Jordan Peele and Wife Chelsea Peretti's Relationship Timeline
Jordan Peele and his wife, Chelsea Peretti, eloped and got married in April 2016. But their wedding was kept a private affair.
Peele only confirmed his marriage when he appeared on Late Night with Seth Meyers with Keegan-Michael Key on April 25, 2016. In a skit, the director and Key helped fans distinguish them apart.
Just then, Peele stated, "I'm married to actress Chelsea Peretti," receiving cheers from the crowd. "And I am not married to actress Chelsea Peretti. We're just dating," Key jokingly added.
The very next day, Peele's wife confirmed the marriage through an Instagram post, revealing they had eloped.
She shared a photo of their pooch sitting next to a bouquet and a wedding band. In the caption, the actress announced, "eloped a bit ago, our only witness was this lil guyï¸."
In 2018, during Peretti’s appearance on Conan, she detailed their wedding and explained that they eloped in Big Sur. A woman named Soaring officiated at their wedding that saw their dog as the only guest.
