When one decides to enter the entertainment world, personal-life boundaries get jeopardized and private matters often become a media headline.

However, some celebrities manage to keep their family and personal issues away from the spotlight. Former co-president of Columbia Records, Fredrick Jay Rubin, aka Rick Rubin, who is known as one of the most creative and prolific music producers of all time, is one of them. The eight-time Grammy winner has a girlfriend-turned-wife and a son, but they barely make it to the tabloids.

Given the range of popular artists, the Long Beach native has worked with, ranging from Def Jam, Geto Boys, Beastie Boys, Public Enemy, DMC, Minor Threat, Fugazi, Jay-Z, Greenday, Metallica, Red Hot Chilli Peppers, System Of Down, Adele, Johnny West, Kanye West, and many others, the famous producer has always been an enigma to the general public. Fans have been curious to know how the creative personality operates in both his personal and professional lives.

In this article, we focus on Rick Rubin's marital life with his wife and their son.

The lovebirds, who have been together since 2010, welcomed their first child, a baby boy, in February 2017. They are yet to disclose the baby's name.

Even though we don't know much about the baby, we at least got to see his adorable face when Rubin and his family were spotted catching a flight together out of LAX in July of the same year.

Rubin Resides in Malibu with His Wife and Son

The iconic artist and his family currently reside in his mansion, which he calls "Malibu Oasis." Built-in 1965, the mid-century ranch-style residence was once owned by a non-famous family. But since Rubin acquired it, the property has been one of the most talked-about celebrity houses. The 2298 sq ft mansion is worth a whopping $ 8.1 million.

After purchasing the property in 2011, Rubin spent a decade perfecting every detail of his family home. He needed to maintain a homely environment for his family, and especially for their growing toddler. The house has a perfect domestic chill environment and calmness so that his 'celebrity wife' partner and their toddler can have a homely place to stay.

Besides family retreats, they also host luncheons and gatherings with their close friends at their home.

But how did a busy record producer build a homely environment for himself and his family?

In the 90s, Rubin made regular trips to Malibu, staying in the house he rented for more than a decade. Later, he decided to live in the area permanently as he fell in love with the ambiance. In 2005, he bought his own 1-acre property after his rental was over and decided to make the city his forever home. 

It’s fine if you’re single and your entire life is focused on the studio. But there is something really healthy, creatively, about having separation.

Besides this property, he had bought two possessions nearby in Malibu, which unfortunately got burnt down to the ground in Woolsey's unforgiving fire in 2018. According to reports, one of his staff named Sean G stayed on-site and saved the residing house from any damage by watering the surroundings.
