Who are Anthony Fauci’s children? Daughter said expert is ‘goofball’ who sings opera in kitchen and dances around
The immunologist is a father of three daughters whom he shares with his wife Christine Grady, a fellow doctor and HIV/AIDS expert
Dr Anthony Fauci became a household name in 2020 when the Covid-19 pandemic hit the US. The 80-year-old is a physician-scientist and immunologist who is the director of the US National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases. He also serves as chief medical advisor to President Joe Biden. Since last year, he has been issuing guidelines related to the coronavirus and made important statements about the public health crisis.
Recently, he has made headlines after thousands of emails to and from Fauci were out in public, showing how pressurized the early days of the pandemic were. Though a lot is known about Fauci’s professional life, there is not much information about his personal life.
Who are Fauci's children?
Dr Fauci’s parents are reportedly the children of immigrants from Italy. The family used to run a drug store in Brooklyn, New York, where the health expert worked as a child after being born on December 24, 1940. He once said in an interview with Holy Cross Magazine, published by his alma mater, Holy Cross University in Worcester, Massachusetts, “I was delivering prescriptions from the time I was old enough to ride a bike.” Later, he topped his class at Cornell University’s medical college.
The veteran doctor first met his wife Christine Grady when the latter was appointed as a translator in a conversation with a patient from Brazil. Later as reported by Donald NS Unger for Holy Cross Magazine, Fauci asked her out, and in 1985, they went on to marry each other. He and his HIV/AIDS expert wife share three daughters together.
Fauci and Grady’s firstborn is Jennifer Ellen Fauci, who was born in August 1986. She is also in the world of health care, but not the same as her parents as she is a postdoctoral psychology fellow with a focus on child and adolescent acute services. According to reports, Jennifer first completed her graduation from Harvard University in social studies in 2008. Then, she did her master's in developmental and child psychology from Columbia University in 2013. Besides, she also earned a doctorate in Counseling Psychology from Boston College.
Currently, Jennifer has reportedly been employed by Cambridge Health Alliance, an academic community health care system in Massachusetts. She has also written two medical articles, which were published by the National Institutes of Health. She once said of her father, “He’s a goofball. He works hard and he does his thing, but he comes home and he’s singing opera in the kitchen and dancing around.”
The second child of Fauci and Grady is Megan Elizabeth Fauci, who after completing her high school education from the National Cathedral School in 2007 joined Johns Hopkins University in Baltimore for her undergraduate degree. However, she then moved into teaching and served a nonprofit organization -- City Year -- for a year. After that, Megan shifted to New Orleans for a job as an elementary school teacher.
Alison Christine Fauci is the third and the youngest kid of Fauci and Grady. She was born in April 1992. She graduated from Stanford University and majored in computer science. After completing her University education, Alison joined Twitter where she worked as a software engineer. Her work reportedly involves developing “ad formats for the Twitter for Android app.”
