Celeste Barber is an Australian comedian and media personality known for her hilarious Instagram posts and viral parodies of celebrities. She started her career as a paramedic Bree Matthews on the TV show All Saints and later became famous for her roles in Office Correctness, How Not to Behave, and The Matty Johns Show. Recently, she has also landed the lead role in the 2023 Netflix comedy Wellmania. Although Barber started out as an actor, she later switched to comedy and has found success in the field.
While she has gained a massive following for her comedic talent, fans of Celeste know that her ‘hot husband’ Api Robin often steals the show. In this article, we’ll take a closer look at the man behind the comedian and how their love story has evolved over the years.
About Celeste And Api’s Meeting And Marriage
Celeste first met Api Robin over 20 years ago when they were both studying at the same acting school. She once referred to him as her “Maori Adonis” and in a 2016 piece for Australia’s Daily Life, she wrote about the moment she met her future husband. “13 years ago when he was wearing head-to-toe cheesecloth, and had dreadlocks down to his far-too-fantastic bum,” she wrote.
The couple began dating shortly after they met, and after 10 years together, they tied the knot in a beautiful ceremony in 2013. Celeste often refers to Api as her ‘hot husband’ and he has become a regular feature in her Instagram posts.
In a 2020 interview with Australian Women’s Weekly, Celeste gushed about her husband, calling him “the most fantastic human being in the whole land.” She also shared that he takes her success in stride and is supportive of her career. “He knows what I do really makes up who I am. He just gets on with it,” she said.
How Many Children Do Celeste And Api Have?
Api and Celeste share two children together, Lou and Buddy. Api also has two older daughters, Darah and Kyah, from a previous relationship. In an interview with Now To Love, Celeste shared that her sons think she’s funny and is generally supportive of her career. However, Lou has had some opinions on her more risqué Instagram posts. “My 9-year-old son’s like, ‘Isn’t that.. is that inappropriate?’ and I say ‘Probably darling, but it’s paying off this house,'” she joked.
Celeste has also talked about what it’s like being a stepmother to Api’s older daughters. She has expressed gratitude to them for making space for her in their family and has even mentioned them in her wedding vows. “I thanked them for making space for me because I really feel like they did, which I appreciate,” she said in the same interview with Australian Women’s Weekly.
Despite the demands of their busy careers, Celeste and Api have managed to maintain a strong relationship over the years. They celebrated their eighth wedding anniversary in May 2021, and Celeste marked the occasion with a sweet tribute on Instagram. “Happy eighth wedding anniversary my love. You are by far, the best there is,” she wrote.
