Nev Schulman and Wife Laura Perlongo Didn’t Know What to Do With Themselves After Their Wedding: ‘What Now?’


For years, Catfish cohost Nev Schulman and Laura Perlongo were running on adrenaline. After seven months of dating, the couple — who admittedly “went into it fast” — announced in 2016 they were expecting their first child together. Then, after welcoming daughter Cleo in October 2016, the parents threw themselves into wedding planning. When that was over, Schulman, 33, and Perlongo, 32, didn’t quite know what to do with themselves.

“There was a month where we were just looking at each other like, ‘OK. What are we planning next?” Perlongo told Us Weekly at the 2018 MTV Video Music Awards in New York City on Monday, August 20. “Like, we had the kid and now we’re married. Oh God.”

The creative director noted that the month after they tied the knot was the hardest. “There’s all this build-up and everyone’s so excited and you have got this great wedding, and all your friends and family are there,” she explained. “And then the day after, you’re like, ‘Cool what now?’”

Now, the pair, who cohost the Facebook relationship show We Need to Talk, are back in planning mode. Perlongo is pregnant with baby No. 2 — a boy! “We’ve got the girl thing down, we got it, and now we’re like, ‘Oh, we’re gonna have to learn everything again, too,’” she told Us. Added Schulman: “It’s a whole new set of weird concerns and worries.”

Schulman and Perlongo took to Instagram to share their pregnancy news on August 15. They celebrated their two-year wedding anniversary one month earlier. When it comes to marriage advice, Schulman told Us: If the [heat] cools off a little bit, that’s actually probably healthy and good. You can’t expect that insane love and passion all the time.”
