After around five years of dating, the two exchanged vows in a private ceremony attended by their closest friends and family, at Wye of Carmichel United Methodist Church in Queenstown, Maryland in July 1994.
The two initially agreed to wait to have children and to focus on their careers, so it was several years later that they welcomed their daughter Hartley, while their son Peter followed around two years later – their third daughter was born years later, and both the date of her birth and her name have been kept a secret.

Who is Jim Acosta?
Abilio James ‘Jim’ Acosta was born in Washington D.C., USA, on 17 April 1971 – his zodiac sign is Aries and he holds American nationality. He is a journalist, who might be known best for the work he has done for CNN as their chief White House correspondent.
Jim was raised in Washington, D.C. by his father who came to the US from Cuba at the age of 11, and his mother who is of Czech and Irish descent. Jim attended Annandale High School, from which he matriculated in 1989, and then enrolled at James Madison University, from which he graduated with a Bachelor’s degree in mass communication in 1993.
Jim launched his career while still attending college, as he worked at WXJM student radio station, while he also worked as a reporter at WSVA radio station. His first more serious job came in 1993 when he joined WMAL, then after a year there, Jim quit and joined his first TV station – WTTG-TV as their desk assistant. In 1995, he became a reporter and a fill-in anchor at WBIR-TV, holding the job until 1998 when he joined KTVT-TV in Dallas. After two years there, he moved to WBBM-TV in Chicago, and in 2003 switched to CBS News where he stayed for the following four years.
During the years he spent at CBS, Jim covered various important stories such as Hurricane Katrina and the Iraq War which he reported on from Baghdad. In 2007, he quit and started working for CNN, becoming their national political correspondent in February 2012. On 9 January 2018, he became chief White House correspondent.
Jim might also be known best for a Donald Trump press conferences he has attended – in 2016, Donald Trump called him ‘a real beauty’ and a year later, he interrupted Jim while he was asking a question, and accused CNN of propagating ‘fake news’.
On 7 November 2018 during a press conference at the White House, Jim ‘put his hands on a young woman just trying to do her job as a White House intern’, and his US Secret Service security credentials were suspended, meaning he was no longer able to enter the White House. This led Jim and CNN to file a civil suit against Donald Trump and many other people working at the White House on 13 November 2018, and on 16 November Jim received his credentials back for two weeks – three days later, the suit was dropped by CNN.
Jim is also an author, having released his book “The Enemy of the People: A Dangerous Time to Tell the Truth in America” in 2019.
