One of the prominent on-air personalities Erin Burnett has been leading a blissful married life with her managing-director-husband. The two are together for over one and a half-decade and they are still in love with each other as they used to at the beginning.
What’s the secret to their endearing relationship? Here is the adorable love story of the iconic couple and some tidbits about their kids and other hidden truths!
Erin Burnett’s married life with Her husband David Rubulotta: How it all began?
Burnett tied the knot with David Rubulotta in late December 2012. Their wedding took place at New York City Hall which was officiated by a justice of the peace. The two exchanged their vows in front of their families and friends.
The bride opted for a red dress for her marriage and changed into a gold gown made by Carmen Marc Valvo couture for the reception at Atlantic Grill in New York City. Erin planned the party all by herself and even hired a classical guitarist to play Christmas carols.
The journalist, while talking about the timing of their wedding, told People Magazine,
“Christmas is our favorite time of year. We thought it would be the perfect time to get married.”
He further added,
“I was overflowing with joy to have those I love together”
The two shares the same philosophy towards life and that is probably the thing that played a major role in their enduring married life.
Burnett and Rubulotta first met on a blind date
Erin met her then future-spouse David on a blind date back in 2004. While recalling the moment Burnett revealed when she walked into the restaurant for the date and saw Rubulotta, she subconsciously thought, ” I hope that’s him.” And to her luck, it was him.
Back then, Erin was a stock editor for Bloomberg which was also her first job in the media. She previously worked as a vice president of the digital media group, CitiMedia.
Before making her transition into journalism, Burnett also worked as a financial analyst for Goldman Sachs, an investment banking company.

News of her engagement first came out when she organized a launch party promoting a new CNN show Erin Burnett OutFront in September of the year. At the event held in the Museum of Arts and Design in New York, Erin’s ring finger had a visible engagement ring.
The anchor also walked the red carpet flashing a diamond ring along with her fiancee. Guests included leading media figures like Piers Morgan, Anderson Cooper, Jeffrey Toobin, Joy Behar, Ali Velshi, Ken Jautz, and Mark Whitaker attended the event.
How many children do Erin and David share?

Upon the arrival of her first bundle of joy, the host told People,

Their daughter Colby Isabelle Burnett Rubulotta was born in July 2015. In Feb of the year, the couple had announced they were expanding their brood once again, and indeed they did. Erin posted the first photo of their baby girl on Twitter on 30th July 2015.
