Ali Wong Made a Thirst Post About Her Husband on Instagram and People are Loving It
Leave it to comedian Ali Wong to show us what love is for Valentine’s Day.
In an Instagram post on Monday, the comedian and mother-of-two had adorable words for her husband of four years, Justin Hakuta.
“Hey is that my husband or is that a Filipino-Japanese LL Cool J?” Wong captioned a photo of Hakuta. “Who cares!”
“He’s a sexy ass man that drives a minivan and eats Durian and appreciates Killing Eve just as much as I do!”
Wong and Hakuta tied the knot in November 2014. They have since appeared in various events together.
The couple welcomed their first baby in November 2015. Wong then gave birth to their second daughter in January 2018.
Wong’s post instantly melted people’s hearts.
Beyond Instagram, Wong often speaks about Hakuta in her interviews and stand-up shows. She also revealed that she runs her jokes by him.
“I make fun of him a lot, but the truth is he’s a VP at a multimillion-dollar tech company,” she told The New York Times last year. “He’s an Asian unicorn; there’s nobody like him. I have to run jokes by him or I lose my marriage. That’s not worth a cool joke.”
In her first Netflix stand-up “Baby Cobra,” Wong recalled how she had plotted to trap her future husband, convinced that he was a catch.
“The first thing I learned about him was that, at the time, he was attending Harvard Business School. And I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I’m gonna trap his a**. Going to trap his a**!’ And I trapped his ass initially by not kissing him until the fifth date, which is a very unusual move on my part. But I did it on purpose because I knew that he was a catch.”
But as it turned out, she realized that it was actually Hakuta who had trapped her.
“I discovered that my beautiful, Harvard-educated husband was $70,000 in debt. And me, with my hard-earned TV money, paid it all off. So, as it turns out, he’s the one who trapped me. How did he do it? How did he bamboozle me? Oh! Maybe because he went to Harvard Business School, the epicenter of white-collar crime. He Enron’d my a**.”
Wong is currently preparing for her “The Milk and Money Tour,” which kicks off in Tucson, Arizona on Feb. 16.
