Christopher Kimball married Melissa Baldino in 2013. The two met in 2002, and Kimball proposed to her shortly after his divorce with his previous wife was final.
Kimball is founder and president of the America's Test Kitchen company, and Baldino is the executive producer of its shows. The company produces radio and television shows, and publishes Cooks Illustrated magazine. Kimball also serves as host of the show "America's Test Kitchen" on public television. He is 25 years older than Baldino, but the two say they do not think much about the difference in their ages.
The two met when Baldino interviewed to be Kimball's assistant, according to the New York Times. She didn't get the job immediately, but was called back in and subsequently hired after the woman who took the position resigned. Baldino rose to the role of producer of the "America's Test Kitchen" television and radio shows, and she and Kimball said they became close friends during that time. Baldino said she began to realize her true feelings about Kimball after he officially separated from his wife in 2010.
Kimball had been divorced twice before marrying Baldino. He and his previous wife, Adrienne, have four children together and were married in 1987.
