The Norwegian director tied the knot with her long-time boyfriend, Kristofer Hivju, in an intimate ceremony on August 22, 2015. Since the HBO actor was already a part of George R.R Martin's fantasy show by then, he was famous by then and consequently, their wedding ceremony was a subject of newspaper headlines. Molvær and her husband used to date for a few years before they made the clutch decision to exchange their vows, perhaps after getting well-settled in their respective career paths.
Molvær tries her best to keep personal things private, yet she often shares snaps with her boyfriend turned husband on her Instagram. Similarly, the love birds even attend several public events together, like most of the celebrity couples. Back in April 2019, fans were thrilled to see Molvær accompanying her beau, Kristofer, in the season premiere party of "Game of Thrones." Likewise, earlier this year, the married duo graced the SAG Awards 2020 for the same show.
In August 2020, the two will enter their fifth marriage anniversary, and they couldn't be happier. Five years into their marital bond, there are no signs of any conflicts or divorce between them, and we wish things stay the same in the future as well.
