In October 2017, Noelle filed for divorce following Jesse’s clandestine affair. Jesse himself reported his affair with Emma DiGiovine to Fox management and she was transferred to another talk show titled The Ingraham Angle, in accordance with Fox’s policy on such occurrences. Emma later left the news channel in the spring of 2018.

Noelle and Jesse settled their divorce out of court, however, Noelle filed a motion seeking that her ex-husband Jesse pay her legal fees. The details of their settlement aren’t known, though it is known that the girls got to stay with their mom. After her divorce proceedings were finalized in 2019, Noelle Inguagiato won custody of her daughters and relocated to Washington DC. Jesse and his current wife Emma Watters are however still active in the girls’ lives. In fact, the twins served as flower girls for their dad and Emma’s wedding.

While Noelle Has Remained Single, Jesse Remarried in 2019
