In the private life of Emily Compagno

From the football field to Fox News, Emily Compagno has seen and experienced it all. But while the host is on TV every day and viewers feel like they really know the journalist, Compagno actually leads a personal life — and everyone wants to know more about the TV personality.

Let’s face it, Compagno was born to be on TV — and especially Fox News. Before starting her career, Compagno received her degree in Political Science from the University of Washington. Compagno put her political science degree to the test and then attended the University of San Francisco School of Law, per The US Sun. After graduating from law school in 2006, Compagno chose to stay in San Francisco to become a criminal defense attorney while also joining the NFL Oakland Raiders’ cheer team, the Raiderettes, she told SF Gate.

And while there’s a lot to juggle being an attorney and an NFL cheerleader, Compagno has been just as successful on the field as she is off, though she eventually left the team to focus on her career as an aspiring attorney. But it seems that decision has paid off, as by 2018 her background as a lawyer and her ability to shine in the spotlight came together when she was asked to join Fox News as a legal analyst, which Compagno called a “natural” fit TheWrap. Now that Compagno is a mainstay on the TV screen, many want to know more about their favorite Fox News correspondent.

What do we know about Emily Compagno’s personal life?

For a journalist who appears on television five days a week, Emily Compagno has become a pro at keeping her personal life private. Maybe it’s her legal background, or maybe it’s because she has over 300,000 followers on social media, but one thing’s for sure — Compagno doesn’t share details about her life or her husband — despite sporting a stone on her left finger .

But here’s what we do know. The Fox News personality is married to Peter Riley, a well-known real estate agent and broker in Vancouver, Washington at Berkshire Hathaway Home Service Northwest Real Estate. Although Riley may have a Pacific Northwest work permit, we can infer that the real estate agent is either from California or has roots in the Golden State, since he and Compagno met when they were teenagers — with Compagno born and raised in California.

According to The US Sun, Riley and Compagno knew each other from a young age, but it wasn’t until they accidentally saw each other on a Seattle sidewalk years later that they got back together. From then on it was just love at first sight. Yet when these two first started dating, they certainly didn’t know what was to come in their relationship — fame, success, notoriety, or Fox News — so are these two still together?

Are Emily Compagno and Peter Riley still married?

Love surely conquers all — at least for Emily Compagno and Peter Riley, because after reconnecting on a Seattle sidewalk, Compagno and Riley are the knot tied in 2017, per The US Sun.

As far as we know, Compagno and Riley exchanged vows during a private ceremony in Italy at Hotel Villa Cimbrone on the Amalfi Coast. And when we say private ceremony, we mean it. According to sources, neither Compagno nor Riley had any guests at the wedding — in fact, it was just them and their two photographers. But it seems like they took their vows to heart, because after these two agreed to be together for better or for worse, a part came true when Compagno was picked up by Fox News a year into their marriage.

But since Compagno has starred on Fox News, things have gone even quieter about her relationship with Riley. While both Compagno and Riley appear to have been born and raised in west coasts, after Compagno joined Fox News in 2018, she appears to have moved to New York City, but it’s unclear if Riley did as well. And has a look at Compagnos Instagram left many fans with questionsbecause there is no sign of Riley or a Ring on a specific hand for Compagno. But whether these two called it quits or simply chose to keep their relationship quiet — we’ll hope it’s the latter rather than the former.
