Sebastian Maniscalco's Wife Is a Gifted Painter and a Mother of Two — Meet Lana Gomez

Comedian Sebastian Maniscalco has been happily married to Lana Gomez for seven years, and they share two beautiful children.

Actor and comedian Sebastian Maniscalco has been married to artist Lana Gomez since 2013, and the couple has welcomed two children, daughter Serafina, 3, and son Caruso, who is now 18 months old.

Their love story is worthy of a romantic comedy, and even though Sebastian was lovestruck at first sight, the stunning Lana wasn't impressed, and the comedian had to work hard to win her heart.

MEETING SEBASTIAN MANISCALCO

Sebastian and Lana met through their personal trainer. Sebastian was scheduled to train right after his future wife and was immediately impressed by the stunning blond. 

The comedian, known for his dry humor, asked her if she'd "go out with this," gesturing at his own body, to which Lana replied that she didn't date anyone with more than 13% body fat.

WINNING THE GIRL

Lana's sharp wit made Sebastian even more determined to win her over, and win he did. He didn't just get her to go out with him; he persuaded the beautiful, talented artist to marry him.

The couple tied the knot in 2013, and in 2017, they welcomed their first child together, a sweet baby girl they named Serafina after Sebastian's beloved Sicilian grandmother.

Fans who visit Lana's Instagram page will find a wealth of art. Lana is a talented artist whose work has been recognized by publications like "House Beautiful," "The New Yorker," and "Los Angeles Confidential."

Lana moved to Los Angeles from Tenessee, and her work caught the eye of designer Kelly Wearstler. This led to a position as the artist in residence at Wearstler’s prestigious design studio.

Sebastian went from serving Academy-Award winning director Martin Scorcese drinks to starring in his film "The Irishman" alongside Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci.

Thanks to Lana's work with Wearstler, her art hangs in some of the city's most prestigious homes and businesses, including the legendary Greystone Mansion in Beverly Hills, the venue of the famous Annual Hollywood Ball.

Since then, Lana has exhibited her work in many galleries, and Gibson GuitarTown commissioned a 10-foot guitar sculpture for their Sunset Strip, West Hollywood store.

BABY #2

In 2018, the couple revealed that they were expecting their second child, and in June 2019, they welcomed their son, Caruso. Sebastian explained that there was a story behind the baby's name, and it had to do with their honeymoon. He said:

“Lana and I stayed at Hotel Caruso on the Amalfi coast on our honeymoon and loved it. When we learned it actually means ‘boy’ in Sicilian, it sealed the deal!”

THE ROAD TO SUCCESS

Even though the father of two is now one of the most successful and well-paid stand-up comedians, the road to success was hard and long. In order to fund his career as a comedian, Sebastian had to work as a waiter.

For seven years, he worked at the famous Four Seasons Hotel in Beverley Hills, the favored stopping place for A-list stars and celebrities, before the stand-up gigs turned into a steady career.

FOOTING THE BILL

Sebastian does not regret his days as a waiter, and it served as a tutorial on human behavior and gave him endless material for his stand-up act. He said of those days:

“It put food in my mouth and paid the bills, but, to see the way people act...”

In order to support himself and still work as a comedian, Sebastian would schedule breaks during the dinner shifts at the Four Seasons and rush over to Comedy Store to do a gig. On his return, he'd step in smoothly to bring an elaborate dish or recommend the right wine. Sebastian revealed:

“Whatever work would come my way, I’d say, ‘Just book me.’ Let me go out there—whatever the gig is, whatever the pay is.”

NEVER GIVE UP

Sebastian never gave up on his dream of being a comedian, even if he had to work as a satellite dish salesman or go into debt to support his dream. And it paid off.

Sebastian went from serving Academy-Award winning director Martin Scorcese drinks to starring in his film "The Irishman" alongside Robert De Niro, Al Pacino, and Joe Pesci.

Today, Sebastian Maniscalco is one of the funniest men on earth, and a successful one, too, with a beautiful, talented wife and two adorable children.
