Lucy has dated –
- Tsahi Halevi (2014-Present) – She started dating Jewish-Israeli actor and singer Tsahi Halevi in 2014. Lucy, the first Muslim Arab news presenter on mainstream Hebrew-language Israeli television, kept her relationship with Tsahi a secret until their marriage (in a private ceremony on October 10, 2018) due to fear of harassment. This was because such marriages (between Jewish-Israelis and Arab–Israelis) can attract a lot of negativity due to the decades-old and ongoing Arab–Israeli conflict. Although many congratulated the couple on their marriage, a member of the Knesset (the unicameral legislature of Israel) criticized it – calling it ‘assimilation’. Lucy and Tsahi have a son together named Adam Aharish Halevi (b. March 2021). Lucy also has a stepson through Tsahi’s past marriage to an Israeli dancer named Una Holbrook.
