Her Husband’s Life

Lee is a married woman who runs a lovely household with her husband and twin daughters.

The 46-year-old anchor, on the other hand, is extremely discreet about her personal life, keeping details about her spouse and children out of the public eye. Her husband’s name, however, is Ben Kallo, according to Distractify.

Lee was also on maternity leave from December to April of this year. In the meanwhile, on December 8, 2019, she gave birth to twins, a boy and a girl.

On March 25, 2020, the Power Lunch host took to Twitter to share a photo of her children, informing her followers that she had been busy with her children.

Lee is of mixed Chinese and American ancestry

On November 4, 1974, in Great Neck, New York, the anchor of CNBC’s Fast Money was born. She is of mixed Chinese and American ancestry.

Her grandfather, who had Chinese ancestors, moved to the United States with his wife and children. Lee’s father then married a native American and welcomed her into their family.

“I went to Chinese school on weekends, but my parents really wanted my sister, brother, and me to assimilate, which was usual at the time,” Lee said in a May 2015 interview with the Asia Society on her childhood and Chinese ancestry. “On the down side, my Chinese is practically non-existent.”
