The couple had a televised wedding, marrying in 2005 at the Atlantis Paradise Island for the CBS special, Rob and Amber Get Married.

They are now parents to four daughters, Lucia, Carina, Isabetta, and Adelina.

Though he’s only been on Instagram for a few short months, Rob’s account has already been flooded with images of his little girls. 

Whether he is building them a tree house or attending a father-daughter dance with his girls, Rob has completely devoted himself to the happiness of his family.

In addition to nurturing his role as doting dad, Rob is still keeping the spark alive with his wife Amber. 

The couple couldn’t have looked happier while enjoying a recent date night out together.   

Die-hard fans may remember how Rob popped the question to Amber in front of a live studio audience during the season finale of Survivor: All Stars in 2003.

The pair were the final two contestants of the season, and Rob proposed to Amber just before a winner was announced.   

Amber ended up winning the grand prize, leaving the show not just with a million dollars but also an engaged woman.  

At the time he joined Survivor: Marquesas in 2002, Rob was focused more on fortune than fame.

In 2011 he took home $1 million as the winner of Survivor: Redemption Island.

Now Rob is back alongside all-star Sandra Diaz Twine as mentors on season 39 of the series. 

In addition to his reality career, Rob is also working behind-the-scenes with his production company, Murlonio Productions, LLC.
