Chae turned 45 in December 2022. A year before on the same day, Mari had taken to her social media to call him the man, the myth, the legend, her roll dog, partner for life, baby daddy, husband, CFO, bestie, papi chulo, king, and purpose-mate. Also, she gushed him to be the definition of leadership, love, and light.
Chae, per his LinkedIn, has been a senior manager at Deloitte in Greater Los Angeles Area for the past 18 years. Before this, he briefly worked as a financial institutions examiner at the California Department of Financial Protection and Innovation.
Mari keeps on telling her social media people that Chae has always been very supportive. She gave this one instance from back in time when she first decided to go back to school and pursue her master’s in communication. Chae, her boyfriend at the time, took her seriously once he saw her working very hard for it. That is how she said she made him believe to invest in her with her tuition fees.
Mari and Chae got married on 14 December 2017. “It’s so great to find that one person you want to annoy for the rest of your life,” this is what Mari wrote next to a lovey-dovey picture of them together on their one-year anniversary.
Then, fast-forward to August 2021, the couple welcomed into their lives a “super baby boy” who they also gave a proper name ‘Princeton Chae’. Baby Princeton now also has an Instagram account of his own (@princetonchae).
Moving on, in 2022, Mari and Chae made sure to give their one-year-old son a “wild birthday party.” Mari later said they did that also to “commemorate” their one-year of beast-mode parenting.
