Chef Bobby Flay of Food Network has found his perfect match! In late 2020, the Beat Bobby Flay celebrity was presented to his girlfriend, Christina Pérez. The couple has now made their love public and shared adorable social media posts about their romance.

Christina is the senior content manager and creative director for the company Miss Grass, which distributes a variety of THC and CBD products. According to the company’s website, she has previously written for Vogue, Condé Nast, GQ, Architectural Digest, Glamour, and other publications. The native of Wisconsin studied fashion illustration and design at New York’s Fashion Institute of Technology.

In addition to becoming a writer and heading the company, Christina worked as a model all over the world, from Japan to Italy. Bobby was introduced to her by mutual friends, and the two hit it off immediately. In November 2021, they appeared together at the Breeders’ Cup World Championship. Pizza Bianca, his horse, finished the race in the first place.

“Winning a Breeders’ Cup Race is clearly a dream come true, but to be able to share it with your family, my daughter, my girlfriend, and my business partner,” Bobby told reporters after the race. “All the people I love so dearly are here today to support me and Pizza Bianca.”

Before he met Christina, the Boy Meets Grill star had been married three times. In 1991, Bobby married chef Debra Ponzek. The pair separated after two years. During their marriage, which lasted from 1995 to 1998, he and his second wife, Kate Connelly, had one child, a girl named Sophie.

In 2005, he married actress Stephanie March, and they separated a decade later. After meeting Christina, the television star, who was previously linked to Heléne Yorke in 2019, has an entirely new view on love.

“She is really beautiful. Bobby told People in December 2021, “I’m incredibly glad to have met her.” She is always the light at the end of the day for me, as my life is so incredibly chaotic.

During that month, Christina assisted her boyfriend in preparing one of her favorite family recipes, Empanada Asturiana. In her Instagram Stories, she documented the culinary experience. Since their first meeting, the brunette beauty has had a significant impact on Bobby’s cooking techniques and recipes.

“I may prepare Puerto Rican cuisine on Christmas Day,” he stated at the time. “She is half Puerto Rican, and I adore the flavors and food of that culture, so I want to make sure she feels represented at Christmas.”
