Bobby Flay’s Ex-Wife’s Wiki
The bio of the former wife of Bobby Flay reveals her birthplace as the USA in 1964. A graduate from ST. Michael college, Kate had early ambitions of becoming a model. However, she did an actress and was involved in movies such as Blaze alongside Chris Hemsworth.
Connelly, a mother of an eight-year-old son from her first marriage, came into the limelight only after she started going out with the celebrity chef, Bobby Flay. Before meeting him, Kate was working at a Food Network Talk Show. It was in fact in this very show, the duo met each other for the first time after Bobby had guest starred in Kate’s show in January 1994.
Bobby, already divorced with his then ex-wife Debra Ponzek, knew his way around women. In an interview given to Famousfix in 1995, Connelly talks about her first date with Bobby.
“I got home four and a half hours later. I’ve never had such a good time in my life on a date, ever, ever, ever. I don’t remember what I ate. There was always something to talk about. He was funny. It was the easiest thing in the world.”
The couple, after going out for a year or so, got married to each other on 1 October 1995. They soon had a daughter added to their marriage in the form of Sophie, born on April 16, 1996.

However, happiness soon cut short after three years of marriage for the couple, as they were involved in a divorce in 1998. The couple then shared the custody of their daughter Sophie.
