Together since Early 2020

The relationship between LaFlamme and Gidell seems to have started around early 2020. 

Gidell was the first to post about the relationship publicly. On May 13, 2020, he tweeted a picture of them in matching tracksuits with their dog, Jacob. Gidell introduced LaFlamme as the love of his life, family, future, and everything. LaFlamme retweeted the picture as well.

Talking about their marital status, on March 1, 2021, LaFlamme took to Instagram to share her excitement and happiness on Gidell's proposal. 

Similarly, the soon-to-be-married Gidell, too, shared a photo from his proposal. He considered himself the luckiest man on earth when his reporter girlfriend said 'yes.'

With skateboards and hikes, it’s evident Gidell is a man of the outdoors. His Instagram is full of videos and pictures of him snowboarding and playing ice hockey.

When he’s not hitting the slopes, he takes journalistic images for WXYZ TV Channel 7, where he has been working since May 2015. He also runs his own production company called Knotch! Production and works at Pink Jeep Tours as a guide.
