Martha Raddatz Bio: ABC Reporter's Family Detail - Married Life To Religion
An American reporter, Martha Raddatz has done it all from getting into the field in Afganistan to hosting the Presidential debate. She has been around for a decade covering national security, foreign policies, and political news.
Martha, who has reported from safe zones like the Pentagon to conflict inflicted areas around the world, possesses not only a bright career but also a loving family of her own. Thanks to her reporting job, Martha did not have a stable relationship in the past. But despite the ups, downs and the broken affairs, the Idaho native has been finally blessed with a family.
It turns out that she had been married twice before, but both of them ended in divorces only to find an everlasting love with her current husband. Here is what her bio reveals of her past relationships and the one she currently shares with her husband.
Married Twice Before, Divorced On Both Occasions
The ABC News' Chief Global Affairs Correspondent exchanged the wedding vows with two of her former husbands but on both occasions couldn't succeed to maintain a prosperous marriage, causing her to divorce both of her ex-partners.
Martha, who has not revealed her inclination towards a political party, previously shared the marital bond with Ben Bradlee Jr. It is not known when the pair tied the wedding knot but the duo shares a child together. Martha's relationship with Ben blessed her with their firstborn, Greta Bradlee Williams.
After the birth of Greta, Martha and Ben parted ways as they ended their vows with a divorce. Being a single mom, Martha raised her daughter by herself while also finding her way into the male-dominated society of political reporting.
Despite the end of the marriage, the reporter, who has an estimated salary of $106,562, did not give up her faith on the sacred bond and gave it another try while she tied the wedding knot with a Jewish lawyer and businessman named Julius Genachowski. The couple was pronounced husband and wife back in 1991 in a grand wedding ceremony which was even attended by Barack Obama.
