The Gad household is filled with creative talent. Josh Gad is best known for his roles in Beauty and The Beast, Frozen, Artemis Fowl, and A Dog’s Purpose. On the other hand, his wife Ida Darvish works on both ends of the camera, sometimes as an actor and sometimes as a producer.

Meeting Josh Gad and Personal Life:
Even though Ida is best known for her work in the movies, she loves working in theatre. She met Josh at a David Ives’ play, and the pair played the parts of a husband and wife. Talking about the first time they met, Josh revealed,
“We were playing a married couple, and I fell head-over-heels for her. At the time she was 29 and I was 23, and we were both shocked when we learned the other person’s age. It was one of those things where it was just kismet, and we’ve been together ever since.”
The pair dated for a few years before tying the knot on the 10th of May, 2008. The pair had their first daughter Ava, who was born on December 1, 2010, and was followed by Isabella, who was born on February 17, 2014.
