Who is Justin Hakuta?
The sensational comedian Ali Wong‘s husband, Justin Hakuta, is a 40-year-old businessman who current serves as the Vice President of Product at GoodRx.
With a bachelor’s degree in Decision Science from Carnegie Mellon University, the tycoon graduated from Harvard Business School with his MBA.
Aside from his current position at GoodRx, Hakuta previously worked as a Senior Product Manager at Cargomatic and as Product Strategist/UX Lead at DIRECTV.
Despite Hakuta’s strong business mind and enterprise, Hakuta is actually the son of the Dr. Fad Show’s Ken Hakuta, a Japanese-American inventor and TV personality.
How did the couple meet?
Hakuta and Wong met in 2010 at a public park wedding.
Wong cordially asked Hakuta to attend one of her stand-up shows, and Hakuta was mesmerized by her humor.
“The first thing I learned about him was that, at the time, he was attending Harvard Business School. And I was like, ‘Oh, my God, I’m gonna trap his a**. Going to trap his a**!’ And I trapped his a** initially by not kissing him until the fifth date, which is a very unusual move on my part. But I did it on purpose because I knew that he was a catch,” shared Wong in her first stand-up series, Baby Cobra.
The couple now has two daughters, Mari and Nikki, born in 2015 and 2017, respectively.
After eight years of marriage, the couple announced they would be divorcing, People exclusively revealed on April 12, 2022.
“It’s amicable and they will continue to co-parent lovingly,” a source told People about Ali and Justin.
