Lucas Giolito wife Ariana Giolito was an equestrian at Southern Methodist University. Lucas married Ariana in 2018 at The Ebell.

Lucas started dating Ariana while they were high school students. On the day of their engagement, Ariana recalled the moment when Lucas promised her when they were 18, and he told her he would marry her one day. 

At the time, Ariana thought it was a joke, but it became a reality in 2018. Unlike other couples, Ariana and Lucas hardly have enough time to meet each other, but they try their best. 

The White Sox pitcher hasn't been able to capture his 2018 All-star form in the past few seasons. But he has welcomed the criticisms and said he has been working in the gym to be on the lighter side as bulking up last season backfired.

Giolito is primed to be one of the names in the opening-day roster of The White Sox, who let go of their former second baseman Josh Harrison as a free agent.

Ariana Giolito is an intern veterinarian having graduated from UC Davis Veterinary Medicine in 2022.

Lucas shared a sweet tribute post for his better half on May 30, 2022, as he talked about the hard work she had poured into achieving success. He attended the graduation ceremony and was in awe after his partner was addressed as Dr. Ariana Dubelko.

Her love for animals is quite evident on her Instagram page. Though she might have moved on to become a veterinarian, Ariana can still be seen sharing photos of her time with the horse she has named Jellybean. 

In one of the videos shared by Ariana, the doctor can be seen giving sweet kisses, which were returned by Jellybean and later placing her food. In the caption, Ariana wrote that it had become her nighttime routine.
