Lucci had been out of the spotlight following her husband’s passing. But in May 2022, Lucci was photographed for the first time leaving a New York hotel in an all-black ensemble.

On Instagram in October 2022, Lucci celebrated her husband’s birthday. She was shown looking at a slice of cake with a birthday candle in the center. Hubert would have been 85 at the time if he hadn’t.

She posted another photo of herself smiling outside a door carrying two bags full of winter coats in December of that year. Christmas appeared gloomy for Lucci, who was photographed wearing black from head to toe.

Despite the loss, Lucci considers herself fortunate to have supportive friends. She expressed gratitude to her beautiful best friend for making her feel like a “birthday queen.”

Lucci appeared to be missing her husband during the most wonderful season. She shared a photo of Hubert kissing her on the forehead while they dined at a fancy restaurant. She captioned her post: “Nine months this week—so many happy times together. ”

In 2017, the actress gushed about her long marriage with her European husband. She said she admired Huber’s ability to be both intelligent and humorous at the same time.

Lucci said that during their years of marriage, her husband made her happy, and she felt lucky to be married to him. She likened maintaining a solid marriage to one of her beauty regimens. She said:

“I think it’s like taking care of your skin. I think you just do a little bit every day. You do something good every day and you remember every day why you fell in love. You don’t lose track of that and tell him.”

It has been almost a year since Lucci’s husband passed away, and it appears that she is coping well with the loss of her loved one. She started in January 2023 by focusing on work and productivity.

Lucci updated her Instagram fans about co-hosting “Good Day NY” with Rosanna Scotto and posted a photo of herself on the platform sitting in the pilot’s seat inside the plane.

She also shared another picture from the set of the TV show’s studio, where she and Scotto and two other co-hosts, Ron Shuter and Wilson Morales, discussed this year’s Golden Globe Awards season.

As Lucci continues to shine in the entertainment industry, she is grateful for the support of her loved ones. She is an excellent example of how beauty and strength come from the inside and can be gained through hard work and dedication.
