Early life and education
Yaron, as initially mentioned, was born in Amsterdam, Netherlands, to Jewish parents. There, he was raised alongside his brother, Guy Varsano, who is also now into properties. Not much is known about their childhood, but reports claim that they spent the majority of their formative years in the Netherlands. One can also assume that their parents set their feet in the family religion as Yaron practices Judaism till today.
He attended the International School of Amsterdam and later enrolled at the New York Institute of Technology in Old Westbury, New York, from where he graduated in 2000. His foray into business began after the completion of his education.
Varsano moved back to Tel Aviv, Israel, after graduating from the Institute of Technology. He teamed up with his brother on getting there, and they set up their own real-estate company. Although there is no detailed information about their business, many sources claim it was quite successful.
A high point of his real estate career is the hotel he and his brother established in Tel Aviv. Gal Gadot was traveling a lot due to filming schedules, and they shuttled between the US and Israel very often. Resultantly, they stayed in hotels a lot, and on one of such trips, they found a hotel that was built like an apartment complex. It gave Yaron an idea, and he soon embarked on building what will become Versano Hotels.
Yaron and his brother ran the hotel for years, and in 2015, they cashed in on the property. It was sold for NIS 100 million (almost $26 million) to Russian businessman Roman Abramovich who owns Chelsea FC in England.
In addition to his real estate business, Yaron also owns a production company with his wife. The company christened Pilot Wave is focused on championing projects that celebrate and inspire women everywhere.
As Gal Gadot husband
In 2006, Yaron attended a Yoga retreat in a desert in Israel. The party was organized by someone who is reportedly a mutual friend of himself and his would-be wife, Gal Gadot. The two met for the first time at the party and thus began their journey. It is said that they both felt a connection towards each other and went on more dates after that. Knowing what he wanted, Yaron opened up to Gal about his intentions on their second date. He told her that he wanted something serious and that he would propose to her in no later than two years.
It is not strange at all that Gal, who was only about 22 years old at the time, was a bit confused about Yarons proposition. On the other hand, Yaron was already over 30 and was sure he had found what he wanted. Just as he promised, he proposed to Gal in 2008, and they got married the same year. Their wedding ceremony was a private affair that took place in Tel Aviv amidst family and close relatives.
Gal Gadot wedding dress
For some reason, Gadot’s wedding dress has some fame of its own. For her wedding, she wore a white dress with various details in rhinestones. The dress, which had a large neckline at the back, boasted light straps that adjusted her back and shoulders.
Yaron and Gal Gadot children
Almost three years after getting married, Gal and Yaron welcomed their first child. Alma Varsano was born in 2011 when Gal’s career had just begun to take off. Having a newborn made it hard for her to juggle work, and she even considered quitting acting. Her husband was, however, there to urge her on.
In an interview with Glamour, Gal said: “When Alma was around two, I was really anxious about how to travel with a child, moving her from one country to the other, all the different languages. It was my husband who told me: ‘Gal, think about what kind of a role model you want to be. If you want to show Alma that she can follow her dreams, that’s what you should do, and we will figure out the logistics.'”
Their second child, Maya Varsano, was already growing in Gal’s belly when she shot parts of Wonder Woman in 2016. Maya was later born in the following year.
In March of 2021, Gal announced that they had a third baby on the way in an Instagram post. Before the announcement, the public had already donned their detective hats after Gal appeared at the Golden Globe awards in a loose-fitting outfit.
It is unclear the exact date that Daniella Varsano was born, but Gal shared an Instagram post that featured the newborn on 29 June 2021. “My sweet family. I couldn’t be more grateful and happy (and tired) we are all so excited to welcome Daniella into our family. I’m sending all of you love and health. GG,” she captioned the post.
