Larry David's leading lady off-screen is his beautiful wife, Ashley Underwood.

The Seinfeld co-creator met his future bride at a party hosted by two Hollywood stars in 2017. They tied the knot three years later. 

But who is Ashley Underwood and what has the funny-man said about her?

"We were seated next to each other, I think with that in mind," Larry later told The New York Times

Both parties were invited because Ashley is a producer who worked on Sacha's Who is America? while Isla starred in an episode of Curb Your Enthusiasm. 

"Much to her surprise, I left before dessert," Larry told the outlet. "I was doing so well, banter-wise, I didn't want to risk staying too long and blowing the good impression."

Ashley moved in with Larry and his daughter 

Two years after they met, Ashley moved in with Larry and his oldest daughter, Cazzie, who had returned to the family home for a couple of years. 

Not that it was smooth sailing. A year into their co-habitation and during the COVID-19 pandemic, Larry confessed there were often raised voices in their household. 

"There's not a moment in the day when there isn't friction between at least two of us," he told The New York Times. "Then when that gets resolved, two others are at each other's throats and it's invariably about dishes."

They got married in 2020

Larry's second marriage - he shares two children with his first wife, Laurie David - took place in Southern California in 2020.

However, Ashley later revealed that her husband had previously vowed never to tie the knot again.

In a birthday message to him in 2021, she wrote: "Happy birthday to this lovely man who did two things this past year he swore he'd never do, get another dog and another wife. Here he is searching for a way to escape both. We love you! HBD Larry ."

She gets his sense of humor

Fortunately for Larry, Ashley understands him… and his sense of humor. 

She even gets to use it to her advantage, like when she's ready to leave a party. 

"We’ll be at a dinner party," she explained to GQ in 2020. "And Larry will take his last bit of food and just stand up for us to go. I just shrug. He gets the laugh, and I get to ride his coattails."

They keep a low profile

Despite careers in the spotlight of the entertainment industry, behind the scenes Larry and Ashley are private. 

They reside in a luxury home in the Pacific Palisades neighborhood of Los Angeles where they live with their beloved pets, including Elwood - the cat Ashley brought with her when she moved in with Larry - and the Australian shepherd, Bernie, who they adopted together.
