How Old Is Lauren Simonetti?

Lauren Simonetti is currently 43 years old. She was born on 11th of April 1981, in Manhattan, New York, United States to her parents, Raymond “Ray” Simonetti and his wife, Janet Simonetti. She was also raised in New York in a stable family alongside her two younger siblings, Matthew “Matt” Simonetti and Craig Simonetti who are identical twins.

Of American nationality, Lauren’s ethnicity on her mother’s side is not known, but on her father’s side, she is Italian. Although she has only gone to Italy a couple of times both as a kid and as an adult and her father was born in the United States, she is still fascinated by the Italian culture which she also identifies with.

As a child growing up, she would beg her Noni to make different Italian dishes for her, including pasta. As an adult, she makes use of her mother’s recipe to make Italian food and she also frequents Italian restaurants.

Her parents had her almost two years after they got married in 1979 and since then, the couple has been together. By the time Lauren and her siblings arrived, her parents were already well-to-do.

A better part of her childhood interests as well as her earliest educational pursuits have not been made known, but we know she got her high school education from St. Joseph by the Sea School in New York. From there, she moved to George Washington University, where she was awarded the institution’s highest honors as she graduated with a summa cum laude in English. While there, she won a presidential scholarship as a result of which she traveled around the world for a semester. She went to 10 countries where she studied at the time.

She furthered at Columbia University where she got a Master’s degree. She studied English and comparative literature while at Columbia.

Who Are Lauren Simonetti’s Parents?

The parents of Lauren are Raymond Simonetti and Janet Simonetti. Her father was born and brought up in the United States and is a native of Staten Island, New York, although he has roots that are traced back to Italy. He got his education from Port Richmond High School.

Ray also attended the Fashion Institute of Technology in Manhattan, and then Long Island University. A respected individual in the furniture business in New York, Laure’s dad began his career after he left the Army, having fought during the Vietnam War. It was easy for him to establish himself in his chosen business because his father (Lauren’s grandfather), Joe, was in the furniture business also.

Ray bought the Broyhill Furniture line in 1973, almost 8 years before he had his daughter. The business has become established in different parts of the United States, including New York and New Jersey. In 2008, he was awarded the Jerry Gans Memorial Award for his contribution to the furnishing business by the Greater New York Home Furnishings Association. Ray became the vice president of Grako International Modern in 2017.

Lauren’s mother, Janet Simonetti has a job that is very far from the world of business. In the past, it was made known that she worked as a public elementary school teacher. However, it is not clear if she is still in the field.

Apart from her parents, her two brothers are also doing well for themselves. Her brother, Craig Simonetti has chosen the path of education like his mom as he is a teacher, while Matthew Simonetti has a path that is even more different. His last known work was with Philadelphia Pirates where he served as a member of the team’s scouting department.

Is Lauren Simonetti Still Married?

As regards her love life, Lauren Simonetti is currently a happily married woman. In 2011, she married the love of her life, Mark Cubrilo. Lauren and Mark worked with Fox Business News, where they first met and began dating in 2008. Three years later, in April 2011, Mark proposed.

It only took them a few months after their engagement before they got married in October of the same year. The ceremony took place at the Crystal Plaza in Livingstone, New Jersey and it was attended by close friends, family members, and colleagues of the couple.

While Lauren is the most famous of the pair, Mark has also achieved significantly much for himself. He was born to his parents, Loreta and Rayco Cubrilo, in Fort Lee, New Jersey which was also where he was brought up together with his brother, Ted Cubrilo. Lauren Simonetti’s husband attended Cliffside Park (N.J.) High School before later taking a job with Fox.

After their wedding ceremony, the couple had a safari honeymoon in Tanzania and Zanzibar, Africa, and after they returned, they made their home in Manhattan. 12 years later, they are still married and happy. However, Mark Cubrilo has always maintained a very private life and does not have a strong presence on social media. In fact, he has only appeared a few times on his wife’s social media pages.

The marriage between Lauren and her husband is blessed with three amazing kids; two daughters and a son. Their names are Rae Vivian, Mark Jameson, and Celia Monroe.

Rae Vivian is the oldest of Simonetti’s children. She was born in October 2015. Lauren took to her Instagram in July of that year to announce that she was expecting her baby in 10 weeks and then in October, she announced that her baby had arrived and she was already a week old. Currently, Laurent’s first child is 8 years old.

The second child of Lauren and Mark is Mark Jameson Cubrilo who was born three years after his sister on April 11, 2018, and is now 6 years old. The Fox Business News anchor announced that she was expecting her second child with an Instagram photo in April 2018. The announcement of the birth of Mark was done in a much bigger way than that of his older sister as it was done live on Fox Business News when it was made known that Lauren had delivered a boy whose weight was 7 pounds and 11 ounces. His nickname was said to be MJ.

Celia Monroe Cubrilo is the youngest member of the family. Lauren was tight-lipped as regards the birth of her third child. She did not make any announcement on the pregnancy or even the birth of the baby until it was six weeks old. The last member of the family was born in February 2021 and is now 3 years old.

For the most part, Lauren and her husband have kept a better part of information about their kids private, including their education, although we believe they are still in elementary school. In spite of her very busy schedule, she has always created enough time for her kids.

She Has Enjoyed A Great Career As A Media Person

After her education, Lauren went ahead to have a great career in broadcast journalism. She gained fame as a news anchor, field producer, and reporter for Fox Business News. She was previously with Fox 5 New York where she worked as a financial reporter on its morning show, Good Day New York. 

Before she joined Fox, Lauren Simonetti worked for a while with CNN and CNN International where freelanced as an associate producer. During her 2-year stay with the news network, she wrote programs and was part of Lou Dobbs Tonight as a production assistant. In addition to that, the Italian-American broadcaster was the producer for the New York Stock Exchange (NYSE) and she was in charge of covering different economic events.

It was from here that she joined Fox Business News in 2007. She started as a field producer and then in 2011, she rose to become a reporter. Some of her most known involvement with Fox was in the coverage of the financial crisis of 2008 and the Gulf oil Spill. She also covered the biggest bankruptcy ever in U.S. history which gulped in over $600 billion and was tagged Bankruptcy of Lehman Brothers, as well as many other things.

Thanks to all her contributions as a media person as well as to the Italian community, Lauren was recognized by the NYPD Columbia Association in 2014. The organization celebrated her with the Italian-American Achievement Award.
