She is a former model but has decided to stay out of the public’s eye in recent years.

So, do you want to find out more about Matthew Fox’s wife, from her childhood to most recent career endeavors and her personal life as well? If yes, then stay with us for a while as we introduce you to Margherita Ronchi.


Margherita Ronchi is of Italian ancestry, and was born in Venice, Italy, reportedly on 14 July 1966, so she is around 50 years old. Her mother had a modeling studio, and growing up in one of the European fashion centers, she became interested in modeling at an early age. Naturally for young Margherita, she honed her modeling skills at her mother’s studio, and also took an interest in design, and attended several relevant high-profile schools.


Margherita launched her career right out of high school, and would often travel to the US for work; during one of her visits she met Matthew, a mutual friend introducing them, while another story speaks about how they both attended acting school at one of the many theaters of New York City. Soon after their first meeting, Margherita and Matthew started a romantic relationship, and Margherita moved to the US for good and started pursuing her career. She remains active as a model until the present day, however, her appearances are rather seldom these days as she is more focused on her children. Unfortunately, there is no information about her professional endeavors, however, her relationship with Matthew became quite fruitful.


Their relationship progressed steadily and somewhere between 1987 and 1992, Matthew proposed to Margherita, with their wedding ceremony being on 1st August 1992. Since then, the couple has welcomed a daughter Kyle born in 1998, and a son Byron, born in 2001. However, back in 2010, Matthew was accused of having an affair with a stripper, to which he apparently admitted, but regardless he and Margherita have remained together.


After launching her career, Margherita became quite popular in her native Italy, and then moved to the US to pursue her career there. She made several notable appearances and is still active as a model, which has certainly contributed to her wealth. So, have you ever wondered how rich Margherita Ronchi is, as of early 2019? According to authoritative sources, it has been estimated that Ronchi ’s net worth is as high as $5 million.


Now that we have shared all there is to know about Margherita, let’s share some information about her husband, Matthew Fox.
