Martha Stewart and I Have the Same Nephew!!!!!

Can we have a big OY!!!!
My sister's son, Dan Slater, recently married a lovely young woman named Sophie Herbert.
I mentioned it on my blog, and told you all about his new book.....
What I didn't mention, is that Sophie is Martha Stewart's niece.
I didn't want to take away from the wonderfulness of Dan's new life and his new book.
Well.....
Last Monday he and Martha were on the Today Show with Matt Lauer.
My nephew was giving Martha dating advice, because he now knows 
everything
about internet dating!!!!!
Dan's the cute one on the right!!!!!
It seems that Martha is ready for a new chapter in her life, and is willing to get some help from Match.com.
Match's CEO, Sam Yagan, was on the show along with them, and is going to help Martha in her quest.
I watched the segment, because I watch every show that Dan is on, being the proud aunt that I am.....
but...
it was a real surprise to hear Martha refer to him as her nephew.....
he's my nephew!!!!!
I have a new niece, so I guess she has a new nephew.
If you have found dates through the internet, or know someone who has.....
you'd enjoy Dan's book.
Next Monday Martha and he are going back on the Today Show for a follow up on her love life.

These poor newly weds.....
there may be a tug of war when it comes to decorating their home.
You all know how I've been helping my niece Miriam and nephew Ross.
My sister (Dan's Mom) informed me that Sophie has a very clear idea of her own style.
What a party pooper.......
Anyway, I have a new family member, and so does Martha.

Don't forget to watch on Monday!!!!!
And go out and buy his book!!!!!

on that note,

Well, he IS a cutie! And I'd rather work with you any day of the week, even though I am a big MS fan . . . you'd be a riot! I'm afraid Ms. Martha wouldn't have much of a sense of humor.

OMG Betsy...With Auntie Betsy and Auntie Martha in their lineage, I can only image how "talented" the children of Dan and Sophie will be! :) Vikki in VA

how fun! let's see, how many "degrees of separation" would this be?

FABBY'S LIVING said...

Oh, this is fun! You are so cute, thinking Martha is taking away the "My Nephew" title from you, lol... I guess you both lucky to have him now, and he is also fortunate to have you both, great ladies for aunts, too! Thanks for sharing.

OY!!!Your nephew is adorable. I was listening to
Martha's radio show one day last year when she was
answering questions from listeners. And I am pretty
sure Sophie was there on the show with Martha and
she asked Martha a question about her apartment.
And Martha said that Sophie had this boyfriend
who she asked to call in. I believe it was Dan.
And he did and of course they had a little chat.
Ask him about that. It seems to me that she was suggesting marriage to him at the time kinda of putting him on the spot. He handled himself very well.

That is so neat, Betsy!

And you're right, he is very cute.

I don't know anyone who has gotten together and gotten married through online dating, but my cousin and his wife hooked up on Facebook. They are so in love and so great togehter.

The book sounds fun!

XO,

Sorry about that. It seems I typed faster than the time it took to save.

That is so sweet. Love the glasses!

Tug-a-War on the decorating is cute.

But is any man a match for Martha?

Sweet about your nephew! Hmmm...Martha needing a love match? I'm just not sure about that. :-)

I found my true love online. But I'm old enough to know what i want and to order it up. He is old enough to recognize a gem of a woman when he meets her (gem=me).

I suspect that when i was younger, i would have ordered all the wrong things and it would have eventually turned out badly.

Re: Martha. Can't imagine what kind of man would suit that woman. I hope someone lets me know if and when she finds Mr. Right. I don't watch tv. But for this, I'll make an exception.

btw, doesn't match.com cost money to use? Mine was free and it worked just fine. Money doesn't always buy love.

Dan's not bad looking, for a youngster.....and as Betsy's nephew, he has to be a charmer.

Betsy, your nephew is a cute guy. What a lucky couple to have both you and Martha in their family. '-)

The Bashful Nest said...

Wow that is really cool! I remember seeing Martha's niece Sophie on some of her Christmas specials years ago. How lucky are you! Or should we say how lucky is Martha!

He is adorable and I understand why you are so proud of him!
I met my husband on Match.com and we have been married 11 years. We were 50 when we married and I was working and it was so hard to meet anyone. I had decided to try one more person, because none of the guys were a match and viola....you know the rest of the story.
I hope Martha finds someone....we all need love in our life..but I agree with others that it may be hard to do....I will say a prayer for her. Love your story Betsy!....lin

Gee. One of my best friends found her last TWO husbands on-line.....

Mary said...

Aww, your nephew is a cutie. How cool is that, your new niece is Martha Stewart's niece and she gets to claim your nephew. Big Celebrities in your family!

Since they already know what they want in decorating come on to Virginia and you can decorate for me. I would love it.

That is pretty neat!! Your nephew is very handsome.

That would make for a good post, you and Martha arguing over wall colours and such, lol! Too funny.

Internet dating sounds fun and exciting. My friend and her fiancĂ©e met through online dating. And till now they’re both in love with each other. They truly are meant to be and time and space has brought them together. But just pieces of advice, always know the intention first before falling too hard and be a little extra careful.
