We looked into the details of A-lister’s romance and saw that it was more serious than anyone anticipated. The couple has been together since 2015 and recently bought a home in London. They have also become parents, welcoming a baby girl into their family in January 2019.
Who is Michael Angarano?
Michael Angarano is a French-Italian chef who made a name for himself in London. He began his culinary training, first, in his hometown of Nice, then in London, where he worked under the supervision of Gordon Ramsay. He is famous for reviving classic French cuisine for a modern audience and for offering seasonal menus, incorporating ingredients from all over the world.
After establishing himself in London, he became the head chef of Le Caprice, which was later purchased by George Clooney. In 2014, Angarano opened Estiatorio Milano, a six-course Italian restaurant in London. Its signature dish is the Milanese sandwich, which is named after the northern Italian city.
Rumors of an A-list affair with a chef began swirling in 2017 when the pair were spotted celebrating Angarano’s birthday at the Ivy Club in London. They were also spotted spending time together at exclusive restaurants like Nobu and Mugrabi. Since then, the chef and the actor have fueled speculation that they are secretly engaged or married. In April 2019, it was reported that the pair had purchased a home in London’s exclusive Highgate suburb. They were also photographed visiting a children’s store with the baby. On April 23, it was revealed that the pair had indeed become parents when the actress gave birth to their daughter, Eve.
How Does He Compare to Other Famous Chef-Wives?
As a celebrity chef, Michael Angarano has been compared to other famous chef-wives. Let’s compare him to the most notable of the bunch.
First up, we have Catherine Zeta Jones, who is married to actor Scott Jones. The couple were married in 1994 and have three children together. On a red velvet cake, the bride wrote, “I love you, darling. Happy Anniversary.” The couple’s children are Ella (then 8), Finley (6), and Henry (4).
In 2011, Zeta Jones appeared on The Graham Norton Show and discussed her wedding day, noting that she and Jones plan to celebrate their 25th anniversary in November 2021 by renewing their wedding vows. She also revealed that since her husband is a celebrity chef, their relationship has been affected by his fame. As a result, the couple’s private life is now out in the open.
Next, we have Kate Hudson, who is married to actor/director Ryan Gosling. The couple started dating in 2013 and were subsequently engaged the following year. The couple have two sons together, Blade (born in 2014) and Kitze (born in 2018).
On September 1, 2019, Hudson posted a picture on social media of herself and Gosling, wearing matching wedding dresses, along with a message to her followers about their upcoming wedding: “Wedding bell will ring in the near future! We are so happy and excited to share this with you all. Thank you for being there for us through this whole process. We could not have asked for better friends and family to share this day with us. We are overwhelmed with gratitude. God bless you both.”
And last but not least, we have Kelly Preston, who is married to actor John Travolta. The couple began dating in 2011 and were wed on July 31, 2014. The bride chose a white gown with a long train that she later removed, due to technical glitches. The couple have three children together, including a set of twins: Jett and Jada. The groom’s birthday is on October 18, so they are celebrating a milestone birthday with the family.
Michael Angarano is the first chef-wife to be compared to this illustrious group, which includes some of Hollywood’s most esteemed actresses. It will be interesting to see how he measures up to the challenge. Will he live up to the hype? Let’s find out.
