The Big Bang Theory star Jim Parsons is married to art director Todd Spiewak.
Parsons, who is best known for his role of Sheldon on The Big Bang Theory, married his partner of 14 years in 2017.
“Rather simply, it’s an act of love, coffee in the morning, going to work, washing the clothes, taking the dogs [out]—a regular life, boring love.”
Who is Jim Parsons’ husband Todd Spiewak? How did they meet?
Online reports say that the art director graduated from Boston University in 1999 with a degree in graphic design.
Good Housekeeping reports that the couple met in November 2002 after Spiewak’s boss and Parsons’ best friend set the two up for a blind date. At the time, Spiewak worked as a graphic designer in the advertisement industry.
According to IMDb, Spiewak is the producer of The Big Bang Theory spin-off known as Young Sheldon, which follows Parsons’ character in his early years.
When did the couple get married?
The award-winning couple, who have been recognised by the LGBT youth advocacy organisation GLSEN, married on May 13, 2017.
Their wedding ceremony was held in the Rainbow Room, according to Page Six.
The couple has a “traditional” marriage
Parsons has spoken about his “very traditional” marriage in TV interviews.
He said: “To be in love, to find love in that way, is as close as anything else I’ve found in life that gives me the feeling of being close to God.”
Parsons continued: “I remember when we first got together – I can’t believe I’m going to go into this – when we first got together I can remember lying in bed, closing my eyes but not being asleep and that sensation of light! Light! Light!
“And I was like, ‘Oh, I don’t know what’s going on exactly, but it feels close to something important, eternal.’”
