Who is Romy Lauer, Matt Lauer’s Daughter?

Matt Lauer was a highly respected name in the television world, best known as the host of the show “Today”, among other endeavors. However, his career fell apart in 2017, when he was charged with sexual harassment and fired from NBC. His daughter, Romy is still in school, and is famous only through her father.

So, do you want to find out more about Romy Lauer, from her childhood years to most recent events in her life, both personal and professional? If yes, then stay with us for the length of the article, as we introduce you to Matt Lauer’s daughter.

Romy Lauer Wiki: Age, Childhood, and Education

Romy Layer was born on the 2nd October 2003 and is the middle child of Matt Lauer and his second wife, Dutch model, Annette Roque. She has two siblings, both brothers, an older one Jack, and a younger one, named Thijs. Unfortunately, there is no further information about Romy, except that she is in high school, but it hasn’t been made available which school she is attending. Hopefully, the Lauer family and Romy herself, start sharing more information from her formative years.

Career and Net Worth

In regards to her career, Romy is yet to decide what she wants to do in her life as she is in her teens and still attends high school. For now, there is no information about her affinity towards any particular career path, but being a daughter of a successful TV host father, and a successful model mother, she might follow in some of her parents’ footsteps. Maybe you are now reading of a future Victoria’s Secret model or NBC host? Romy is yet to earn her glory and fortune, but as she shares her parents’ wealth, according to reports, she has a share of their wealth of over $60 million.

Romy Lauer Personal Life, Dating

What do you know about the personal life of Romy? Well, she isn’t one of those celebrities that tend to share all the information about their personal life. In fact, she is quite the opposite of that and has hidden all the major information about herself from the media. However, according to sources, at the age of 16 Romy is single, and for now only focused on her education.

Romy Lauer’s father, Matt Lauer

Now that we have shared all there is to know about Romy, let’s share some information about her father, Matt Lauer. Born Matthew Todd Lauer on the 30th December 1957, in New York City USA, he is the son of Jay Robert Lauer, who was a bicycle-company executive, and his wife Marilyn, a boutique owner. His childhood wasn’t one from the books, as his parents divorced when he was still a child. When it comes to his education, he enrolled at Ohio University following his high school matriculation, but dropped out in 1979 as he wanted to focus entirely on his career, for which he believed that he didn’t need a degree – however, 19 years later he returned to finish his undergraduate studies.

Matt’s career started in the late ‘70s, when he became a part of WOWK-TV, headquartered in Huntington, West Virginia, assuming the position of the producer for the noon newscast. The same year he made his first on-screen appearance, hosting the news at 6 pm and 11 pm. However, he decided to change his job, and spent the ‘80s working for several stations, including WNEW-TV, WWOR-TV, USA Network, WNBC, and others.

NBC Career

As he became a part of WNBC, it gave him the possibility to move to the main channel, NBC. After a couple of years, he made his first on-air appearance on NBC, as he was chosen as a substitute for Margaret Larson.

Two years more, and Matt was promoted to official news anchor on “The Today Show”. In 1997 he became the co-anchor, and served in that position for 20 years, during which time he became one of the most prominent TV hosts, and interviewed numerous notable people,  from government officials, Vladimir Putin, royal family members Princes William and Harry, and celebrities including Charlie Sheen, during which interview the famed actor spoke for the first time about his HIV diagnosis. However, his career crumbled down in 2017 when he was accused of  sexual harassment by several of his colleagues from the NBC. Since then, he has withdrawn from the media and has deleted all of his social media accounts.

Matt Lauer Personal Life and Net Worth

Matt doesn’t like to share details from his private life, but when you are as popular as he is, it is hard to keep everything to yourself. Matt has one failed marriage behind him; he was married to TV producer Nancy Alspaugh from 1982 until 1989, but the two didn’t have children. He met his second wife on a blind date, which was organized by Maria Santoro; just six months passed after their first meeting, and the two married in a wedding ceremony held in Bridgehampton, New York on the 3rd October 1998.

Their marriage entered a crisis before Thijs was born, but they sorted out their differences, and are now apparently enjoying their life together. Annette hasn’t made any comments following Matt’s sexual harassment controversy. Matt has had a successful career, which has increased his wealth to a large degree. According to authoritative sources, his wealth is now estimated at $60 million. The family lives in the Hamptons, in a house valued at more than $30 million.

1(2013) Early on, I had five jobs in a row where I was either fired or canceled. One or two times you can say, "They don't know what they're talking about. They don't know talent when they see it." After the fifth time, if you don't look in the mirror and ask yourself some really serious questions about whether you're cut out to be in this business, you're an idiot.
2(2013) I've always liked the idea of walking into a cocktail party where there are different people and finding some connection with almost everybody in the room.
3(2013) I don't find anything comes out of getting in someone's face during an interview and screaming... When you have a sense that emotions are being used to manipulate, you have to jump in and cut it off. But when there's real, honest emotion coming out, like when Tom Cruise got worked up over his belief system on antidepressant drugs, you let that go because there's no replacing that reality. If you were to cut that off, you'd be doing your viewers a disservice. My job was to stay out of the way.
4(2013) I was always more interested in asking people about themselves than I was telling them about me.
5"I get letters from women, and they say, 'I love your Roman nose.' If I weren't on TV and I walked past that same woman, she'd go, 'Did you see the beak on that guy?' " --People, May 1994.
