They are definitely making us believe in love — despite their hectic schedules! In an exclusive interview with Closer Weekly, actress Ali Wentworth dished on how she and her ABC News anchor husband, George Stephanopoulos, make time for date night.
“His schedule is so insane. He goes to bed at 8:30 p.m. because he gets up at 3 a.m., so a date night is dinner at, like, 5:30,” she revealed while attending the Take Home a Nude Art Party and Auction benefitting the New York Academy of Art in October, adding they attempt to have alone time “once a week.” She continued, “We watch a movie and we go to sleep. It’s so geriatric, but we love movies!”
Ali and George tied the knot in 2001 and are parents to two daughters — 15-year-old Elliott Anastasia and 12-year-old Harper Andrea. Back in 2014, the In Living Color star revealed that to encourage family time, they abide by a strict “no cell phones at the dinner table” rule. At the time she also admitted that Sundays were for romance. “We read The New York Times and maybe grope each other for a minute,” Ali joked. “That’s it. That’s marriage!”
The comedienne has always been pretty open about her family’s life at home, and back in 2015, she made headlines thanks to her unconventional parenting style. “I’m naked around my kids. I don’t parade, but they’ll come in and talk to me in the shower… I embrace it and teach them not to be ashamed of their bodies in general, no matter what they look like,” Ali shared.
“I grew up in a household where we didn’t talk about anything like that. As I got older, I thought, ‘I don’t think there’s anything wrong with this.’ All of that repressed WASPy stuff doesn’t work for me.”
