Reinvigorating the expansive domesticity of the household by giving it a unique makeover, Veronica Valencia Hughes has become famous for her stunning renovations. In the latest iteration of HGTV’s home improvement reality show ‘Revealed,’ Veronica takes a fresh approach to home renovation by focusing on her clients’ ancestry and heritage. The show does not just factor in the likes and dislikes of the clientele but also dives into genealogy that helps incorporate artifacts and designs visceral to the individual. Besides watching Veronica revitalize a location, viewers are intrigued by her personality and want to learn more about the host’s life. So, if you’re wondering about the same, look no further because we’ve got all the answers!
Veronica Valencia Hughes’ Husband
The California-based designer would never have met her husband, Kristopher Hughes if it wasn’t for her career. Fresh out of design school, she bagged a job on ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ after her childhood best friend Lauren connected her with Paige Hemmis, a designer and TV host for the show at the time.
When Veronica flew to New York to work with the Emmy Award-winning executive producers, she also happened to chance upon her would-be husband, Kristopher, who happened to be the show’s production manager at the time. While their romance bloomed behind the scenes, the duo had a decision to make after the show ended. Convinced in her love for Kristopher, Veronica took a leap of faith and asked him to come to Los Angeles, promising they could work on a show together.
After moving to Los Angeles, the duo used their skills and established their interior design service, The Design Hunter, in 2013. Since then, they have collectively worked on numerous renovations by creating spaces that evoke a sense of belonging and warmth instead of a mere place where one can cohabit and live. While ‘Extreme Makeover: Home Edition’ allowed Veronica to meet the love of her life, it even earned her lifelong friendships.
Veronica’s co-hosts on ‘Revealed’ and friends from her days on her old show include David Bohler, Tommy Rouse, and Joshua Smith. The trio is close to her and Kristopher even today. Not just this, Tommy even officiated the couple’s wedding in 2017. Staying true to their uniqueness, Veronica and Kristopher tied the knot in Malibu, California, in a forest under a canopy of giant redwoods.
As successful firm owners, Veronica and Kristopher often find themselves enveloped in work and struggle to spend time together. With the former’s legion of credits that span over 600+ TV home renovations, the duo has admittedly found it hard to make time for each other and go on dates. Even so, they try to create more memories together whenever they have the liberty and do not forget to appreciate one another differently.
Veronica Valencia Hughes’ Children
Apart from keeping up with her long list of work commitments, Veronica is a devoted mother to her children. Her and Kristopher’s eldest son, Hunter, was born in 2018. The duo welcomed their daughter River two years later during the pandemic. While the Mexican and Native American designer is consistently surrounded by work, she ensures she takes out enough time for her two kids. Over the years, they have become a support system for Veronica, and she constantly gushes about her adoration and affection for the two on Instagram.
In an interview with HGTV, Veronica revealed that her children are her biggest supporters. When she was set to appear on ‘Rock the Block,’ she was extremely nervous and visibly scared to come in front of the cameras. However, her eldest picked up on that and reassured his mother that she should not worry because the audience would undoubtedly like her because she is fun, amazing, and a good mom. Not just this, when she was pregnant with her daughter, her son would ensure that she always took her vitamins on time.
As such, in addition to bringing rejuvenating homes on screen, Veronica is a loving mother who regularly expresses gratitude for her husband and children on social media. Naturally, we hope the HGTV star can create more beautiful memories with her husband and children and excel professionally.
