We’re Wiig’in out! While chatting with Howard Stern on The Howard Stern Show, Kristen Wiig confirmed that she is, in fact, married to longtime beau Avi Rothman after the couple welcomed twins via surrogate in June of last year. 

When Stern asked the Saturday Night Live alum, 47, if she was happy in her life, she casually slipped in the big news that she and the 48-year-old quietly tied the knot.

“Well, look… Besides the fact that we are where we are — it’s hard to not feel so much of the sh*t and struggle that’s going on — in my home, I’m very lucky about having these two babies and my husband,” Wiig said of how her family has held her up throughout the ongoing coronavirus pandemic.

“They make it all better. It’s changed my life.”


OK! previously reported that Wiig and her longtime boyfriend — now husband, as she says — were engaged after first being linked in 2016. However, they were pretty tight-lipped regarding that chapter of their life as well.

In fact, the couple has been extremely private about their relationship throughout the years. They were first photographed in May 2016 packing on the PDA when they went on a romantic getaway to Hawaii.

This marriage is Wiig’s second. She previously wed actor Hayes Hargrove in 2005 before the couple split in 2009.

“It’s the best,” she told Entertainment Tonight in December. “I know everyone always says that, and everyone says, like, it changes how you look at the world and how you see love. Now it’s just, like, such a bigger thing, and all of that stuff is so true.”

She added, “Especially being in this business, you’re on your own a lot, and you make your own decisions. It can be very sort of, like, an isolated existence. Now that I have kids, it’s like, ‘Oh, I don’t want this to be about me, I don’t wanna think about me anymore.”
