So, without further ado, let us delve into Antonia Losafo’s personal life.
Where was Antonia Lofaso born?
Antonia Marie Lofaso, a French Culinary Institute graduate, was born in New York City on November 23, 1976. She has also worked as a manager at Justin’s, one of Sean Combs’ restaurants.
Is Antonia Lofaso Married? Relationship
Despite the fact that being a busy chef doesn’t allow for much personal time, Antonia Lofaso has managed to maintain a successful relationship with her husband, Heavy D. However, the timeline of their dating affair has remained hidden from the public eye.
Even though the couple did not marry, they had a husband-wife relationship. They also had a daughter in 2000, whom they named Xea.
After being blessed with their bundle of joy, they made every effort to manage their hectic schedules in order to give her adequate attention.
Unfortunately, Antonia had to endure the tragic loss of her husband, Heavy, in 2011, nearly a decade later. Some sources claim that his death was caused by his illness, a pulmonary embolism, but Antonia has not confirmed this.
Antonia was heartbroken after losing her husband, but she refused to give up for the sake of her child.
Antonio Lofaso’s Helpful Daughter
Heavy D, their loving husband, and father, will live on in their hearts forever. Xea, who is 22 years old, posted a photo on Instagram to remember her late father.
The mother and daughter, on the other hand, have a wonderful relationship. She posted a photo of herself and her girlfriend on Instagram in February 2017.
In a 2015 interview with Mom, when asked how she balances time between her work and home lives, Antonia stated that she values quality time and enjoys spending it with her daughter on vacations.
“The only way that I find balance is the constant reminder that it isn’t the quantity of time but the quality of time. Spending four days in Mammoth with my daughter over Valentine’s Day weekend and snowboarding with her—it’s that kind of experience”
“As soon as we step into Los Angeles, I was like, “Gotta go!” But, when we were snowboarding it was like an excursion together and we have these hilarious fun stories to talk about, and we have us tumbling down a double black diamond that was totally caught on her GoPro. It’s like that, the quality of time spent together where the balance comes.”
The 45-year-old took to Instagram on her daughter’s 21st birthday to wish her a happy birthday. The post included a grown-up girl selfie with her curls and a heartwarming caption that reads,
“Light the world on fire baby girl…… happy 21st birthday XEA. I used to tell her when she was young that she was mine , every part of her I grew so therefore she was mine. XEA is hers and hers alone. The most confident and determined chicken little I’ve ever met. Command a room. Speak up. Listen above all. Love above all.”
She then revealed some incredible information. It turns out that Xena is interested in music. IDK, Xena’s song as a lyricist was released on February 25, 2020.
Antonia does not appear to be involved in any further dating affairs since her husband’s death and appears to be living a happy life as a single mother with her daughter.
How did Antonia Lofaso start her Professional Career?
Antonia went on to work at Wolfgang Puck’s “Spago” and “Foxtail” restaurants in Los Angeles. However, the stunning chef gained widespread attention after competing in the Bravo series Top Chef Season 4. She later appeared on Top Chef: All-Stars and the Top Chef Duels spin-off.
Lofaso has been known as an executive chef since then, and she quickly ventured into the restaurant business with “Black Market” in Studio City, California.
Similarly, Antonia published The Busy Mom’s Cookbook: 100 Recipes for Quick, Delicious, Home-Cooked Meals in August 2012.
She has also appeared in reality shows such as Cutthroat Kitchen and Restaurant Startup, among others.
She is a businesswoman in addition to her cooking career. Antonia is a co-owner and executive chef at several Los Angeles restaurants, including “Black Market Liquor Bar” and “Scopa Italian Roots.”
We have reason to believe that her growing success is just the beginning of her journey. In addition, she hosts surprise pop-up eatery events on occasion to meet the demands of her fans. Consider the Latin-inspired power luncheon she hosted on August 24, 2018, in Los Angeles.
She also hosts Save The Leftovers, which debuted as a 10 p.m. special on February 24, 2021. In addition to hosting a show, she was the head judge on Guy’s Chance Of A Lifetime.
She has also co-hosted a Food Network show called The Julia Child Challenge with Michael Voltaggio.
If you didn’t already know, the Cutthroat Kitchen star takes her job very seriously, so much so that she considers her coworkers to be family. She boasted on one of her Instagram posts (now deleted):
Couldn’t have imagined what this life has given me. So grateful today and every day for you @xeamyers my family, our health and happiness. All of this life’s work and love. Cheers to my work family!
Similarly, cooking is one entity on Earth she would marry in an instant.
