Kristen Wiig has been pretty private about the arrival of her twins with Avi Rothman, so it’s no surprise that she would choose to share their names by sneaking them into the end credits of her movie Barb and Star Go to Vista Del Mar, which premiered on Friday, February 12.
The actress, 47, and her costar Annie Mumolo expressed their appreciation to friends and family in a “special thanks” section. The Wonder Woman 1984 star included Rothman’s name on the list, as well as “Luna & Shiloh.”
Last August, the new mom, who ultimately conceived via surrogacy, opened up about her “isolating” IVF experience. “As private as I am and as sacred as this all is, what helped me was reading about other women who went through it and talking to those who have gone through IVF and fertility stuff,” Wiig told InStyle. “It can be the most isolating experience. But I’m trying to find that space where I can keep my privacy and also be there for someone else who may be going through it.”
The SNL alum had a “hard” time not being discouraged by negative results. “You go through so much self-deprecation, and you feel like your partner may be seeing you in a different way and all this other stuff we make up in our heads,” she explained. “But when I did talk about it, every time I said that I was going through IVF, I would meet someone who was either going through it, about to go through it, or had a friend who just did it. It’s like this underground community that’s talked about but not talked about.”
She and Rothman got engaged in August 2019 after three of dating. Wiig confirmed earlier this month that they’ve gotten married, referring to the California native as her “husband” during a Howard Stern Show appearance.
