The wife of Fox News personality Jesse Watters has filed for divorce after learning her husband had an affair with a 25-year-old producer working on his show.


According to the New York Daily News, Noelle Watters -- the mother of the couple's twin daughters -- filed for the separation back in October.

The report states that the controversial host, who was briefly taken off the air by the conservative news network for inappropriate comments about Ivanka Trump, admitted to the affair at his place of employment.

According to the NYDN,  Watters, 39, went to his superiors at the network and disclosed his relationship with associate producer Emma DiGiovine shortly after his wife filed papers.

DiGiovine was immediately transferred to “The Ingraham Angle,” with host Laura Ingraham, claims the network.

“Within 24 hours of Jesse Watters voluntarily reporting to the Chief of Human Resources in November 2017 that he was in a consensual relationship with a woman on his staff, management met with both parties and a decision was made for the woman to be transferred to work on another program on the network where she currently remains,” Fox News aid in a statement.

According to the report Watters and DiGiovine are still dating.
