Lara Spencer, a mother of two children, has reportedly been in a relationship with Wall Street financier, Rick McVey since she got divorced with her husband of 15 years, David Haffenreffer in 2015.

[Update]: Lara Spencer is married to boyfriend, Rick McVey!

Lara and David’s divorce was a cordial decision

Lara and David, who were recognized as one of the enduring celebrity couples, shocked people with the news of their divorce in 2015. The GMA co-anchor and CNN reporter-turned-real-estate-broker had exchanged wedding vows in an Episcopal ceremony at St. Andrew’s Dune Church on September 30, 2000. During that time, she was a reporter for WABC-TV and Haffenreffer was a contributor to CNN morning show Ahead of Curve.

The parents of two had an agreeable split, and their divorce was finalized in June 2015.  On that note, the couple said in a joint statement, “After a lot of thought, care, and consideration, we have decided to end our marriage. It’s a sad decision that didn’t come easily, especially because we respect and love each other and our children. They remain our top priority. We will raise them and care for them together.”

Reportedly, Lara’s busy schedules and workaholic attitude was a reason behind their split. The news of their separation became public three months after their divorce. 

They have remained friends for the sake of their children: a January 22, 2002, born son named Duff Haffenreffer and October 5, 2004, born daughter named Katharine Paige Haffenreffer.

She was seen laying her hands on his chest and stomach, and they took multiple breaks from the meal to kiss each other. They were seen walking off hand-in-hand after their meal. The next day, sources learned that he was none other than multi-millionaire Wall Street financier Rick McVey, who chairs an online bond trading company named Marketaxess Holding Inc.

Neither of them has commented on their relationship status. But a recent picture of the couple in front of the Eiffel Tower, Paris on Lara’s Instagram, has assured us that they are together.
