Elvira Lind is Oscar Isaac's wife, and while he is the most famous member of their family, she is a talented filmmaker nominated for an Academy Award.
Having a long and healthy relationship in the entertainment industry has been challenging for multiple celebrities. Still, Danish filmmaker Elvira Lind and Guatemalan actor Oscar Isaac prove that it is not impossible.
Their first meeting was unusual but memorable, and they share two sons, a production company, and similar tastes in fashion. Here's everything you need to know about Lind and Isaac's relationship.

2012: MEETING A "WEIRDO"
Although the "Moon Knight" star prefers to keep most details of his life away from the spotlight, he has shared pieces of information about his and Lind's love story.
One of the reasons Isaac's performance as Llewyn Davis in the 2013 film "Inside Llewyn Davis" was so outstanding was that he would go to parties dressed as his folk singer character.

He attended a party one month before filming started, but instead of talking to others, he just sat in a corner and ate food. A woman he initially described as a "documentary filmmaker" sat next to him a while later, and they talked for a long time.
Isaac added that the filmmaker (later revealed to be Lind) spotted the "weirdo" in the room and went straight to him. He joked that she was probably disappointed after learning that he was in character preparing for his film.
However, Lind later confessed that her favorite dress played a role in her and Isaac's relationship as it helped "lure" him, meaning she was also interested.
2013: FIRST TIME WORKING TOGETHER
One of the best aspects of dating a fellow entertainer is that you can work with them, and that's what Lind and Isaac did one year after their first meeting.
In 2013, Lind created the "Staircase Sessions," where she filmed musicians performing in stairwells. Isaac is a talented singer and guitar player, so she included him in four of the project's 13 videos.
[Isaac] called Lind an "incredible woman" for caring for their newborn while he was working.

JANUARY 2016: RED CARPET DEBUT
Isaac and Lind have not shared the exact date they began dating, but we do know when they first went public as a couple: January 10, 2016.
The Danish filmmaker and the Guatemalan actor attended the Golden Globes at the Beverly Hilton Hotel in California and even took photos together on the red carpet.
Their relationship was confirmed hours later when he kissed Lind before walking up to the stage to accept his Best Actor in a Miniseries or Television Film award for "Show Me A Hero." Before that kiss, nobody knew Isaac had a girlfriend.
FEBRUARY-MARCH 2017: WEDDING AND PREGNANCY NEWS
Lind and Isaac's relationship didn't make headlines again until January 2018, when he revealed that they had quietly tied the knot in March 2017.
The "Ex Machina" star confessed to having multiple reasons to marry Lind. After saying that Danes didn't "believe" in marriage, Isaac pointed out that Lind was not an American citizen when she got pregnant (it was also the first time he talked about her pregnancy).
Isaac added that they wanted to figure out where they would be able to raise their child and become more of a family. He explained:
"Right before [the wedding], my mom was ill, and so I saw [Lind] carrying my child, bathing my sick mom — seeing her do that, I just thought: 'I want to be with this person forever and ever.'"
Isaac said his mother, María Eugenia Estrada, passed away in February 2017, and he married Lind the following month. However, Lind celebrated their fifth wedding anniversary on February 23, 2022, so the couple has different timelines for their wedding.
APRIL 2017: WELCOMING THEIR CHILD
Lind and Isaac's son, Eugene, joined the family in April 2017. The boy has made a few cameos on his mom's Instagram account, but Lind ensures his face is never seen.
The couple named their son after Isaac's late mother, whose middle name was Eugenia. Since Eugene was born weeks after the wedding, Isaac and Lind postponed their honeymoon. In late 2017, they went to the Caribbean.
Isaac also revealed that he performed "Hamlet" at the Public Theater in New York shortly after Eugene was born. He called Lind an "incredible woman" for caring for their newborn while he was working.
The actor admitted that doing "Hamlet" was "physically overwhelming" as he had to perform six shows a week. He spent almost all the time he was not on stage resting his voice.
OCTOBER 2019: A BIGGER FAMILY
After Eugene's birth, the couple stayed out of the news for several months. In October 2019, they welcomed their second son, Mads. Like many other celebrities, they didn't reveal his name immediately.
In February 2020, Isaac and Lind launched their production company and named it after their two kids, Mad Gene Media. The company is based in New York City and focuses on content for podcasts, graphic novels, documentaries, live performances, and short and feature films.
Lind and Isaac proved that they love fashion with the striking outfits they wore for the 2022 Met Gala.
AUGUST 2020: WORKING TOGETHER AGAIN
Isaac and Lind collaborated again in what has been described as their most important job together — "The Letter Room." In the short film, Isaac portrays a prison guard in charge of inspecting letters sent to prisoners.
Eventually, he gets too involved with one of the inmates due to the contents of the letters. The movie premiered at the Telluride Film Festival and was nominated for the Best Live Action Short Film Oscar the following year.
SEPTEMBER 2021: JESSICA CHASTAIN CONTROVERSY
Isaac attracted a lot of attention in September 2021 after stroking, kissing, and smelling "Scenes From a Marriage" co-star Jessica Chastain's arm. The unexpected display of affection happened during the film's premiere at the Venice Film Festival.
Rather than getting jealous, Isaac's wife laughed. Chastain later explained that she and Isaac attended Juilliard together and had been friends for over two decades.
She added that they were both married to other people – Chastain and Gian Luca Passi de Preposulo tied the knot in 2017 and also have two kids – so nothing romantic happened between them.
FEBRUARY 2022: COORDINATED OUTFITS
Lind and Isaac proved their relationship was strong in February 2022 when they attended the Screen Actors Guild Awards in coordinated pink outfits.
Isaac put on a dark pink shirt and matching bowtie that perfectly contrasted with his burnt orange jacket and black pants. Lind opted for a dress in a lighter shade of pink. She posted a photo from the event a day later with the caption:
"Thank you to the magicians that fixed us up so beautifully and made us red carpet ready for the [SAG Awards]. You guys rock! We appreciate you."
MARCH 2022: "MOON KNIGHT" PREMIERE
Isaac and Lind's 2022 has been quite busy. One month after attending the SAG Awards, they posed together at the "Moon Knight" premiere in Los Angeles.
The Guatemalan star portrays a man with a dissociative identity disorder that goes by Marc Spector and Steven Grant. Thanks to the Egyptian moon god Khonshu, he acquires supernatural abilities.
Isaac revealed that his brother, Michael Benjamin Hernandez, played his body double in the Disney+ series. He pointed out that Hernandez was the "closest thing" to him on Earth. He was also proud that his brother even did Steven's English accent.
MAY 2022: GRACING THE MET GALA
Lind and Isaac proved that they love fashion with the striking outfits they wore for the 2022 Met Gala. The filmmaker wore black pants, a white shirt and bowtie, and a black suit jacket.
On the other hand, Isaac opted for a calf-length black skirt, a white shirt, and a black suit jacket. They coordinated their outfits just like they did for the 2022 SAG Awards. What a beautiful couple!
