The comedian and her long-term partner have four children together. Their last tot, Minnie Ida was born in 2013 and it wasn't revealed until they filed for the baby girl's birth certificate, a year later. The couple has two other daughters, Pearl, 13, Lucille, 9, and one son, Jack, 8.

A bond beyond vows

There are no reports to confirm when and how Maya and Paul started dating. If we catch on the hints, they came across each other sometime in 2000. Many speculate that Paul made an appearance at an episode of SNL where he came in contact with the sensation humorist. No further details could be obtained as the couple remains tight-lipped.

Their mutual-fondness and love for each other became most obvious in 2014. For the first time, Maya played a role in one of her beau's movie, Inherent Vice. In an interview with Variety, the Good Place actress finally revealed some inside details, saying:

I love watching [Anderson] work. It’s so exciting to see someone who’s so clearly their own and has so much confidence about their own vision. It’s beautiful to watch.

They are exemplary

Rudolph and Anderson managed to create a history that has no mark in books or any paper. They've been together for almost two decades and their integrated lives splashed no controversies ever. It's so cutesy that Maya actually refers to Paul as her husband, even though they never married.
