During his speaking tour, currently happening in the US, Azar,35, popped the question to Escola, 32, a Spanish architect who moved to Israel to be with the famous TV host.

The two met in 2012 at a Madonna concert, and have been successfully managing a long-distance relationship on the Barcelona/Tel Aviv line, until Ascola decided to make Aliyah and move to Tel Aviv permanently.

Azar is on tour in the United States with CAMERA, the Committee for Accuracy in Middle East Reporting in America, showing his film ‘Mom and Dad: I Have Something to Tell You.’
