Actress and comedian Ilana Glazer, 33, is expecting her first child with her husband, David Rooklin.
The Broad City star confirmed the news exclusively with Entertainment Weekly. In her interview with the news outlet, Ilana was promoting her upcoming debut starring movie role in False Positive, a horror-thriller that’s a stark contrast to her previous comedic roles. In the movie, Ilana plays a character who, along with husband, undergoes nightmarish IVF treatments with a fertility specialist.
Ilana’s pregnancy is completely coincidental with the release of the film, coming to Hulu on June 25th. “This was not supposed to happen this way, but it’s just so eerie and cosmically funny that it has,” Glazer says about being pregnant for the movie’s release. I’m lucky; I’m in control, unlike our protagonist. I don’t feel like I’m having the rug pulled out from under me in any way.”
Ilana and David had reportedly been dating since at least 2014. The writer has kept her love-life out of the public eye. The couple quietly tied the knot in February 2017 at a secret City Hall ceremony.
Congratulations to Ilana and David on growing their family! We wish them all the best as they prepare to become parents.
