Brooklyn Nine-Nine Cast's Real-life Couples
"Brooklyn 9-9" became a popular police sitcom during its first seven seasons. Returning for another season of humor, let's take a closer look at the show's stars.
In October 2020, news broke that "Brooklyn 9-9" would be returning to NBC for its eighth season. As the cast's stories unfold even further, we took a closer look at personal lives.
MELISSA FUMERO (AMY SANTIAGO)
Many fans hope that Amy and Jack are in a happy relationship, but their love lives look different in the real world as Melissa is already married.
Right after Melissa Gallo got out of college, she went straight to TV, a soap opera, "One Life to Live." Not only was it a fateful moment for her career but also her love life as she met her current husband, David Fumero, on set!
Fumero, an actor, and former model, had been already starring in the show for a few years and was almost 10 years older than her. The couple got engaged on Christmas of 2006 and got married a year after.
Almost 10 years into their wedding, the couple welcomed their first son, Enzo. Despite her pregnancy, Melissa kept starring in "Brooklyn 9-9." They welcomed their second child, Axel, in February 2020.
STEPHANIE BEATRIZ (ROSA DIAZ)
Stephanie Beatriz is nothing like her moody character Rosa Diaz. Despite the differences in their characters, Stephanie took the part of Rosa to her wedding with Brad Hoss that happened last December.
And even though Stephanie's character is different from Rosa's, they've got something in common. Rosa Diaz came out as bisexual a few months after Stephanie Beatriz revealed that she was bisexual.
"I’m bi, and I'm getting married this fall. I’m excited, nervous, terrified, and so happy. I’m choosing to get married because this particular person brings out the best in me," she told GQ.
JOE LO TRUGLIO (CHARLES BOYLE)
In real life, Joe Lo Truglio is as happy as his character. He started dating his wife Beth Dover, who is known by many for her role in "Orange Is the New Black" in 2010 and proposed to her 3 years after.
A year after they got married. They threw a huge wedding, to which all the cast members of Brooklyn Nine-Nine were invited! Two years later, the couple became parents to a little boy Eli James.
Both the parents love to share pictures of their one and only son on their social media. We must say that he looks really stylish and cute!
KYRA SEDGWICK (MADELINE WUNTCH)
Even though Madeline was a guest role, having appeared in about 10 episodes, she's become one of our favorite characters. The love-hate relationship between Wuntch and Holt captured plenty of viewers.
It isn't easy to believe that this woman has been happily married for 30 years! In real life, Sedgwick wed Kevin Bacon in 1988, and the couple has two children together.
Bacon and Sedgwick are sure that admiration and mutual respect are the keys to longevity in their Hollywood marriage. But it doesn't mean that they didn't have their challenges.
Kevin Bacon once revealed that he used to envy his more successful wife, who was receiving award after award. But in 2010, Kevin Bacon finally got a Golden Globe for the Best Actor for his "Taking Chance."
CHELSEA PERETTI (GINA LINETTI)
Chelsea Peretti is married to the Oscar-winning director Jordan Peele. The actress later revealed that they met on the internet, actually on Twitter, at first.
Despite their star status, the two got married at a closed and very intimate ceremony, with their dog as the only witness!
Their daughter Enigma came into the world a year after that, and her parents are still protecting her from the paparazzi. The actress's pregnancy was written into the script.
ANDRE BRAUGHER (RAY HOLT)
Braugher has been married to the actor-singer Ami Brabson for almost 20 years. Although filming of the show is done in Los Angeles, the actor flew home to the East Coast every weekend for family time.

The longtime actor's breakthrough role came with his Emmy-winning lead role as police detective Frank Pembleton on the 1990s series "Homicide: Life on the Street."
ANDY SAMBERG (JAKE PERALTA)
Honestly, what's the 9-9 without Jake? Even though Peralta acts childish a lot of times, he's the soul of the force. His love story with Amy has become one of the most interesting and inspiring storylines in the show.
In real life, Andy Samberg is also happily married to a very talented musician, Joanna Newsom. In fact, Rolling Stone calls the California-native Newsom "the best-known harpist in American indie music."
Andy and Joanna met, all thanks to another SNL star. According to U.S. Weekly, Andy was already a huge fan of Joanna's music before meeting her and frequently went to her shows.
Andy Samberg is a known SNL star, and Joanna saw programs with him. When Joanna befriended SNL alum Fred Armisen through her label boss in 2008, the two were officially introduced to each other.
Five years later, they got married. Since the couple was in no rush to start a family, it took a few years before welcoming their first child and daughter to the world.
TERRY CREWS (TERRY JEFFORDS)
In the show, Terry is a strong kind man who's into his job and his family and is always ready to help out his friends when needed. Surprisingly, he's like that in real life too, and even has the same name!
Crews’ real life is not all that different now, as the NFL-football-player-turned-actor is married to Rebecca King-Crews for 30 years, and the two have five kids.
DIRK BLOCKER & JOEL MILLER (HITCHCOCK & SCULLY)
Although there are juicier love stories on Brooklyn Nine-Nine, Hitchcock and Scully's bromance has quickly become another favorite part of the show for many fans.
As one half of the 99’s bumbling duo, Dirk Blocker does a good job in real life. The actor has been married to Danielle Aubuchon for almost 30 years. The couple is raising two kids.
Miller has great rapport and chemistry with his wife, Tamara McKinnon, and the couple has two children following 36 years of married life.
