From Good Housekeeping

  • The Twilight Zone producer Jordan Peele and his wife, comedian Chelsea Peretti, have been married for three years.

  • The couple first met in 2013 and eloped three years later.

  • Jordan and Chelsea now have one child together, a son named Beaumont.

As the writer and director of the critically acclaimed films Get Out and Us, as well as the showrunner on CBS All Access' new Twilight Zone reboot, Jordan Peele has seen his career skyrocket over the past few years. But while Jordan has majorly shot into the spotlight, he and his wife, comedian Chelsea Peretti, have managed to keep their relationship relatively private. Here, a deep-dive into the couple's low-key love story.

2013: Jordan and Chelsea meet.

This funny couple's love story began six years ago, when Jordan and Chelsea first met. Although rumors have swirled that Chelsea's Brooklyn Nine-Nine co-star Andy Samberg was the one to initially set her up with Jordan, the comedian herself has said otherwise: In an October 2014 interview with Entertainment Weekly, Chelsea revealed that she initially met her hubby-to-be online.

"Me and Jordan also met on the internet, on Twitter," she said. "He was very complimentary of the Web series I once did." (Smooth move, Jordan. Smooth move.)

2015: The couple gets engaged.

After two years of dating, Jordan and Chelsea decided to take the next step in their relationship. But there was no flashy engagement announcement for these two - instead, the couple casually announced their big news with two very low-key tweets.

At the same time on November 28, 2015, Chelsea wrote that her "fiancé @JordanPeele" had proposed, and Jordan simply tweeted her name and a ring emoji.

2016: Jordan and Chelsea announce that they have eloped.

Five months after their surprise engagement (and several wedding-themed commercials for Booking.com later), Jordan and Chelsea dropped another breaking-news bomb on their fans: They were married! Once again, however, the couple opted for a more subtle "announcement," and Jordan casually slipped the big news into a sketch with his partner in (comedic) crime, Keegan-Michael Key, while on Late Night With Seth Meyers.

Chelsea confirmed the announcement with a more transparent Instagram post the next day. "Eloped a little bit ago ... our only witness was this little guy," the comedian captioned a photo of a wedding bouquet, ring, and the couple's dog.

2017: They welcome their first child together.

Just days after Beyoncé broke the internet with an Instagram post announcing she was pregnant with twins, Chelsea posted a hilarious photo to Instagram sharing that she and Jordan were expecting as well. The photo pictured Chelsea showing off her bump in a dark, mirrored room with the short 'n' sweet caption, "beyonce schmonce." (LOL.)

A few months later, on July 1, 2017, the couple welcomed their first child together, a boy named Beaumont Gino Peele. And yes, Mom and Dad expect him to grow up just as funny as they are: "We've gotten such a warm reaction and people, I think correctly, are already observing that this child will be comedy gold," Jordan told People during his wife's pregnancy.

Today: Jordan and Chelsea continue to be each other's biggest cheerleaders.

It's no secret that Jordan's career has blown up in the past few years, as he's written, produced, and directed such critically acclaimed films and TV shows as Get Out, Us, and CBS' The Twilight Zone. And Chelsea - who has several big projects of her own on the way - has been right by his side through it all.

"There is a lot of time you've got to put into coming to events and talking to people who are interested in the film," Jordan told Us Weekly while at the Los Angeles Film Critics Association Awards in January 2018. "I just couldn't have asked for a more supportive partner, really. When it gets tough, I get to come home and have the funniest person in the world in the room with me. I am forever blessed."

Everyone together now: Awwww.
