Jeanine Ferris Pirro, shortly Jeanine Pirro, is an American conservative television host and author, and a former New York State judge, prosecutor, and politician. She presently hosts the Fox News Channel's show Justice with Judge Jeanine.

Jeanine, the first female district attorney elected to Westchester County, started her career by writing appeals and handling minor cases as an assistant district attorney of Westchester County in 1995.

Her then-spokesman, Anne Marie Corbalis, even asserted that she had a "100% felony conviction rate" as an assistant district attorney.

She has also published books, including Liars, Leakers, and Liberals: The Case Against the Anti-Trump Conspiracy, which comprises some of the most egregious lies she'd ever seen during her tenure as an attorney.

But her professional success didn't contribute to her personal life, as Jeanine had a bad experience with marriage.

Despite ending her married life on bad terms, she didn't harvest 'sour grapes.' Instead, she took the failed marriage in her stride and moved on with her children and career.

Divorced from Husband after 38 Years of Marriage

Jeanine got married to an American lawyer Albert Pirro in 1975. The couple first met when they were in the same alma mater, i.e., Albany Law School.

Together, they shared two children, a daughter named Christi Pirro, born in 1985, and a son named Alexander Pirro, born in 1989.

Their marriage life was running smoothly until her husband was indicted by the office of United States Attorney for tax evasion in 1999.

Albert also spent 11 months in prison after being charged with 34 counts of tax evasion and conspiracy in June 2003.

Even previously, he had cheated on Jeanine during the 1980s and fathered a daughter Jaclyn Marciano with his mistress Jessica Hutchison. His affair was publicly known in the late 1990s after he was charged with tax evasion.

Keeping all those things on mind, Jeanine decided to end her marriage with Albert in 2007. The divorce was finalized in 2013.

In January 2021, former President Donald Trump issued a full pardon for Albert for his conspiracy and tax evasion charges in the closing minutes of his presidency.

He was granted a pardon in a flurry of more than 140 last-minute pardons and commutations that Trump issued overnight to loyalists, including alt-right provocateur and former aide Steve Bannon and celebrities like rappers Lil Wayne and Kodak Black.

Her Daughter Is a Married Woman Now

Jeanine's children are grown-up now. Her daughter Christi, also named Kiki, even got married on August 19, 2017.

Her wedding with her husband Zak Schwartzman was held at House Island, off the coast of Portland, Maine.

Meanwhile, Jeanine was happy to see her daughter get married as she took to Twitter several times to express her excitement. On August 22, 2017, she posted a picture with her son Alexander and stated that her son walked her down the aisle at his sister's wedding.

Speaking of Alexander, he is currently a vice president at Macquarie Group, a commercial real estate lending platform.

Diagnosed with Cancer

In 2012, Jeanine was diagnosed with cancer with the help of nuclear imaging technology, which utilizes uranium as the lead radioactive compound to diagnose illness.

Around the same time, a key uranium mine was given to Russian buyers, leaving America's 20% supply in the hands of Russians. 

Therefore, she criticized then-president Barack Obama and Hillary Clinton, former secretary of state, for finalizing the process.

Later, the television host fully recovered from cancer and leads a healthy life now.
