Rachel Uchitel Marries and Puts Tiger Woods Scandal Behind Her
INSIDE EDITION sat down with Rachel Uchitel and her new husband as she embarks on a new chapter in her life, leaving the Tiger Woods scandal behind her.
Rachel Uchitel, best known as Tiger Woods's mistress number one, just got married to a guy who's 12 years younger. They actually met on Facebook!
Uchitel and her new husband Matt Hahn are sharing their love story only with INSIDE EDITION.
"I've met somebody that I love and that I'm lucky enough that loves me back," said Uchitel.
Uchitel is 38 and 26-year-old Hahn is an insurance broker and you won't believe where Uchitel first caught his eye.
Hahn saw Uchitel when she appeared on Celebrity Rehab with Dr. Drew. He then found her Facebook page and asked her out.
"You met on Facebook?" asked INSIDE EDITION's Jim Moret.
"I did see a friend request, and it happened to be from him," said Uchitel.
"People are either going to think this is like kind of sweet, and daring, and romantic, or they're just going to flat out think it's pretty creepy," said Hahn.
Fortunately Uchitel thought it was sweet and daring.
Their first date was on New Year's day. But there was always the inevitable question.
"Matt did you ask her what was the story with Tiger, did she tell you the story that nobody else knew?" asked Moret.
"I know Rachel from the Rachel that I met on January first of 2011. That's the Rachel that I know, that's the only Rachel that I care about, and I mean that's the Rachel I'm spending the rest of my life with," said Hahn.
"Were you worried when Matt brought you home to meet his parents?" asked Moret.
"At that point I felt really, I was a little more defensive back then. So I felt a little irritated like, you know, like I had to be defensive going into a situation where people had a preconceived notion of me," said Uchitel.
But they loved her and so did Hahn.
On October 2nd they were in Las Vegas for a friend's wedding, and you can guess what happened next.
"I kind of tapped her and looked at her and I said, 'You know, you want to get married?' And she looked at me and she said 'Yeah'," said Hahn.
They first went to the all-night marriage license bureau, and then it was off to the famous Little White Wedding Chapel where they said 'I do.'
"What about kids?" asked Moret.
"I think that's probably the next step. He comes from a big family, and really, really wants kids," said Uchitel.
