Meet Mike Goodnough, Valerie Bertinelli Boyfriend

Actress Valerie Bertinelli may have kept her boyfriend’s identity secret for a month, according to PageSix, but Mike Goodnough is making a splash.

After her divorce, Valerie told PEOPLE in April 2024 that she had no intention of looking for love again, but that changed when Goodnough entered her life.

“I was supposed to die with my six cats and my dog and very happily live the rest of my years alone — I’m good alone,” she said. “My belly is flip-flopping. This was not supposed to happen.”

A few years before they started dating, she messaged the writer on Instagram and they became friends. This is how the new couple first met. “It was strictly platonic but there was something about him that I connected with that felt familiar,” she said. “A comfort level. He felt like a kindred spirit.”

Following their initial messages, “every few months he would DM me,” Valerie said, and in January 2024, things began to heat up when they spoke on the phone for the first time. “I was very guarded, as was he,” she said. “His voice had the most beautiful timbre. I was like ‘Oh, I can’t talk to this man right now because that’s really sexy.’ We both had strong feelings, trying not to admit them.”

In April 2024, Mike came clean in a Substack article. In an interview with USA Today dated March 2024, more than a year after she and Tom Vitale were divorced, Valerie referred to the “special man” in her life for the first time.

Valerie was giving away hints on social media about her boyfriend’s identity while he was being evasive about it. Following the release of Bertinelli’s dating tidbits in March 2024, he shared a video of himself dressed as someone else and stated that the mystery man “could be anyone really.” The following month, he read the Golden Globe winner’s “lovely new cookbook as one does” and listened to her “subtle and nonchalant-like” interview on “Kelly Clarkson Show.”

In April 2024, Mike also shared with his followers that he was “browsing the magazine rack,” with Valerie’s People cover article prominently displayed in the photo. In April 2024, he was backstage when the Food Network star mentioned him on “The Drew Barrymore Show,” and they exited the studio together.

They were, as Valerie put it, “hiding in plain sight.”

Mike has a son who he shares about his Substack. In 2007, he and his first wife welcomed a son. The two parted ways when their son was two years old, and according to Goodnough, who wrote on X, he put his child’s needs above all else and rearranged his work to support him.

“I made the conscious decision to give him a softer loving energy than a typical father,” he wrote. “I potty trained him and taught him to read I tucked him in and made up fantastic tales of Leo the Lion, the laziest lion on Long Island. And I loved every minute of it.”

“As a parent, I’m pretty much just guessing,” he admitted in November 2023. “There really is no other way to put it. I’m guessing. My approach to raising my son, how I handle things, it’s all just one big guessathon,” Mike continued.

Mike added further, “I have no idea what I’m doing. I really don’t. I’m just making it up as I go and hoping for the best.”

In addition, Valerie is a mother of one son. Wolfgang was born to her and Van Halen in 1991, and Mike has kindly supported the musician’s career by reposting content on social media.

But after his kid was born, Mike gave up his full-time job to focus on raising his child and took on tasks as he could.
