Real Housewives of Beverly Hills star Teddi Mellencamp might be the face of her family, but as any true fan of the show would know her husband Edwin Arroyave plays just as big a part in their family’s life. The couple shares three children, daughter Slate, son Cruz, and newly born daughter Dove, and Mellencamp is also stepmom to Arroyave’s daughter Isabella from a previous relationship (via Bravo’s The Daily Dish). And while Arroyave is often seen onscreen with Mellencamp and their family, we can’t help but want to know more about him.

According to his website, Arroyave is the CEO and Founder of Skyline Security Management. Born in Colombia, he moved to Los Angelos at a very young age and quickly took charge of his family finances, co-founding a global security business in 1999. By 2004, he went out on his own and opened Skyline, said to be the largest authorized dealer of Brinks Home Security in the United States.

Here's how Teddi Mellencamp and Edwin Arroyave met

Teddi Mellencamp and Edwin Arroyave met because of a one night stand in 2008. “I could try to sugarcoat it,” Mellencamp admitted on her debut episode of Real Housewives of Beverly Hills (via Romper), “But it was a one-night stand.” She explained, “It was supposed to be a one-night stand! I woke up with some guy I thought’s name was Edward. His name is Edwin!” she laughed. And the rest is history. 

Mellencamp and Arroyave married in 2011 in Paris and have been going strong ever since (via Bravo). However, Mellencamp is the first to admit that having a happy marriage takes a lot of work, revealing on her Instagram: “Marriage is not perfect, but, knowing you found the person that you are willing to fight for for [sic] the rest of your life when hard things happen makes my heart feel full.”
