Not only is Lara Spencer a successful television presenter, but she is also a super-mom of two beautiful children. Here's everything we know about her son Duff Haffenreffer and daughter Katharine Paige Haffenreffer.


Lara Spencer, best known for being the co-anchor for ABC's "Good Morning America," shared her teenage children with her first husband, David Haffenreffer, as reported by Closer Weekly.

Spencer tied the knot with David Haffenreffer in 2000. Two years later, the former couple welcomed their eldest child, Duff. In 2004, they welcomed Katharine into the world together. Scroll below to learn more about her two kiddos.

According to Closer Weekly, Spencer became a mother for the first time when she gave birth to Duff on January 22, 2002. The mother-son duo has an undeniable bond with each other.

In January 2020, Spencer took to Instagram to pay tribute to her eldest child while celebrating his eighteenth birthday. The proud mother wrote:

"18 feels impossible. You make me laugh. You fill my heart. I love you sooooo much."


In September 2018, Duff walked her famous mom down the aisle on her wedding day to her second husband, New York tech entrepreneur Richard McVey.


Katharine was born on October 4, 2004. She frequently appeared on her mother's social media pages, like her older sibling, Duff. Many fans noticed her striking resemblance to her mom.


Spencer could not resist giving her daughter a special shout-out on Instagram during her latest birthday in October 2020. The television presenter praised Katharine for being kind and compassionate.

The doting mother, who is also a correspondent for Nightline and ABC News, loves sharing adorable photos while hanging out with her second child.



Spencer has lived in Connecticut since she tied the knot with Haffenreffer. After calling it quits with the real estate broker in 2015, Spencer still lives in her house in Connecticut, as reported by Closer Weekly.

In 2018, her second husband, Richard, moved in after marrying him. "I love living in Connecticut and raising my family here," the host once said in an interview.



In August 2019, Spencer issued an apology on "Good Morning America" for her comment mocking the interest of Prince George in ballet, as reported by CNN.

The host admitted at the time that she "screwed up." The host called her comment about dance "stupid and insensitive." She was deeply sorry, Spencer said.
