Elizabeth Olsen's husband, Robbie Arnett, may not be as famous as his actress wife, but he has a successful career of his own—and together, the pair has made an art of keeping their relationship out of the spotlight (they even eloped in secret!). So who is the man who bewitched Scarlet Witch’s heart? Here's everything there is to know.

Does Elizabeth Olsen have a husband?

Elizabeth Olsen does indeed have a husband. She's married to musician Robbie Arnett. Arnett is one-third of the indie band Milo Greene, a trio of singer-songwriters. The band has released three albums: their self-titled debut album (2012), Control (2015) and Adult Contemporary (2018).

The band's music has appeared in the movies Fun Size (2013) and The F--k It List (2020), and in the TV series Santa Clarita Diet (Netflix) and Supernatural (The CW). Arnett also worked as the music coordinator for 2019’s Jexi, starring Adam Devine.

In addition to making music with his band, Arnett has professionally collaborated with his wife. The couple co-wrote a children’s self-care book, Hattie Harmony: Worry Detective, which came out in June 2022. Their follow-up, Hattie Harmony: Opening Night, will hit shelves this year.

Elizabeth Olsen reportedly met her husband, Robbie Arnett, while on vacation in Mexico in February 2017. The couple seems to have moved pretty fast—by March 2017 a source told E! News, “They are in an exclusive relationship and Lizzie is excited about him.”

Olsen confirmed the relationship in August 2017 on Sway’s morning show when she announced, “My boyfriend’s in a cool band called Milo Greene!” Sway responded by asking, “Did you just shamelessly plug your boyfriend’s band?” To which she replied, “Yes I did, because I really like ‘em and I really like him.”

Awwww, we love a proud partner!

When did Elizabeth Olsen and her husband get married?

Elizabeth Olsen shocked her fans in a June 2021 interview with Variety by referring to Robbie Arnett as her husband. However, the couple did not confirm their marriage until a year later, in June 2022. In a joint appearance on SiriusXM’s The Jess Cagle Show, Olsen said, “We eloped and then we had a wedding at another time and it was before COVID.”

The two first sparked marriage rumors when reports came out in July 2019 surrounding their engagement. While the exact date of their marriage is not known, Olsen’s admission that it took place prior to the COVID-19 lockdown in March 2020 suggests they may have tied the knot in late 2019 or early 2020.

Did Elizabeth Olsen have a wedding?

Elizabeth Olsen did have a wedding with husband Robbie Arnett. The actress first let slip the pair had tied the knot when she referred to Arnett as her husband in a June 2021 interview with Variety before waiting a year to confirm the union in June 2022.

Olsen has explained, “We eloped and then we had a wedding at another time and it was before COVID.”

This indicates the two held two separate ceremonies: one where they legally married and one where they celebrated with a wedding. However, the notoriously private couple has kept the details and even photos of their wedding very close to the vest.

Why did Elizabeth Olsen elope?

Elizabeth Olsen and Robbie Arnett haven't publicly explained why they chose to elope. The couple has famously kept their relationship private, even waiting two years to reveal they'd tied the knot at all.

In a 2022 cover interview with Harper’s Bazar U.K., Olsen discussed how growing up with sisters Mary-Kate and Ashley made her fiercely protective of her privacy. “I felt very clear about how I was going to navigate lots of things because of watching them,” she said. “I don’t think of living my life as a public person, I just think of living my life, and then I have this job.”

Does Elizabeth Olsen have children?

At this time, Elizabeth Olsen does not have any children. Her husband Robbie Arnett also does not appear to have children. However, the pair are the authors of the self-help children’s book Hattie Harmony: Worry Detective, which released on June 28, 2022, and its sequel, the forthcoming Hattie Harmony: Opening Night.

If the way they have kept tight-lipped about their relationship is any indication, it's likely they will keep any news about deciding to expand their family pretty hush-hush, too.
