Barkhad Abdi is a talented Somali-American actor who gained the limelight through his debut film in 2013. It was the biographical drama film Captain Phillips, and he portrayed the role of Somali pirate Abduwali Abdukhadir Muse, aka Muse.
For his performance in the critically acclaimed movie, he received a British Academy Film Award for Best Actor in a Supporting Role. Additionally, he earned nominations at Academy Award, Golden Globe Award, and Screen Actors Guild Award.
After that, he appeared in many movies and TV shows, including Hawaii Five-0, The Pirates of Somalia, Blade Runner 2049, and Castle Rock. In addition, he will soon be seen as Aklilu in Tyson’s Run and Omar in Agent Game – releasing on March 11 and April 8, 2022, respectively.
While Abdi has gained fame through his professional works and is vividly known among the public, it’s his personal life that has raised the eyebrows of his fans.
Does Barkhad Abdi have a wife?
Abdi lives a very private life away from all the shutters of the camera. Due to that, his personal life matters have remained away from the sightings of the media.
Not only that, if we take a glance at his Instagram and Twitter handles, nothing evident related to his love life could be found. The Blade Runner: Black Lotus actor has only shared posts related to his professional life on those platforms.
However, his official but the inactive Facebook profile has given a little bit of insight. Not only that, but his public appearance from the past has also hinted that he has someone special in his life – which is he is married to a wife.
Nonetheless, Abdi’s romantic life is still mysterious and confusing to many. Going more deeply into the topic, on February 16, 2014, Abdi walked down the red carpet of the EE British Academy Film Awards.
During that event, he was accompanied by a lady. Photographers of Getty Images photographed the two, and Getty Images have uploaded the picture mentioning the lady as Adbi’s wife — Barkhad Abdi’s wife’s name remains undisclosed.

Several online outlets have also mentioned that woman as his partner. All of that hinted that the actor is married and the woman is his wife. On the next day, Abdi also posted the same picture via his Facebook page.
But, just around a week later, on February 24, 2014, the actor posted another picture with another lady. Captioning that picture, he wrote, “My sweeet honey i love you for ever….” That picture was reportedly taken at the 2014 20th SAG Awards on January 18, 2014.

As both of those women were different from each other, it has left Abdi’s fans confused as to who his wife is. To this date, he hasn’t mentioned his partner in any of his interviews or addressed this topic.
As a result, it couldn’t be told who is his wife and who isn’t. And as of this writing, the mystery and confusion still remain.
