Jordan Peele’s debut film was a grand success, but that isn’t the only news he’s excited about. Our Chelsea Peretti wiki will reveal information about her pregnancy, career, and more! If you want to learn all about this comedic couple, keep on reading!

With the release of his racial horror film, Get Out, Jordan Peele did not go unscathed. Despite the film’s rare and initial 100% approval rating from Rotten Tomatoes, Hollywood A-lister, Samuel L. Jackson was not having it. He criticized the Hollywood system for choosing a cast of black British actors to star in a film about U.S. race relations. Peele, however, does not seem phased by the reaction —the film made him the first African-American writer-director to earn $100 million with his debut movie. The filmmaker is definitely getting his boost in Hollywood fame, but the reaction of his film isn’t all he’s excited about. Here are some fun facts about Jordan Peele’s wife, Chelsea Peretti.

She is Expecting Their First Child

Jordan Peele and Chelsea Peretti are happy parents! People reported last week that the dad-to-be is madly in love with his wife’s transformation during her pregnancy. “We’re so excited,” he said. “It’s surreal and cool. My wife is just a very beautiful and spectacular pregnant person.” Hiding it was impossible and Peele remarked that he was happy about the warm reactions they received—especially their comments about the child being “comedy gold.” 

She Eloped with Peele

In an episode of Late Night with Seth Meyers, Jordan Peele announced in late April 2016 that the couple were married. He said, “I am married to actress Chelsea Peretti” near the end of a comedy skit with his co-star, Keegan-Michael Key.


Peretti announced their elopement on Instagram, saying that their dog was the only witness. When asked about why Peele chose to elope over having a wedding, he told People, “I’m not a very crowd-oriented person. I feel like I’m great one-to-one, I’m okay with two people, with three I’m a little bit worse.” In March 2013, the couple began dating and in November 2015, they were engaged.

Her Net Worth is Half a Million

 Considering the challenges and competition of stand-up comedy, Peretti is doing quite well for herself.
