Veronica Lario was born July 19, 1956 in Bologna, Italy.

She married Prime Minister Silvio Berlusconi on December 15, 1990 and they had three children: Barbara Berlusconi (1984), Eleonora (1986) and Luigi (1988). In the '80s, before the birth of their first-born daughter Barbara, Veronica terminated an earlier pregnancy with an induced abortion in order not to give birth to a child which had been determined to be severely handicapped. As the wife of the Italian premier, Veronica Lario chose to maintain a low public profile during their marriage; she avoided most public events and meetings and seldom accompanied her husband at official meetings. Though she had been known to occasionally publicly express political opinions contrasting those of her husband. Her Prime Minister husband was never shy about mentioning his wife Veronica in public, and he had alluded at least once to a supposed affair between his wife and opposition politician Massimo Cacciari. In 2007, Veronica began a string of public accusations toward her then-husband and in April 2009 she once again published an open letter, criticizing her husband for consorting with young ladies and defining his chosen candidates for the European Parliament as "shameless rubbish". On May 3, 2009 it was reported that she had filed for divorce, which under Italian law can only be started after a couple has reached a separation agreement. On May 10, 2010 it was revealed that a separation settlement had been reached, with Silvio Berlusconi accepting alimony payment terms and allowing her to live in their luxury home near Milan, Italy. As part of the settlement with Silvio, Veronica Lario was awarded $160,000 a day in support. That's $1.6 million per month, roughly $20 million per year.
