Who is Lara Spencer?

Lara is best known for being an American TV presenter for ABC.

She is also a mom-of-two, creator and host of Flea Market Flip, author and producer, so it’s no secret that Lara keeps herself busy!

The 51-year-old is the host and creator of HGTV’s show Everything But Your House, adding to her role as co-anchor for ABC’s Good Morning America.

In addition, she is a correspondent for Nightline and ABC News.

Lara, who grew up in Garden City in New York, USA, also presents the Great American Country channel on Discovery.

Who are Lara Spencer’s children?

Lara’s daughter Katharine is 17 years old, while her son Duff is 19.

She shares her teenage children with her first husband and real estate broker David Haffenreffer.
