She is a radiant, beautiful, strange Danish flower and I am beyond grateful to be with her on our weird, poetic journey.”

How Rainn Wilson Met His Wife Holiday Reinhorn: "Love at first sight"

Wilson and Reinhorn met when they attended the same acting class at University of Washington in the mid-'80s. They were classmates, but eventually lost touch, leading Wilson to look Reinhorn up in the Whitepages years later. The two reconnected, started dating, and eventually got married on June 30, 1995.

“I don’t believe in love at first sight — it simply doesn’t make sense — but that’s what happened to me,” Wilson wrote in his 2016 memoir, The Bassoon King. “I’ve been deeply in love with her ever since. For the record: Holiday is just awesome. Dark sense of humor and dangerously smart.”

According to HuffPost, Reinhorn arrived at the wedding ceremony along the Kalama River in Washington "on a raft filled with flowers, the couple built a fire so guests could throw in pieces of paper containing well wishes and they ended the evening by jumping into the river."

Holiday Reinhorn is an author

Wilson has released books like Soul Boom and The Bassoon King, and Reinhorn is a writer as well.

Big Cats, her short story collection, was published in 2005. Reinhorn has been featured in multiple literary magazines, and she teaches creative writing classes. In 2014, Wilson and Reinhorn co-founded The LIDÈ Haiti Foundation, "an educational organization that uses literacy and the arts to empower at-risk adolescent girls in Haiti."

How many kids does Rainn Wilson have?

Wilson and two have one child together. Their son, Walter McKenzie Wilson, was born in October 2004. 

The couple lives near L.A., in a Spanish-style hacienda on "five-and-a-half acres of gardens, macadamia trees, and citrus groves, with distant views of the Pacific Ocean," as described by Architectural Digest in 2020. As Wilson revealed in a 2007 Associated Press interview, they also spend time at their cabin in Oregon when they have some time off.

Wilson and Reinhorn have been married for almost 30 years. In June 2020, Reinhorn posted a picture on Instagram celebrating the 25th anniversary of her and Wilson's wedding, captioning the photo: "It’s been a ride of many wonders and twists and turns...but as the poets like to say—-if we weren’t supposed to dance...why all this music?"
