More like the sound of silence.

British actor Riz Ahmed has apparently married, though he’s remaining mum on the identity of his new Mrs.

The 38-year-old outed himself as taken on the Jan. 11 episode of Louis Therouxs Grounded podcast, when he disclosed that he’s remained in California after wrapping a film there last year because his wifes family is from the Bay Area, per Us Weekly.

Theroux, quite understandably, told Ahmed he didnt realize the Emmy winner wasn’t single and asked how long hes been married.

Not very long, actually, Ahmed responded. Its the first time Ive ever mentioned it in an interview. So, congratulations on this incredibly exciting scoop.

I mean, I guess I dont really feel its generally that relevant, so I dont delve into my personal life or my dating history or even family life much, he added.

Ahmed doesn’t think he’s being unduly witholding from the public, however: If I was quite a private person, I wouldnt be doing a podcast with you being like, Hey, check out these films. Im on Twitter.’ I guess its just about having boundaries.

Users on the celebrity-gossip forum Lipstick Alley have bandied about stylist Akua Murray-Adoboe’s name as being linked to Ahmed, while Us Weekly noted he was last seen with writer and filmmaker Anya Raza, his date to the 2018 Golden Globes.
