A year ago she stated that she likes to keep her personal life private and also talked about how her husband said that she has become funnier after having their babies. 

In her words,

If I don’t talk about my personal life, it means I don’t talk about my personal life. That means not only did I not tell you when I was getting married, it also means if somebody has rumors about what’s going on in my marriage, I don’t refute them, because I don’t talk about my personal life.

Talking about the compliment her husband gave her, she said, 

My husband says that I’m funnier since I became a mom, and that luckily I was pregnant when I did SNL because I was really funny. I think something about being a mom has made me let go even more of ideas of perfectionism, like when you’re pregnant you’re just not in control of anything. Like every day you’re like, What am I today?

Well, they are together, and everything is going fine at present. But before starting up a family she had been in a few failed relationships.
