For celebs, their lives are already on display for millions of people worldwide, so it can be trying to find true love in an industry that expects you to be show-ready at all times. Luckily enough, though, these TV hosts seemed to have found partners that not only value them for what they do and how famous they are, but for who they are as people. 


It takes a certain kind of person to be able to handle the limelight, but these husbands definitely know how to deal. They're different in looks, careers, and backgrounds — some are journalists, while others are cartoonists, worship singers, or athletes! But the one thing all of these TV host husbands have in common? They're all drop dead gorgeous! 

Keep reading to see which lucky guys captured the hearts of these TV hosts! 

Giuliana and Bill Rancic met because the TV host interviewed him

Part of why Giuliana Rancic decided to leave E! News is because of her gorgeous husband Bill Rancic. The TV host told People that she and Bill were excited to be able to spend more time together and to work on their own passion projects.


The power couple produced and starred in their own hit reality show Giuliana and Bill for seven seasons. But before Bill met the former Fashion Police host, he made a name for himself as the winner of the first season of The Apprentice. Speaking to the Daily Herald about his win, Bill said he had no clue what he was getting into when he won. "It was a total mystery," he told the paper. "Reality TV was in its infancy. For me, it was always about being true to myself and letting my actions speak louder than my words." It was because of his win that he met Giuliana, as she interviewed him after his victory, as Giuliana told HuffPost

Today, Bill spends most of his time as an entrepreneur and public speaker, according to his website. He also makes sure to support and invest in causes he cares about, like Breast Cancer Awareness month (via CBS News).


TV host Candace Cameron Bure can thank her old co-star for setting her up with Valeri Bure

Former The View TV host Candace Cameron Bure met her hubby, Valeri Bure, because her Full House co-star Dave Coulier, who played Joey on the show, invited her to a charity hockey game he was playing in. Coincidentally, Valeri, also known as Val, was also playing that night. According to Candace, it was love at first sight. In an interview with the HuffPost, Candace said that she saw him playing on the ice and asked Dave to set them up. "Dave Coulier still has a hockey stick that my husband signed for him that says, 'Thanks for Candace,'" she said.


Candace and Val, although both young when they met, had incredibly successful careers on their own at the time they got together. While she was starring on Full House, Valeri was playing professional hockey for the Montreal Canadiens (via Good Housekeeping). Valeri played professional hockey on a handful of teams in addition to the Canadiens — he also played for the Spokane Chiefs, the Florida Panthers, and the Dallas Stars — before retiring in 2004 (via Hockey DB).

The View TV host Sunny Hostin and her husband are a total power couple

The View's Sunny Hostin has an impressive resumé. She's a journalist, lawyer, podcast host, and TV host. And it looks like she didn't marry down, either. Her husband, Emmanuel Hostin, is an orthopedic surgeon in New York, according to U.S. News & World Report. He graduated with his medical degree from Johns Hopkins University.


Because of his background in orthopedic surgery, Sunny says he's been known to get on her for her shoe choices. "My husband is a sports doctor," she told Into the Gloss. "Whenever he sees my shoes, he is like, 'How are you wearing these heels? You're going to have all of these problems!'"

Sunny and Emmanuel are very big on spending quality time with their family and community. The couple, who share children Gabriel and Paloma, are known for hosting huge holiday parties at their home in Purchase, N.Y. "We host an annual Easter egg hunt for 200 kids. We have a Halloween party every year. We've had a wedding. We've had an engagement party," she told People, noting, "We've done it all." She went on, "Our house is always filled with people, and for a big house, it's really important."


TV host Hoda Kotb kept her relationship with Joel Schiffman out of the public eye at first

Hoda Kotb kept her relationship with longtime partner Joel Schiffman under wraps until one particular interview with Andy Cohen on Watch What Happens Live (via E! News). For a while, she only referred to him as "Boots" when she spoke about him in public. When she eventually did reveal the identity of her mystery man, she said that he had already gotten the stamp of approval from Kathie Lee Gifford and Gifford's husband, Frank. "That went well," Kotb told the TV host of their first get-together. "Look, he loved her [Kathie-Lee]. He met Frank — he was enamored."


In December 2019, Kotb told People that Schiffman proposed to her in Mexico that November and that they planned on getting married pretty quickly. Seeing as they share two children, she told the outlet that there's nothing they're really waiting for. 

Kotb and Schiffman are older than the average bride and groom, she noted, but Kotb said that the timing of it all was perfect in its own way. "Everything may look out of order, and it kind of feels it a little bit, but it is all right on time," she told People.

Kelly Ripa is one TV host that met her husband at a previous job

From all the Live! With Kelly iterations to her time as an actress on All My Children, it's easy to see why everyone loves Kelly Ripa. On top of all her popular work, the TV host also happened to tie the knot with one of the most beautiful men working in television today: Mark Consuelos. And you don't need to take our word for it — People named the Riverdale star one of the sexiest men of the year, as shared by Ripa on Live! With Kelly and Ryan in 2019.


The pair met at a screen test for All My Children, where Consuelos was auditioning for the role of Ripa's character's lover. He ended up getting the part, but Consuelos told HuffPost that he wasn't concerned with landing a date with Ripa initially. "I thought she was adorable, hot and sexy and all that stuff," he said. "I didn't really think I had a chance with her, so I wasn't really focused on that."

Outside of his roles on All My Children and Riverdale, Consuelos has made waves on television shows like American Horror Story, Broad City, and Queen of the South.

TV host Leah Remini and husband Angelo Pagan left Scientology together

Leah Remini's time as a TV host on The Talk was short-lived, but she's since moved on to bigger and better things — like hosting the groundbreaking Leah Remini: Scientology and the Aftermath, which concluded in 2019 (via Deadline). In addition to her success on television, she's also found success in her personal life with husband Angelo Pagán, who is also an actor. He's known for his roles on 24 and King of Queens, but he's also made appearances on shows like Kevin Can Wait and The Last Ship.


The cute couple met at Cuban restaurant, according to an interview with her daughter for Redbook. Remini told her daughter, Sofia, "For me, it was love at first sight." Pagán is also known for being a former Scientologist along with his wife. He left the church with Remini in 2013, and he was completely in support of her being outspoken about their time as Scientologists, as noted by Us Weekly.

CBS TV host Jane Pauley got to interview husband Garry Trudeau on her show

Famous married couples know that it's hard to keep up with married life, and no one knows this to be truer than CBS TV host Jane Pauley and her husband, cartoonist (and silver fox) Garry Trudeau. The Pulitzer Prize-winning creator of "Doonesbury" has even gone on the record saying that sometimes his work on the comic would get in the way of his personal life. His honeymoon with Pauley was actually delayed so he could meet his deadline. "Yeah, I had strips to finish up," he said in an interview with his wife for CBS News. "And I would finish them often at the airport. It was always working around the margins of family life." He joked that their children will probably have to talk a lot about it in their future therapy sessions. 


However, it actually seems like Trudeau has been a great father, according to a piece written by Pauley and Trudeau's son Ross Trudeau for Fatherly. Ross talked about how affectionate and enthusiastic he was when they were kids, but also about how that persona changed when Trudeau worked on the comic strip. "[Inside] the studio, he seemed to me perceptibly more solemn, more focused, more staid," Ross wrote.

Brandon Blackstock is now TV host Kelly Clarkson's manager

The Kelly Clarkson Show TV host married talent manager Brandon Blackstock in October 2013, after dating for 10 months and being engaged for four (via Country Living). Although the pair eventually married in 2013, they had actually met at the rehearsals for the American Country Music Awards in 2006 (via Good Housekeeping). Blackstock's dad was Kelly Clarkson's manager at the time, and his stepmom was none other than Reba McEntire, Clarkson's mentor. Even then, Clarkson told People, she knew there was something special about him. 


They reconnected at the 2012 Super Bowl where Blackstock was there supporting his client, Blake Shelton. Shelton was actually the person to push Blackstock into proposing to Clarkson. "I told Brandon, 'Man, you need to grow up and you figure out that you need to marry this girl," Shelton told Hollyscoop (via HuffPost). "I will do the music at the wedding or whatever you want to do, I'll be that guy... cause you need to get you[r] head out of your a** and ask that girl to marry you." In addition to managing Shelton, Blackstock also managed Clarkson.

Unfortunately, their relationship wouldn't last. In June 2020, Clarkson filed for divorce from Blackstock, citing " irreconcilable differences," as reported by Entertainment Tonight.


Today show TV host Natalie Morales' husband is a big-time investor

Natalie Morales, a TV host for the Today show, married businessman Joe Rhodes in August 1998, according to their New York Times wedding announcement. 

Rhodes, who is a pretty private person, is the managing partner at Stockton Road Capital, which is the equity firm he owns that's based in Los Angeles (via LinkedIn). The firm has invested in huge brands like Lenny & Larry's, Daiya, and Amerifit, as seen on the company's website. Rhodes graduated with a degree in finance from University of Colorado, Boulder and graduated from Columbia Business School with a Master's in 2002. He's definitely got brains and beauty! 


Closer Weekly found that his father, Joseph S. Rhodes, was the managing director of Prudential Insurance Company's financial services division in Chicago. His father's business background suggests that business-savvy skills (and the name "Joe Rhodes") might just be apart of the Rhodes family tradition!

Strahan, Sara and Keke TV host Sara Haines met Max Shifrin on OkCupid

Dating has changed a lot over the last 100 years. Today, so many couples meet through online dating — even TV hosts like Strahan, Sara and Keke's Sara Haines! Haines met her now-husband, Max Shifrin, on OkCupid, and they hit it off pretty quickly — even though he had no idea she was a famous journalist (via Yahoo! Lifestyle). The pair had a pretty chill relationship, and Haines has talked about how she wasn't even sure if he was "The One" (via Brides). A couple of years later, Shifrin proposed on a random Tuesday morning. "I didn't have a big plan, I didn't have a big production," Shifrin told Yahoo! Lifestyle. "So I literally got up, crawled out of bed in my pajamas and got on one knee on the floor next to the bed. And proposed awkwardly and without much charm at all." 


In addition to being Haines' good-looking husband and the father to their children, Shifrin is an established lawyer (via People). He's an associate who focuses on commercial litigation with BakerHostetler in New York City, according to the firm's website

The Real TV host Tamera Mowry-Housley's husband has covered huge news stories

Tamera Mowry-Housley is known for keeping it real as a TV host on The Real, and it's obvious that her cute husband, Fox News correspondent Adam Housley — whom she married in 2011 (via People) — is aware of that, as seen on their YouTube series The Housley Life.


Housley is known for his work as one of the first correspondents to cover the Haiti earthquake in 2010 (via TV Newser). He's also covered stories like the Japanese earthquake in 2011 and the terrorist attack in San Bernadino in 2015 — among many others. 

Mowry-Housley and Housley, who share children Aden and Ariah, aren't afraid to be open about their lives together, which prompted them to start their YouTube series. "If you follow us on social media or you see us on television, you know that it's all about family and friends," he said in one video. "We love getting everyone together, and what ensues is usually love and chaos."

TV host Lara Spencer's hubby Rick McVey owns a huge fintech company

Good Morning America TV host Lara Spencer tied the knot to her second husband, tech entrepreneur Rick McVey, in September 2018 (via People). The pair were set up on a blind date by a mutual friend, and he proposed in January 2018, after two years together. Their wedding was super sweet and integrated the children from the couple's previous marriages, with Lara's son Duff walking her down the aisle.


Outside of being the TV host's gorgeous husband, Rick has had an impressive career as the founder, chairman, and CEO of MarketAxess, a successful financial tech company that streamlines the bond trading process, according to the company website. Before he branched off and started his own company, he also spent time as the head honcho of the North American investor relations department of J.P. Morgan in the '90s, according to his LinkedIn page.

The Real TV host Adrienne Bailon was friends with Israel Houghton for years before they got together

Sometimes, "The One" has actually been in your life for years. At least, that's what happened with friends-turned-partners Adrienne Bailon and Israel Houghton. Even when he officially got divorced from his first wife and started dating again, Bailon had been setting him up with her own friends. The TV host and former member of girl group 3LW told People, "He didn't think they'd want to go out with him but I told him, 'Don't be silly. You have a great smile, you're successful, you're kind, super witty, funny and smart. Of course they'll go out with you.'"


Houghton is a worship singer, songwriter, and producer, whose records have won him multiple Grammy Awards, including best pop/contemporary gospel album and best traditional gospel album. Because of his Christian background, he's also been extremely open about his personal life and his own shortcomings — even going as far as to pen a long Facebook post to his fans about his divorce from his first wife (via Christian Post).

Jedediah Bila's husband, Jeremy Scher, changed the TV host's opinion on marriage

Fox & Friends TV host Jedediah Bila told Parade that for the longest time she didn't know if she wanted to get married and have kids. But all of that changed when she met future hubby, Jeremy Scher, who is a strategic planning and business development manager for Hachette Book Group in New York City (via LinkedIn). The couple married in 2018 (via Us Weekly). 


While there is not a lot of info on Scher himself, we do know that he swept the TV personality off her feet. He's also been a really supportive husband, especially as she's been open about her fertility journey. When they tried to freeze her embryos at the beginning of their marriage, her body didn't respond well to the process. And even though Scher did want to have kids pretty early, he understood that the whole process would take time. "Jeremy was really supportive of my feelings and we decided that we were really okay in a 'whatever will be, will be' space," Bila told Parade about their journey. Fortunately, the couple did conceive, and they had their first son in November 2019 (via People).


TV host Jenny McCarthy and Donnie Wahlberg met during a press interview

Of course, how could we forget the most famous TV host husband of them all — Jenny McCarthy's husband Donnie Wahlberg. Although McCarthy was only on The View from 2013 to 2014, she definitely made a mark on the show's history (via Vulture).


Everyone knows Wahlberg from his work as an actor on mega-hit shows and movies like The Sixth Sense, the Saw series, and Blue Bloods. He's also famous for being a part of the New Kids on the Block boy band that gained mainstream success in the 1980s. Even though the band split in the '90s, they reunited in 2007 to record an album that was released in 2008, as reported by CNN

It was during the band's revival that Wahlberg met McCarthy on Andy Cohen's Watch What Happens Live in 2012. So, the pair actually have the TV host to thank for their relationship (via E! News)!
