Let’s get right in to know more!
Successful Married Life of Her Parents
Darby Rudd’s parents, Paul Rudd and Julie Yaeger are living happily together for more than 25 years. They first met in 1995 in New York after Julie was hired as Rudd’s publicist. While recalling their first meeting, Paul told Marie Claire,
She was the first person I met in New York. We started talking and there was a maturity with her – she had experienced some tragedy in her life, I had too, and the impression I got was, wow, this is a woman. This isn’t a girl. I was really taken with who she was and how she had overcome and was in the process of overcoming adversities in her life. There was a perspective that she had and still has on the world that you don’t come too easily – it’s earned and most people don’t have it at such a young age.Paul on getting to know his wife, Julie.
A few days after their first encounter, Rudd asked Yaeger out on a lunch date and the rest is history.
After dating for around eight years, they got married on February 23, 2003. As of now, the pair have been together for more than two decades and still have a strong bond.
Paul and Darby’s Relationship
Darby Rudd is just 11, but she means the world to her parents, especially her father. She tags along with her dad on most of his biggest events; she was with him even when he received a star on the Hollywood Walk of Fame.
Paul Rudd had never thought how his life would change becoming a girl dad and impact his work. In 2018, her father appeared as not only the superhero, Ant-Man but also as a father to Cassie. Since Paul already had a daughter, he could easily blend into the role of a father.
Paul was afraid it would be weird for his daughter to see the movie since he has another daughter in the movie. But, it wasn’t weird at all. She loved the movie!
At first, when she was very young, I used to think, is it going to be weird. When my daughter is old enough, and she sees this movie, that she’s going to see me playing dad to a little girl. And instead, it’s the opposite. I think she really loves it, because I tell her, you know, you’re the real Cassie. . . I do little things in the movie that are little things for her.
Well, it seems their father-daughter relationship is as great as it can be, right?
