An American lawyer and politician, Andrew Cuomo, served as the 56th governor of New York from 2011 to 2021. Cuomo is a member of the Democratic party and was the longest-tenured governor in the US.
Cuomo resigned from office due to several allegations of sexual misconduct in 2021.
Cuomo walked down the aisle with Kerry Kennedy, Robert F. Kennedy’s seventh child with Ethel Skakel Kennedy, on June 9, 1990. They have three daughters: twins, Cara Ethel Kennedy-Cuomo and Mariah Matilda Kennedy-Cuomo (born 1995), and Michaela Andrea Kennedy-Cuomo (born 1997). The couple divorced in 2005.
Cuomo’s next relationship began in 2005 with Food Network host Sandra Lee. The couple moved in together in 2011 and called it quits come September 2019.

Cuomo’s published works cited as the primary contributor to net worth
Cuomo has garnered a great deal of his income from the sale of his three books:
- “Crossroads: The Future of American Politics” published in 2003,
- “All Things Possible: Setbacks and Success in Politics and Life,” in 2014 that yielded him $650,000 even though it sold only around 4,000 copies.
- In 2020, “American Crisis: Leadership Lessons from the COVID-19 Pandemic” was published by Crown Publishing Group.
- Cuomo’s most recent book appeared to have landed him an advance worth $4 million, but the hardcopy sales some to have peaked at less than 50,000 copies. He eventually went on to get an additional $1 million from the sale, $500,000 of which he donated to charity.
Why Andrew Cuomo has a net worth less than his brother?
CNN news anchor Chris Cuomo’s net worth is more than double Andrew’s. As host of the Cuomo Prime Time evening news program and his other roles at CNN, Chris Cuomo’s annual salary is $6 million. He may be younger, but Chris is taller than his brother, and his wealth grows at a significantly faster rate than Andrew.
From September 2006 to December 2009, Chris was Good Morning America’s news anchor. The journalist moved to CNN in February of 2013 to co-host the morning show. He began his primetime hosting career in 2018. The same year he also began hosting a weekday radio show, Let’s Get After It, on SiriusXM.
The Cuomo brothers have three sisters, Margaret, Maria, and Madeline. The eldest sister, Margaret, is a renowned physician and radiologist. Maria is a producer of social impact films at Cuomo Cole Productions, while their youngest sister Madeline is a divorce lawyer. Andrew and his youngest sister both attended Albany Law School.
