Ben Shapiro is a well-known name among conservatives for his popular daily podcast, ‘The Ben Shapiro Show’. His public life has been marked by controversies as he has time and again raised eyebrows for his stances on various social issues - from systemic racism to LGBT rights. Recently, the US conservative pundit attracted a lot of criticisms after questioning Meghan Markle’s claims of the royal family's alleged racism during Oprah Winfrey’s interview. Accusing the former actress of lying, the 37-year-old said, “I don't think it happened. The reason I don't think that happened is because no one says anything like that.”

His comments were not taken well by social media users as one tweeted, “Ben. I'm Irish. You've some reading to do if you think the British Royal family represent heightened morality." Another added, “Lol that’s a lot of words from a D-list Twitter pundit for ‘I’m threatened by strong women’." Although for many, Ben may not be a nice guy, at home he is the perfect husband and father.

Who is Ben Shapiro’s wife? How did the political commentator meet her?

Shapiro met wife Mor Shapiro in early 2000. Mor is a family medicine doctor in Woodland Hills, California, and is originally from Herzliya, Israel. She was born in 1988 to a Jewish Moroccan family. Unlike her husband, she prefers to keeps a low profile.

As per reports, Mor did her high school in Israel and for higher education, she shifted to California. While pursuing her education, she became friends with aspiring opera singer Abigail Shapiro, younger sister to Ben. It was Abigail who introduced her friend to Ben. The pair soon started dating and in 2007, they got engaged. After a year in 2008, they exchanged vows in a traditional Jewish ceremony in Acre, Israel. After the marriage, in a blog post, the media host wrote, “I got married last week... I am 24 years old. My wife is 20. Together we plan, with the help of God, on having healthy, happy, freedom-loving children who will grow up with the security provided by the armed guard."

Later, in a piece for Newsweek magazine, Ben spoke about his marriage as he said, “Early in our marriage, my wife was still in college at UCLA, and I was interested in taking a job in New York; she dutifully offered to transfer to a college across the country. When she applied to medical school across the country; I offered to move my job."



The couple formed a beautiful family eventually as they welcomed their first child, daughter Leeya Eliana, in 2014. But the little one had a congenital heart defect. When she was born, Ben wrote a letter that read, “After Mommy and Daddy prayed very hard to Hashem to give them a healthy little baby, God answered them: Eliana. So your first name is about your relationship with God, and your middle name is about how thankful we are for you.” For her medical condition, Leeya was operated on in 2015. Ben and Mor are also parents of a baby boy whom they welcomed in their family in 2016.
