Leah Remini and Husband Angelo Pagan Married in July 2003
The King of Queens star Remini tied the knot with Angelo Pagan on 19th July 2003. Their ceremony held at the Four Seasons Hotel in Las Vegas. The wedding was conducted by a minister from Remini’s former Scientology center. The couple walked down the aisle in front of 125 guests.
Remini’s King co-star Kevin James told, “It was outdoors at night and still 110°”, the actor added laughing, “The best part was toweling off.” Talking more about the 15-minute service, King producer Rob Schiller said, “The words were very funny, very heart-felt. It brought tears to everybody’s eyes.”
It is really hard to maintain both professional and personal life hand in hand for years, but the couple is still together with no signs of conflict in their years-long marriage.
When did they first meet? Their engagement
Remini came across her then future-husband Pagan at El Floridita, a Cuban restaurant and nightclub in 1996. Leah stated it was love at first sight for her love. Recalling their first meeting, the actress told RuPaul Show,
“I saw him across [the room and] I was like, ‘Damn! What time do you get off?”
Remini added with a laugh,
I was like everything wrong. Everything that you shouldn’t do as a girl is ask a guy when he gets off work, hit it real quick and there was a lot of that. It was all bad looks.
The couple got engaged in late 2002. Pagan popped the question in a candle-lit Los Angeles restaurant.
The couple is also a proud parent of a daughter
Leah and hubby Angelo welcomed their only daughter, Sofia Bella Pagan on 16th June 2004. The actress told it wasn’t hard to get pregnant with her first child after a four-month of their marriage.
In 2015, Sofia was then,11, baptized in the Catholic Church. On 5th September, Remini shared a photo from her daughter’s baptism with the caption,
“A very special day for our little girl and her Godparents @crabichuk wanted to share with all of you #baptism #catholic #newbeginnings”
