Daniel Tosh’s Wife, Carly Hallam, Marriage and Gay Rumors

Daniel Tosh has been married to his wife, Carly Hallam, since April 2016, and together, they have two children. Daniel Tosh is not gay, even though he has been outspoken in supporting the LGBTQ community.

Daniel Tosh is an American comedian, writer, and producer. He has found success in his career efforts over the years and so he has on the home front. Tosh’s brand of comedy may not appeal to everyone, but it sure made him famous enough to become a celebrity. One might even go out on a limb and say his comic writer’s wife finds him funny, at least.

It has been years since Daniel Tosh’s marriage to Carly Hallam hit the airwaves, but a lot had been going on before then. And though the gay rumors surrounding the comedian were mostly squashed with news of his wedlock, are there still some facts behind them yet to be revealed? From his married life to details surrounding his sexuality, in this article are the important things you should know about Tosh.

Daniel Tosh and his wife, Carly Hallam, have been married since 2016, but it did not become public knowledge until over two years later. They married precisely on the 15th of April 2016 in a private wedding ceremony held in Malibu, California, United States of America. His wife, Carly Hallam is a Florida-born actress and comic writer. She had been working with her would-be husband way before the two found their way to the altar.

Notably, Carly Hallam has been a writer for her husband’s show Tosh. O since 2012 and has appeared in several episodes since it started. A member of the Writers Guild of America, Carly Hallam has also worked on popular projects like the successful crime comedy show Brooklyn Nine-Nine. In addition to screenwriting, she has been credited as a story editor. Though primarily a writer, Hallam has also featured in some films, including New Low and Two If by Sea: The Hobgood Brothers.

She is quite an avid user of the internet, and her social media personality reveals her playful and sarcastic side. In fact, it is believed that Carly Hallam and her husband are more alike in that regard than anything else. Celebrity status aside, considering that the couple both had active social media pages at the time, not letting their marriage slip for two years must not have been easy.

The way they began their marriage is yet another reflection of how far public figures can go to keep their personal affairs private. Although the comedian did drop some teaser tweets, he never mentioned who his wife was. The wedding date was not the only thing they kept secret. Apart from maybe their close friends and relatives, no one was invited to their wedding or even knew they were dating.

With no clear information on when the couple began courting, a good guess would be during those early years of working together on Tosh. O. Also, since both husband and wife spent a substantial part of their lives in Florida, the sunshine state could have been the origin of their love story. With a comedy writer and a comedian under the same roof, we imagine their union is full of laughter, even if the husband is over ten years older than the wife.

Why Do People Think Daniel Tosh Is Gay?

The nature of Daniel Tosh’s jokes and his vocal take on legalizing gay marriage are the genesis of the homosexuality speculations about him. Tosh likes to play around with homoerotic jokes in some of his performances and has been an advocate for the LGBTQ community before it was cool. However, based on his recorded history with women, rumors of him being gay have always seemed off, maybe even slightly ridiculous.

Like many celebrities, with no shortage of beautiful people around him, Tosh has had his flings. However, not many of them lasted long enough to attract the prying eyes of the media, except for his relationship with his actress and model ex-girlfriend, Megan Abrigo. Their relationship may not have led to a marriage like what he had with Carly Hallam, but it lasted for years and was a very public one too.

Except for an official confirmation from the comedian regarding his sexuality, it is safe to say that Daniel Tosh is not gay. Even though some would want to believe he is still in the closet, his relationship history and the fact that he is currently married to a woman and has two children with her suggest otherwise in no small manner.
