How did Katherine Jenkins meet Andrew Levitas?
Welsh mezzo-soprano Katherine Jenkins is known for her amazing voice and strong accent – but did you know she’s married to an American?
Yep, Katherine first met US-born painter and filmmaker Andrew Levitas around – we think – October 2013, assumedly in New York, where Andrew is a professor at New York University.
By March 2014, their relationship was made public as Katherine brought Andrew as her guest, when she visited Buckingham Palace to be awarded her OBE.
In April 2014, reports announced the happy couple’s engagement.
Katherine Jenkins’ wedding
In September 2014, Katherine and Andrew tied the knot in a very Welsh-themed wedding at Hampton Court Palace, in Richmond-upon-Thames.
Katherine, of course, looked stunning in a Suzanne Neville gown – made all the more special by the fact she’d had her late best friend Polly Noble’s name embroidered onto the dress.
(Not the one pictured… that’s just a nice white dress!)
Katherine’s father sadly passed away when she was 15 years old, so she was walked down the aisle by her mother, Susan.
Katherine’s 1st pregnancy
Shortly after the wedding, it was revealed Andrew and Katherine had some exciting pregnancy news to share!
In September 2015, Katherine gave birth to her 1st child, a baby girl named Aaliyah.
It seems Katherine and Andrew are quite private about their kids, though we have seen a few discreet pics from Katherine’s Instagram…
Katherine’s 2nd pregnancy
On 14 November 2017, Katherine announced she and Andrew were expecting their 2nd child.
On 10 March 2018, Katherine celebrated her baby shower, and revealed she was expecting a boy. She shared a few sweet snaps of the joyous event on Instagram.
We have to say: it looks like one hell of a baby shower! She also revealed she’d picked the Bugaboo Donkey as her double buggy.
Xander Robert Selywn
In April 2018, Katherine gave birth to her 2nd child, a baby boy.
On 24 April 2018, she shared the happy news on Instagram: “Andrew, Aaliyah and I are proud to announce the arrival of our gorgeous son Xander Robert Selwyn Levitas.
“His middle names honour our late fathers who live on in our little ‘Defender of Men’ (Meaning of Xander).
“Our family, our home and are hearts could not be more full of love & we are incredibly grateful for the gift of being parents to these beautiful children. Cwtches to you all xxx”
