The actress's most recent on-screen appearance is on Marvel's "WandaVision" with Elizabeth Olsen and Paul Bettany. Teyonah is set to star in "The Marvels" with Brie Larson, Iman Vellani, and Lashana Lynch.


James Parris Prefers to Lead a Low-Key Life

Although details about their dating timeline and marriage remain scarce, Teyonah has called James her "husband." While Teyonah thrives in the limelight, James leads a more low-key life, graciously supporting his wife from the sidelines.

Teyonah and James make a great team when it comes to parenthood and building a family.

James is a frequent presence in Teyonah's numerous Instagram photos. While it remains unclear if he has his own Instagram page, his wife does not mention or tag him in any of her posts.


Adding to James' enigmatic personality is his undisclosed profession, which neither he nor the actress has revealed publicly. Despite leading a low-key life, Teyonah has graciously shown fans a glimpse into their private world together. In a recent Instagram snap, Teyonah stated:

"No one I'd rather be sleepless and covered in baby drool and spit up with than you, my love, but glad to see we can still clean up when we need to!! 😜"


Teyonah Parris and Her Husband's Most Remarkable Job: Parenthood

Teyonah and James make a great team when it comes to parenthood and building a family. The couple revealed on Instagram in September 2022 that they were expecting their first child.

The pregnancy announcement featured a picture of James looking happy while holding a pregnancy test stick. Teyonah shared that they felt shocked and excited upon receiving this fantastic news.


The couple appeared stronger than ever in the following months. During the holidays, Teyonah and James dressed elegantly for a photo. Teyonah showed off her baby bump in a sparkly dress, while James looked suave in a black-and-white suit.

In March 2023, the couple welcomed their child, but Teyonah had not revealed her kid's identity. However, she shared her emotional homebirth video and how James supported her.


Being a parent has been a life-changing experience for Teyonah, who celebrated her first Mother's Day in May 2023. In a heartfelt Instagram post, she expressed how she now understands the mothers' daily sacrifices for their families.

Reflecting on her journey through motherhood, Teyonah admitted that her breastfeeding experience posed significant challenges. During those times, she often felt alone and overwhelmed by the weight of expectations.

However, amidst the tough moments, Teyonah found immense gratitude for the unwavering support of her loving husband. She said James had been patient with her when she was impatient.


A few months after giving birth, Teyonah keeps her daughter's face and name a secret. Despite this secrecy, she did share in another post that her child is a "sweet girl."

The actress is one of those celebrity parents who prefer to keep their children's identities out of the spotlight. Notable stars who have chosen this approach include Blake Lively, Eva Mendes, and Matt Damon.
