Buddy Valastro is a revered culinary pro whose expertise in cake and confections earned him widespread recognition. But away from his years of achievements, Valastro holds his family dear to his heart.

The star never shies away from giving props to his wife, Lisa, to whom he has been married for decades. The pair are parents to four children, and they keep thriving in their fields.

While Buddy maintains his "Cake Boss" recognition on TV, Lisa thrives as a podcast co-host who runs "What's Up Cuz?" alongside Erica Spera. She also has guest-starred on "The Chew," "Rachel Ray," and "Kitchen Boss."

Lisa dedicates her philanthropy to helping sick children. In 2018, she and her spouse made concerted efforts on a fundraiser for the Children's Hospital of San Antonio.

While she handles her busy schedule, Lisa, 40, makes sure to give her children quality time and attention. Her older kids are Bartolo and Sophia, who pretty much take care of themselves, while Marco and Carlo are the youngest.

He referred to her as amazing because of how she went the extra mile in taking care of him.

In the late 1990s, Lisa and Buddy made acquaintances through a mutual who was Lisa's best friend and Buddy's second cousin. It was love at first sight when they met, but the couple waited until they were 19 and 22 before making it official.

Their love grew into the 200s but weathered some rocky moments due to Buddy's ambitions and busy work life. In the end, the pair worked it out just fine, and amid the pandemic, they did get more time to themselves.

In September, updates on Buddy showed he was severely injured on the right hand after a bowling pinsetter was wedged into his hands. The star dad had been trying to fix a malfunctioning bowling pin in his home's alley.

The metal had wedged inside his fingers, and he underwent surgeries. Speaking with ET about his recovery, the Food Network star noted he was taking it a day at a time while he keeps up positivity.

Through it all, Buddy sees a good side to his injury as he confirmed in a chat that he and Lisa grew closer. He referred to her as amazing because of how she went the extra mile in taking care of him. Now that's love!
