Anne Hathaway and her husband have enjoyed marital bliss since their 2012 nuptials. While the actress has continued being in the spotlight amid attempts to keep her private life off the grid, little is known about her husband.
Separating her personal life from her career is one feat Anne Hathaway has managed to pull off seamlessly in the last ten years. Aside from occasional appearances with her kids in public and shared photos with her husband Adam Shulman, little about the actress’s personal life has made its way to the public.
That has helped the family grow stronger despite their enduring struggles through the years. Luckily, she’s had support from her husband, who also shares her values and remains committed to upholding their privacy.
Who Is Adam Shulman?
Adam Shulman is Anne Hathaway’s less-famous husband whom she fell in love with at first sight. The icon has carved a multifaceted career for himself over the years as a jewelry designer, producer, and actor.
He has minor credits in movies like “Ricki and The Flash,” “The West Wing,” and “The Duke Of Hazzard: The Beginning,” among others. The actor has also starred in the television show, “American Dreams.”
In 2014, Adam Shulman collaborated with his wife to produce the movie, “Song One,” which marked Hathaway’s production debut.
As a jeweler, the father-of-two runs the jewelry brand James Banks Design, which he co-owns with Heidi Nahser Fink. The brand designs a collection of hand-made jewelry ranging from butterfly and light bulb pendants to constellation-inspired baubles and feather details.
Shulman’s numerous ventures have earned him an impressive net worth of over $1 million according to Celebrity Net Worth.
How Did Anne Hathaway And Adam Shulman Meet?
“The Witches” star has been open about her and Shulman’s first meeting at the Palm Springs Film Festival. The actress, who admittedly wasn’t looking for love at the time, found herself swept off her feet by the stranger.
Upon sighting him, Hathaway told her friend who accompanied her to the festival, that she was going to marry him. The actress reflected on that moment in a 2014 interview, saying she knew he was the love of her life from the moment she met him.
Shulman Put His Skills To Good Use For Their Engagement
After dating for about three years, Shulman finally decided to take their relationship to new heights. He proposed to the actress in November 2011, using a specially designed ring.
According to reports, the Jewelry designer utilized his skills, in collaboration with experts at Kwiat to create the perfect engagement ring. The result was a 6-carat emerald-cut diamond set in a simple pave band and reportedly cost about $150,000.
The Couple Sealed The Deal With A Private Wedding
Barely a year after Shulman got down on one knee, the couple made their union official in a very private wedding graced by family and friends. They tied the knot in September 2012, in Big Sur, California.
For the private affair, the star donned a custom wedding gown designed by Valentino Garavani, a close friend of Hathaway’s. The dress came equipped with a long train with pink accents and satin flowers, while Shulman kept it simple in a black tux.
While the wedding played out under the radar, the couple managed to make the most of their private affair. Reports show Hathaway and Shulman sold their wedding photos to various media outlets and used the proceeds for charity.
The Journey To Parenthood
Anne Hathaway and her husband spent four years struggling to conceive, before eventually becoming parents. The star shared her conception and infertility story in 2019.
The usually private icon admitted she only let the world in on that aspect of her life to let other women living through a similar situation know they were not alone. Thankfully, the couple’s grueling journey had a happy ending.
They welcomed their first child, Jonathan Roseband Shulman, in March 2016. Three years later, their second son, Jack Shulman, joined the family. The duo announced his birth in November 2019, months after opening up about their infertility struggle.
Adam Shulman has Impacted His wife Positively
Years of walking the marital sojourn together, enduring fertility struggles, working together, and braving parental challenges have only helped the couple grow stronger in love and commitment. Admittedly, their journey showed the actress just how valuable her husband was in her life.
In a 2017 interview, the “Ella Enchanted” star went candid about her relationship with her husband, admitting he changed her. Explaining further, she revealed the entrepreneur changed her ability to be in the world comfortably. She also admitted to needing her husband despite the widely-held narrative that women do not need anybody.
Finding such a unique love has admittedly impacted Hathaway, placing her in a better place after a life of hardship, depression, relationship drama, and legal feud.
Given how much impact Shulman has had on Hathaway since their marriage, one can safely describe him as her rock and pillar of support.
