The 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards: Valerie Bertinelli Hits the Red Carpet for The First Time With Her Boyfriend, Mike Goodnough June 7, 2024, was the day that set the stage for a couple of cute moments in Los Angeles as world-famous celebrity chef and author Valerie Bertinelli graced her first-ever red carpet with boyfriend Mike Goodnough at the 51st Annual Daytime Emmy Awards.

This marks their first official outing together, rounding off fan speculations and adding something special to an already prestigious event. Valerie Bertinelli is one in the lineup, known for her "Valerie's Home Cooking" culinary show, which had been canceled last year but still managed to garner two nominations in the current year.

Even though her show was off the air already this April, she's still very passionate about her craft. Her proud boyfriend, Mike Goodnough, looked up to her as he thought about how welcoming and respectful the culinary community has been towards Bertinelli's dedication.

In an interview, Goodnough said he was proud and happy to say, "It feels great. There's little better than seeing somebody you love get the recognition and the roses."

Bertinelli's Proud Moment

Regarding Hoarse Whisperer, now known on socials as Goodnough, he was kind of in awe with the Emmy nominations that Bertinelli got, and made it known again through his praises for her show via Instagram.

He commended the sweat and the extra mile put into "Valerie's Home Cooking" and said the Emmy nominations were well-deserved recognition. Bertinelli said similar about work on it, "I just really loved my job — reflecting on her time creating the beloved cooking series." The nods came almost exactly a year after the show was canceled, illustrating how much her work in the kitchen world had a lasting impact.

Bertinelli and Goodnough lit up the red carpet with their proud smiles and affection. Those smiles and their bond warmed what was to be a night of outstanding talent in daytime television. There he was, not only displaying all that means most in Bertinelli's career but also the loving, most supportive relationship they hold together as a couple.

The 2024 Daytime Emmy Awards were live on CBS at 8 p.m. ET with streaming via Paramount+. It was a tribute to daytime television and was filled with emotional moments, good and bad, like Bertinelli's and Goodnough's fantastic first, forever etched into the memory of everyone in attendance.
