It’s hard if you are a couple who work the same job, even more so, if you are both journalists. On the job comments, may be taken more seriously in the household and political opinions might be a thing. But luckily for David Haffenreffer and Lara Spencer, things worked out for the best. While David worked for CNN, Lara is best known for being the co-anchor for ABC’s Good Morning America. Even though the latter’s fame exceeds the former by a mile, Lara and David have managed to make things work in their favor. Even though the pair’s union ultimately dissolved, it wasn’t due to work-related factors. In this article, we will take a closer look at the wiki-bio of Lara Spencer’s ex-husband David Haffenreffer.
David Haffenreffer was born on the 2nd of August 1967, in Rhode Island, USA. Born to Haffenreffer Sr. and Susan Haffenreffer, David is three of the children from his parents. He has two sisters Ashley Haffenreffer Wagstaff and Kristen Haffenreffer Moran. His father worked as the vice president of Fleet Investment Advisers based in Providence, whereas his mother, worked as a clinical social worker at the Bristol County Community Health Center. After graduating from a local high school in Rhode Island, David enrolled at St. Lawrence University. Interested in journalism from a young age, David wasted no time in jumping into his career of choice.
Following his graduation, David started working in broadcasting and production. His first job was as a video field producer for the GTE Corporation. A few years down the line, David moved to TV networks and served as the director and news anchor for the WSUB-AM Network. He got his big break in 2000 and was hired by CNN and CNNfn. David began working in a segment entitled Ahead of the Curve at the CNNfn. However, when CNNfn dissolved and CNN never revived the segment, David decided to quit his work in journalism and started working as a real estate agent. David currently owns the Connecticut based Greenwich Real Estate, which specializes in technology.
David was married to Lara Spencer for the longest time before the pair decided to call things off in 2015. The pair met during the 1990s through mutual friends. Given how the pair shared a lot of common circles, it was a wonder that they had not met up to that point. The pair began dating soon after and had a public wedding in 2000 at St. Andrew’s Dune Church, an Episcopal. The pair enjoyed a loving relationship for 15-years before deciding to call things off. In their time together, the pair became parents to two lovely kids. Their eldest son, Duff, was born in 2002 and was followed by a daughter, Kate, who was born in 2005. The pair called things off in 2015 but did not reveal much about the reasons for their divorce. The divorce statement read,
“After a lot of thought, care and consideration, we have decided to end our marriage. It’s a sad decision that did not come easily, especially because we respect and love each other and our children. They remain our top priority. We will raise them and care for them together.”
While Lara went on to marry American entrepreneur Richard McVey, David has remained single following the divorce.
