Blue Bloods actress Jennifer Esposito is engaged to her business partner boyfriend, Louis Dowler. She confirmed the news while appearing on Katie Couric’s talk show on Thursday.
Dowler lent Esposito money to open Jennifer’s Way, a gluten-free bakery in New York City. Esposito, 41, came up with the idea after she was diagnosed with celiac disease. She talked about the venture with Couric.
“He wanted no part of it in the beginning,” Esposito said. “He said, ‘I don’t know anything about a bakery.’ And I said, ‘I don’t either! But we’re gonna do this. I’m gonna do this. And if you want to see me, that’s where I’m gonna be, on 10th Street.’”
Esposito was previously married to Bradley Cooper and engaged to Australian tennis player Mark Philippoussis. Dowler, a model, previously dated Kate Winslet.
