Get to Know Adam Scott’s Wife, Naomi Scott
Recently, Severance star Adam Scott has been on a roll, landing his first Emmy nomination for Outstanding Lead Actor in a Drama Series last fall and now securing a SAG Award nom for the same part (and with Severance already renewed for season 2, we're expecting more noms for Scott in the future).
Although he’s been captivating audiences as Mark in the sci-fi series, Scott has been dominating the Hollywood scene for decades, having appeared in projects like Knocked Up, Step Brothers, The Good Place and, of course, Parks and Recreation. Not to mention, he has multiple podcasts with fellow actor Scott Aukerman. But Scott’s career isn’t the only thing that’s thriving these days.
The same can be said for his relationship with his wife, Naomi Scott, whom he has gushed about on multiple occasions. But how long have they been together? And how did they meet? Keep reading for all the answers on Adam Scott's wife.
4 ‘Severance’ Season Finale Theories That Would (Kind Of) Explain Everything
1. Who Is Adam Scott’s Wife?
According to IMDB, Scott’s wife, Naomi Scott (formerly Naomi Sablan), is a producer and writer who has worked on titles like The Overnight, Other People, Ghosted and The Greatest Event in Television History. Naomi landed her first producing gig in 2005, when she worked on Jimmy Kimmel Live. And like her husband, she has some acting experience. You may recognize her from Sadie J or Kissing Jessica Stein.
2. How Did Scott and His Wife Meet?
The couple first met in 1998, when they were both in their early 20s, according to Vulture. At the time, Scott was doing a few acting roles and Naomi was producing Internet content, but when they got introduced at a Sunset Boulevard bar, they didn’t exactly hit it off.
Scott revealed that “Naomi left promptly” after the brief interaction, and the producer explained that she was turned off by the fact that he was an actor. But fortunately, she had a change of heart after she saw the comedian work his magic on stage.
3. When Did the Couple Get Married?
After seven years of dating, Naomi and Adam said “I do” in 2005. The details of the ceremony haven’t been made public, but the Severance star did open up to Page Six about the secret to his happy marriage. He told the outlet, “I found that just looking at an iPhone while my wife was talking to me is not a good strategy. Just put it in a drawer and spend time together.”
Apparently, his method worked, because it’s been more than 15 years, and the pair are still going strong. Back in May, he told Us Weekly, “I just love [Naomi]. I think she’s the coolest, the smartest, the funniest and the most beautiful. It’s pretty simple. So, I just hope that she still likes me most of the time. It’s worked out and I’m really, really lucky, but I just can’t imagine anything else.”
4. Have They Worked Together?
They sure have. In 2012, the couple launched their own production company, called Gettin’ Rad Productions, which focuses on comedy content. And so far, their most notable works include the Adult Swim series, The Greatest Event in Television History, and the film Other People starring Jesse Plemons and Molly Shannon.
By 2014, the duo inked a deal with Universal Television. Per The Hollywood Reporter, Bela Bajaria (executive vice president) said, “We love Adam’s work as Ben Wyatt in our beloved Parks and Recreation, and we are excited that his and Naomi’s passion to produce will continue with us at Universal TV. We look forward to making some very interesting and successful new TV shows with their company.”
As of now, the couple has multiple projects in the works, including Quitman 10 + 2, It's Not You and Gross Girls.
5. Do They Have Kids?
Scott and his wife share two children: a roughly 13-year-old daughter named Frankie and a roughly 15-year-old son named Graham. And apparently, they’re huge fans of their dad’s show, Severance. Scott told Us Weekly, “Severance has really connected with them. They love it. It’s the first time they’ve ever been interested at all in something I’ve done, at least that they’ve admitted to me.”
He continued, “I can’t imagine that they’re keeping a secret that they’re secretly fascinated by my work and not telling me about it. But they really do love it. I think they just never wanna watch anything I’m in because they get enough of me at home.”
The proud dad also described them as “incredibly smart, hilarious, caring people,” and it has a lot to do with their mom. In honor of Mother’s Day in 2021, Adam wrote on Instagram, “Tough to put into words how lucky I am to have a partner as brilliant, hilarious & beautiful as @nfscott. I marvel at what an incredible mother she is—and the kind, smart, caring people our kids are as a result. She’s been holding down the fort for months as I attempt to parent by zoom—and deserves a year of Mother’s Days.”
6. The Couple Has Passed Their Activism on to Their Kids

While the two teens have an interest in their dad's show, it turns out that the Scott children also have a passion for activism.
In 2019, Scott told SheKnows, “My wife and I try to be politically active and community-minded and have tried to pass that same spirit on to our kids. Suffice it to say, these last few years have been a great lesson in putting practice into action. This movement that Stonyfield started to remove toxic pesticides from kids playing fields was another great learning lesson too.”
Scott also added, “We try to keep the kids grounded and away from all of the Hollywood stuff so they can be kids as long as possible.”
If you ask us, this power couple deserves an award for setting such a great example.
7. Does Naomi Have Any Social Media?
Unfortunately, Naomi does not have any social media. But luckily for us, her husband does, so we often get intimate photos of the pair, like the snap above, which Scott posted on the way to the Golden Globes in 2023.
Also, don't get confused by clicking on the Instagram account for another famous Naomi Scott, who is an actress from titles like Terra Nova and the live-action Aladdin (2019).
