Hollywood is a magical place. It is a place where dreams happen and people get famous overnight. And sometimes, people get famous because they get married to someone. Such is the case with Bridget Showalter Pudi. She is a celebrity wife better known as the spouse of American actor Danny Pudi.
Do you want to know more about her? You have probably seen her husband in a television series or a movie. But what about his wife Bridget?
Today, we will take a look at all the information we could gather about the celebrity spouse, starting from her early life, educational background, professional career, and more.
Who Is Her Husband Danny Pudi?
Before we talk about Bridget, we have to talk about her celebrity husband. After all, he is the reason we know a thing or two about Bridget. He is the one who made her famous.
Born in March 1979, Danny Pudi is an American actor, mostly known for his role as Abed Nadir on the NBC sitcom Community. He was born Daniel Mark Pudi, but later adopted the stage name, Danny Pudi.
For his role in Community, he has received three nominations for the Critics’ Choice Television Award for Best Supporting Actor in a Comedy Series.
Daniel Mark Pudi was born in Chicago, as the son of programmer and analyst Teresa Pudi and Abraham Pudi. His parents immigrated to the United States of America when they were young. For example, his mother came from a village in Poland, while his father came from a village in India. His father was from a Telugu-Christian family.
As a young boy, Pudi grew up speaking Polish with his mother and grandmother. Pudi grew up on the South Side of Chicago with his brother Adam Pudi and sister Katherine Pudi.
He studied dance in Chicago and attended Marquette University in Milwaukee, Wisconsin. There, he graduated with a degree in communication and theatre in 2001. Fun fact: he was the first winner of the Chris Farley Scholarship at Marquette.
Following his graduation, he performed in summer stock theatre in Wisconsin. He began his career by joining Stir Friday Night, a sketch comedy ensemble of Asian-American performers.
In 2005, he moved to Los Angeles looking to pursue an acting career and seek television and film roles. Because he worked a remote job at the time, he could attend auditions and avoid the “struggling actor” challenge.
Before joining the cast of Community in 2009, he performed in several television pilots. But Community is the television series that helped him gain recognition.
Some of the movies he appeared in include Road Trip: Beer Pong, Knights of Badassdom, Captain America: The Winter Soldier (cameo appearance), The Tiger Hunter, and voiced Huey Duck in the DuckTales Reboot.
Since 2020, he portrays Brad Bakshi in the Apple TV comedy television series Mythic Quest.
Now let’s talk about Danny’s celebrity wife, Bridget Showalter Pudi. Fame makes privacy impossible. But now and then comes a person who manages to do the impossible possible. Bridget has somehow managed to vanish from the media.
Fans of Danny can only see his wife when the two attend some events, or when he shares a photo of her on Instagram. And that is it.
We cannot even confirm the exact birth date of Bridget Showalter Pudi. She hasn’t disclosed her age to the public. Yet, we can assume that she is either in her late 30s or early 40s. Her husband is 43 years of age as of 2023.
One thing we know about her is that she is a vegetarian. Bridget is very health-conscious and helps her husband stay fit.
Her husband is an athlete, or better said, a runner. He might not be a vegetarian, but his wife helps him incorporate a lot of fruits and vegetables into his daily diet.
The couple lives happily in their little bubble. If you take a look at Danny’s Instagram account, you will see Bridget is an optimistic person.
While she remains away from the spotlight, she is the superstar in Danny’s life.
Marriage To Danny Pudi
While we do not know much about Bridget’s life, we do know about her marriage to Danny Pudi. The two got married in 2004. The American actor has said she was his college girlfriend and that the two met in his freshman year.
At the time, she worked as a teacher while he worked at home as an actuarial recruiter. Once they got married, they left Chicago together. Bridget followed her husband Danny Pudi to Los Angeles where he set out to pursue an acting career.
Do They Have Children Together?
The couple met during their freshman year at Marquette University where the famous actor graduated in communication. They shared their vows in front of friends and family.
They have two children together, twins. Bridget gave birth to James Timothy Pudi and Fiona Leigh Pudi on January 12, 2012. At the time, Danny was shooting an episode of Community while his wife went into labor.
In one interview, the famous actor said his co-star and friend from Community, Ken Jeong, played a good role model. Ken and his wife also have twins. Danny looked up to them and that helped him handle the twin situation.
The children are bright and they enjoy spending time with their parents. Danny and his wife are homeschooling their children. Mrs. Pudi is teaching them everything except social studies. That is Danny’s field of expertise.
The American actor and his family live in a house in Pasadena, California. He purchased the house in 2014.
Is She Related To Michael Showalter?
Michael Showalter is an American comedian, actor, writer, and producer. He came to fame when he was a member of MTV’s The State series. A lot of people think Bridget and Michael are somehow related.
But that is not the case. As it turns out, they only share the same last name. There is no direct relationship between the two.
Is She On Social Media?
Fun fact: while Bridget is trying to stay away from the public, she is present on social media. She has a profile on the social media platform Instagram. But it is a private one. You can find her at @bridgetpudi. We assume she doesn’t accept friend requests from anyone that sends her one. After all, she has only close to 300 followers.
On the other hand, her husband has almost 300k followers on Instagram. And he is the one posting about his wife when they celebrate special days. Bridget Pudi is very supportive of her husband and his career. She is the one pushing toward his dream.
The two enjoy each other’s company. And sometimes, Danny posts funny pictures of them. Like this one where they are masked for Halloween.
What is the net worth of Bridget Pudi? Well, since she is a housewife, we cannot expect her to earn money, right?
Her husband is the one in charge of finances in the household. The good news is that his career as an actor allows him to take care of his family.
The American actor and comedian has a net worth of close to $3 million.
