Barbara Renee Wolf and Kenny Albert’s Love Story: The Beginning

Sports played a huge part in the couple’s meeting and the commencement of their romance. Their story started in 1994 when the Rangers lost in Game Five of the Rangers-Canucks Final series on NHL. Because of the loss, Kenny did not have to attend any after-party and instead went to meet his friend Jerry at Barbara’s apartment.

Having been introduced there, Kenny and Barbara went to a Knicks-Rockets game in the following days since he had an extra ticket. The commentator mentioned that for him, their first date was Game Three of the 1994 NBA Finals between the New York Knicks and Houston Rockets.

Meanwhile, Barbara didn’t see it that way, and the timing of their first date is different when you ask them. However, the soulmates eventually fell in love and moved forward in claiming the other as their partner for life.

Now, the two have spent almost thirty years in each other’s companionship and have built a little family for themselves. However, the sportscaster is mostly busy with his hectic job, and sometimes, his significant other does not even know where he is working.

In the process, Barbara ensures that her better half takes care of himself, especially taking remedies for his throat. Furthermore, because their names sound similar, Kenny often hilariously refers to his wife and himself as ‘Barbie and Ken.’

While enjoying their conjugal life together, the couple has also raised two beautiful daughters. They had their first child, Amanda, on October 4, 1999. Their younger daughter, Sydney, was born on January 27, 2003.
