Last December, Aziz Ansari announced during one of his stand-up shows that he was engaged to his girlfriend, Swedish forensic data scientist, Serena Skov Campbell. Does a “forensic data scientist” ever get tired of being introduced as a “forensic data scientist?” She better get used to it; it’s probably going to keep happening since the number of people in the celeb stratosphere with bona fide brains seems to dwindle lower and lower. But now, we can pop some of Aziz’s Parks & Recreation character Tom Haverford’s SnakeJuice, because Aziz and Serena were recently married in Italy.
Page Six reports that the 39-year-old comedian/Master of None creator, Aziz, and annoyingly gorgeous and apparently smart Price Waterhouse Cooper scientist, Serena, tied the knot in Tuscany, Italy in front of a relatively small crowd.
Sources say the comic wed Campbell in front of around 120 people in a beautiful setting in the northern Italian region.
We’re told it wasn’t a starry crowd, but “The Sound of Metal” actor Riz Ahmed was among the guests.
Here’s a pic of them near the time of their engagement:
A few years back when he was with an ex-girlfriend, Aziz talked about being unsure if marriage was something he was interested in, but Serena must have given him the right tingles downstairs to change his mind:
Ansari was previously in a long-term relationship with pastry chef Courtney McBroom, but they split in 2016 after dating for two years.
That year, while he was still dating McBroom, Elle asked him if they planned to get married. He said, “I don’t know,” adding, “There are more and more people who don’t really feel so enraptured by the institution of marriage these days… There are so many more people who are like, ‘Oh yeah, we just went to the courthouse and got this thing done so we get a tax refund.’”
The wedding news comes on the heels of Aziz keeping it lo-pro for a few years after he moved to London in 2018 (where he met Serena) in the wake of an uncomfortable encounter with a date that was revealed in the midst of the #metoo movement. Genius move, Aziz. If it’s been documented that you’re an awkward dweeb who can’t catch a fucking clue, get yourself an in-house data scientist.
