as an anniversary post on his Instagram on August 14. Earlier this year, Drew Dober and Casey welcomed their first baby in June 2023.
