All about the trophy wife: Celeste Ackelson. Her wiki/bio, age, net worth.

Most of us have probably heard of the term ‘Trophy wife.’ We all know where we can see a lovely couple consisting of a rich, successful man and a relatively young, pretty woman. You guessed it right; there’s no other place like Hollywood.

Melanie Trump (52-year-old, married to a 76-year-old), Aleksandra Nikolić (32-year-old, married to a 50-year-old), Georgina Chapman (46-year-old, was married to a 70-year-old), and Celeste Ackelson (40-year-old, married to a 50-year-old). In this article, we’ll be talking about Celeste Ackelson, the wife of American actor Brian Baumgartner.

Celeste Ackelson and her husband Brian Baumgartner

Early Life and Childhood

Celeste Ackelson was born on July 10, 1982, in Los Angeles, CA, United States. Her childhood was relatively normal and sweet. Not much more is known about her family other than this. She was reported to have a great artistic mind that was praised for her effects on different school projects. After she graduated from high school, she enrolled at Florida International University. There she got a degree in Communications. Celeste is a well-educated and creative woman. However, she knew that Communication wasn’t the path she wanted to walk on. 


Her passion for fashion (It does rhyme) helped her a lot in the industry. We all know she has a great sense of style. She started doing artistic things as a habit at a very young age, with the support of her parents. She did various projects for her friends in her free time. This was a big help in broadening her creative side. However, Celeste does not like discussing her current professional life or work. This is the reason why we have yet to learn about her professional life at the moment.

Net Worth:

It has been reported that her estimated net worth is about $5 million. This doesn’t come as a surprise since she is married to a very successful comic actor with a net worth of $10 million. His character is a fan favorite in the sitcom ‘The office.’ She has a lavishing home bought for her by her husband, Brian. The house costs over $2.8 million and is located in Los Angeles. Los Angeles is a very expensive place where even One bedroom apartment costs over $2,823 per week. 

Love story of the Hollywood couple Brian Baumgartner and Celeste Ackelson 

The marriage between Brian and Celeste was a surprise. The couple first met in the 2000s. Brian’s character Kevin Malone was successful at winning the heart of the audience with his awkward charm, and the real-life Brian was successful at winning the heart of the woman of his dreams. Nonetheless, the love story didn’t start smoothly. Brian, at the time, was married to his first wife, Julia Fisher. However, his marriage with Julia Fisher was going through a rough patch. Maybe, Brian needed a shoulder to lean on, and he found that with Celeste. Brian managed to pull the appealing Celeste with his humor. 

Celeste & Brian Baumgartner on their wedding day

On April 28th, 2014, they decided to tie the knot in the backyard of their Californian residence. The list of guests felt like it was a ‘The office’ themed wedding. The list included. John Krasinski, Emily Blunt, Jenna Fischer, Angela Kinsey, and Oscar Nunez. We got to see actors all glammed up and ready to attend the wedding. John wore a light grey suit looking handsome as ever. Emily Blunt complimented her husband, looking absolutely stunning in a sleek red dress. Jenna wore a blue-and-white maxi dress with a navy blazer, showing off her baby bump. Similarly, Oscar was matching Jhon in his grey suit. Now, this is what we can say is an adorable act of bromance.

Coming back to the bride and the groom, both looked ecstatic walking down the aisle and renouncing their vows to one another and the attendees. The bride showed off her fashion style while wearing a stunning white dress with no strap. She looked happy and excited to be wedded. 

They welcomed their baby girl, Brylee Bea Baumgartner on February 19, 2015. The little girl is now 7 years old. 

Celeste Labelled ‘Gold Digger’

The fans of Brian Baumgartner were furious over a small detail they caught in a photograph. The photograph showed the couple sitting together and smiling, looking happy with one another. Celeste was holding onto Brian’s forearms, well actually the Rolex on his arms. Yikes! 

The fans were not happy about that. They threw a fit about the details, saying that she should’ve held on to his arms instead of the watch if she really loved him. 

In spite of that, there have been no comments about this from either of them. We can say that it was a small detail that was overlooked by the viewers.
