The multi-millionaire chef wasn't single for long when he met his second wife, KateConnelly, in 1994 and tied the knot with her in October 1995. He has a daughter with Kate named Sophie. This marriage, too, didn't last long and ended in 1998.
Two failed marriages perhaps knocked some sense in Bobby as he didn't rush into marriage this time. Shortly after his second divorce, he was set on a blind date with actress StephanieMarch; the duo dated for quite a while and got hitched in 2005.
Years after their marriage, headlines and rumors were flying about the couple not coping well, with March alleging Flay was having an affair with Elyse Tirrell, his personal assistant, but the most grievous allegation made against him would be when his then-wife March's appendix burst and was sent to the hospital and Flay went MIA on her.
Reports said that March was livid with her husband's disregard towards her, and the couple ended their ten years-long marriage in 2015 after many feuds.
