‘Black Mirror’ star’s Aaron Paul’s wife of a decade is Lauren Parsekian and they have two adorable kids together. How did they meet and are they still together? Read on for more.

Actor Aaron Paul first rose to fame in the addictive series Breaking Bad. From there, Jesse Pinkman’s alter ego went on to make a cameo on the equally amazing spin-off show Better Call Saul. He also entertained fans in multiple seasons of Westworld.

In 2023, Aaron once again dazzled us with his talent in Season 6 of Black Mirror. And while we marvel at the star’s unique acting chops, we also wonder about his personal life, namely, about Aaron’s wife.

As it turns out, the actor is as blessed off-screen as he is on-screen. Read on for details of Aaron’s storybook romance with his wife.

Aaron Paul met his wife Lauren Parsekian in a very Hollywood way.

Aaron met his wife, documentary filmmaker Lauren Parsekian at Coachella in 2010. A year later, they met up again at the music festival and began dating.

Adorably, the actor admitted, “We had our first kiss on a ferris wheel at Coachella.”

After a 2012 Parisian engagement, Aaron and Lauren said “I do” in Malibu, Calif. in 2013.

Aaron Paul has been married to his wife for a decade — and they are more in love than ever.

Ten years and two kids later, and Aaron is seemingly just as in love with his wife Lauren as the day they met. Taking to Instagram to mark their anniversary, the Black Mirror star gushed in part about his partner, “Ten years of [marriage] with this goddess of a woman.”

He added, “You are such a light to this world. We are spoiled by your love and kindness constantly. Thank you for showing our own beautiful family (and complete strangers) what it’s like to be a decent human and to always think of others before oneself.”

For her part, Lauren kept her tribute to her husband short and sweet, saying on Instagram, “Ten years and I truly love you more today than I ever have.”

Aaron Paul shares his two children; a daughter and a son with his wife

Aaron and Lauren’s daughter, Story Annabelle, was born on Feb. 8, 2018. When Story was born, Aaron posted a tribute on Instagram, writing, “My heart.”

Aaron and Lauren also recently had a son. Ryden Caspian Paul was born in the spring of 2022. On April 20, Aaron posted a tribute to Ryden, saying, “My little man. Ryden Caspian Paul. So happy you are out in this world, you beautiful boy you. I promise to make you proud, little guy.”

The following June, Aaron also took to Instagram to profess his love for his kids and wish other dads a happy Father’s Day. “My two greatest accomplishments,” he wrote. “Greatest gift in the world. Hold onto your little ones. Such miracles.”

Why does Aaron Paul want to change his family’s name?

Technically, Ryden Caspian is the only one in the family with the legal last name of “Paul,” as that’s what was written on his birth certificate. However, according to TMZ, Aaron has obtained legal documents to change his, Lauren’s, and Story’s last names officially to Paul as “they want to conform to [Aaron’s] professional name and keep the family name consistent.”

While in the process of changing last names, Aaron and Lauren are also legally changing their son’s name, who was born actually born as Casper Emerson. The same TMZ report notes that “Aaron and Lauren explain they were required to give a name at the hospital and went with Casper Emerson … but later came up with a name they liked better. It’s only now that they’re legally making the switch.”

Aaron Paul’s legal name is actually Aaron Sturtevant.

If someone had said the name Aaron Sturtevant on the street, we definitely wouldn’t know who they were talking about. Turns out, Paul is actually Aaron’s middle name.

That said, Aaron has been going by “Aaron Paul” for as long as he’s been in the business, so it’s about time he changed his name (even though we didn’t know his last name wasn’t Paul in the first place).

Lauren, who was bullied as a child, is now an activist.

Aaron’s wife has talked openly about what inspired her to start the Kind Campaign, an organization that aims to end girl-on-girl bullying.

She told People in 2014 about her peers growing up, “These girls did whatever they could to make me feel alone and ugly and worthless. I completely lost myself. My grades dropped and I lost all my self-confidence.”

Although she now enjoys many perks of being married to a huge celebrity, she remains committed to the organization she launched in 2009.

According to the Kind Campaign website, schools can book assemblies to learn more about preventing bullying. The site also makes it clear that the content of her 2011 documentary, Finding Kind, which she co-created with her college friend Molly Thompson, still rings true today.

Lauren told Teen Vogue in 2012, “It’s important to let girls know that they’re not alone in these experiences.”

As such, another opportunity offered via Lauren and Molly’s non-profit is free participation in Kind Clubs that help girls establish “safe,” “strong and healthy friendships.”
