Who is Michael Herd?
Michael Herd, a Texas oil heir and restaurateur, has been married to Whitney Wolfe Herd since 2017.
The couple met four years earlier in Aspen when both were on vacation.
Michael was having a long lunch at the time, according to Vogue.
“I sat down next to him and was giving him a hard time about wasting such amazing conditions,” Whitney told the magazine in 2017.
“Michael admitted he didn’t know how to ski, and being from Utah and having grown up skiing, I was perplexed as to why someone who couldn’t ski would be on a ski vacation.”
He would suggest that Whitney teach him how to ski.

“I was up for the challenge and excited to slyly show off my skills,” Whitney told Vogue.
“So up the gondola we went. I spent every minute of that long ride boasting about my expertise.
“He said that he was nervous and suggested that I go slow so he could keep up.
“When we got off, he picked up my skis and got me clicked in. I thought, Hmm, that’s weird, that’s kind of a pro move, but then quickly started down the hill.

“I went as fast as I could and thought he was long behind me.
“Next thing I know, he passes me backward. When we got to the bottom, he clicked off my skis, handed them over, and said, ‘Y’all have a good day!’ My life has never been the same since!”
They would start dating on Valentine’s Day.
