What is Rouba Saadeh’s Age Now?

Rouba Saadeh is currently 36 years old. She was born on April 15, 1987, in Beirut, Lebanon, to the family of Mr Saadeh and Maniola Saadeh. She grew up with (at least) two other siblings in the household – a sister named Abir Saadeh and a brother whose identity she has not revealed to date.

Rouba spent most of her early life and young adult years in Beirut, Lebanon. She received her very early education in the country up to college level equivalent in the United States. She obtained her first degree in Graphics Designing from Notre Dame de Jamhour before she obtained admission into the Lebanese-American University, where she studied Business Administration.

Rouba Saadeh’s Nationality

Rouba Saadeh was born in Beirut, Lebanon, which is a middle eastern country that is located on the Asian continent. There is a slight and unconfirmed possibility that either of her parents could be of Armenian descent since a good portion of those resident in Lebanon are of Armenian descent. So there might be a slight chance that she might have some Armenian blood in her.

Rouba Saadeh has not disclosed details about her parents and siblings to the general public, so we cannot be 100% sure what her ethnicity is. Some online sleuths uncovered her mother’s name, which is given as Maniola Saadeh, but they have not been able to find the real identity of her father to date, and that is the part that makes tracing her ethnicity a bit tricky.

Rouba Saaden was Michele Morrone’s Wife For Four Years

Rouba Saadeh met her ex-husband sometime in 2011 when Michele Morrone was visiting Lebanon, where she was based. They both shared mutual friends who introduced them to each other at some social meeting. Michele stated that he fell in love instantly with Rouba the moment he laid his eyes on her, describing her as the most beautiful person he had ever seen.

They dated for a few more years before they decided to tie the nuptial knots in 2014 in a civil and extremely private ceremony that took place in both Lebanon and Italy – where they are both from. They had their first son Marcus in 2014, just after their marriage – and he is currently 10 years old. Their second son Brando was born in 2017, and he is also currently 7 years old.

What Led to Rouba Saadeh’s Divorce?

Many people would still like to know what actually led to Rouba Saadeh’s divorce from her ex-husband Michele Morrone in 2018, but unfortunately, neither of the ex-couple has revealed to date what exactly led to their divorce, just 4 years after they tied the nuptial knots in a very private wedding ceremony in 2014.

For 2 or 3 years after Rouba divorced Michele, both of them never disclosed the motivations behind their decisions, and neither did they talk about each other after the divorce – except for the fact that Rouba did not delete all of her ex-husband’s pictures from her Social Media handles – especially her Instagram account.

However, in 2020, her ex-husband spoke about their divorce for the first time when he posted a cryptic message on his official Instagram handle. He disclosed that his divorce from his ex-wife Rouba Saadeh was very hard on him. The breakup almost put a stop to his struggling acting career, as he was about to call it quits with his career. It also left him deeply depressed and disillusioned with life.

At the time of their divorce, he revealed that he was left with no money and no roof over his head. He left his acting career pursuit and went to work as a gardener in a remote town before lady luck smiled on him again, and he got his breakout role in Netflix’s hit film 365 Days and its sequels. This led some of his fans to believe that financial stress must have been the reason for his divorce.

Is Rouba Saadeh Married Now or Still Single?

According to an interview that Rouba Saadeh granted to the PEOPLE magazine in 2022, she stated expressly in that interview that she is currently single after her divorce from her ex-husband Michele Morrone in 2018 and was solely focused on raising her two boys and her career right now. She has also not remarried after her divorce and to date.

It is possible that she may have been dating someone secretly after her divorce from her ex-husband, but information about that possibility has not been picked up by the paparazzi to date. There are also rumors or a theory out there in the grapevine that though she may divorce her ex-husband, both of them still seem to be romantically linked to date, hence the reason why they are both still single.

Rouba Saadeh is a Model and Graphics Designer

Rouba Saadeh has a degree in Graphics Designing, and prior to meeting her ex-husband Michele Morrone, she was a model and Graphics Designer in her home country. Her first job was as a Graphics Designer at Alpha MICI – a company she worked with for 2 years. In 2013, she co-founded a designer label store called Les Paradis Des Fous.

She stopped working temporarily while she was married, and as soon as she got divorced from her ex-husband she took up a job with Elie Saab first as a Senior Coordinator in 2019. Two years later, she moved up the ladder to become a Studio Supervisor mid-2021. She presently works as a Manager with the same company and is quite successful in her chosen career.
