Who is Rebecca Olson Gupta’s husband? Their relationship, marriage and kids
Rebecca Olson Gupta has been married to Sanjay Gupta since 2004, and they now have three kids. Sanjay Gupta was born on 23rd October 1969 in Novi, Michigan, to parents Subhash and Damyanti Gupta, who migrated to the US from India before his birth.
He is now a well-known neurosurgeon, who attended Medical School at the University of Michigan, from which he obtained his masters degree in 1993, and then studied neuroscience also at the University of Michigan. He completed his internship in Memphis, and presently he is working at Grady Memorial Hospital. He is also Chief Medical Correspondent for CNN. Rebecca Olson met her partner in Michigan. They soon started dating, and quickly became engaged. They didn’t need much time to come to a conclusion that they were perfect for each other – Sanjay wrote a long love poem to Rebecca, which was actually ended with a proposal.
While Rebecca was reading it, he was apparently already on his knee, which gesture really amazed her, and of course she said “yes”. Today, this poem is framed and it is on the wall of their family house. They both remember this moment very frequently and Sanjay says that he was quite anxious and afraid that she might say “no”. He revealed this story about the proposal six years after the wedding in an interview that he gave to the magazine INSTYLE.
The couple then planned their wedding – Rebecca chose the place, and Sanjay selected the wedding rituals in the Hindu tradition, and their wedding organizer who made sure that everything was according to their wishes was Tara Guerard. They married in Shell House at Ashley Hall in Charleston at a private school for girls on 15th of May 2004. Since they were following Hindu tradition, the bride wore Lehenga and a choli and the groom a sherwani (traditional Hindu clothing). Some of the Hindu rituals that they followed are: taking vows and going around the fire which is called pheré, applying the red sindoor on the bride’s head or filling of maang, applying turmeric to both the bride and groom, or as it is called in Hindi haldi rasam.
