Who Is Quinta Brunson’s Husband, Kevin Jay Anik? We Investigate

You may have heard of a little show called Abbott Elementary—the mockumentary-style sitcom that’s already been dubbed the Black version of The Office. But allow us to introduce you to the mastermind behind the show: Quinta Brunson.

The actress and meme connoisseur will make history at this year’s Emmy Awards by becoming the first Black woman to be nominated three times in the comedy categories, including Outstanding Writing for a Comedy Series, Outstanding Comedy Series (as executive producer) and Outstanding Lead Actress in a Comedy Series. So, it looks like Brunson is well on her way to superstardom. But what about her romantic life? Is she currently married? Here’s what we know about her relationship status.

1. Who is Quinta Brunson’s husband?

Quinta is married to a sales manager named Kevin Jay Anik. And it appears that Anik prefers to stay under the radar, because we’ve done quite a bit of sleuthing, and there isn’t much information about him online.

2. How did they meet?

If you’re super curious to know how this love story came about, then you’re out of luck, because the couple has kept their relationship out of the spotlight. Details of when and how they first met haven’t been shared publicly.

3. When did Brunson and Anik get married?

On July 30, 2020, Brunson announced her engagement with a fresh-faced selfie, complete with a close-up of her sparkly ring. In the caption, she simply wrote, “More good news,” referring to her previous announcement of A Black Lady Sketch Show scoring an Emmy nomination.

Since then, the actress hasn’t shared any details about her wedding or posted any photos. But according to ShowBiz Corner, Brunson and Anik tied the knot in an intimate ceremony with close friends and family in September 2021.

4. Is Kevin Jay Anik active on social media?

It doesn’t seem so. As of August 2022, Anik didn’t have any public social media accounts. He has also never appeared on Brunson’s Instagram feed. But it’s worth noting that he made a rare red-carpet appearance with Brunson at this year’s TIME100 Gala.

5. Do they have children?

As far as we know, the couple don’t have any kids, and it’s uncertain whether they’re planning to start a family.

Regardless, it appears that Brunson is living her best life both on and off the screen—and we couldn’t be happier for her.
