Survivor's Rob & Amber Baby Makes Three
Reality Show Stars 'Boston Rob' and Amber Mariano Have Had Many Adventures Onscreen, but These Days Their Biggest Thrill Is Raising Daughter Lucia Rose
July 4, 2009

Considering Mom and Dad fell in love in Panama while filming Survivor: All-Stars, married in the Bahamas and traveled around the world together twice on the Amazing Race, it's no surprise that little Lucia Rose Mariano is at ease in multiple time zones. "It's funny," says reality TV veteran Rob Mariano, 34, soon to be seen on Survivor: Heroes vs. Villains, the series' 20th season. "Lucia's 7 months old, and she's already been to Pittsburgh, Vegas, Boston and Atlanta! We're lucky she's so good on flights."
Before Amber, 31, won the $1 million prize on Survivor: All-Stars in 2004, Rob, the first runner-up, proposed at the show's live finale. Since then the couple set up house in Pensacola, Fla., while Rob has tried his hand at professional poker. A baby wasn't in the cards at first: After a whirlwind on-air romance, "We wanted to enjoy each other for a little while before we added another person to our family," says Amber.
When it came time to pick a baby name, Amber once more had to outwit, outplay and outlast her husband. "I really liked Lucy, but Rob wasn't crazy about it," Amber says. "So I kept trying to find a name that was similar, and Rob said that he kind of liked Lucia, so ..." Once again, Amber won. "When she was born, I got a little teary-eyed," Rob recalls. Amber adds, "Then he looked at me and said, 'I think her name is Lucia.' And I started crying too."
