Who is Julianna Margulies married to?

The name of her husband is Keith Lieberthal.

Julianna and Keith tied the knot on November 10, 2007, in an intimate wedding ceremony in Lenox, Massachusetts.

Before their wedding, they first met in early 2006 through a mutual acquaintance. She told Ellen Degeneres while appearing on The Ellen Degeneres Show the story of their unlikely introduction.

“I met my husband at a dinner party I wasn’t going to go to through an agent I didn’t sign with, who I adored … I just can’t go there,” she said, explaining that they stayed friends. “I remembered [the agent’s] birthday six months later and just texted him, ‘Happy birthday,’ and he said, ‘I’m actually here in the city, come have dinner with us.’ I was like, ‘I’ll come for a drink.’ “

Margulies continued: “I was about to start a Broadway show, so I didn’t want to stay out late. Famous last words. I went, and there was Keith. And Keith had gone to Dartmouth, and this agent had been his R.A., and he just happened to be at this dinner.”

But she confessed that she had reservations when Lieberthal approached her that night. “I said, ‘Are you an actor?’ Because as much as I love you all, I can’t. I’m done,’ ”

Margulies added. She was happily surprised to learn that he was a lawyer who was of a similar age and Jewish.

“Kept getting better and better and that was it,” she concluded.

Margulies’ father, Paul, shared more with PEOPLE about their special day after walking her down the aisle.

“It was all traditional. It was very touching. She was radiant. It was beautiful,” he said. “We’re thrilled for her, and the young man she married is a wonderful person. We’re proud to have him as a part of our family.”
