Rob's romance with his wife was his first serious relationship as he himself explained in an interview with The Guardian in November 2015. He stated, 

"No one else before or since ever violently kidnapped my heart, put it in a dirty bag and brought it to their lair to own for ever."

Also, the pair shared a good sense of humor and Rob, despite being a marvelous comedian, thinks his wife more hilarious than him. In an interview with The Guardian in May 2016, he was asked things that were the funniest for him. When enquired about the funniest person he knows, he said,

"My wife has made me lose my mind screaming laughing the most. The hardest I’ve ever laughed was one time when we were crossing a street and she decided to pretend she was, like, four inches tall and had difficulty climbing the kerb and I am laughing now thinking about it. Buster Keaton or Harold Lloyd would’ve tried to license the move from her."

The couple is blessed with three children with all boys which make them a family of five people.

In an interview with the Huffington Post in 2013, he talked about parenting and how he thought to be a father would make him a terrible comedian. He said,

“It’s made me angrier, it’s made me happier, it’s increased my capacity for sadness and just every emotion.”

His wife must be his un-noticed mentor and an inspiration too. The couples share a strong bond and are still going strong till this date. Luckily, we did find a picture of Rob’s son Shaley(one of three) and wife on his Twitter post.

The comedian is living in the Central London with his wife and three children. 

Lost Son To Cancer; Parents Again After Child Loss

The Boston, Massachusetts native lost one of his children, a son named Henry to a brain tumor in January of 2018. His son's tumor was found only after his son’s first birthday in 2016 and was treated and removed in early 2017. However, the deadly tumor returned and took Henry's life. Taking to Facebook, the comedian expressed his tragedy to all. 

However, only after five months of his son's death, Rob found a ray of hope in his life. He and his wife Leah are going to be parents again as the pair announced Leah's pregnancy. 

Sharing a long Twitter video message, Rob took the happy news to his social media on 30 June 2018. 

Drinker From Past:

Rob Delaney almost died from drinking alcohol too much about 12 years ago. He said,

“I deal with suicidal, unipolar depression and I take medication daily to treat it. Over the past seven years, I’ve had two episodes that were severe and during which I thought almost exclusively of suicide. I did not eat much and lost weight during these episodes. I couldn’t sleep at all, didn’t even think about sex, and had constant diarrhea. The first thing I did each morning was vomit. My mind played one thought over and over, which was ‘Kill yourself’.”
