It was in Geisha where she met with her ex-husband Anthony Bourdain in 2006, and the couple instantly felt connected and started dating. After a year-long dating affair, Celebrity chef and host of the food show No Reservations, Ottavia and Anthony Bourdain tied the knots in an intimate wedding ceremony. 

The marriage was the first for Ottavia and second for Anthony Bourdain. Before Ottavia, Anthony was married to Nancy Putkoski in 1985 and separated after 20 years of togetherness in 2005. 

The couple had a daughter, Ariane a year after tying the knots. Celebrity Chef Anthony Bourdain, who had his past troubles with alcohol and substance abuse, credited his daughter Ariane as the reason for him changing his lifestyle and becoming a more responsible person.

Ottavia, meanwhile, pursued a career in Mixed Martial arts and took up jujitsu after her daughter's birth.
