Radio personality Howard Stern could not help but wonder how he got lucky with his second marriage.
Stern tied the knot with then long-time girlfriend Beth Ostrosky on October 3, 2008, an event that marked a major turning point in his life.
"Sometimes I'll look at her and think, 'Is this really happening? How could this person love me?'"
Stern was previously married to Alison, with whom he shares three children.
His wedding to Beth was held at Manhattan’s Le Cirque restaurant and was attended by big names including Barbara Walters, Billy Joel, John Stamos, Joan Rivers, Donald Trump, and Sarah Silverman.
“They love each other. They’re great to one another,” Walters was quoted as saying by the New York Post.
Stern recently recalled the first time he laid his eyes on his future wife. It was at a dinner party hosted by mutual friends on a “rainy, cold night.”
"There was this light around her. She was just glowing," he recalled in his memoir, "Howard Stern Comes Again."
Looking back, Stern could not help but wonder how he got lucky with Beth.
"Sometimes I'll look at her and think, 'Is this really happening? How could this person love me?'" he said. "I guess that's the definition of a dream girl, and nineteen years in I still feel that way about her."
The media maverick had also shared about how he proposed to Beth, who worked as a model.
Stern announced on his satellite radio that he had proposed the evening before, surprising her with an engagement ring while they were naked in bed.
They dated for seven years before swapping vows in 2008. They don’t have children together, but they are proud to have fostered more than 900 cats.
It comes as no surprise, considering that Beth is a longtime animal rights activist.
Stern recently had an offensive verbal exchange with fellow media personality Wendy Williams in the wake of the publication of his book, “Howard Stern Comes Again.”
Stern got offended when Williams said he has become “so predictable.”
He said in response: You are nobody to me. You’ll never be me, Wendy. You can pretend to be me, you can pretend to be like me, but you’re not.
"You don’t have my wit and you don’t have my talent. You couldn’t have that career. You are a fly.”
