Vivek Ramaswamy is off the market! He has been married to his longtime girlfriend Apoorva Tewari for years.

Vivek, 38, and Apoorva, 35, met while they were both students attending Yale University. At the time, the politician was studying law, while his spouse was studying medicine.

Vivek and Apoorva got married on May 31, 2015, but have been together for over a decade.

What does Apoorva Ramaswamy do for a living? Ramaswamy’s wife Apoorva Tewari is an airway specialist, physician, surgeon and assistant professor at the Ohio State University Wexner Medical Center.

He lived in Manhattan as of 2016. As of 2021, he owned a house in Butler County, Ohio, which is worth around $500,000.

In 2023, the only real estate he’s reported owning was a 11,300 square foot house in Columbus, Ohio, in Franklin County which Vivek and Apoorva paid $2 million.

He and his wife’s sprawling mansion, which sits on 1.6 acres of perfectly manicured lawns, is a 20 minute drive from Ohio State’s Wexner Medical Center where Apoorva works as a surgeon and assistant professor.

Politician and businessman Vivek Ramaswamy is a father of two. He has two children – all sons.

The names of his children are Karthik Ramaswamy, four, and Arjun Ramaswamy, one.

At the moment, other personal details about of his kids are not known.

The Roivant Sciences founder shares his children with his partner, Apoorva.

In a 2020 essay titled “The Pluralism Within,” Ramaswamy wrote:

I am not just a man — I am a proud father, a loyal husband, and a grateful son. I am not just a person of color — I am a Hindu, a child of immigrants, an American citizen, a native of Ohio. I am a CEO, but I am also a scientist and an entrepreneur.

He also wrote that Apoorva, felt that it was her duty to treat Covid patients not long after their eldest son was born, so Vivek became the principal caretaker during that time. Ramaswamy added:

She went on to become infected in the line of duty and was separated from our family for longer than we had planned.

Vivek Ramaswamy announced his bid to run for the presidential race early 2023

Conservative entrepreneur Vivek Ramaswamy announced his 2024 bid for the presidency on February 2023, during an appearance on Tucker Carlson Tonight and in a subsequent Wall Street Journal editorial.

“To put America first, we need to rediscover what America is. That’s why I am running for president,” Ramaswamy wrote in his op-ed. “I am launching not only a political campaign but a cultural movement to create a new American Dream — one that is not only about money but about the unapologetic pursuit of excellence.”

“It may seem presumptuous for a 37-year-old political outsider to pursue the highest office in the land, but I am running on a vision for our nation — one that revives merit in every sphere of American life,” Ramaswamy wrote in his announcement.

Ramaswamy has been outspoken against companies using their platforms for social causes and has echoed the views of many far-right Republicans that America’s values are in decline, citing critical race theory, self-victimization, and efforts to stop climate change as things that have destroyed the nation’s once-shared identity.

In line with those talking points, he’s said that Americans’ recent focus on diversity only emphasizes people’s differences.

In his editorial, Ramaswamy called for securing the border, eliminating affirmative action “across the American economy,” and declaring economic independence from China, which he calls “the greatest external threat to America.”

He’s elaborated on his beliefs through his 2021 New York Times best-selling bookWoke, Inc.: Inside Corporate America’s Social Justice Scam, and his 2022 follow-upNation of Victims: Identity Politics, the Death of Merit, and the Path Back to Excellence.

The views expressed in Ramaswamy’s books led the New Yorker to dub him as the “CEO of Anti-Woke, Inc.” They also piqued the curiosity of Fox News host Tucker Carlson, who has since made Ramaswamy a regular guest on his show.

Speaking with Carlson during his campaign announcement, Ramaswamy got riled up discussing so-called “alternative religions” in America — wokeness, affirmative action and environmentalism — that he credits with destroying American culture.

“We need to take the most sacred cows of these alternative secular religions and, I’m sorry to say this, take them to the slaughter house,” he said.
