When Baywatch‘s famous actress Yasmine Bleeth got hooked on cocaine addiction, she went to Promises Rehabilitation Clinic in Malibu.

She met her husband, Paul Cerrito, who was also part of the program. Since then, Paul has been famous as actress Yasmine’s celebrity husband.

Paul was born on July 14, 1970, to Victoria Cerrito and Paul Cerrito Sr. He is an animal lover and describes himself as the best husband.

His Marital Life with Yasmine Bleeth

Paul and Yasmine first met each other when she was in the recovery process of drug addiction. The couple fell in love immediately. Some people criticized her for being in a relationship with Paul during her sobriety. She once said;

They say you shouldn’t get into any relationship in the first year of sobriety — especially with someone in the program, but Paul and I fell in love immediately.

After dating for nearly two years, Yasmine and Paul decided to be each other’s, life partners. They married on August 25, 2002, in Santa Barbara, California. Their wedding ceremony at one of the posh resorts was private, including only a few friends and families.

Paul married Yasmine in 2002.

Later, Paul and Yasmine’s wedding reception for 50 guests was held at the Bacara Resort. The resort was only between the Pacific Ocean and Santa Ynez mountains.

Since then, Paul and Yasmine seem to be leading a blissful married life. In September 2019, Paul had a horrible motorcycle accident where his left leg was surgically reconstructed.

Yasmine is always by his side and cares for him.
