Mossimo Giannulli – The Life Story Of Lori Loughlin’s Husband and His Kids

If the name, Lori Loughlin, was unknown to the mainstream American audience, that has changed since the college admission scandal that rocked several celebrities, including Lori and her husband, Mossimo Giannulli. While Lori had a semblance of fame through her role in the Netflix show, Fuller House, her husband was relatively unknown, sparking curiosity about the identity of the co-conspirator in the Loughlin family in the college admissions scandal.

In this article, we gathered everything you need to know about Mossimo Giannulli, including his background, career, and his daughters who were at the center of the scandal.

How Old is Lori Loughlin’s Husband – Mossimo Giannulli?

Massimo Giannulli was born on the 4th of June, 1963, in Southern California. He was born to Gene Giannulli, who was an architect and to Nancy Giannulli, a homemaker. His birth name is Massimo, but at the suggestion of his first-grade teacher, he changed his name to Mossimo.

It is unknown if Massimo is an only child, but he was raised in Encino, California, where he attended high school and completed his basic education. After completing his primary education, Mossimo Giannulli enrolled in college, the University of Southern California, at the age of 21 to study business and architecture, following in the footsteps of his father.

However, Lori Loughlin’s husband had another dream, and after three years in college, he dropped out to pursue his passion as a fashion designer.

With a loan of $100,000 from his father, he started his company, Mossimo, a clothing company targeted at mid-range customers in 1986, in Balboa Island, Newport Beach. Within one year of establishing the company, he grossed over $1 million in revenue, and in the second year, it increased to $4 million.

Eight years after he established the company, Mossimo Giannulli has created a multi-million-dollar clothing company worth over $200 million, having expanded his product catalog to sweaters, knits, and sweatshirts. He also sold women’s clothing and tailored suits for men and had more than 1,700 stores across the US, with an additional 600 stores across the globe.

A decade after he started his company, Mossimo Giannulli took his company public and became the youngest chairman of a company listed on the New York Stock Exchange at the age of 32. And although his blazing success with the company did not last, he landed successfully on his feet by selling the company to Iconix Brand Group for a reported $135 million.

Before selling the company to Iconix in 2006, he engineered a multi-product licensing agreement deal with the chain store, Target, that fetched him millions in income per year. The arrangement lasted for 17 years, ending in 2017.

His Marriage to Lori Loughlin

In 1997, at the age of 34, Massimo Giannulli eloped and got married to Fuller House actress Lori Loughlin. The two of them met in 1995 shortly after she was separated from the investment banker, Michael R. Burns. A year after the divorce was completed in 1996, he became Lori Loughlin’s husband after they eloped with her to Newport Beach on Thanksgiving Day. They have given birth to two children since then – Olivia Jade and Isabella Rose, and Lori Loughlin is also a stepmother to Massimo’s son, Gianni Giannulli.

Who Are His Children?

Massimo Giannulli has three children – a son and two daughters. His first child is a son named Gianni, whom he fathered from a previous relationship. Gianni Giannulli is the founder of the Smart Food Co, a food & beverage company. The company is based in Los Angeles.

His daughter, Olivia Jade, is the most popular among his three children. She is a social media celebrity and YouTuber with a huge following. Her YouTube channel, OliviaJadeBeauty, is a lifestyle channel with more than one million subscribers. She also has more than one million followers on Instagram, @oliviajade. She was born on the 28th of September 1999.

His second daughter, Isabella Rose, is an aspiring actress who has made appearances in a couple of TV programs, such as Alone Together, and Every Christmas Has a Story, which was her acting debut. Like her sister, she also has a substantial social media presence with more than 282,000 followers on her Instagram page, @bella.
