It’s been almost 20 years since the first season of American Idol, and its first winner, Kelly Clarkson, has done a lot with her life since then. The “Since U Been Gone” singer has won three Grammys, is a coach on The Voice and is now the host of her own talk show. On Wednesday’s (Jan. 4) episode, she invited fellow season one Idol alum Justin Guarini to talk about their time on the show. Clarkson said, “I feel like I have caffeine in me naturally, so it was really my game.” Guarini replied, “It was crazy! I just wanted more and more.”
If you are unfamiliar, Justin Guarini is an American singer, songwriter, and actor. In the first season of American Idol, he was the runner-up. Since then, he has put out two studio albums, and two EPs, and performed on Broadway and on TV. He also co-hosts Idol Wrap and Idol Tonight and produced his own album, Stranger Things Have Happened, through his own company, Justice Entertainment, Ltd. He also played leading roles in musicals like Woman on the Verge of a Nervous Breakdown, Rent, and Chicago. In this article, we, talk about Justin’s personal life including his wife, Reina Capodici and their family.
Meet Justin Guarini’s Wife, Reina Capodici
Reina Capodici was born on January 28, 1982, in Pennsylvania. Reports say that her mother taught her husband English classes in high school. But we don’t know who her parents are either. She was born in the United States and is of mixed Syrian and Italian descent.
Reina got her diploma from Central Bucks East High School. She and her husband Justin Guarini went to the same public school in Doylestown, Pennsylvania.
Justin And Reina Have A Happy Family With Their Three Kids
Justin and Reina got engaged in December while Guarini was filming for the American Idol Experience ride at Disney’s EPCOT Center in Orlando. Reina’s makeup was done by their good friend Ashley Gadille. Since middle school, Reina knew Justin. They were engaged for a long time, and they dated for three years before getting married.
Justin and Reina’s wedding was on December 26, 2009. People magazine wrote about the ceremony, and it was voted “Wedding of the Year” by their readers. The simple wedding was led by a female minister from the Universalist Church. The couple wrote their own vows and said them during the ceremony. Guarini’s stepdaughter Lola, who is 4 years old, spoke during the ceremony. The Vitamin String Quartet played music by bands like Radiohead, Paramore, and Peter Gabriel.
Kimberly Caldwell, Guarini’s co-host on the TV Guide Network’s Idol Tonight, tells PEOPLE that Justin is one of the people who deserve happiness and love the most. “I’m sure he’ll be a great husband.”
The musician Justin lives with his wife and their three kids. On April 26, 2011, Reina gave birth to her first son. He was given the name Willian Neko Bell Guarini. The youngest son is also named Asher Orion Guarini. February 25, 2013, was his birthday. Most likely, both kids are at school right now.
His ex-girlfriend gave birth to Justin’s daughter. Lola Mae, his daughter, stays with him and the rest of his family. They are all very close to each other.
