If you’re a fan of the Netflix original series You, then it’s no secret that Penn Badgley is pretty freakin’ dreamy. Sure, his character, Joe Goldberg, is a deranged stalker and serial killer, but that doesn’t make Penn any less attractive IRL. That said, you’re going to have to put your celebrity crush aside, because the former Gossip Girl actor, 33, is very much taken by his stunning wife, Domino Kirke.
Unsurprisingly, Domino, 36, is a seriously remarkable woman. So much so, that we think it’s important for you to get to know her a bit more! If you’re interested, which you should be, check out the five fast facts below.
What does Domino do for a living?
Unlike Penn, Domino’s career doesn’t involve any Hollywood glitz and glamour. In fact, her job is about as raw as it gets. According to her Instagram page, Domino works as a doula, birth educator and doula mentor. For those of you who don’t know, a doula is a professional trained in childbirth. Domino is also a musician and the cofounder/director of Carriage House Birth.
Does Domino come from a famous family?
As a matter of fact, she does! For starters, Domino’s father, Simon Kirke, has been a professional drummer since the ‘60s. Her sisters, Jemima and Lola Kirke, are both actresses. Jemima, 34, appeared in the hit HBO series Girls for five years. Lola has landed a few small roles since the mid-2000s, including parts in Gone Girl, The Leftovers and Law & Order: Special Victims Unit.
Does Domino have any kids?
Domino has a son named Cassius Riley from a previous relationship. “I was sort of getting used to being a single mom, maybe a little too used to it,” she told Hey Mama. “I had a really good thing with my kid and we were like this little team. Penn and I were dating, but it wasn’t nearly as serious as it is now, of course. I didn’t think marriage was in the cards for us,” Domino continued. “So I was sort of just chugging along, surviving and getting through the days, and I think the difference now is that I’m really living.”
When did Domino and Penn get married?
Domino and Penn tied the knot in February 2017. The pair said “I do” during a very low-key courthouse ceremony in Brooklyn. (If you’re a Gossip Girl fan, we don’t need to spell out the irony.) Ahead of marrying Domino, Penn seriously dated his former costar Blake Lively, as well as Zoë Kravitz.
Is Domino a fan of ‘You’?
Just because Domino and Penn have exchanged sacred vows, doesn’t mean she has to watch every show he appears in. After all, You is pretty disturbing. That said, the U.K. native took to Instagram on November 11 to hype up the second season of the series. “Oh no,” she captioned a promotional poster.
We’re just as excited as you are, Domino! You will be returning to Netflix on Thursday, December 26.
