Melissa McCarthy and Ben Falcone's relationship is a reminder that if you laugh together you'll love together. The two have been together for over 20 years, first starting off as friends.  Did you know the actors first crossed paths in the '90s when they were in school? According to PEOPLE, they were properly reintroduced in 1998 when they joined the same comedy class in Los Angeles and the rest as they say is history. Over the years, they've shared screens in hilarious films like Bridesmaids, Spy, as well as Netflix's latest unique rom-com, God's Favorite Idiot. Fans will know there usually is a Falcone cameo in most of McCarthy's work. "He's nothing but supportive, and he's super smart," McCarthy told PEOPLE of her comedy producer husband. "He makes me gut-laugh, like crazy gut-laugh, four or five times a day. I hit the jackpot!"



 

 

The couple even write and produce their own projects. The Academy Award-nominated actress also told E! News she loves working with Falcone. "It's ridiculous. It's like you get to go to work with your best friend. It's exactly how we met, and we became such good friends because we loved doing this together. To get to do it on this kind of scale and still keep telling stories . . . it's a dream." POPSugar reports that the couple tied the knot after a seven-year courtship in an intimate ceremony in 2005. The two comedians began expanding their family two years later. In 2007, they welcomed their first child, a daughter named Vivian and in 2010, they welcomed their second daughter, Georgette.

 



 

 

 

What does the future hold for their kids? Speaking with E! News in 2022, McCarthy revealed spoke about her daughters' future careers . "I think we both just want them to do something they really love and to feel good about themselves doing it," she said. "It could be a gecko catcher in the Galapagos Islands or could be acting or — they're both very artistic. So, I just want them to be happy and to kind of lead with kindness." The comedy duo celebrated their 16th wedding anniversary on October 8th of last year. Falcone shared a photo of the couple dancing at their wedding on the special day, writing: Sixteen years ago today, I was lucky enough to marry to the most wonderful person in the world. Happy Anniversary Mooch! Love you, here's to 400 more (for a few of those I am assuming we shall need to be be at least partially robotic beeeeeep!)" How adorable are they!?
