Fox News host Jesse Watters admitted on “The Five,” during a conversation about climate activists letting the air out of SUV tires, that he had deflated his colleague and future wife’s tires so he could drive her home when he was trying to get a date with her.
Co-host Jeanine Pirro started the line of banter off by questioning Watters on whether climate activists “are convincing their own left-wing progressives.”
“It can be convincing,” Watters responded. “I was trying to get Emma to date me. First thing I did, I let the air out of your tires. She couldn’t go anywhere. She needed a lift, I said ‘hey, you need a lift?’ She got right in the car!”
He claimed she “doesn’t know this story,” while acknowledging he could care less about raising awareness when it comes to climate change.
Then Watters added, “Now she does.”
“You’re basically the zodiac killer,” co-host Greg Gutfeld quipped.
Laughing, Watters shot back that the story had “a happy ending” since they are now married. He noted that what he pulled, “works like a charm.”
“Is that the first time you did it, or did you use that before?” Pirro asked Watters.
“It works like a charm!” he proclaimed.
Watters and DiGiovine allegedly dated while Watters was still married to his first wife Noelle Watters. Fox News was informed of the relationship in 2017 according to the Daily Mail. The affair reportedly contributed to their divorce in March 2019.
The ruse in 2018 worked. The 25-year-old colleague turned out to be his current wife, Emma DiGiovine, who he was working with at the time. The Fox News associate producer transferred to a different department once they began dating. The couple wed in December 2019 and they now have a one-year-old son. Watters is fourteen years older than his wife.
The Fox News personality announced in a tweet on August 25, 2019, that he and DiGivione were engaged, writing, “Emma and I would like to announce our engagement! Thanks to all of our family and friends who’ve shown us so much love. We are so grateful ❤️.”

“I love you forever @jessewatters and can’t wait for our next chapter – coming soon❤️❤️❤️❤️💙,” she added.

Watters has twin daughters with his ex-wife. They were married for ten years.
The clip went viral and leftists started piling on Watters via social media, calling him a stalker and creepy, among other things.
Fox News critic Juliet Jeske pounced and posted a clip of Watters’ recounting his story, which was meant to be cute and romantic but has been twisted by leftists into something that it’s not. She asserted that as someone who has dealt with stalkers, she was struck by his tactics. She also viciously referred to Watters’ courting of his current wife “a Fox News love story.”
