Bridesmaids actress Kristen Wigg is engaged to boyfriend Avi Rothman


Kristen Wigg is a bridesmaid no more as the American actress is now engaged to longtime boyfriend Avi Rothman. The happy news was confirmed on Friday by People magazine, who report that the happy couple actually got engaged earlier this year after a three-year relationship.

The Bridesmaids star was first spotted wearing a diamond ring on that all-important finger in May during a screening of Booksmart at The Theatre at Ace Hotel in Los Angeles. The private couple were first linked in 2016 after they enjoyed a PDA-filled holiday in Kauai, Hawaii – but even then they were reported to have been secretly dating for months.
