American journalist Jeannette Reyes awes her fans and followers with her adorable relationship with her fellow journalist husband, Robert Burton. They have been together since 2012 and have kept the spark of their relationship alive even after a long-distance dating and marriage.

Maintained Long-Distance Marriage with Husband

Jeanette Reyes and her husband Robert Burton are couple goals!

The pair's love story started when they met in the summer of 2012 in Little Rock, Arkansas. As both of them had just initiated their journaling career, they found a topic to relate to and became best friends.

They started dating in 2013 and maintained a long-distance relationship whenever they got a job in different cities. For instance, when the Fox 5 D.C. reporter moved to Washington D.C. for her reporting in 2014, her partner supported her. 

Thankfully, six months after, he also got a job at the same station.

Relishing their relationship, the duo got engaged in 2015 and tied the wedding knots on August 20, 2016, at Carnegie Institution for Science, Washington, D.C. 

The former 6ABC anchor donned a white sleeveless, mermaid tulle wedding dress while her fiancé wore a matching black tuxedo for the big day. 

Despite the grand celebration, the new bride and groom got little time to celebrate as husband and wife. Just two months before their wedding, Reyes had signed a contract of four and a half years at a station in Philadelphia.

Hence, they maintained a long-distance marriage after the wedding.

Finally, on December 7, 2020, Reyes returned to Washington D.C. and started living with her husband. In the city, she works for Fox 5 D.C. while her husband works for ABC7.

Rhode Island Native's Birthday, Age

Reyes was born Jeannette Alexandra Reyes in 1990 in Providence, Rhode Island, USA. Her parents and older siblings had immigrated to the city from Santo Domingo, Dominican Republic.

Celebrating her birthday every August 23, the 30-years-old grew up mostly in a Hispanic community. Hence, she is fluent in Spanish. 

The news anchor completed her high school education at Cranston High School West in Rhode Island and graduated in broadcast journalism from Kent State University.

Reyes, whose height is 5'4", identifies as an Afro-Latina and has been a member of the National Association of Hispanic Journalists and the National Association of Black Journalists.
