No matter where you’re from or how old you are, you’ve probably heard of Matt Damon. However, this famous Hollywood actor tries to keep his life – and marriage – away from the paparazzi. Do you know who his wife, Luciana Barroso, is and how many children they have together?
Early life, education and career
Luciana Bozan Barroso was born on July 31, 1976 in Salta, Argentina. When she was young, her father, who worked as an insurance agent, and her mother, who was a housekeeper, divorced, so she was raised by her grandparents.
Her family is originally from Italy but moved to Argentina before her parents were born so they could pursue a better life.
From an early age she was interested in art, especially literature. While in high school, she aspired to become an artist. Years later, she graduated with a Bachelor of Arts degree from a local university.
Luciana’s career ambition changed over time, so she became a flight attendant.
Luciana met her Arbello Barroso sometime during her career as a flight attendant. The couple got married soon after and welcomed their daughter who they have named Alexia.
This caused Luciana to put her career on hold so she could dedicate her life to being a good parent, and the family moved to Miami, Florida, USA.
However, in 2004, the couple divorced for unknown reasons and Luciana got custody of Alexia. She and Barroso remained good friends and that was the case no drama involved in their divorce. Even before their divorce, Luciana started working as a bartender so she could earn enough money to take care of her daughter.
Married to Matt Damon
Luciana met the famous Hollywood actor Matt Damon in 2003, when he was filming in Miami for the movie “Stuck on You”.
Damon is famous for his roles in blockbusters like ‘Good Will Hunting’, ‘Saving Private Ryan’ and ‘The Talented Mr. Ripley’.
Damon, accompanied by several of his co-workers, walked into Crowbar where Luciana was working, and the bartender soon caught his eye. They began dating after Luciana’s divorce, and Damon proposed in September 2005. They tied the knot four months later, at 9e December 2005. The wedding ceremony was hosted at the Manhattan Marriage Bureau and held privately, as both disliked public attention. The only guests were their close friends and family.
Their first daughter was born in June 2006, whom the couple named Isabella. In August 2008, they had their second daughter, Gia Zavala Damon, and two years later, they had a third daughter, Stella. The couple also has custody of Luciana’s first daughter, Alexia, making them parents of four girls.
As of May 2020, the couple lives in Manhattan, New York City, USA.
Luciana Barroso appeared together with her husband multiple TV showssuch as “Inside the Actors Studio”, “Extra with Billy Bush” and “Entertainment Tonight”.
Both Luciana and her husband are very private persons. They avoid Hollywood scandals and can only be seen on cameras at red carpet events such as movie premieres.
Arbello Barroso has a good relationship with the couple, despite Damon having custody of his daughter Alexia. He often visits the Damon family so that he can spend time with his child.
Alexia aspires to become an actress. In 2011, she made a brief appearance in a family movie, “We Bought a Zoo” alongside her adoptive father. As a child, she attended a local private school in New York and loved playing soccer.
In 2019, Matt Damon tattooed the names of all four of their daughters on his arms.
In a interview, Damon stated that he and his family received many gifts when their first daughter, Isabella, was born. However, he said that because they don’t really need anything, all these gifts were given away to people who have less. “It’s hard to figure out how to give them perspective,” he said. “It is sometimes a source of tension in the family.”
Through her second husband, Luciana is the daughter-in-law of actors Nancy Carlsson-Paige and Kent Damon.
“Stuck on You,” the movie that brought Luciana and Damon together, was supposed to be shot in Hawaii, but the location later changed to Miami.
Damon revealed that he never liked going out, but his friends managed to persuade him to join the night he met Luciana.
The couple’s list of family friends includes big Hollywood names like Ben Affleck and George Clooney.
In 2013, almost ten years after their marriage, the couple renewed their vows. This time the ceremony was grand and lavish and many notable people appeared, such as Jimmy Kimmel.
The couple claims that they are never apart for more than two weeks and that spending a lot of time together is their key to a successful marriage.
Luciana is not active on any social media platform.
Luciana’s exact net worth is not known as she is quite a private person but sources indicate that it is less than $1 million. However, her husband’s net worth is estimated at about $170 million as of May 2020, most of it earned from his acting career spanning over 20 years.
Luciana is 1.73 m tall and weighs about 65 kg. Her exact body measurements are not known, but she has a slim figure. Her hair is dark brown and her eyes are also brown. At red carpet events, she is usually dressed elegantly and modestly, with many praising her for her style and fashion choices.
