Harris Faulkner and her husband Tony Berlin were competitors at first, but they got together and now have two gorgeous daughters. Let's review what we know about the Fox host's longtime partner.
In 2003, the love story of Harris Faulkner and Tony Berlin began when the two worked on competing tv stations in Minneapolis, Minnesota. They met through mutual friends and tied the knot in 2003.
Faulkner was an anchor for KSTP-TV while Berlin worked as a reporter for WCCO-TV. Faulkner then began working with Fox network, getting so comfortable that she was called the "Curler lady" for going to meetings with hair curlers.

EARLY LIFE AND SCHOOLING
As for Berlin, he left television where he'd worked as a reporter, anchor, and producer for 10 years, and went into public relations. He runs his company, Berlin Media Relations, from home.
Berlin's hometown is Tuscon, Arizona, where he attended Amphitheater High School. Now and then, he and Faulkner go to their second home in the area to visit friends and family.
Before his career took off, Berlin studied political science at Occidental College in Los Angeles. On the side, he played basketball. He got his first producer job with Cox Broadcasting soon after.
CAREER AND MAKING A SWITCH
In 1992, Berlin completed his studies with a master's degree from American University in public policy and journalism. His tv career saw him travel to Roanoke, Virginia, Savannah, Georgia, and Dayton, Ohio.
Berlin was working with CBS News when he met his wife. After getting married, the couple moved to New York City in 2005. Berlin pursued public relations the year after.
He first worked with Padilla Speer Beardsley as a media relations manager then moved on to Credit.com as a media relations director. In 2011, he started his own company.
FAMILY LIFE AND RACE DISCUSSION
Berlin is still a big Arizona Wildcats fan, but these days he devotes time to his two daughters, Bella and Danika. The family primarily resides in New Jersey, but the girls were baptized in Tubac, Arizona.
Since Faulkner is black and Berlin white, they've engaged in the race discussion during the George Floyd protests and the resulting calls for change.
Speaking to People, Faulkner explained, "My family is ecumenical, and it's biracial, so the fact that we're having [race conversations] is not a shock. It's just the way we're forced into acknowledging some things right now."
LOVING HER MIXED FAMILY
Back in 2019, Faulkner sweetly noted that "it's a blessing" to be raising bi-racial girls, who are now 10 and 12 years old. She praised her colorful family and called their unique challenges "beautiful."
Among these are hairstyles for the girls, and crushes on boys at school. While mommy might better solve most of these, we're sure Berlin is doing his best to help out.
