Caitlin Flanagan’s Husband Is A Famous Producer
Rob Hudnut was the vice president of Mattel Entertainment and the executive producer of Mattel Playground Productions, which was a new division at the time.
During this time, Rob made entertainment for Barbie, Hot Wheels, Fisher-Price, American Girl, Polly Pocket, Max Steel, Masters of the Universe, and a lot of other Mattel brands. His award-winning movies and TV shows have made billions of dollars by selling toys and entertainment.
Rob helped write the first Barbie movie, which was called Barbie in the Nutcracker. Since then, he has been the executive producer of 27 other movies that have sold more than 100 million copies around the world. Rob is also a songwriter who has been nominated for an Emmy and has written dozens of songs for the Barbie movies. Rob got the Mattel Chairman’s Award for all he did for the company before he left in January 2015, when Barbie in Princess Power came out.
When Caitlin And Rob Got Married?
Rob and Caitlin are both very secretive. They have never told anyone about their private lives. So, nobody knows how they met or when they got married. But we do know that they have two boys named Patrick and Conor.
Caitlin has been married twice. The first one didn’t work out very well. But the second time around, she married Rob, and they are still together. Caitlin was a teacher before she got married for the second time, but she quit her job.
Caitlin Is A Cancer Survivor
LA Times says that Flanagan stayed at home with her boys and their full-time nanny until they started preschool. She now thinks of that time as a time when she was sad. Then, in 2001, her mother died.
Flanagan found out she had late-stage breast cancer exactly two years to the day after her mother died. Then the New Yorker’s David Remnick called. “A lot was going on at the same time,” said agent Walsh. “She didn’t know if she would live or die, and we got an offer from the New Yorker and a book deal. It was too much.”
Flanagan said that as of today, she is “free of cancer.”
