Ted Bundy and Carole Ann Boone first met when he worked at the Washington State Department of Emergency Service in 1974. Ted was still dating his girlfriend Elizabeth Kloepfer at the time. Bundy and Carole Ann Boone married during his trial, taking advantage of an obscure Florida law, stating if a marriage declaration in court is made in the presence of a judge, it constitutes a legal marriage.

Rose Bundy was born on October 24th, 1982. According to E News, Carole got pregnant whilst visiting Bundy in prison. Apparently inmates would bribe prison guards into turning a blind eye to couples being left alone during visits. Boone gave birth to Rose while Bundy was still in jail.
