How Many Kids Does Kristen Wiig Have?

Kristen Wiig Is A Mom of Two! Here’s What We Know About Her Family

WESTWOOD, CA - DECEMBER 18:  Actress Kristen Wiig attends the premiere of

Funnylady Kristen Wiig: actress, comedian, writer, producer and, as of this year, mother! The Bridesmaids star recently welcomed two children with her fiancé, writer and actor Avi Rothman. The comedian, best known for Saturday Night Live, has been linked to Rothman since 2016 when they were spotted vacationing together in Hawaii. While Wiig, 47, has been pretty mum on her relationship, she joined a growing number of celebrities who have opened up about their struggles with fertility. Though Wiig is very private about her personal life and her kids, there's a bit we know about her growing family.

She Welcomed Twins Via Surrogacy

In June, news broke that Wiig and Rothman welcomed twin babies through surrogacy. They were born in either early 2020 or late 2019. In the September 2020 issue of InStyle, Wiig mentioned her twins were nine months old. She has not released their names or genders.

Motherhood Was a Long Road for Wiig

Wiig said her journey to motherhood was a long and difficult road. "We've been together for about five years, and three of them were spent in an [in vitro fertilization] haze," Wiig told InStyle of her and Rothman. "Emotionally, spiritually and medically, it was probably the most difficult time in my life. I wasn't myself. There are so many emotions that go with it — you're always waiting by the phone and getting test results, and it was just bad news after bad news."

She Opened Up About Her Journey To Help Others

Notoriously private, Wiig decided to talk about surrogacy to help others going through a similar journey. "As private as I am and as sacred as this all is, what helped me was reading about other women who went through it and talking to those who have gone through IVF and fertility stuff," she told InStyle. "It can be the most isolating experience. But I'm trying to find the space where I can keep my privacy and also be there for someone going through it."
