In her IG post, she wrote,

This past weekend, we got to celebrate our 6th anniversary in the city where it all began! #NYC!! Hubby took me to @parm where we had our 1st date. After, I thought I was on the Bachelor. We went to what felt like the top of the world and my son hands me a single ?(& a @dior bag ?). It’s hard to believe that it’s been 6 years!!! But of course it’s been 6 years. We created two humans!! Any who. What a joyous ride it’s been. I’m so glad that seven years ago, I was brave enough to slip into his DM. Here’s to 70 more years. Here’s to chasing down your childhood crush (& not getting a restraining order but rather a ? ?) *
When I 1st moved to NYC, 1 of the best advice I got was from fellow reporter @cathyhobbs. “She told me: you gotta work the scene HARD. Be just as ambitious and strategic about shaping your personal life as your career.” Life is not a Meg Ryan movie. For the most part, you won’t just stumble into love. Be deliberate. Be brave. I hope this post inspires you to get after that love. ???? #happyanniversary #bestdecisionever

Together the couple shares two children; a son, Driggs, born on 22 February 2015, and a daughter named Lulu in July 2018.
