Riz explained during his appearance that he chose to stay in California after shooting a film there in late 2020 because his “wife’s family” is from the Bay Area. The host noted his mention of a wife, and that he “didn’t realize” the actor wasn’t single.

“Not very long, actually. It’s the first time I’ve ever mentioned it in an interview. So, congratulations on this incredibly exciting scoop,” he quickly explained.

“I mean, I guess I don’t really feel it’s generally that relevant, so I don’t delve into my personal life or my dating history or even family life much,” he added.

He said “the main reason” he spoke on private life more recently is because he thought people weren’t taking the coronavirus pandemic seriously. He also had two relatives die from the virus in 2020.

“I felt like talking about it and saying, ‘Hey, look, this is a real thing. It’s affected me and my family,” he explained, adding that he didn’t think it’s “necessary” for fans to know everything about him.

“If I was quite a private person, I wouldn’t be doing a podcast with you being like, ‘Hey, check out these films.’ ‘I’m on Twitter.’ I guess it’s just about having boundaries.” He did not disclose his wife’s name, however.

Congratulations to Riz Ahmed! These stars also just got married…
