Who Is Celeste Ackelson Brian Baumgartner’s Wife?

If you are well-acquainted with the nine-season-long sitcom The Office that aired on NBC between March 24, 2005, and May 16, 2013, then you’d certainly be familiar with that dim-witted character, the accountant Kevin Malone. His real name is Brian Baumgartner. Brian married a woman named Celeste Ackelson in April 2014.

While Brian has become a popular figure in the American entertainment industry, there is little or no information about his wife of five years. I bet you hardly know anything about her because she was not famous prior to marrying the famous comedic actor. Join us as we x-ray the wife of Brian Baumgartner, Celeste. We are going to focus on knowing her details based on her biography and other key facts about her.

Celeste Ackelson’s Biography

Celeste is one of those who do all they can to keep their personal life really personal. Even now that she is maritally associated with a celebrity, she still shuns the spotlight. This attitude has made it difficult to access details about her. In any case, we at least know that she was born in the United States in 1982 and had what she describes as “an average upbringing.”

We have little or no details about Celeste’s childhood and upbringing (including her elementary and high school). But those who knew her as a child are said that she always loved arts and craft from her earliest days. Thus, she was often seen drawing and creating things with her hands. This attitude has stuck with her into adulthood making her a notable fashion artist. As a result, her astute sense of style trends has been commended in many quarters.

As regards formal education, however, Celeste Ackelson holds a bachelor’s degree in Communications from the Florida International University (FIU). Here are other facts you need to know about her.

1. She Is The Second Wife Of Brian Baumgartner

Celeste Ackelson and Brian Baumgartner wedded on April 28, 2014, after having dated for several months. The wedding was a well-publicized event that was held just at the backyard of their Los Angeles home. Afterward, the reception took place at Wilshire Country Club, a golf club in Hancock Park, Los Angeles. The event was well attended by celebrities like Emily Blunt, Jenna Fischer, John Krasinski, and many others.

The event was quite glamorous with Brian donning a gray suit with a black tie while Celeste wore a splendidly designed ivory-colored lace gown. But what most people attending the wedding failed to know was that this was the second time Brian was walking down the aisle with a woman. He had earlier married Julia Fisher. With Julia, Brian reportedly had a son whose details are currently not known.

2. She Gave Birth Eleven Months After Their Wedding

It is obvious that Celeste Ackelson became pregnant not long after the April 2014 wedding. This is because, as Daily Mail reliably reported, she had a baby with her husband Brian on Tuesday, March 24, 2015. The baby girl who was eventually named Brylee Bea, reportedly weighed 7 pounds, 11 ounces at birth.

The birth of Brylee became a reason for another roof-top celebration not up to a year after that glamorous wedding back in April 2014.

3. Celeste Has No Social Media Presence

Who would have thought such a thing in this modern time? That the spouse of such a high-profile celebrity as Brian Baumgartner, does not have a social media presence? It is quite hard to believe that she has no presence on Instagram, Twitter, Youtube, and not even on Facebook.

4. Net Worth

We have not been able to access any figure to help us ascertain Celeste Ackelson’s net worth. This is because, while she appears at red-carpet events often, we cannot put a hand on what is her particular source of income. Neither is there any reliable independent report on it.

However, her husband Brian Baumgartner is a famous Hollywood and Broadway star. As already said, Brian is particularly famous for playing the memorable role of Kevin Malone in the US adaptation of the BBC show, The Office. But The Office does not exhaust his acting credit. Instead, he has also played major roles in other screen projects such as Disjointed, Arrested Development, and Chicago Fire. In all, Brian has been part of no less than 32 important movies since 2001. Brian is also a great golfer.

It is certainly from all these sources that Celeste Ackelson’s husband has reportedly garnered a growing net worth of $6 million. It seems that Celeste is simply basking in the abundance of her husband’s huge net worth and has no need to be involved in any serious career engagement.
