For some, beautiful gifts and roses work the most in a romantic life while for some, tasty food items do it all. Celebrity chef Guy Fieri did the same to impress the love of his life Lori Fieri.
The couple who first met in 1993 tied the knot two years later. The father-of-two is maintaining a perfect balance between his personal and professional career. Let's get details over here!
Food Network's Guy Fieri's Married Life With Lori Fieri
Guy Fieri and his lovely wife Lori Fieri have crossed two decades of their wonderful married life and no doubt, they will definitely cross the third one.
Fieri first met Lori in 1993 and it was more like love at first sight. He was running a restaurant in Long Beach, California when he realized that he's finally encountered his match.
"Her friend had been let go from the restaurant, and they weren't supposed to be there. I was talking to her friend and saying 'Hey, listen, wait a few weeks before you come in,' and standing behind her is this blue-eyed, blonde girl giving me this mean mug."
The Guy's Grocery Games' host didn't propose his love the way normal people do instead, he cooked something for her.
"That was a long time ago. I don't remember what I made, but I do remember it was quite an epic time. The first time I cooked for her, she was just like, 'You made all this?' We both love food, so being able to cook, that was one of the things that impressed her."
Guy and Lori dated for some years and finally married in 1995. After one year of their happy marriage, the couple welcomed their first child, Hunter Fieri with their second son, Ryder Fieri in 2005.
Fieri's sons wrote an official letter to his father's fans in November 2015. The later was entitled "The Food Network is Killing Our Father". They mentioned how much their father's suffering while working on Food Network's Diners, Drive-Ins and Dives.
