We Finally Know Who Bobby Flay's Mystery Girlfriend Is

After months of playing coy, longtime Food Network personality and celebrity chef Bobby Flay, 56, has finally spilled the proverbial tea on his girlfriend's identity. Prior to stepping out publicly together, Flay had been asked several times to elaborate when he mentioned his girlfriend in interviews, probably most notably during a segment with "Today" host Savannah Guthrie. In another appearance, he mentioned his girlfriend again — this time to Jenna Bush Hager and Hoda Kotb — but only mentioned that she is a vegetarian. For someone who is generally pretty outspoken, some assumed his tight-lippedness probably meant that things are getting serious between the pair!

Earlier in November, Flay and his love interest went public at the Breeders' Cup World Championship, which the chef's horse Pizza Bianca won, per People. The cherry on top of that experience was that he was able to enjoy the big win alongside Christina Pérez, his girlfriend, who is also an accomplished professional writer.

Who is Bobby Flay's new girlfriend, Christina Pérez?

Christina Pérez, age 40, is currently employed as a senior content and creative director for a THC and CBD company called Miss Grass, according to The U.S. Sun. Before that, she turned heads at employers like Vogue, Elle, and Glamour and freelanced for many other fashion outlets. She also has an active Instagram account, where she shares her travels to places like Barbados, Maldives, and Italy with more than 14,000 followers. Now that her profile has been raised by her association with Flay, it's likely that number will continue to rise! Pérez, like Flay, was previously married, although only once,

Before falling for Pérez, Flay's most recent relationship ended in 2019. He has been married three times prior, most recently to actress Stephanie March from 2005 to 2015. He has one child from his second marriage to Kate Connelly. As Flay has recently ended his association with Food Network, his new relationship with Pérez is a classic case of one door closing and another opening. Congratulations to the happy couple!
