Sometimes, you may have a successful career in the finance business. Yet, you still get recognized as a celebrity spouse. Such is the life of Ramzi Habibi, who works as a financier, but many people recognize him as the husband of American actress Masiela Lusha.
Ramzi has been with Masiela since 2012. They have two children together. Today, we will talk about the life and career of Ramzi, as well as his involvement with the famous actress.
Who Is His Wife?
First, let’s start with his wife. Many people might know her, but we still have to talk about the American actress. MasielaLusha is an Albanian-born American actress that gained recognition for portraying Carmen Lopez in the ABC television series, George Lopez. She was born in October 1985.
The role of Carmen earned her two consecutive Young Artist Awards for Leading Young Actress in a Comedy or Drama. She has also appeared in movies like Sharknado, where she starred alongside Ian Ziering and David Hasselhoff.
The American actress was born in Tirana, Albania. She is the only child of her parents Max Lusha and Daniela Lusha. Her mother worked as a magazine publisher.
In 1990, her family left Albania as refugees and initially moved to Budapest, Hungary. From there, they moved to Vienna, Austria, and eventually to the United States. In later interviews, she credits her memories as a refugee for her lifelong humanitarian effort.
When she was seven years of age, she moved to Michigan with her mother, where they got reunited with her great-uncle, Dr. Joseph Alli. He was a colonel in the Army during World War II and chief of laboratories for the United States Department of Veterans Affairs.
As a young lady, she got into modeling. She was only 12 years at the time. But her big plus was that she knew four languages, Albanian, Hungarian, German, and English. In the first few months of her career, she appeared as a model and acted in some local theater plays. But then, she was discovered by a Hollywood talent agent.
The Albanian-born actress made her acting debut in Summoning in 2001. She also appeared in the television series Lizzie McGuire, making her television debut in a Disney Channel series. In the early days, she also appeared in the music video Hands Clean, a song by Alanis Morissette.
By the end of 2001, Lusha was picked to play Carmen Lopez in the new ABC sitcom George Lopez. Sandra Bullock and Bruce Helford produced the show. It reached global syndication after the 120th episode, establishing Lusha as a TV veteran at the early age of 20 years. The show won an Emmy Award, becoming the second-longest-running sitcom in television history starring a Hispanic lead.
Fun fact: during the filming of George Lopez, she was privately schooled on set. She previously graduated from Burbank High School and attended Glendale College in Southern California. As a junior, she transferred to UCLA where she majored in Creative Writing.
Lusha also earned a degree from FIDM. The young actress credits her education for helping her design and sews her own clothes for red-carpet events.
Her time in the show ended in 2007 when her character was written off due to creative differences. She then moved on to the PBS series, Clifford’s Puppy Days, where she portrayed the character of Nina for four years. That character inspired her to write a children’s book in 2009.
Many fans recognize Lusha for her appearance in the Sharknado movie franchise. Besides that movie franchise, she has appeared in Time of the Comet, Cherry Bomb, Kill Kattie Malone, Dragonfyre, The Architect, Of Silence, Fatal Instinct, and Branded.
In 2010, she was appointed ambassador of Prince Harry’s charity, Sentebale. In 2014, she was named the World Assembly of Youth’s Goodwill Ambassador. She is also an advocate for UN Women.
To this day, she has written five books of poetry. She writes poetry and translates it into Albanian. Among the many, the famous actress has translated prayers by Mother Teresa.
Now let’s talk about Ramzi Habibi, Lusha’s husband. Despite being a successful financier, Ramzi prefers to keep his life private. It is a well-guarded secret with little to no information about his early life, educational background, and how he started his professional career.
We do know he was born in the United States. But there is no information about the exact birthplace and birth date. It is believed that he was also raised in the US.
His ethnicity is not known, but he holds American nationality. He is a finance executive who follows the Christianity religion.
Because he is a private person, very little is known about his upbringing. Ramzi came into the limelight only after his marriage to Lusha.
Speaking about his educational background, we can assume he is a well-educated man. There is no info about his elementary or high school education. Yet, there is info that he studied at the University of Pennsylvania’s Wharton School of Business. He graduated with a BSC in Economics with a focus on Finance, Organizational, and Informational management.
Habibi also holds a certificate from the CFA Institute, a global association of investment professionals.
We do know a thing or two about his professional career. Following his graduation, he began his professional career as an investment banking analyst in the Financial Sponsors Group at Lehman Brothers. No, he was not there during the collapse.
He worked at Lehman Brothers for two years before moving to the Pepsi-Cola Bottling Company in New York. Then, in 2008, he joined Oaktree, an American global asset management firm specializing in alternative investment strategies. He has been with the company since 2008 and doubles as the managing director and co-director of the research department.
Marriage To Masiela
American actress MasielaLusha and financer Ramzi Habibi began dating in 2012. They announced their engagement in July 2013, and by the end of the year, they got married.
Their wedding ceremony took place on Wanaka Peak in Queenstown, New Zealand. It was a lavish ceremony. They flew two helicopters from Queenstown to Wanaka. The happy couple exchanged vows in the presence of their closest family and friends.
They welcomed their son Landon Lusha in February 2018. The two enjoy spending time with him. They also have a daughter, Daniela Lusha.
Recently, the famous actress posted a photo with her daughter on social media.
Is He On Social Media?
We said before that Ramzi is quite secretive when it comes to his life. You cannot expect such a secretive person to use social media.
The person in charge of social media duties is his wife. The celebrity actress has more than 88k followers on her Instagram account. And she is not shy about posting photos with her lovely husband and children there.
So, who is in charge of financing the household? In this case, both Ramzi and his beautiful wife contribute greatly.
While he is a successful financier, his net worth has not been publicly disclosed or declared. We can be sure he has a decent salary, being that he is in charge of a department in a big investment company.
On the other hand, his wife has a net worth of $2 million.
