Quickly jumping in, fellow judge Howie Mandel, 67, jokingly declared, “I’m busy.” Sofia continued to share her insights, describing the attributes she values in a potential partner:
“Someone healthy, someone handsome, someone who has a great sense of humor.” Howie playfully interjected once more, humorously exclaiming, “I’m married!” Sofia’s criteria are rounded off by the essential quality of self-satisfaction, as she stated: ‘Someone who is satisfied with himself, that’s it’.

Their love story took center stage on November 21, 2015 when they exchanged vows in a dreamy ceremony in Palm Beach, Florida. The captivating story, however, did not lead to the expansion of their family with children.
