CNN’s very own Abby Phillip, age 32, first gained prominence for her coverage of the Trump administration for The Washington Post, before moving her services to CNN in 2017.
In addition to being one of the more popular voices of her generation, she was once considered to be one of the most sought-after bachelorettes in the journalism scene.
All that changed once she found the man of her dreams, essentially breaking the hearts of her admirers.
Her fans had to bear the excruciating pain of seeing her parade first her fiance and then her husband all through her Instagram. To add insult to their injury - albeit unknowingly - she even put out pictures from her honeymoon!

On 27 December 2016 - while the world was celebrating Christmas - Abby and her husband, Marcus, were already making plans for their wedding after announcing that they were engaged-to-be married via Instagram.
The post of Abby and her husband, Marcus, dressed in festive attire, was accompanied by a long caption that read:
"We're engaged!! Yesterday was the best day. Our tiny apartment was full of so much love, joy, and laughter. I'm so happy that my family and Marcus's mom were all able to be with us this Christmas. And I can't wait to spend the rest of my life with my love! "
Abby and her husband, Marcus Richardson, age 37 - who also goes by the moniker gizmont on Instagram - have quite a history. Soon after meeting at a party thrown by a mutual friend in 2011, they began dating each other.
Her husband, Marcus, is currently employed as a managing director at the nVisium in Herndon, Va. -- a company specializing in web and mobile applications security.
At the time of their wedding, they had known each other for almost seven years. The smitten couple had married in May of 2018. Abby later shared the news using her Instagram handle by posting a wedding photo with her husband.

Following their wedding, the newly married duo had decided on Vietnam as their honeymoon destination.
While in Vietnam, Abby and Marcus had stayed at the luxurious Pao’s Sapa Leisure hotel. The CNN correspondent even posted the honeymoon picture of her and her husband from the hotel.
Abby's Days In Quarantine
The pandemic has created such a situation that one has to maintain a distance even with their loved ones. Even on special occasions like birthday, Abby could not call upon her parents for dinner because of the threatening virus. She spent all day with her husband and their dog, Booker T. They had a low-key birthday without any celebrations this year. But that's ok for Abby as she likes to keep things to herself. And after a five-day-long election process, she deserves to give time to herself.
She cooks and bakes in her spare time. Taking care of plants and gardening is her other hobby. It sounds boring, but she just loves household activities. Besides this, she is into book reading. Currently, she is reading Isabel Wilkerson's Castle, and she is a role model for her. Growing up, she was a huge fan of Gwen Ifill, who she considers as her idol.

Marcus isn’t the only recipient of Abby’s love on social media platforms. Abby, age 32, flaunts her parents and sisters as well, albeit on occasions.
She has made a point to wish her parents - father, to be more specific - on special occasions every year. Lucky for her, both father’s day and her mother’s birthday fall on the same day, which has made June 19th an event for her.
