Matt Rife Wiki

Matt Rife was born in Columbus, Ohio and is currently being seen on the arm of the beautiful Kate Beckinsale. Sure, he’s only 21 years old, but can we really say that Kate Beckinsale looks like she’s in her forties?! No! Age ain’t nothing but a number, baby, and these two seem to be loving the attention.

But what does he do, you ask? The young man has been a stand-up comedian since he was 15 years old, and recently expanded his horizons into acting. (Maybe his new girlfriend can put in a good word for a few auditions!)

Referred to as the “Justin Bieber of Comedy,” Matt Rife has certainly held his own on comedy stages. He’s opened for acts such as DL Hughley, Ralphie May, Tommy Davidson, Dane Cook, and many more!

Matt Rife has accomplished many things in his young life. The 21-year-old is best known for his appearance in the seventh season of Nick Cannon‘s, Wild ‘N Out. He was the youngest cast member on the show that season. At the time, he was also the youngest person ever to perform on BET’s ComicView! Rife has appeared on Gamers’ Guide to Pretty Much Everything, which aired on Disney XD.

Reportedly, Matt Rife met Kate Beckinsale through a mutual friend. As told by a source, “They quickly started flirting, went on their first date and it’s continued since.” Despite the vast 22-year age difference, the couple are too much in love to keep their hands off each other, let alone dwell on the age gap!

Apparently, Beckinsale’s family and friends approve of the young man. “Everyone in Kate’s circle loves Matt and are so supportive of this relationship,” the source says. “He really is the sweetest guy and makes her so happy! Her entire family thinks he is the nicest and most lovely person.”

“He is very mature for his age and is a great guy,” the source adds.

Kate Beckinsale has been married twice before she started dating the younger man. She has an 18-year-old daughter named Lily Mo Sheen with her first husband, Michael Sheen. After the couple’s divorce in 2003, Beckinsale married Welsh actor, Len Wiseman in 2004.


After 12 years of marriage, Beckinsale was served divorce papers by Wiseman. After their split, Wiseman was seen with much younger women, while Beckinsale stayed away from media attention. As they say, time healed all wounds as Matt Rife is not only handsome, but seems to be totally smitten with the Underworld actress.

Rife was vocal about his older girlfriend in a now deleted Instagram post. The post had Rife playfully posing next to a Senior Citizens Center sign that said, “Age is just a number,” with a heart emoji.

He captioned it, “Age is just a number. Find someone you love, and take their breath away…even if that means putting a kink in their oxygen tank cord. #LifeAlertTypeOfLove.”
