For Yaron, the travel to the US helped to inspire what would become his hotel, The Varsano. While both juggling their quickly growing careers and a young marriage, they endlessly supported each other, be it their career or family matter.
Gal says, “I think that Yaron and I make a really good team. I understand his career, and he understands mine.” Moreover, since they both are career-driven, it helps them understand each other better on the road to progress.
Motherhood for Gal
2011 was cherry on the top in the lovable journey of Gal and Yaron’s early years together, as their first daughter Alma was born. Though her arrival in their lives created much joy, it made Gal hesitant about her career.
But Yaron encouraged her to continue pursuing her dreams: “…Think about what kind of a role model you want to be. If you want to show Alma that she can follow her dreams, that’s what you should do, and we will figure out the logistics.”
In March 2017, the couple welcomed their second daughter, Maya. In 2021.
