American political commentator Alex Wagner, who is currently the anchor on the Showtime's The Circus, is in a marital relationship with the president's chef Sam Kass. The couple came into the limelight after the two were spotted together during the White House Correspondents party, and they were dating at that time.
Wagner's husband Kass used to work at the White House as the Senior Advisor for Nutrition Policy in the course of Barack Obama's presidency. He was also the Executive Director and an Assistant Chef throughout the former First Lady Michelle Obama's Let's Move! campaign. Kass served the white house until late 2014.

The D.C native Wagner met her current husband Kass in the early 2012 and began the relationship by the end of the year. The couple was quite protective about their secret affair as Kass reported his relationship status to be single during an interview although the couple was seeing each other at that time.
After dating for over a year, the lovely pair got engaged in September 2013. At the time, Wagner was the host of her show, 'Now with Alex Wagner' on MSNBC. The news of the couple's engagement was a bombshell to the media as there was only a bit of tittle-tattle regarding the couple affair.
