Emanuela Pecchia is an Italian celebrity family member and celebrity wife. She was shot to notoriety following her romantic relationship with her now-husband, Paolo Macchiarini — a Swiss-born Italian VIP specialist and thoracic surgeon.
In this article, I will share Emanuela Pecchia’s biography, career, husband, children, net worth, and other things you probably didn’t know about her. Before we continue, however, let’s take a quick look at her profile.
Much as the exact date and year of birth of Emanuela Pecchia is obscure, a couple of sources presume she was born either in the late 60s or early 70s. She was born in her home country, Italy, and holds Italian citizenship by birth.
There is not much information about Emanuela Pecchia other than she rose to prominence after her romantic relationship with Paolo Macchiarini made it to the internet.
She has a white skin color with a black-colored hair type and a dark brown-colored pair of eyes, and she belongs to the White ethnic group.
Emanuela Pecchia and Paolo Macchiarini have two children (a daughter and a son) together. Details about the names of their two children have remained obscure.
Who is Paolo Macchiarini? Emanuela Pecchia Husband
Paolo Macchiarini, as we pointed out earlier, is Emanuela Pecchia’s husband. Now, Emanuela Pecchia and Paolo Macchiarini met each other for the first time in Italy. Paolo Macchiarini, according to the information available to our team at the time, divided his time between Italy and the United States when he first met Emanuela.
According to the information on the internet, Paolo Macchiarini got himself hooked up with a TV and NBC producer, Benita Alexander, whom he met during one of his interviews on NBC.
Although he developed an affection for the news personality, Paolo had a relationship with Emanuela Pecchia.
Paolo and Emanuela have been together for about thirty years — more than likely, already married. According to reports, the news personality Benita Alexander later found out about Paolo’s relationship situation with Emanuela.
Then, she ended things with Paolo, notwithstanding that Paolo had wanted to marry her — all of this happened in 2015.
We know Paolo was already married to Emanuela during these shenanigans and while they went on. We gathered that Emanuela and her husband Paolo tied their wedding knot in Italy in 1986 — years before the Benita Alexander situation.
Where is Emanuela Pecchia now?
Emanuela Pecchia has maintained a low profile and avoided media attention following the emergence of her husband’s case. Her current location remains undisclosed, and it is uncertain whether she remains in a relationship with Macchiarini, given the difficulties their marriage has encountered.
During her time with Macchiarini, they welcomed two children, a son and a daughter. However, Macchiarini’s extramarital affairs, including a notable one with Ana Paula Bernardes — the mother of one of his transplant patients, with whom he fathered a child — have further complicated the situation. He also had an affair with Benita Alexander when he was with Pecchia.
Emanuela Pecchia does not have an estimated net worth. At the time, however, her husband, Paolo Macchiarini, has an estimated net worth of about $4 million.
