The fun-loving pair began dating in 2010 and their courtship has been documented on Real Housewives of New York. Last season on the Bravo show, De Lesseps and Azoulay’s relationship became a major focal point, as the countess was considering having another child.
De Lesseps was previously married to French nobleman Count Alexandre for 16 years before they divorved in 2009. She has two teenage kids with him – Victoria and Noel.
