American Comedian Hasan Minhaj's Personal Life: Is He Married?
Hasan Minhaj is married to his gorgeous wife Beena Patel. The couple tied the knot in January 2015.
The couple first met in college at the University of California. Talking about their love life and first encounter, Hasan said,
"I met the love of my life there. It's wild. When you're living your life, you don't realize that history is happening in real time. So when I first saw her as a freshman, I was just living on the quiet floor in the Thoreau dorms. She was just a girl I had a crush on. I didn't know she'd be my wife."
He explained how his life took a turn when the pair married and moved in together. He said,
“Beena and I didn’t move in together until we got married. We kept it very traditional — Mom, Dad, if you’re reading this — so I had to evolve very quickly. I went from ‘Scarface’ photos to family photos. I’d never had throw pillows in my life, but I’ve now become accustomed to them. And I will say that scented candles are really nice.”
As per her LinkedIn profile, Patel received a Doctor of Public Health from UCLA in 2013. At present, she is serving as a management consultant at MedAmerica.
