Celebrity Chef Bobby Flay is a proud father to one daughter, Sophie, whom he welcomed in his second marriage. Here is a glimpse into the 24-year-old's life


Bobby Flay is undoubtedly one of the most famous chefs in the United States but what many might not know is that in addition to his remarkable culinary skills, he is also a great dad to his daughter Sophie Flay.

Sophie, whom Bobby shares with his ex-wife, Kate Connelly, was born in 1996, and while she might not be as famous as her dad, the 24-year-old has managed to give fans a glimpse of her life via social media.

From posts on her Instagram, 24-year-old Sophie loves to hang out with her loved ones and also enjoys lending her voice to important social justice issues.

In addition to this, Sophie often shows love to Bobby on her Instagram. Last week, the doting daughter shared an adorable picture with her dad accompanied by a caption wishing him a happy birthday.


Also, to mark the Father's Day celebration in June, Sophie shared a picture featuring Bobby alongside a caption where she gushed about her love for him. Being his only child, it comes as no surprise that Bobby spends a lot of time with Sophie.


The 24-year-old University of Southern California graduate also works as a contributor for ABC's Localish in Los Angeles


Even more, the father-daughter duo shares a lot in common. While speaking last year, Sophie reportedly explained that she and Bobby enjoy the same television shows and the same podcasts.

They also often bond over their shared love for horse racing. In addition to this, Sophie is walking in her father's footsteps as she now has a love for food and often appears alongside the proud chef on his show, "Beat Bobby Flay."


The father-daughter duo enjoys working together so much that in 2019, they launched their own show, "The Flay List," on Food Network. This ran for one season.

Sophie's impressive skills do not end at cooking as the 24-year-old University of Southern California graduate also works as a contributor for ABC in Los Angeles.

Her time in the media can be traced back to 2016 when she worked as an intern for NBC at the Rio Summer Olympic Games. Sophie was there for two weeks and had fun covering some of the events.

Sophie might be an only child, but the 24-year-old is undoubtedly doing well for herself, and there is no doubt that Bobby is indeed a proud dad.
