Pictures from the wedding of Nicolle Wallace and Michael Schmidt
Wallace and her husband Michale Schmidt’s wedding photos have been viewed widely on the internet. Page Six says the reporters will be married on April 2, 2022.
The source says Nicolle was wearing a wedding ring when she went back to work. An MSNBC spokesman told Page Six that the wedding was small and included only close family members.
Schmidt doesn’t officially work for MSNBC, but Page Six says he’s been on Wallace’s show many times.
Schmidt, a reporter for the New York Times, told the world that when Hillary Clinton was Secretary of State, she sent classified information through her personal email account.
After three years together, they married
Michael Schmidt and Nicole Wallace are both well-known in their fields, but they haven’t told anyone about their relationship. Wallace, who split from her husband in March 2019, has worked hard to keep her personal life out of the news.
Page Six says the couple has only been seen in public this month at the South By Southwest (SXSW) event in Austin, Texas.
People who know the couple well say Wallace wouldn’t go public with a new relationship so soon after the divorce.
Schmidt and Wallace aren’t the first people to work together at MSNBC and fall in love. “Morning Joe” co-hosts Mika Brzezinski and Joe Scarborough got married in 2018, according to Vanity Fair.
The top people at MSNBC were briefed on the relationships in both cases, and they approved of them.
