Lori Loughlin and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli, will always have their family. The former Fuller House star and the famous fashion designer have been together for years and share their two daughters, Olivia Jade Giannulli and Isabella Rose Giannulli.
Lori and Mossimo’s love story first began in the mid-1990’s. According to the Hollywood Reporter, the two met at a fancy Los Angeles restaurant in 1995. It wasn’t long before they solidified their status as a couple when Lori and Mossimo eloped in Newport Beach two years later in November 1997.
The When Calls the Heart alum and the Mossimo clothing brand owner didn’t wait long to have kids. Less than a year after exchanging vows, Lori gave birth to the pair’s eldest daughter, Isabella, who also goes by Bella. Their second child came along the following year when daughter Olivia was born in 1999. Mossimo is also the dad of son Gianni from a previous relationship, though there is not much known about him.
As Bella and Olivia grew up, fans often caught glimpses of the famous family as they attended red carpet events with their mom and dad. The two beauties have even followed in their mom and dad’s footsteps by becoming stars on social media.
However, Lori and Mossimo were sentenced to time in prison for their involvement in the college admissions scandal in August 2020. The judge accepted the Hallmark actress’ plea deal, which requires a two-month prison sentence, two years of supervised release, 100 hours of community service and $150,000 fine. As for Mossimo, he was ordered to serve five months in prison, two years of supervised release, 250 community hours and $250,000 fine.
The couple were first indicted in March 2019 for their part in the nationwide college scam. The two were arrested for “agree[ing] to pay bribes totaling $500,000 in exchange for having their two daughters designated as recruits to the University of Southern California crew team” even though neither of their kids participated in the sport.
Although Lori and Mossimo initially pleaded not guilty to “conspiracy to commit mail fraud and honest services mail fraud” in April 2019, they accepted a plea deal in May 2020 after receiving more charges for conspiring to commit federal program bribery in October 2019.
Despite their family’s legal issues, Lori and Mossimo’s kids are doing their best to remain positive. Earlier in the year, Us Weekly reported the pair’s youngest daughter, Olivia, is hoping to “move forward from this whole ordeal.”
“Olivia has been getting more and more comfortable with going out and putting herself out there,” a source told the outlet. “She feels like she spent time away from being in the limelight for a long time and now she’s ready to get back out there. She wants to be back in her normal routine of hanging out with friends and doing things she enjoys. She’s extremely pleasant, polite and sweet to new people she meets and definitely wants to make a good impression on them.”
