Kristen Wiig slyly revealed that she’s married! The Bridesmaids actress, 47, chatted with Howard Stern during her February 10 appearance on his radio show and referred to her partner, Avi Rothman, as her husband. “In my home, I am very lucky about having these two babies and my husband,” Kristen gushed about her time in lockdown with her family. “They make it all better and changed my life in that regard.” Now that we know the Saturday Night Live alum has exchanged her “I dos” with her love, learn more about Avi Rothman with the five facts below!

Kristen & Avi Have Been Together Since 2016

Kristen turned heads in 2016 when she was spotted making out with a “mystery man” on a sandy Hawaiian beach. It turns out that man was none other than Avi. This was Kristen’s first significant romance since she broke up with The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti in 2013. Before that, she was married to actor Hayes Hargrove from 2005-2009. Even though the world got its first glimpse of Kristen and Avi’s love in 2016, they were supposedly dating “secretly” for a few months. “He’s her boyfriend. They’re really happy together,” People reported at the time.

Avi & Kristen Have Two Children

While it’s not clear when Avi and Kristen officially tied the knot, fans learned that the couple became parents in June 2020. The couple welcomed their twins via surrogate in early 2020, but the news didn’t become public until the summer. Just weeks after fans learned that Kristen and Avi became parents, the couple was spotted out enjoying a walk in Los Angeles with their infants strapped to their chests in carriers!

Avi Is An Actor

 Avi actually has a number of acting credits on his IMDB page, mostly taking on roles in shorts or making guest appearances in TV shows. He also starred in the TV Movies Codependents, A Mother’s Rage, Partners and Modern Day Jesus.  “I guess I was always attracted to comedy ever since I was a kid,” Avi told The Laugh Button in 2010.

“I remember I used to imitate my grandparents… I think a lot of people in my family had good senses of humor… My brother, who is ten years older than me, would always make me laugh. He always seemed to have an easy time finding humor in different situations.” Avi even appeared alongside his wife in Wonder Woman 1984 — well, sort of. While Kristen had a leading role as Barbara Minerva, aka Cheetah, in the sequel, Avi appeared in a rather small role in the film. He’s credited as playing Black Gold Hotshot Aide in the action-packed movie.

Avi Is A Writer

Besides just starring in Codependents, Partners and Modern Day Jesus, he also wrote the films and is credited with writing a number of short films, as well.

Avi Enjoys Yoga

“I guess most of the characters I develop I draw from real people and real experiences. The Yoga Guy character comes from real experiences. He’s actually a combination of a few people,” he told The Laugh Button. “My sister got me into yoga about seven years ago. For a while, I became addicted and was in class 5 times a week. I’m usually the quiet one in class, generally keeping to myself. I love observing people… At times I thought there were so many characters in my yoga class. I would see a lot of guys blatantly hitting on and trying to pick up women… and vice versa.”
