Love life and marriage with Larry David
Ashley met Larry David at Sacha Baron Cohen’s birthday party in 2017; Larry made a good impression on Ashley, as she found him very funny, but he then left before dessert, not wanting to ruin the good impression. However, they went on their first date not long after that, and eventually exchanged vows on 7 October 2020, in a small ceremony attended by only the closest of their friends and family members. Ashley and Larry don’t have children together, but they have a pet dog Bernie, and a pet cat Elwood.
Ashley hasn’t mentioned any other men whom she’s perhaps been with, while it’s widely known that she’s Larry’s second wife, as he was married to American writer and producer Laurie Ellen David from 1993 to 2007; Larry and Laurie have two daughters together, Cazzie and Romy.
