“It’s his first child, and he also thought he would never be a dad,” Tamron gushed about the producer in an interview with People. Now that the former Today cohost and Steven are first-time parents, they couldn’t ask for anything more. Ever since Tamron left NBC and got her own show at ABC, things have been looking up for the journalist and she wouldn’t want to have it any other way!
Scroll below to learn five fun facts about Tamron’s hunky husband!
He’s a big name producer
If you don’t know who Tamron’s husband is then you better ask somebody! According to Good Housekeeping, Steven has worked with American Idol‘s Season 3 winner, Fantasia Barrino, the late comedian Bernie Mac and a lot more stars in the entertainment industry. He’s also produced many well-known films such as Guess Who starring Ashton Kutcher in 2005 and Goodnight, Joseph Parker in 2004.
Tamron has spent more time with Steven than with any of her former flames.
While speaking to People, she gushed about the close bond that she and her husband have and said he’s the only man she’s ever dated whose been around her all the time. “Steven was my first and only boyfriend who did not have to turn on the TV to see me, and I think that’s been important,” Tamron said.
Steven is a very shy guy
When the film producer first met the TV personality, he didn’t make it very apparent that he was into her. It wasn’t until they started dating that Tamron realized that she was the biggest part of his life.
“I’ve known him for many years. We would run into each other, and he’s shy, so I wasn’t clear that he was hitting on me exactly. I thought he was just being friendly,” the mom-of-one recalled. “When we finally started dating, I could see him clearly. When I was working, given the competitive environment I was in, you don’t always see people for who they are. Once I left, I started to have better conversations. You’re more present, and you’re not looking at your phone, not checking your email. The fear factor of ‘What’s going on with my spot? Am I going to keep this job?’ fell away, and I could really see Steven.”
Their relationship wasn’t secretive, it was just private
Many fans believe that Tamron tried to hide her relationship with Steven from the public, but that’s actually not true. According to her, they went everywhere together. Apparently, the paparazzi just missed those moments because she never wanted to talk about him on TV.
“I’d never talked about my personal life on TV. I always thought, ‘One day I’ll get married, and I don’t want my husband to have to look at old episodes of me gushing over the last guy,'” she explained. “So I’ve always been very cautious. I think today, people mistake privacy for secrecy. People say he’s my ‘secret husband.’ But we were going everywhere together; it was just a private thing I needed to protect.”
Steven makes Tamron a better person
“I’m constantly amazed by how lucky I am,” Steven gushed about his wife to People. “Tamron is one of the most authentic, loving, honest, caring people I’ve ever known.” Plus, the new ABC star feels the exact same way.
“This was my deepest, greatest love,” she said about her relationship with Steven, and he added, “My favorite part of marriage and fatherhood so far is realizing every day I am exactly where I was always meant to be — with my family. I am home.”
