Melina Kanakaredes is a well known television actress, currently starring on "The Resident", but do you know her husband? Kanakaredes has kept her personal life relatively private, like most celebrities married to regular people try to do, but her husband Peter is often at her side cheering her on. There isn't much known about her husband Peter Constantinides, but here are five fast facts about the chef.

1. He's Greek

Kanakaredes and her husband share something very important in common. If you couldn't tell from the last name Constantinides, like his wife, Peter is also Greek. They keep up with their shared ancestry by taking frequent trips to Greece. Constantinides and Kanakaredes have gotten into the habit of traveling to Greece at least once a year with their two daughters. They make the trip so they can connect with both family members and friends they've made in the beautiful country.

2. Met Melina in College

Constantinides and Kanakaredes met while they were both students at Ohio State University. It must have been an act of fate, because Kanakaredes was only a student at the school for a short time. Kanakaredes left Ohio State to focus more on her love of the arts, and transferred to Point Park College in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Luckily Kanakaredes was a student in Ohio for long enough to meet Constantinides, who ended up being the love of her life. The two married in 1992.

3. He's a Chef

Constantinides is a former restaurant consultant and currently a successful chef. In their early days together, Constantinides and Kanakaredes had a restaurant in their home state of Ohio. While it's closed since then, Constantinides was the head chef, and Kanakaredes used her success in television to open the doors of the restaurant. Now that they live in Los Angeles together with their children, running a restaurant so far away isn't the easiest task. There's no word on whether they plan on opening an establishment in California, but Constantinides continues to work as a chef, and Kanakaredes has stated she'd happily invest her net worth in any business venture he makes in the future.

4. Father of Two

In 1999, after seven years of marriage, Constantinides and Kanakaredes decided to start a family. They welcomed their first daughter, Zoe Constantinides, into the world in May of the following year. Three years later they had their second daughter, Karina Eleni Constantinides. Now that both Constantinides girls are in their teen years, they're highly active on social media; including Instagram and Facebook. Kanakaredes can often be seen commenting on pictures Zoe posts on Instagram, especially since sometimes they're young pictures of Kanakaredes herself. Thankfully it seems as if the public respects the young age of the Constantinides girls, and doesn't use their Facebook or Instagram accounts to try and get to their famous mother.

5. He's Melina's Biggest Supporter

Constantinides may not be in the limelight, but he gladly supports his wife in everything she does. He's typically seen on Kanakaredes' arm on red carpets and industry events, and celebrated the premiere of her new show "The Resident" with her. Some men would be threatened by their wife having a higher net worth than them, but that's not the case with Constantinides, he's happy for his wife's success.


Peter Constantinides is a strong man who stands behind his woman in everything she does. Over the course of twenty-five years of marriage, he's never been anything but loving and supportive. The successful chef, husband and father may not be a household name like Melina Kanakaredes, but he's certainly worth knowing.
