Lauren Parsekian, or Lauren Paul, is most notably known as the wife of the American actor Aaron Paul — best known for his role in Breaking Bad and Westworld. And considering the duo’s years-long togetherness, it could be said that Parsekian has played a significant role in Paul’s success.
The now-married couple first met each other at the 2010 Coachella music festival and became friends. And one year after their first meeting, they fell in love and had their first kiss at the same place.
Speaking to People, Paul said, “We’d met at Coachella, became friends. And then, a year later, we fell in love at Coachella. We ran off together at Coachella. You know, first kiss on the Ferris wheel sort of thing.”
The actor mentioned that it wasn’t like anything he had felt before. He continued, “You know when people say, ‘When you know, you know?’ It was crazy. Even leading up to the kiss on the Ferris wheel, I couldn’t imagine myself being without her. I was like, ‘Wait, can this actually exist?'”
On 2012 New Year’s Eve, the couple was having a romantic time in Paris, where Paul ended up proposing to Parsekian — she said yes, and they got engaged. And on May 26, 2013, the engaged duo walked down the aisle to share the wedding vows.
Almost five years after getting married, on February 9, 2018, Parsekian and Paul welcomed their first child together, a daughter named Story Annabelle Paul. Recently, on April 20, 2022, Parsekian announced the birth of their second child, a son named Ryden Caspian Paul.
