Jesse Watters, Fox News commentator, may have been proud of his efforts to woo a younger woman when he let the air out of her tires, but many see this act as confusing and inappropriate.
Jesse Watters Tells His Story on Fox News
On April 11, commentator, Jesse Watters described to his cohosts of The Five how he pursued his now wife, Emma Digiovine. The couple, who have been married since 2019 have one son, Jesse Baily Watters Jr., who was born April 1, 2021. But their start was a bit creepy. Watch him describe it here:
The disturbing story, as Jesse told it, was unknown to the self-proclaimed fitness expert when he shared it on air. Yet, he laughs and jokes about it with fellow The Five commentators.
“When I was trying to get Emma to date me, uh, first thing I did…uh…I let the air out of her tires,” he explains. “She couldn’t go anywhere. She needed a lift, I said, ‘Hey, you need a lift?’ She hopped right in the car.”
One commentator, Greg Gutfeld, jokes, “You’re basically the Zodiac killer.”
And Jesse Watters responds, “It has a happy ending.”
When asked if this was the first time he let the air out of someone’s tires to get them to date him, the Fox commentator’s response was, “It works like a charm.”
If that were all to the story, it would still be disturbing, but it’s not.
What Jesse Watters didn’t mention was that he was married to his first wife, Noelle Inguagiato, and the mother of his twin daughters, when he let the air out of Emma’s tires to pursue her romantically. It was this affair that led Noelle Inguagiato to file for divorce.
The commentator, who was around 39 years old at the time, was 14 years older than Emma Digiovine, who was 25 years old at the time, not to mention the two were coworkers, and he was her superior.
That said, after his first wife filed for divorce, he and Emma were married in a year and a half.
On their one year anniversary, Emma posted some of the couple’s photos to her Instagram, along with the caption, “Married the love of my life one year ago today. And what a year it’s been.”
