Ever since Gal Gadot burst onto our screens as Wonder Woman back in 2017, we've been in awe of her portrayal of the superhero—but do you ever wonder who her real-life hubby is? The film takes us back to the ‘80s, so we decided to take things back, although not quite as far, to the beginning of her real-life love story. In 2008, she married businessman and real estate mogul Yaron Varsano.
He has often been spotted by Gadot's side at glamourous events like the Golden Globes and red carpet premieres, but we hear very little about her husband. So we’ve rounded up six things you need to know about the man behind Wonder Woman. Read on for everything you need to know about Gal Gadot's husband, Yaron Varsano.
They Met at an Israeli Desert Party
Gadot told Glamour they met through mutual friends at a desert party, which really sounds more like a retreat. “It was all about yoga, chakras, and eating healthy—we didn't exactly find ourselves there, but we found each other,” she said.
He’s 10 Years Her Senior
Gadot alludes that he knew she was the “one” before her because he’s “older” and wiser. “He told me on our second date he was serious and wasn't going to wait more than two years to ask me to marry him,” she told Glamour. “Fast-forward two years; he proposed. We were married in 2008.”
They Celebrated Their 12th Wedding Anniversary in 2020
The two lovebirds tied the knot back in 2008, and celebrated their 12th anniversary in September of 2020. Gadot posted a sweet selfie to commemorate the special day.
“Happy anniversary @jaronvarsano you’re my one. My only. My everything..” she captioned the post. “12 years of marriage feels like a walk in the park with you. To many more to come. I’m yours forever”
He’s Very Supportive of Her Career
When Gadot started booking movies (she played Gisele in the Fast and Furious franchise before landing Wonder Woman) the two did a lot of traveling. Gadot said she became anxious about traveling once she had her first daughter, Alma, according to Glamour. But Varsano always encouraged her to continue her career.
“It was my husband who told me: ‘Gal, think about what kind of a role model you want to be. If you want to show Alma that she can follow her dreams, that's what you should do, and we will figure out the logistics,’” she told Glamour.
He’s an Israeli Businessman and Built a Hotel in Tel Aviv
He and his brother co-created and built the Varsano Hotel in Tel Aviv. According to Daily Mail, in 2015, they sold the hotel to Roman Abramovich, Russian businessman and owner of London’s Chelsea Football Club.
They Have Three Children Together
In 2011, Gadot gave birth to their daughter Alma, and in 2016 they announced they were expecting again. They welcomed another addition to their family with daughter Maya in March 2017. A few years later the couple took to Instagram to announce the birth of their third child, Daniella, in 2021.
“My sweet family...” she posted to Instagram. “I couldn’t be more grateful and happy (and tired 🤪) we are all so excited to welcome Daniella into our family. I’m sending all of you love and health."
