Lupe Izzo was born Lupe Marinez, the brunette is originally from Texas, but grew up in East Lansing, Michigan.
For their first date, Tom invited Lupe to a Michigan State game; it certainly worked because the couple tied the knot in 1992 at St. Thomas Aquinas Parish in East Lansing. Tom had popped the question in front of their families during Christmas.
Together they share two children, a daughter and a son. Lupe Izzo first gave birth to daughter Raquel in 1994. A Few years later, they decided to adopt their son, Steven –who is six-years younger than his sister.
Raquel Izzo who goes by ‘Rocky’ attended Michigan State University where she studied media management. She is currently in a relationship with Matthew McDonald.
