Bobby Flay got married in 2003 to his high school sweetheart, Deena Kastor. His previous marriage was annulled because he wasn’t legally old enough at nineteen years old when they wed in 1991 (he turned twenty-one during their divorce). He has never remarried since then but rumors persist. Bobby Flay has two children from his first marriage to Deena Kastor. They have two sons together: Dax and Kylie Flay.

The most recent rumor was when he got into a heated argument with Giada de Laurentiis on “Iron Chef America” (Season 13) over whether risotto can be made without cream, which led some people to believe maybe that’s why he is not married.

Are Bobby Flay And Giada De Laurenitis Dating?

There is no information if they are dating or not but there are plenty of rumors spreading of them being in a relationship after they were seen in 2015 having a romantic dinner date and they were also seen together when they traveled to Italy.

Giada was married to Todd Thompson when the rumors of Bobby and her being in a relationship started spreading and Giada was not only linked with Bobby but rumors had that she cheated her husband and had an affair with Matt Lauer and John Mayer before she was linked with Bobby.

But she later denied having an affair with Matt and John, she said to Redbook that she was shocked after she heard about John Mayer and she added that she had not had any contact with John for years before they were linked together.

And as mentioned people have always been suspicious about Bobby and Giada but she also denied the rumors of them having an affair or being in a relationship, she said that Bobby is just her friend and they have been friends for many years now and she said that they never had an affair before.

But after she divorced her husband, she and Bobby were seen together at Emilio’s Ballato having a dinner date and holding each other’s hands and they also seemed really close and their dinner date was also confirmed by a staff member.

We can also see that Bobby and Giada are now traveling and filming together and even though they have not said anything or been denying their relationship we can say that they might as well be in a relationship who knows.
