Isha Sesay’s Wedding and Her Husband?

As we discussed above, Isha Sesay is a married woman now. She is married to the executive editor of CNN International, Leif Coorlim, @leifcoorlim. The couple got engaged on January 5, 2013, got married on August 17 of the same year, i.e., 2013 in Atlanta, Georgia.

The couples exchanged their vows in Mandarin Oriental Hotel. The wedding ceremony was taking place in the English garden but later was moved indoors after Jen Delgado, who is a CNN meteorologist, forecasted an inclement weather.

In an exclusive speak with the PEOPLE, Isha talked about how she felt about the wedding and her boyfriend who was about to be upgraded to a husband. She said,

"Our day exceeded my wildest dreams, it was magical. When I saw Leif standing at the end of the aisle, I felt as if my heart would explode. I married the man of my dreams in front of the people we care about the most. And then we partied the night away."

Congratulations on their Wedding:

However, the husband and wife decided not to talk anything about their honeymoon plan afterward. We guess, they wanted to keep this piece of information a secret from the media. So, the couples are now married for almost three years now.

Is She Pregnant Now?

Till this moment, none of other sources has claimed that she is or was pregnant. This is the same with her photos as she looks just like the same as before with no change or sighting of any significant curves in her body that could be news about her being pregnant.

After spending about three years together, the couples are still going steady, and no rumors or news are available till now about the couple likely to go through the process of divorce. We wish them a happy married life ahead in their upcoming years.

While in the process of knowing her more closely, we came across her interview with the Nigerian former president Goodluck Jonathan which in many terms was disrespectful. She was repeatedly interrupting while he was about to speak of drop his opinion on a certain question. Here, take a look at the video itself.
