People never know when life gives them a perfect wedding. For an example, let’s just talk about Rebecca Budig today. Her life is what we normally call a perfectly balanced family life with her husband and daughter but she had her share of complication in her life before she met her husband.  Without any further delay, let’s know about it all.

Personal Life: Engagement, Married, and Husband?

The 43 years old actress Rebecca Budig is currently married to Michael Benson who happens to be an artist, filmmaker, and television marketing executive. The couple first got engaged on Christmas of 2010. In an exclusive talk, Rebecca said,

“We don’t have any wedding plans yet. He’s an amazing man and we’re just really happy.”

After 2 years of their engagement, the couple swapped their vows and got married in 2012. Later on May 1, 2014, Rebecca broke the news of expecting a baby with Micheal. In fact, she revealed that she was already 5 months pregnant on ‘The Better Show’. She said,

"I am five months pregnant. There have been a couple of Facebook followers that have guessed that, but I had a lot of tests and things to do and I wanted to make sure it was all okay before I said, ‘I’m pregnant!'."

Upon being asked about how she was feeling being pregnant for the first time by co-host JD Roberto, she said,

“I’m nervous. I’m really scared. I don’t think there’s a perfect parent and you don’t know what you’re going to get. I’m a lot more nervous than I thought I’d be.”

Four months later, on September 8, 2014, Rebecca and Michael welcomed little miss Benson into the world. Her husband took the news to his Instagram the other day revealing their daughter’s name to be Charlotte Jo Benson.


Welcome to the world, Charlotte Jo Benson. Mom and daughter are doing great!

Her Past Married Life and Reason for Divorce!

However, her life was not this perfect before. Before she met her husband and welcomed her daughter, she was in two different relationships.

In the year 2000, Rebecca got married to Dr. Daniel Geller but the marriage did not last long and the couple separated in less than a year.

After that, about a year later, Rebecca got married to The Bachelor star Bob Guiney whom she met while hosting The Bachelor Show. They got married in July of 2004 but later split after about five years citing irreconcilable differences. As Rebecca filed the divorce, her ex-husband was denied with spousal support from the Los Angeles Superior Court.

In their five years of marriage, the couple did not produce any kids nor did Rebecca get pregnant.

Rebecca Budig who has been currently working on a TV series called ‘General Hospital’ has decided to keep the details about her incomes closed to herself.  The actress has not disclosed her salary per year nor has she talked about how much is her net worth.

As she has been living a happy life with her husband and her little daughter, she is also concentrating on her career as an actor and who knows, maybe her daughter will soon grow to become a beautiful actress as well.
