Why Rachel Brosnahan and Her Husband Jason Ralph Choose to Keep Their Marriage Private
This article has been updated.
News that The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel star, 28, and the Magicians actor, 32, were married first surfaced in September 2018 after they were spotted wearing bands on their left ring fingers at the Emmy Awards.
At the SAG Awards on Sunday, Brosnahan said that she and Ralph have actually “been married for years,” but clarified her choice to avoid discussing her marriage publicly in the following statement:
“I’ve been quite private about my personal life for a few reasons. The first being that it’s just that…personal,” she said. “Jason and I also noticed early on that, while we are both the leads of successful television series, he has almost never been asked about our relationship while I have been asked on almost every red carpet I have walked in the last 2 years. We both find this double standard problematic and frustrating and opted to redirect those conversations to our work.”
Brosnahan took home the actor for best actress in a TV comedy at Sunday night’s SAG Awards and shared a kiss with her husband before taking the stage.
In her speech, Brosnahan expressed her disbelief to be accepting the prestigious award and went on to honor the people who helped bring the Amazon show to life.
“I’ve wanted to be an actor for as long as I can remember, and to be able to count all of you in the room as my peers, and let alone stand on this stage is beyond my wildest dreams,” the actress began.
“Our too often unsung background actors who work the same hours as us and share the same union as us,” she said. “I couldn’t be luckier to be a part of this amazing group of artists.”

Brosnahan thanked The Magicians actor when she took home the Golden Globe award for her portrayal in the popular Amazon show earlier this month.
“Jason, I love you. I wouldn’t be here at all without you. Thank you,” she said.
