One Happy Bunch! A Guide to ‘Cake Boss’ Star Buddy Valastro’s Wife, Kids and Family

For years, Buddy Valastro — with a team of family and friends at Carlo’s Bakery — have been entertaining viewers on TLC’s popular reality series Cake Boss. But there’s more to the baker than just the tasty treats he makes on the program. Buddy is actually a loving husband to wife Lisa Valastro and a great father to their four kids, Sofia, Buddy Jr., Marco and Carlo.

The baker is clearly all about his children, as he once gushed to, “I am a busy guy. As busy as I am I still have a strong bond and relationship with my kids. I will take them when I travel.”

But even life on the road can be hard for Buddy sometimes, especially when he packs his family in an RV and cruises around America filming Buddy’s Family Vacation. “There is fighting and screaming and some craziness, but I wouldn’t have it no other way,” he gushed. “We had a lot of fun doing it.”

At home, Buddy’s life is a little bit different. He said his favorite snack to make with his children are “chocolate chip cookies” because they learned how to do some baking when they were a little bit younger. “Now they’re on to cooking,” the dad of four explained. “It is always really hard to get kids to eat, but if they cook it they almost feel like they have to eat it.”

As his little ones got older, Buddy started to realize that they are his “best friends.” He has a “special relationship” with each one of them and every day, the TV personality cherishes the moments that he gets to spend with Sofia, Buddy Jr., Marco and Carlo.

“I was fishing with my son yesterday. It is why we do what we do. It is funny. I have a lot of accomplishments. I am not bragging, but I have done a lot of good stuff, but my biggest accomplishment is my kids and my family,” he gushed. “I have a special relationship with all of them.”
