Carson and Siri met on the set of his show, "Last Call With Carson Daly," and although their connection was instant, the pair were not eager to flaunt their romance in public. Carson and his wife kept their affair a secret.

The couple initially termed their love as an office romance; therefore, they preferred to keep it hush-hush. Finally, however, the pair realized it was more than butterflies in their bellies but full-blown love and affection.

Carson explained to Bush Hager that he and Siri had been cautious about expressing their love for each other at the workplace. So they would usually keep it professional at the office and then meet at his favorite bar after work.

Carson considered himself very lucky to have met his wife. He recalled falling in love in a work environment and being scared to show it. However, once the initial challenge wore off, he had Siri become "legit."

THEY HAD A LONG COURTSHIP PERIOD

Even after realizing how deep their love for each other ran, Siri and her man were not in a rush to tie the knot. They were together for ten years before wedding bells were heard. 

Once, in an interview with Elle, Carson was asked if he felt the pressure to get married. At the time, he and Siri already had children.

He shared that there was no pressure, and for them, "long-lasting healthy relationships" were more important than the "idea of marriage." 

He stated that the root of every successful marriage lay in a strong partnership, and he and Siri achieved that without tying the knot. However, at another time, the TV host stated that he and his partner would become man and wife when the time came.
