Who Is Robin Baumgarten’s Fiance and Who Was Her First Husband?

Robin Baumgarten’s fiance is a man she calls “Mr X.” The 60 year-old American news anchor working with WGN Chicago has moved on from her marriage with her first husband, Matt Piancente – who is the father of her two beautiful daughters. She waited for more than a decade and a half to find true love after her divorce.

Baumgarten has decided not to reveal the true identity of her mysterious lover Mr. X, but she revealed that they have been together for about 2 years now. She announced her engagement to Mr. X via an Instagram post in which she was holding his face, which was blocked by a smiling emoji, on June 25, 2022. She caption it, Mr. X is now Mr. Fiance and stated that she cannot wait for us all to meet him.

Who is Robin Baumgarten Engaged To?

The true identity of the individual who is Robin Baumgarten’s fiancee is really not known. Ever since the news of her relationship with her then-boyfriend broke out, she has always referred to him as “Mr. X”. Online sleuths have tried all they can to unravel the identity of Mr. X (her mysterious lover), but to date, no one has been able to unravel the identity of the mysterious man.

It is clear that Robin Baumgarten is not yet ready to reveal the real identity of her lover, perhaps to protect her lover or their relationship from the intense scrutiny and attention that revealing his identity brings, or maybe she even enjoys the aura of mystery created around him. Even when one of her WGN colleagues, Sports Anchor Pat Tomasulo, interviewed Mr. X, his face was not revealed, and his voice was digitally changed through the 5 minutes or thereabout interview.

Robin Baumgarten did reveal, when asked by her fellow WGN anchors, what made her believe that Mr. X was the one after she announced their engagement that apart from him really being a great guy, he has some other attributes that endeared him to her heart. Mr. X walked her to her car, which was parked some distance away on their first date. He also volunteered to drive her to get her Covid-19 vaccinations.

He always walks on the street side of the walkway when they are walking to protect her from dangerous drivers, and he always buys her bubble gums and blow pops – which she absolutely loves. And finally, he pops up when she is tending to her garden and helps her uproot those thorny weeds. It is clear to all that she is evidently very happy in her relationship, and one can only wish them happiness always.
