During their marriage, the couple had two sons together: Marcus and Brando. In an Instagram post, Michele shared that the divorce took a serious toll on him.

4. He Loves To Travel
If you ask most people what one thing they wish they could do more, a lot of them would probably say travel. Traveling can be a great experience, but unfortunately it’s something that many people don’t have the time or money to enjoy. Luckily for Michele, he is in a position where he can travel frequently. He has been fortunate enough to visit some pretty cool places such as Lebanon and Los Angeles.

6. He Rides Horses
Michele may not look like your typical cowboy, but he is one all the same. When he isn’t occupied with work, he loves riding horses and appears to own a horse of his own. In general, he enjoys spending time outdoors and is appreciative of nature’s calming effects.
7. He’s Bilingual
Knowing how to speak more than one language can be extremely beneficial – particularly in the entertainment industry. Michele speaks both English and Italian and usually sings in English. As he strives to expand his career on a global scale, his proficiency in both languages could make him more appealing to potential audiences.
8. He Worked As A Gardener
When Michele was going through his divorce, he was very close to abandoning acting for good. In fact, he had stepped away from the profession temporarily.

9. He’s Very Private
Lots of actors enjoy sharing details about their personal life with the public. However, Michele isn’t that type of actor. He prefers to keep his private life out of the public eye, creating a somewhat mysterious air about him. However, as his popularity continues to increase, he may decide to share more of himself with the world.
