Jesse Palmer recently confirmed that his long-time girlfriend Emely Fardo in private about a year ago. However, the idea of a low-key wedding wasn’t the initial plan of the couple.
“We had originally planned a wedding in Provence, France, for summer 2020, which was postponed until summer of 2021 due to the pandemic, but we didn’t want to wait any longer,” the former NFL player 43-year-old told DailyGossip exclusively on the 8th of October, on a Friday. “So, we had a small, private and intimate ceremony with close friends who lived in New York City.”
This month, the sport announcer announced that the couple, he and Fardo 35 years old got married in June 2020, with an intimate group of friends. The couple was planning to hold a lavish ceremony in 2021 however, they decided to postpone the ceremony because of COVID-19’s travel restrictions. This caused a problem to invite Fardo’s Brazilian family members to be able to join them to celebrate the wedding.

“We are hopeful that we can have a symbolic ceremony with our parents and families present sometime in 2022,” said the official.
The month before, ABC confirmed that the Canada native will host season 26 of The Bachelor after longtime host Chris Harrison permanently exited the franchise in June.
“For more than 20 years, The Bachelor has brought the world dozens of unforgettable love stories, including at one time, my own,” Palmer stated to Us on the show in an interview made at the time. “Falling in love is one of life’s greatest gifts, and I am humbled by the opportunity to return to the show as host this season to offer the newest Bachelor advice gained from firsthand experience and I am grateful to play a small part in his journey.”
Although that the ESPN analyst is currently happy to be married Fardo however, he was an Bachelor himself, and served as the show’s main character in season five. He selected Jessica Bowlin as his winner and the pair fell out shortly after the show’s final episode.
According to Palmer his wife is an avid fan of the Bachelor series, and she’ll accompany him on certain parts of this season. “She’s watched everything from the past several years,” Palmer said to Us in a statement, noting that she’s never seen the episodes that air in 2004.
However, she did discover that he was the Bachelor when strangers came to him to request roses as they went out on their first dating dates around New York City.
In terms of what his life has been like since he walked down the aisle, Palmer says that not much has changed. “I continue to wake up every morning with the woman of my dreams,” Palmer said. “The biggest difference is wearing a ring, but I’m getting used to it — and loving it!”
Season 18 on The Bachelorette with cohosts Tayshia Adams and Kaitlyn Bristowe airs on ABC on Tuesday on October 19 starting at 8:30 p.m. ET. The 26th season of The Bachelor is expected to begin in January 2022.
