Surrounded by close friends and family, the wedding was "a straight out of fairy tale event". Filled with beachy blue tables and tulips all around, the bride and the groom guaranteed that their guests had the time of their life with good food and a pleasant atmosphere.
All the relationship goes through highs and lows. In one of the rare occasion, Steve shared a personal low in his relationship, through a Tweet back on April 7, 2013, as his wife unfollowed him on Twitter. The first reason being too many tweets about NHL Barry Melrose and even shared his fear in the hashtag "#couldablockedme."
Talking about Steve's wife Ani, she works as a Deputy General Counsel for Caritas Christi. Previously, she was an attorney for McDermott Will and Emery and Greenberg Traurig. Ani graduated with a degree in law from the University of Florida- Fredric G. Levin College of Law in 2001.
Married for more than eight years, Steve and Ani are one of the television’s most secret couple. They are very private when it comes to sharing their personal stories. There is no news of any brawl between the couple till date, and it seems that they are happily married with no signs of divorce.

Steve Levy’s Professional Life:
Steve Levy is a lover of sports. He initially wanted to live his life, dedicating it to sports playing his heart out. However, as he was not so athletic, he figured it’s best for him to embrace the other alternative of becoming a sports journalist. He revealed this in an interview with Poststar.com
"No. I was super mediocre at everything. I played everything, and for some reason I always played the leadership position. I was the quarterback, I was the shortstop, I was the center in hockey, and yet I wasn't any good at any of those things.
It was in college. I wasn't one of those kids who sits with a tape recorder in front of the TV. I went to college, SUNY-Oswego, and they had a really good Division III hockey team. And they had a television station there and, supposedly, I was the first freshman who did sports on TV, blah, blah, blah, and I thought maybe I'm good at this thing, ya know, maybe there's something to this. It was a campus TV station, all student run, and I had a blast with that."
He began his career only after graduation. He commenced his media journey by working for WFAN. He later moved to ESPN where he saw his dreams coming true. Since joining ESPN in 1989, he has become a regular Sports Center host. He has also covered different games and highlights covering NHL, College Football Coverage, and as a fill-in commentator for Wednesday Night Baseball.
