Inside Nick Gehlfuss’s Secret Family Life with Wife Lilian Matsuda
Nick Gehlfuss has been around forever. His role as Dr. Will Halstead in Chicago Med since 2015 has garnered him a dedicated fan following.
These fans are always looking for more information about his personal life. Gehlfuss, however, is notorious for not revealing much about it. His Instagram is mostly work-focused.
But his wife, Lilian Matsuda, is more open than her husband regarding a select few things about their family life.
Nick Gehlfuss and Wife Lilian Matsuda Are New Parents
Gehlfuss and Matsuda, although cautious about what they share on the internet, do share some tidbits of their family life. Going through her Instagram reveals the couple is new parents to a baby born in late 2021.

After this, in June, they attended a live Colombus Symphony concert, which she commemorated on social media, dedicating the day to their imminent-at-the-time baby.
"Hope you enjoyed your first live concert," she directly addressed her baby, who she called Bebe. We are not sure if it was the baby's real planned name or just a nickname the couple decided upon.
By mid-December, their baby was already here. On December 14, 2021, she posted a tribute to her mother, writing, "I think my baby would laugh when you laugh."
"I will try to be as patient a mother as you were with me." She wrote at the end of the caption, adding, "I love you."
It looked like it was only in January that the couple could finally get some time for themselves. "Parents' night out," Matsuda wrote on her January 25, 2022, post.
