Husband – Brian Baumgartner

Brian enrolled at the private Southern Methodist University which is located in University Park, Texas. It was established in 1911 by what is now known as the United Methodist Church. It has an enrollment of over 11,000 students in a semester from all 50 states and around 83 countries. Most of the students are from nearby areas, while top foreign students include those from China and India. The university grants degrees from eight schools including the Perkins School of Theology, the Dedman School of Law, Dedman College of Humanities and Sciences, and the Meadows School of the Arts.

After completing his degree, he moved to Minneapolis, Minnesota where he served as the Artistic Director of Hidden Theatre. During his time there, he received multiple awards for his acting and artistic excellence. He then continued his career in the theatre, performing at the Guthrie Theatre and Berkeley Repertory Theatre. He later got his breakthrough in film and television, first appearing in “Herman U.S.A” as the character Roger, a romantic comedy film directed by Bill Semans. He then gained continued roles on television mainly as a guest, working in “CSI: Crime Scene Investigation”, “Arrested Development” and “Everwood”.

Brian’s Rise to Fame

Ackelson’s husband really gained international attention when he became a part of the NBC television sitcom entitled “The Office”, which ran from 2005 to 2013, a total of nine seasons. It is an American adaptation of the BBC series of the same name, and focuses on office employees working in a branch of the fictional Dunder Mifflin Paper Company. It simulates the look of an actual documentary with a single camera setup and no studio audience. It has helped elevate the career of many of its cast members, including Steve Carell and John Krasinski.

The show started out with mixed reviews, but eventually attracted widespread acclaim as more seasons aired. The show has won several awards, including four Primetime Emmys, two Screen Actors Guild, and a Peabody Award. He also worked on “The Office: The Accountants” web episodes, which led him to a Daytime Emmy Award for Outstanding Broadband Program, an award he shared with co-stars Angela Kinsey and Oscar Nunez. Since the end of “The Office”, he’s returned to doing guest or recurring work; some of his recent projects include “The Goldbergs”, “Melissa & Joey”, and “Law & Order: Special Victims Unit”.

Personal Life and Social Media

For her personal life, it is known that Celeste married Brian in 2014, in the backyard of their Los Angeles, California home. She was not his first wife, as he was previously married to pianist Julia Fisher, a marriage that eventually ended in divorce. When Celeste and Brian met, the two instantly clicked. She liked him for his sense of humor, although the couple are nine years apart in age. Their wedding gained a bit of attention due to her wedding dress as well as the fact that many of the cast members of “The Office” appeared for the wedding.

Brian Baumgartner, The Office, and Celeste Ackelson married in L.A. on 26 April. Brian has a daughter with his previous wife Julia Fisher.

One of the reasons why there is very limited information about her past and current endeavors is due to the lack of any strong online presence on social media. She does not have accounts on websites such as Facebook, Instagram and Twitter. The same cannot be said for her husband, who is very active online due to the nature of his work as an actor. She does not appear a lot on her husband’s accounts, indicating that for most of the time, she prefers to keep out of the spotlight, and support her husband from behind the scenes.
