The media personality was born into the family of Myrna Maria Ruiz and Floyd J. Malveaux as Suzanne Maria Malveaux on 4 December 1966 in New Orleans. She is of mixed descent; African, Spanish and French.

Suzanne was still a young girl when her family moved to Howard County, Maryland from New Orleans. She then attended Centennial High School located in Ellicott. From there, Suzanne went to Harvard University where she earned a degree in Sociology and then she went to Columbia University’s Graduate School of Journalism and obtained a Master’s degree in Journalism.

Her father is a well-versed individual who has worked at Howard University as the former dean of the College of Medicine before now working as Merck Childhood Asthma Network’s executive director. He also founded the National Human Genome Center of Howard University. While her mother, Myrna Maria Ruiz, was not so much popular, she has also worked in the academic line as a childhood educator before she retired.

For quite some time, her mother battled with Lou Gehrig’s Disease. This became one of the main motivations for the CNN woman to keep trying to create awareness around the disease which affects the neuromuscular system. Unfortunately, her mother died in her sleep on April 13, 2018. She was 79 years old at the time of her death.

Suzanne Malveaux was not raised as an only child; she has three siblings. Her first sibling is Suzette M. Malveaux who is her twin sister. Not surprisingly, Suzette decided to follow the same path as her parents by towing the academic line. She is a professor of law and she worked with the Columbus School of Law, the Catholic University of America as an associate dean of academic affairs. She has gained national recognition for her civil rights activism. She now works at the University of Colorado Law School’s Byron R. White Center as a director.

The other siblings of the CNN correspondent are Courtney and Greg Malveaux who are less popular compared to the other members of the family. However, it is known, however, that Courtney is the Commissioner of the Virginia Department of Labor and Industry while Gregory did not leave the academic line set by his parents as he works at Montgomery College as an associate professor of English.

On her own, Suzanne is yet to start her own family, although she has a daughter she adopted in 2015. There is no so much information that is provided on the daughter except that she was newly born when Suzanne adopted her.

Are Suzanne Malveaux and Karine Jean-Pierre married?

While it is certain that Suzanne Malveaux and Karine Jean-Pierre are in a relationship and are living together in Washington D.C., information about whether or not they have officially tied the knot remains in the dark.

In the same vein, details of where and when the duo met and started dating is also out of reach at the moment. However, it might be safe to assume that they met in the line of duty as Karine is an expert on public affairs, political commentator, campaign organizer, and activist.

In 2014, the couple welcomed a baby girl through adoption. Wolf Blitzer announced the adoption of the baby named Soleil Malveaux Jean-Pierre on his show on 3 June 2014.
