Mike Bloomberg’s daughter Emma has married for the second time, quietly tying the knot with Jeremiah Kittredge, the scandal-scarred former CEO of a group that advocated for charter schools, The Post has learned.

Emma, 40, the billionaire’s eldest of two daughters, and Kittredge, 33, have kept their wedding a closely-held secret for a year — never announcing the divorce from her first husband or the new nuptials.

The marriage was confirmed Saturday amid Bloomberg’s run for the 2020 Democratic president nomination.

Rabbi Daniel Gropper of the Community Synagogue of Rye in Westchester County officiated at the ceremony, which was held in New York City, a source said.

The couple could not be reached for comment. A spokesman for the Bloomberg presidential campaign did not respond to questions.

Before, the only hint of Emma’s re-marriage came in a previously unnoticed January 2019 synagogue newsletter. It welcomes the couple and Emma’s daughter from her first marriage, Zelda, as new members, and wishes them “Mazel Tov,” or good luck, on their marriage.

Kittredge led the once prominent Families for Excellent Schools, which spent nearly $10 million on TV ads and lobbying for charter schools in 2014, after Mayor de Blasio succeeded Bloomberg as Mayor. Kittredge was an outspoken critic of the city’s public schools.

But the group imploded in early 2018. First, it fired Kittredge over accusations of “inappropriate behavior” by a non-employee. The charges stemmed from a woman’s complaint that Kittredge, during an education conference at a Washington, DC, hotel, “sticks his head in my chest” in an elevator and commented on her “big boobs,” POLITICO reported.

A week later, the organization abruptly closed, citing a lack of financial support. In January 2019, it agreed to pay $425,000 to settle allegations of campaign finance violations, masslive.com reported.

In her first wedding to Christopher Frissora on June 11, 2005, Emma’s dad, then-Mayor Bloomberg, performed the ceremony. The high-society event was reported in the New York Times’ wedding section.

Ten years later, in July 2015, the couple publicly introduced their newborn daughter by her hybrid name, Zelda Violet Frissberg.

Frissora married Valery Westhart in August, 2018, according to their Bloomgingdale’s gift registry. He could not be reached for comment.
