Who were Bob Saget's wives? Actor wed Kelly Rizzo after split with Sherri Kramer
Bob Saget's second wife Kelly Rizzo is 23 years younger than the late TV star and comedian
Noted Hollywood actor and comedian Bob Saget has tragically died on Sunday, January 10, 2022, as confirmed by the Orange County Sheriff's Office in Florida. He was found dead inside his hotel room at the Ritz-Carlton in Grande Lakes, Orlando. The beloved star, known for his performances in 'Full House', 'Fuller House', 'How I Met Your Mother', and other sitcoms, died at the age of 65 years. While the cause of his death is yet to be ascertained, investigators did not find any signs of foul play or drug usage in the preliminary probe.
Saget is survived by his wife Kelly Rizzo, a journalist whom he married in 2018. Rizzo happened to be Saget's second wife, who met the actor following his split for first wife Sherri Kramer. Bob Saget is also survived by his children Aubrey Saget, Lara Melanie Saget, and Jennifer Belle Saget, whom he shares with Kramer.
Who is Bob Saget's second wife Kelly Rizzo?
Kelly Rizzo is a popular TV host, known for being the face of the show 'Eat Travel Rock'. A travel and lifestyle expert who has appeared on EXTRA, Bravo, and ABC, Rizzo is over 23 years younger than Saget. The duo met virtually a few years ago when the actor left a message on Rizzo's Instagram DM. She was not going to reply at first, but eventually gave in to her instincts and struck up a conversation with the former host of 'America's Funniest Videos'.
Rizzo later revealed that Saget asked her out for some 'burgers and lobsters' as he DM-ed, "Hey, want to come to a show of mine and then go out for some burgers and lobsters." The pair eventually started dating and fell in love. They tied the knot in 2018. "Oh no, I kind of like him. And then we got married. And now it’s been five years, and, yes, our house is very clean. And, no, being married to a comedian does not mean everything is always funny," Rizzo shared in a now-viral video.
Despite their age difference, the couple appeared to be happily in love and were often spotted enjoying their time together. Barely a few days before his tragic death, Bob Saget's wife had revealed that the couple spent their first-ever Christmas together in 2021. “Merry Christmas Eve everyone! So happy to spend my very first Christmas with @BobSaget (even though we’ve been married over 3 years!),” she wrote in an Instagram post. As fate would have it, it turned out to be the last ever Christmas together for the happy couple.
Who was Bob Saget's first wife Sherri Kramer?
Saget married his first wife Sherri Kramer back in 1982, when he was 26 years old and Kramer was also the same age. The couple shares three daughters together, who also happen to be Saget's only children. Their eldest daughter Aubrey was born in 1987 followed by Lara in 1989, and Jennifer in 1992.
Five years after Jennifer's birth, Kramer and Saget decided to separate in 1997, in the 15th year of their marriage. Court documents show that Kramer cited irreconcilable differences as the reason for their divorce.
According to Heavy, Sherri Kramer is presently a resident of Los Angeles, California where she is believed to be working as a marriage and family therapist. She has not released any statement yet following the sudden death of her former husband and father of her kids Bob Saget.
