Canadian stand-up comedian of Indian descent, Russell Peter, has finally found someone he can call his wife. 

Russell was having a difficult time moving on from his past relationships. However, he has now settled down with a beautiful woman. 

Let’s find out about his partner. 

Russell Peters’s Wife

Russell recently tied the knot with his now-wife Ali in February 2022. The wedding ceremony took place in front of around 300 on a bluff overlooking the ocean. 

The wedding was amazing with the view and even more memorable with UFC announcer Bruce Buffer introducing Peters and his wife while entering the reception. 

Russell met his  Ali before the pandemic hit the world. He shared about having nothing when he first met and also admitting to being in a relationship with his then-girlfriend.

There was nothing between them, and they just casually talked when they met. But later, they both got back in touch when one of Ali’s clients wanted to buy a house in Russell’s neighborhood. After that, they were constantly talking and hanging out, which finally ended up dating and eventually getting married.

Before getting married to his wife, she was once featured on his podcast Culturally Cancelled, where he gave an insight into their relationship. Russell also posted a sweet Valentine’s Day post for Ali in 2021. 

Even if Ali is married to a celebrity, she still prefers to keep her personal life away from the spotlight.

However, Russell did not find the love of his life in one shot. He had been in many relationships before finding his perfect partner.

Russell has been in many relationships, but he was also married before.

Russell was married to his first wife, Monica Diaz, in 2010. They have a daughter named Crystianna Marie Peters, who was born in December 2010. However, Russell and Diaz could not find peace in their marriage and divorced in 2012, citing incompatibility.

In September 2016, the Canadian stand-up comedian got engaged to his girlfriend, Ruzanna Khetchian.

He first shared the news about his engagement to ET Canada in September 2016. He explained it while laughing:

“I was naked. Just about to go to bed and I just got on both knees because one knee hurt"

He was then asked about his marriage plans to Ruzanna. He answered the question with sarcasm. He said: 

“Oh no rush, I still got a bunch of side chicks I got to get through.”

However, Russell and his then-fiance broke their engagement within four months of getting engaged. 

Shortly after breaking his engagement with Ruzanna, he dated a model and formal Miss Universe Honduras, Jennifer Andrade. 

After being together for some time, on 5th December 2018, Russell announced the good news of the couple getting pregnant on his Instagram. His girlfriend, former Miss Honduras, was pregnant with a baby boy. They were inseparable during the pregnancy and even organized a big baby shower.

But, in 2020, Jennifer announced her separation from Russell. She did not reveal the actual reason behind their separation. But, she claimed that Peters was being selfish after their engagement which was disrespectful to her and their son. 

Moreover, back in 2014, talking to Hindustan Times, Bollywood actress Sunny Leone, a former adult artist, revealed for the first time her experience dating her long-time friend Russell Peters. She said:

“You know, we were friends for such a long time, and sometimes if you are friends for so long you think you can end up together. So we dated each other for some time, but I think that was a mistake”

A long time ago, before 2012, Russell dated Sunny Leone, who has been active in Bollywood since 2008.

Apart from his past affairs and relationships, his fans are also interested in his net worth and career.
