Jim Acosta knows how to handle the media. A media personality himself, Jim, has mastered the techniques of avoiding paparazzi as he always succeeds in staying away from the media. He loves to maintain his personal life a secret, and in doing so, he is rarely seen with his wife in public, so we don't have a picture of the couple together.

The couple looked happy together, but their happiness didn't stay with them till the end, as they decided to get separated in 2017 after a long 24 years of marriage. According to sources, the couple got divorced in a quiet proceeding in early 2017. It was reported that they filed for divorce in Charles County District Court on July 6, 2017. 

The couple had three children together; two daughters and a son.
