Chelsea Peretti’s Husband – Relationship with Jordan Peele
Peretti’s not really single. She is married to Jordan Peele, who can be considered a male impersonation of herself. The American actor, writer, comedian, and producer is a black man who grew up in New York as the son of a white mother Lucinda Williams, and a black father Robert. Although he dropped out of college, Jordan has become an American celebrity through comedy and acting. He is best known for his role as an FBI agent in the first season of the FX anthology series Fargo, which was released in 2014, and for his role in the American comedy action movie Keanu, which received positive critical acclaim.

The two reportedly met through actor and comedian Andy Samberg, who played with Peretti Brooklyn Nine-Nine in Brooklyn Nine-Nine and was her college classmate. Andy is said to have convinced the two of each other and arranged their meeting which led to their union.
The TV stars got engaged in November 2015, and on April 26, 2016, the couple announced that they were already married. Peretti’s wide-ranging fans thought she was joking when she announced on her Instagram that she had eloped with Peele and her dog was the witness, but reality came when Jordan later confirmed in “Late Night with Seth Meyers” that he and Peretti were already married. The good-looking comedian went even further and explained that they had a secret wedding because he was not geared for crowds and he would not be comfortable with more than two people. Peele and his wife, Peretti, now have a son born on July 1, 2017, and they named him Beaumont Gino Peele.
