A San Rafael man is in the running to the Redbook's 2014 “Hottest Husband in America.”
Matt Alba’s wife, Sarah Alba, entered him into the contest without telling him. The online magazine recently narrowed the more than 1,500 submissions to a top 25 contenders, and he is one of them.
Alba told the Marin Independent Journal he wasn’t surprised his wife entered him in the contest — he said she has a “fire in her” — but he was surprised to have become a finalist.
In Alba’s bio his wife describes her husband, a San Francisco firefighter, as “truly selfless” when it comes to their relationship and parenting their 4-year-old daughter, Ashlyn.
If Alba wins the contest, the couple will receive a five-day trip worth $5,400 to the Hyatt Regency Curacao Golf Resort, Spa and Marina.
Voting for the contest ends on Oct. 28.
