Who is Greg Gutfeld's wife? Fox's late night star fell hard in love with Russian model
Greg Gutfeld is not only raking in millions through viewership for his talk show 'Gutfeld!' He won big with his model turned photo editor wife too
Beating Stephen Colbert's five-year-long reign as the most-watched late-night talk show host, Fox New's Greg Gutfeld is the new champion in total viewership when it comes to the category. The right-leaning presenter's talk show 'Gutfeld!' seems to have attracted the most attention from the 25 to 54 age demographic - an incredible feat in television comedy.
With a whopping 2.12 million viewers tuning in to watch Tuesday, August 17's telecast of 'Gutfeld!', the comedian was able to rake in about 434,000 people from the sought-after demographic. And even though Colbert's CBS talk show did manage to garner some 1.9 million views the same night, they fell short in the target demographic too, with just 423,000 people tuning in. But Gutfeld is just not winning in the television talk series category with suave. In real life, the conservative funnyman has won big time with his soulmate and wife of almost two decades, Elena Moussa.
Who is Greg Gutfeld's wife?
Gutfeld reportedly met Elena Moussa two decades ago and the couple tied the knot in 2004. Moussa, a former Russian model, is also the photo editor of the magazine, Maxim Russia. Moussa is also the founder of a design company called The Moussa Project which she established in 2011. Her social media presence is pretty low key, with posts surrounding fashion and interior decor sprinkled all over her Instagram. Both she and Gutfeld keep their private life off social media. But the way they met and fell in love is some fresh out of a modern-day romcom sketch.
Gutfeld met his future wife on the first day of his job as the editor-in-chief of Maxim UK. The year was 2004 and the talk show host was attending a conference for editors from different chapters of Maxim publications. Gutfeld and Moussa were put up in adjacent rooms and the moment he laid eyes on her, he was sold. “When I saw her, I said to the editor of Maxim Russia, ‘Who is this woman?’ And I foolishly hit on her for three days," Gutfeld once told the Daily Beast about meeting Moussa then. “She was pretty cold to me, and finally I asked her out on a date and then she moved to London to be with me.”
Five months later, a civil ceremony in New York made them man and wife. Gutfeld too eventually left London in 2006 after Maxim declined to renew his contract. But the one constant he has had in life is his gorgeous wife, Moussa, whom he showers with love by purchasing paintings made of her. In 2020, Gutfeld posted on his Instagram a huge painting of Moussa that he had recently bought. The doting husband captioned it: “Great painting of @elenamoussa by the amazing artist and badass Dallas cowboy linebacker jeff Rohrer. Just came today and totally nailed it!”
Gutfeld joined Fox news in 2007 and his talk show began just this year, debuting on April 5. "If you cannot tell the other late night shows apart, join the club," Gutfeld had said ahead of the launch of his talk show, scathingly attacking some of his competitors. "They're as bland as string cheese and not nearly as appetizing. It's the same jokes, the same assumptions, probably the same writers, all reading the same columns from the same hacks in the New York Times," he had added.
On Aug 16 night's monologue, Gutfeld joked about the Taliban's approach to the Afghans, saying: "They aren't an enlightened bunch. Not only are not only stuck in the dark ages. They prefer everyone else join them there. Their idea of women's rights is letting her air out her burka once a year. However, we've been told by the press this is a 'kinder, gentler Taliban'. What does that mean? They only partially behead you? They only throw gays out an eight-story window, not a 12-story one?'
