Secret Unveiled: 5 Reasons Will Arnett & "Wife" Alessandra Brawn Haven’t Married

Will Arnett's fans have often questioned: Is Alessandra Brawn Will Arnett’s wife? While they have been dating since 2019, and are practically husband and wife, their commitment to each other runs deep. Their connection goes beyond legal ties.

Will Arnett, renowned for his roles in Arrested Development, BoJack Horseman, and LEGO Masters, is not just a talented actor and comedian but also a devoted partner and father. His relationship with socialite Alessandra Brawn exemplifies what many aspire to have, and here are five reasons why they are the epitome of relationship goals without being married.


  • Alessandra Brawn is an American entrepreneur and public relations manager. She is best known for being the girlfriend of Will Arnett, a famous Canadian-American actor and comedian. 
  • Alessandra Brawn is not Will Arnett's wife; they are not married, but she has been his girlfriend since 2019 and they share a son together.
  • Despite having a 19-year age gap, the couple is still going strong because they have five crucial things in common.

Both Will Arnett And Girlfriend Alessandra Brawn Have Been Married Before

Will Arnett and girlfriend Alessandra have both experienced divorce, which can be a painful and challenging process. Will was married to actress Penelope Ann Miller for one year in the 90s, and then to comedian Amy Poehler for nine years until 2016. Alessandra was married to Jon Neidich, a restaurateur, until 2018. They both know what it takes to make a marriage work, and what can go wrong, which explains the cold feet for both going from “Will Arnett’s ‘girlfriend’ to ‘wife.’

Will Arnett opened up about his divorce from Amy Poehler in an interview with The Guardian in 2022. He said that he “cried for an hour” in his car during the “excruciating” process and that he felt like he had “failed” as a husband and a father:

“[...] And I just burst into tears. I just cried for an hour. I couldn’t stop. And then I realized how deep I was in it. And that was really the beginning of the process for me.”

Will and Alessandra are both devoted parents to their children from previous relationships, as well as their son together. The couple has four children: Will has two sons, Abel and Archie, with Amy Poehler, and Alessandra has a son, Nash, with Jon Neidich. They welcomed their first child together, Alexander "Denny" Denison, in May 2020. 

The couple co-parent their children with their respective exes,, and they support each other in raising their kids. Will Arnett talked about how he and Alessandra Brawn co-parent their children with their exes in an interview with People in 2020.

“She’s a wonderful, wonderful mom. She’s very attentive, very loving, very caring, and I’m just so proud of her. She’s really handled this well, and she’s such a great example for our boys."

Despite the challenges of being a father in his 50s, Will wholeheartedly embraces his role as a doting dad. In every photo captured in his social media or by paparazzi, Will adores his new son with pure happiness. How heartwarming! In May 2020, Alessandra Brawn shared a sweet photo of Will Arnett with their son Denny on Instagram in 2020 with a heartfelt caption: "Thank you for being the most incredible partner, the most amazing dad, the most loving man. You make our family whole."

Will Arnett And Girlfriend Alessandra Brawn Prefer To Keep Their Relationship Lowkey

Despite both Will and Alessandra working under intense spotlight (Will Arnett is a renowned voice actor, and Alessandra is one of New York's top socialites), they are not the type of couple who flaunt their relationship on social media or in the press. Unlike other Hollywood couples, they prefer to keep their romance private and out of the spotlight. 

The ultra-private couple went public with their relationship at the 2019 Creative Arts Emmys, but they have made very few public appearances since then. They have also not directly discussed their relationship in any interviews. Will Arnett and Alessandra Brawn value their privacy and their intimacy, and they don't need to prove anything to anyone.


They Don’t Let The Age Difference Affect Their Relationship

Will is 51 years old, while Alessandra is 35 years old. That means there is a 16-year age gap between them. Research shows that couples with an age gap of 10 years or more have a higher chance of breakups and depression than couples with an age gap of 3-5 years or less, due to having less in common and less compatibility.

But Will Arnett and girlfriend Alessandra are proving the contrary, not letting that bother them or affect their relationship. They have a lot in common, such as their sense of humor, their love for family, and their passion for their work. They don't let age define them or limit them.


Much Like Will Arnett, Alessandra Brawn Has A Sense Of Humor

Will and Alessandra both have a great sense of humor, which is evident in their choice of name for their son. They named him Alexander Denison Arnett, but they called him Denny for short.

Why? Because Will joked that he wanted to name him after his favorite restaurant chain, Denny's. Alessandra agreed to go along with it, as long as they gave him a proper first name too. They both thought it was funny and cute, and it shows how they don't take themselves too seriously.

Alessandra Brawn and Will Arnett both entered their relationship with prior marriages, bringing along a few precious bundles of joy. Will co-parents his two sons, Archie and Abel Arnett, with his ex-wife Amy Poehler, while Alessandra has her son Nash from her previous marriage. In 2020, the couple joyfully welcomed their first child together, Alexander Denison Arnett.
