Who Is Carrie Ann Inaba's Boyfriend, Fabien Viteri?

Carrie Ann Inaba became a household name more than a decade ago as a judge on "Dancing with the Stars" before becoming a cohost on "The Talk." As a result, her love life has also received a lot of press. Through the years, she has been linked to "DWTS" pro Artem Chigvintsev; accountant Jesse Sloan (who proposed to her on "Live with Regis & Kelly" in 2013); and "General Hospital" actor Robb Derringer, who also popped the question to Inaba in 2016 (via US Weekly). While none of those relationships worked out, it looked like Inaba had finally found true love in 2020 when she started dating Fabien Viteri.

"So, I met this man; he's from my neighborhood, and we met, sort of, walking our dogs, and there's more to the story ... He's older than I am, and he's a wonderful human being," she said on "The Talk." "And now, I understand how a relationship can work. He's been so supportive and a mature adult 'cause maybe sometimes I'm not, so that's working really well."

Although Inaba revealed in May 2021 that she was once again single, less than one month later she posted photos on Instagram looking very cozy with Viteri. So who is the man that has convinced Inaba to give him another shot?

Carrie Ann Inaba has reconciled with boyfriend Fabien Viteri

Carrie Ann Inaba is taking another chance on love with Fabien Viteri. Despite his high-profile relationship, Viteri lives a private life and not much is known about him. He has reportedly worked as a vehicle manufacturer for companies including Ducati North America and Tesla (via Stars Offline). He has a daughter, Sasha, who is a sophomore at Massachusetts Bay Community College (via LinkedIn), as well as a husky named Aries. He and Inaba frequently share photos of their dogs on social media, and the couple seems to love the outdoors.

Inaba was devastated when she and Viteri parted ways in May 2021, writing on social media, "It was real. True love. And I'm so sad it's over. But I'm grateful it happened. So very grateful" (via US Weekly) But less than one month later, she posted shots of the two looking happy and in love. It's no doubt Viteri has been a support system for Inaba, who announced in August 2021 that she was leaving "The Talk" after three seasons. 

"I enjoyed my time at 'The Talk' as co-host and moderator and I am grateful for the opportunity I had to grow with the entire Talk family as well as truly connect with viewers on such a personal level," she said in a statement (via Deadline). "I will miss 'The Talk,' but I am excited for the next chapter both for myself and for the show."'
