Broad City’s Ilana Glazer had some unexpected new updates this week about her marriage to scientist David Rooklin, following their City Hall ceremony in February 2017.

“He’s good, he’s still a hot scientist,” the actress noted to Kelly Ripa and Ryan Seacrest as a photo from their wedding was shared by producers. “That is our wedding picture where he still had long hair.”

The following image showed Rooklin with a shaved head, which prompted Glazer to launch into a tale about his hairstyle change. “We went to Australia and we were staying up to rest our sleep schedule and we were like, ‘Let’s shave your head,’” she recalled. “That’s me with his hair. It was five in the morning. It was crazy.”

Rooklin’s hair continues to serve its purpose. “I braided the hair and no joke, I’m bringing it to a wig fitting on Friday to sew into a wig for a movie I’m doing,” she continued. “It seriously adds to the creepiness of the role… I used it put it over my head anyway. Like, what do I look like as a blonde?”

Glazer and Rooklin married after a five-year relationship. “I met him after FX passed [on Broad City] and before Comedy Central picked up the show. I was very humbled,” said Glazer, who co-stars and writes the series with Abbi Jacobson, previously said on Live in 2017. “He’s in science so he doesn’t know comedy. We met in Washington Square Park and we just made eyes and it was like, ‘Damn.’”

After the wedding, the couple enjoyed a honeymoon in Iceland.
