Everyone knows Chris Elliott to be a household as far as the American entertainment scene is concerned. But on the other hand, one cannot say the same about his wife Paula Niedert Elliott.
Better known as Paula Niedert, she has been married to the actor for more than three decades now and they have kids together. More than just as the wife of the famous American actor, she is also in the entertainment business as an actress.
Who is Paula Niedert Elliott?
Paula Niedert Elliott came to be known widely after she got married to a popular American comedian and actor, Christopher Nash Elliott whose fame thrust her into the limelight.
The actress was born Paula Ann Niebert on June 16, 1955, in the United States of America. She is a rather secretive individual so much that only a little about her is known. There is no information about her educational background or that of her parents and siblings.
While growing up, Paula has always had a passion for acting. This was what led her to act in school plays but it did not translate to anything serious in her later life.
As regards her career in the entertainment business, Paula is not the biggest name and does not have an elaborate career. She began her career as a production staff on Late Night with David Letterman from 1982 to 1984. In 1987, she was a casting assistant for FDR: A One Man Show. That same year, she was a Casting assistant for Action Family.
She did not get to make any on-screen appearance until 2018 when she appeared on Clara’s Ghost together with her husband and children. The production was written and directed by her daughter.
She Married Chris Elliott In 1986
The career of Paula in the entertainment industry is what got her to meet the man she later got married to, Christopher Nash Elliot. Better known as “Chris Elliot,” he is an American actor and comedian, born on May 31st, 1960 in New York, though he was raised by Bob Elliot, his father, a local comedian, and model turned television director. Chris was the man who brought about his father’s career to be noted in public. He is the fourth child in the family.
While she was working with David Letterman, Chris also happened to be a creative coordinator for the late-night show and that was how they met and started dating. They had a strong relationship that ended in marriage in 1986.
It was a marriage that was performed in a low-key that just involved close family members, relatives, and friends. Ever since their marriage, they have lived as strong as they have been without any attempt at divorce, unlike other celebrities do.
Paula Niebert Elliott Is A Mother of Two
The union between Paula Niebert Elliott and Chris has been blessed with two children; Bridey Elliott and Abby Elliot. Abby was born on June 16, 1987, while her sister Bridey, was born on July 27, 1990.
The two daughters have since decided to follow in their parents’ footsteps as comedians and actresses.
Abbey is an American actress and comedian cast on Saturday Night Live. She started demonstrating her talent during her school days at Immaculate High School, where she participated in music and plays before her graduation in 2005. From there, she was sent to Marymount Manhattan College but didn’t complete her studies there. Instead, she landed herself in the comedy class, where upon graduation she began to perform on numerous stages. Her impressive performances on TV shows were amazing, which included: No Strings Attached in 2021, and many others that are yet to be mentioned.
Meanwhile, she is married to a TV writer, Bill Kennedy, since September 3rd, 2016.
Bridey, on the other hand, is also known for being an actress, comedian, writer, and film director. Despite the fact that she, like her mother, keeps private life, she has appeared on a TV show called “Thanksgiving and Absolutely Comedy.” However, it is the reality that they are full-figured as well as public figures.
