Sheryl Sandberg Husband: Who Is Tom Bernthal?
American marketing CEO and former NBC News producer Thomas Bernthal is the husband of Sheryl Sandberg.
On February 3, 2020, Sheryl announced her engagement on Facebook to Tom. The couple got married on August 20, 2022, in Wyoming.
Sheryl first got married to Brian Kraff in 1993 and divorced a year later. She married Dave Goldberg in 2004, then an executive with Yahoo! and later CEO of SurveyMonkey.
Together, the couple has a son and a daughter. Sandberg and Goldberg frequently discussed being in a shared earning/shared parenting marriage.
Sheryl also raised the issue of single parenting conflicting strongly with professional and economic development in America.
Dave Goldberg died unexpectedly on May 1, 2015, and his death was originally reported as resulting from sustaining a head trauma falling from a treadmill, while the couple was vacationing in Mexico.
Sandberg has subsequently said that her husband’s cause of death was due to an arrhythmia, and not due to falling from a treadmill.
In May 2019, it was reported that Sandberg and Activision Blizzard CEO Bobby Kotick had split after three years of dating.
Thomas Bernthal on the other hand has three children from his previous marriage.
