Meet Bill Kennedy, Abby Elliott’s Husband
Abby Elliott got married to Bill Kennedy on 3 September 2016 and have been together ever since. In fact, they have been inseparable since meeting on the set of S** Ed in 2014. Bill proposed to Abby the following year, and the year after that they exchanged their vows in eastern Connecticut, with even Martha Stewart Weddings witnessing it. Their elegant celebration started with a Catholic ceremony in front of just under 200 guests. Next happened cocktails and dinner nearby at Abby’s parents’ gothic-style house.
Four years later, in October 2020, the couple welcomed their first child, a daughter named Edith Pepper Kennedy, via IVF. This had happened just seven months after Abby opened up to Kelly Clarkson about her fertility issues. Calling IVF “hardcore” she had voiced that so many people go through this and despite that it is not talked about that much.
And just now, in 2023, Abby and her husband’s hearts have been bursting again with the arrival of William “Billy” Joseph Lunney Kennedy IV, their newborn son.
Often on IG, we have seen Abby show her little ones and talk about just how amazing her husband is to them. On Father’s Day last year, she genuinely thanked him for always taking “the morning shift”.
Abby, who had a little baby carriage and a baby doll as a child, always had plans on having kids.
Prior to meeting Bill in Tampa at a strip club that night, Abby dated fellow SNL cast member Fred Armisen.
