Congratulations appear to be in order for Kristen Wiig.

During an interview with Howard Stern on Wednesday, Feb. 10, the former Saturday Night Live star seemingly confirmed she is now married to Avi Rothman. The happy news was revealed when Kristen discussed her family life during the coronavirus pandemic.

"In my home, I am very lucky about having these two babies and my husband and they make it all better," she shared when referring to Avi. "They've changed my life."

Back in July 2020, E! News confirmed that the Bridesmaids star and Avi welcomed twins via surrogate earlier in the year. The notoriously private couple has chosen not to share any photos of their kids.

In fact, the couple surprised fans in August 2019 when news broke that Kristen accepted a proposal from the screenwriter and photographer. But while appearing on SiriusXM's The Howard Stern Show, Kristen was able to share a rare glimpse into her family life.

They Dated? Surprising Star Couples

The proud mom admitted that promoting her new movie Barb & Star Go To Vista Del Mar has temporarily made it difficult to be completely present with her kids.

"Right now, I'm not going to an actual set, but because of all of this stuff, I'm not as present as I would like to be and it's really hard," she explained. "I'm always convinced they're going to like forget who I am if I'm gone for a day."

Kristen continued, "I am nervous about actually leaving and going to work when that happens because there's something really nice about being home with them all the time. The time is coming and I'm going to do my best to balance and they will come first."

Until things get back to "normal" in Hollywood, the 47-year-old actress is excited for fans to have some laughs thanks to her new movie. And yes, it sure isn't bad having Jamie Dornan play your love interest on the show.

"He was sort of the prototype when we were writing it and we wanted this sort of James Bondy, someone who is known for more serious acting and maybe doesn't have a comedic background," she explained. "When we found out he was doing it, it was like, what?!"
