Ali Wong Loves Her Daughters So Much, She Wrote a Book For Them! Meet Mari and Nikki
If you've ever read Ali Wong's book Dear Girls or watched one of her Netflix comedy specials, then you're probably familiar with her two daughters: 5-year-old Mari and 3-year-old Nikki. The 38-year-old comedian shares both kiddos with her husband of six years, businessman Justin Hakuta. For Wong, there's no such thing as oversharing, especially as a comedian, but when it comes to her children, that's where she draws the line. Like a lot of other celebrity parents, she and her husband refrain from sharing personal details about their kids, including their faces, on social media. Thanks to filters, though, she's still able to post cute family photos and dance parties in their living room.
While juggling mom life and work life can present a bit of a challenge, Wong has found a way to bridge the two together. And she even wrote a book — inspired by a letter her dad wrote her before he passed — in dedication to them! "With my girls, they only know me after I filmed those specials with them in utero," she said on The Ellen DeGeneres Show, adding, "They don't know everything I went through to get to where I am and I think that's really important." Get to know Mari and Nikki ahead!
