Who is Andrew Giuliani's wife Zivile Rezgyte? A look at Rudy Guiliani's son's love life and fairytale wedding
Andrew Giuliani, the son of former New York Mayor Rudy Giuliani, announced that he’s planning to run for the governor of New York in 2022. He is expected to face an uphill battle in the heavily Democratic state in a bid against the current governor Andrew Cuomo. He told Washington Examiner, “I believe I can win the race. I think I'm the right candidate, and this is the right time to help change New York State, and we've got a playbook that works."
"Outside of anybody named Trump, I think I have the best chance to win and take the state back, and I think there's an opportunity in 2022 with a wounded Democratic candidate, whether it's going to be Gov (Andrew) Cuomo, whether it's going to be a radical (attorney general), Letitia James, whether it's going to be a no-name lieutenant governor, I think there's a very, very real chance to win," he added.
While the younger Guiliani has worked under Trump in the White House, he has never been elected to public office. He was born to Rudy and Donna Hanover. As far as his personal life is concerned, he made headlines with his wedding to real estate executive Zivile Rezgyte in 2017. Read on to know more details about their fairytale wedding.
Who is Zivile Rezgyte?
Rezgyte is a real estate executive and wife of Andrew. She is 41 years old and is seven years older than Andrew. She reportedly migrated from Lithuania more than 10 years ago and at the time couldn’t even speak English, reports Daily Mail. She is now an American citizen and a well-established executive realtor. While not much is known about their romantic life, the couple met in 2014 while attending Derek Jeter’s last game at Yankees Stadium. Andrew proposed to Rezgyte after two years of dating. He was visiting her family in her hometown when he reportedly asked Zivile’s mother for her daughter’s hand in marriage.
He told Page Six, “I called to ask her mother for her hand a few days before we left [New York] for her hometown in Lithuania.” He went down on one knee “on a boardwalk in the Baltic Sea in Palanga. I proposed with her mom, sister, cousin and two nephews present”. Talking about the wedding he had told at the time, “We are working on the guest list right now, but considering Zivile’s success, I’m sure there will be plenty of the biggest names in real estate there.”
Andrew and Zivile had a beautiful wedding
The couple got hitched at the Church of St Joseph in Greenwich Village, which is believed to be one of the oldest Roman Catholic churches in Manhattan. Zivile wore a beautiful laced gown with a long train. Her sister was her maid of honor and Andrew’s friend was his best man.
The wedding saw around 250 guests including retired Canadian ice hockey player Rod Gilbert, New York Knicks player John Starks and Notre Dame football coach Lou Holtz. They traveled to Italy for their honeymoon.
