Kristen Wiig and Fiancé Avi Rothman Secretly Welcomed Twins Earlier This Year

June 18, 2020 at 03:09PM

Kristen Wiig has reportedly been quarantining as a family of four. Us Weekly reported on Wednesday that the former SNL star secretly welcomed twins via surrogacy with fiancé Avi Rothman earlier this year. Page Six also captured Wiig, Rothman, and their two new arrivals on a walk in Los Angeles yesterday. Neither parent has yet confirmed the news.


Wiig kept her motherhood status mostly under wraps. However, she did allude to becoming a parent while hosting an at-home Mother’s Day episode of Saturday Night Live in May. “This is the Mother’s Day show, and at SNL, it’s a very special time to celebrate moms,” Wiig said during her virtual monologue, later adding, “I don’t know if I truly appreciated my mom the first 45 years of my life. But this year I’m feeling especially grateful for her advice, her love. I’m so thankful for all the things she’s taught me, like preparing me to be a mom myself.”

These are the first children for Wiig and writer/actor/producer Rothman, who were confirmed to be engaged in August 2019, months after he popped the question. The couple dated for three years and were first spotted together in 2016 while vacationing in Hawaii. Again, news of their relationship didn’t make headlines until months after their romance began. Wiig was previously married to actor Hayes Hargrove from 2005 to 2009, per People. She dated The Strokes drummer Fabrizio Moretti in 2012, before splitting in July 2013.
