Carter Belfort: Early Life and Family

Carter Belfort is the second child and the only son Jordan, and Nadine Caridi had. He is a New Yorker born on August 15, 1995. Even though he was born to a rich dad, we can see that he must have had a very stressful childhood.

When Carter was born, Nadine and Jordan’s relationship had turned sour. They both spent most of their energy quarreling with each other when and if Jordan was around the house.

It was primarily because of Carter’s father, Jordan Belfort, lifestyle and addiction. He spent most of his time either at work, partying, or high because of drug consumption.

Needless to say, as a child, seeing your parents fight every day must have had a lot of stress. Also, as a son having Jordan, a less-than-ideal father figure might have had a negative impact.

His father- Jordan Belfort

Jordan Belfort comes from a humble background. He married his high school sweetheart Denise Lombardo in the year 1985. 

Jordan was just 23 years old. 

Jordan was making his living selling Italian Ice. He soon went bankrupt and started looking for a job. He worked for L.F. Rothschild, a trainee stockbroker. It is where he sharpened his skill and knowledge about stocks. Soon he was terminated from the job due to the Black Monday stock market crash.

Belfort went on to start his own company Stratton Oakmont. 

He met Nadine Caridi at one of his office parties. Nadine was introduced to Jordan by her boyfriend. They got married in 1991. The couple had two children from their marriage, Chandler Belfort (daughter) and Carter Belfort (son).

Note: Jordan Belfort didn’t have any kids with Denise Lombardo.

Jordan Belfort earned a lot of money from money laundering and securities fraud (penny-stock scam). He used the money to finance his frivolous lifestyle. Soon Belfort was arrested for his crime. He spent 22 months in prison for his crime. Carter Belfort’s father has to pay 50% of his income towards restitution. The total restitution amount is USD 110 million.

Carter’s mother, Nadine Caridi

Nadine Caridi was a British model who was attending the party thrown by Jordan. Carter’s mother was introduced to Jordan by her ex-boyfriend Alan Wilzig.

Alan wrote on his Facebook, “Twenty-odd years ago while “The Wolf” was still growing his fangs, I had my first post-college relationship. At the end of year 2, as friendly-exes I took Nadine to Jordan Belfort’s July 4th Westhampton Beach House party, where the two of them met. He left his high school sweetheart wife to marry her, and the rest you can see in the movie.”

The movie and the book written by Jordan suggest that Nadine was attracted to Jordan’s lifestyle, wealth, and success. He accuses Carter’s mother of being a golddigger.

Jordan says, “To call someone a gold digger is always more complicated than that. Was my second wife a gold digger? Well yeah, but she loved money and nice things. It wasn’t like I was a fat, 60-year-old man with a potbelly and no hair – I was a handsome 25-year-old guy myself. I was no fucking Robert Redford, but you get the point. Certain women gained a reputation as gold diggers in the early 2000s, but you can always look through that. But I don’t think there is also anything wrong with a woman liking nice things. It is a biological reflex action to want a man who is going to secure the future of your children. This goes back to the caveman days.”

In an interview, Nadine accused Jordan of doing crack in front of the newborn baby. In addition, he was a drug addict who was sexually active with hookers and came home late.

Nadine divorced Jordan in 2005 stating alcohol and drug abuse as the reason.

Nadine Caridi is now married to Frankie Macaluso. Nadine has now changed her name to Nadine Macaluso. She is now a Somatic Therapist.


He has an avid interest in education and knowledge. He has a high school diploma from Vistamar School and completed higher studies from Muhlenberg College.
