Greg Gutfeld has been happily married to his longtime wife Elena Moussa for years. The duo tied the knot in 2004, and it's safe to say that their relationship is going strong.

But despite being blissfully married, Gutfeld has been rumored to be gay time and again. So why did the gay rumors originate in the first place, and is there any truth behind the speculations? 

Is Greg Gutfeld Gay?

In August 2010, the television personality took to his blog, The Daily Gut, to share his opinion on homophobia

Gutfeld stated that he would build a gay bar near the planned Ground Zero Mosque to reduce deadly homophobia that is thought to be rooted in Islamic communities.

His bizarre response came after plans of building a Muslim community center and mosque on the site of Ground Zero in lower Manhattan surfaced.

Insisting his idea was not a joke, Gutfeld stressed, "planning to build and open the first gay bar that caters not only to the west but also Islamic gay men."

He explained his goal was to "break down barriers and reduce deadly homophobia in the Islamic world." 

While Gutfeld openly shared his piece of mind on the matter and raised his voice for gay people, many assumed he was also a part of the LGBTQ+ community. Hence, gay rumors started circulating. 

But the gossip got dismissed once the political commentary married his longtime girlfriend and introduced her as his wife.

Greg Gutfeld's Marriage with Wife Elena Moussa

Gutfeld, who stands at the height of 1.68 m (5' 6"), has a pleasant relationship with his wife.

Coincidently, Moussa worked as an editor for Maxim in Russia while Gutfeld worked as an editor for Maxim in London. The pair first met during a meeting of all worldwide Maxim editors in 1999.

Gutfeld fell in love with Moussa at first sight and "foolishly hit her for three days." Finally, he mustered his courage and asked her out on a date. 

Their chemistry soon blossomed, and the two began dating.

They dated for five months before finally exchanging the vows and getting married via a civil ceremony in New York in December 2004. 

However, the lovebirds kept the details of their wedding concealed. They also maintain a low-key profile when it comes to their married life.

Despite the privacy, the pair's social media accounts reflect their strong marriage. Gutfeld often shares pictures of his wife.
