Before presenting his wife Allison Holker with the New Media Influencer Award, Boss also shared a glimpse into his life after The Ellen DeGeneres Show came to an end in May 2022. After being part of the show since 2014, Boss said he was grateful to have more time with his children Weslie, 14, Maddox, 6, and Zaia, 3.
“Honestly, it’s really fantastic,” he told E! “Having the afternoons back has been really great. I miss the whole fam over there, I miss everybody. But it’s the next chapter of life and it’s been really great just having that time back and that’s what it’s about, time. It’s our most precious commodity so while I have it, I’m soaking it all up.”
On Dec. 14, Holker confirmed her husband of nine years had passed away. “It is with the heaviest of hearts that I have to share my husband Stephen has left us,” she said in a statement to E! News. “Stephen lit up every room he stepped into. He valued family, friends and community above all else and leading with love and light was everything to him. He was the backbone of our family, the best husband and father, and an inspiration to his fans.”
