How Taran Met his Children’s Mother?

Both Cobie Smulders and Taran Killam are secretive, to say the least, when it comes to their married life. Despite Taran being a famous comedic actor and being married to a global star, neither he nor his wife like to talk about their personal life in detail.

In an interview on ‘LIVE with Kelly and Ryan,’ recently in September, Cobie spoke about her husband and how they met (no pun intended).

“We were together since we were 22,” as Kelly Ripa exclaimed, her co-host Ryan Seacrest exclaimed, “You were Babies!”

“We were babies, and we survived our 20s together; I don’t how that is possible,” Cobie continued, seemingly still surprised to the fact.

The story of how they met is just as romantically comedic as their lives on-screen. They met at a mutual friend’s birthday party, who was turning thirty. It leads them to initially think their significant other was also as old in the first moments of their dating phase. So they were trying to find out each other’s age without being offensive.
