Is there any bad blood between Isabella and her journalist father? Why does she remain low-profile? We have brought you answers to everything that could be found about the famous daughter.

Key Takeaways:

  • Isballe Holmes Rivera prefers to live her life without having to put her entire life on display.
  • Born on November 7, 1992, she is the daughter of Geraldo Rivera & his 4th wife, Cynthia Cruickshank Dyer.

  • Isabella has 4 siblings, one blood-related sister, Simone, and 3 half-sblilngs: Gabriel, Cruz, and Solita.

Where Is Geraldo Rivera’s Daughter, , Now?

According to online address directories, Isabella lives in New York City, New York. However, she defers from opening up about her professional and personal life. As reported, she is a graduate of New York University, so it’s possible she may have landed a decent-paying job.

Is She Into The Journalism?

Particularly, there are no answers if Isabella Holmes is actively pursuing her career in journalism. But as reported, she worked as a CNN producer and later joined Fox News. Her father stated her as a “#FoxNews colleague” on his Twitter in November 2016, while wishing her 24th birthday.

Afterward, no mention of her career path came. So, it’s a two-way claim if she has continued her career following her dad’s footsteps or took a turn to another venture.

Did Get Married?

While her elder brothers are married & have a family of their own, many wonder if Rivera, in her 30s, has also settled down now. However, there is no confirmation whether she exchanged vows or not.

Most probably, she is not married. Why & how do we tell? Well, her father, Geraldo, barely misses to mention any family members on his Twitter (now X), and often mentions her brothers’ wives & their kids. And if there would be any, he would’ve shared anything regarding his daughter and her milestones for everyone to see.

So, guesses are she may not have a husband, that’s why the patriarch Rivera doesn’t mention her conjugal life. Even if not official, it’s somewhat convincing though!

Daughter Of Geraldo And His Ex-Wife, Cynthia

Born on November 2, 1992, Rivera is the daughter of Geraldo Rivera and Cynthia Cruickshank Dyer. She is 3rd child of 5 of her journalist father, and the eldest daughter among 3. As of 2024, Isabella is 31 years old.

She grew up in a doting environment, however, the happy familial moment didn’t last forever. When she was 8, her parents divorced.

Isabella’s Mother, Cynthia, Was Geraldo’s Fourth Wife

Cynthia Cruickshank Dyer is very famously known to be the fourth wife of Geraldo Rivera. The former couple met while she was a young producer from Marion, Massachusetts. Geraldo Rivera was still married at the time when the former couple fell in love after meeting at work.

They got married on July 11, 1987, and had two beautiful girls.

Dyer’s mother had even warned her many times to not get into a relationship with a man who was already married. Cynthia had a hard time when they first got together but there was nothing she couldn’t handle.

Downfall Of Relationship & Divorce

Isabella’s mother wanted more children after having two daughters, however, it became hard for her to conceive. Cynthia and Geraldo tried six times to get pregnant through IVF but every pregnancy ended in a miscarriage.

Many had speculated he was abusive and would not treat his wife right. People also have been saying, the only reason they got pregnant six times was because Geraldo wanted a son. This was speculated to be the reason for their divorce after 13 years of marriage. They went their separate ways in 2000.

Rivera’s Father Married 5 Times: Who Are His Wives?

Yes, you heard it right! But it might not come as a surprise to you. Gerald has walked the aisle 5 times. His first marriage was with a woman named Linda Coblentz, they were married in 1965. The two of them were only married for 4 years as they called it quits in 1969. There was no record of any children during their courtship.

  • Edith Vonnegut (second wife): Vonnegut was his second wife, the former duo got married in 1971, however, their relationship didn’t last long as well. They were only together for 3 years as they separated in 1974. While they were together they did not have any children. Edith has since then remarried. She got married to John Sqibb in 1985 and has two sons and they are grandparents of three little kids
  • Sheryl Raymond (third wife):  Sheryl was Geraldo’s third wife. She was known to also be a producer from ABC. They married in 1976 & remained together for 7 years before divorcing in 1984. The reason for their divorce could’ve been infidelity on the part of Geraldo as he and Cynthia started seeing each other when Geraldo was still in a marital union with Sheryl. They got divorced in 1984.
  • Erica Michelle Levy (fifth & current wife):  Erica might just be his longest relationship to date. The duo have been married for 20 years as of 2023. They got married in 2003. When the news of their relationship broke, everyone was highly criticizing Geraldo for not sticking up to one woman. Erica and Geraldo have a daughter together named Solita Liliana Rivera.

Gabriel Miguel Rivera

Geraldo’s oldest child, Gabriel, on the other hand, has regularly been in trending news. Gabriel has recently been in the news. He rose to prominence after declaring that he was embarrassed about his father’s contentious statements about Trayvon Martin and his hoodie.

He prefers a tranquil existence away from social media. Gabriel keeps the majority of his personal information online as a gigantic question mark. As reported, he is the father of a son named, Desmond Samuel Rivera, with his wife, Deborah Rish.

Cruz Grant Rivera

The second son of Geraldo, Cruz, remains a mystery figure to many. Nothing about his professional career is out. The second child of the Rivera family has been in a tangle with the US government as well.

Cruz was arrested for reportedly choking his ex-girlfriend, Meghan Burkle. When she arrived at his apartment to pick up her belongings after they called it quits. Cruz is said to have jumped on her, slamming her into a bed, trapping her there from behind in a chokehold, and nearly knocking her out.

He was arrested in May 2018, on the charge of domestic violence, but got released a day later, after he agreed to the plea. Now, he is the father of three with his wife, Lauren McCormack.

Solita Lilliana Rivera

Solita (b. August 2, 2005) is the youngest of the second-generation Rivera family. She is the child of Geraldo and the woman he has been married to for 20 years, Erica Rivera. Solita has been participating in debate competitions in her school and she even is a published author. She has written a book called Restrict which is a poetic narrative.

Geraldo Rivera Got Fired From The ABC News

Isabella’s father is a well-known journalist, lawyer, author, and political expert who formerly worked as a TV host. He was a host on the tabloid talk program “Geraldo” from 1987 to 1998. His popularity grew after the completion of the live television special “The Mystery of Al Capone’s Vaults” in 1986. In addition, he hosted the newsmagazine show “Geraldo at Large.” In addition, instead of anchoring At Large, he hosted Geraldo Rivera Reports periodically.

Around October 1985, ABC’s Roone Arledge refused to air a report regarding Marilyn Monroe’s ties to John F. Kennedy and Robert F. Kennedy written by Sylvia Chase for 20/20. Rivera openly questioned Arledge’s journalistic ethics, claiming that his friendship with the Kennedy family had compelled him to spike the piece; as a result, Rivera was fired.
