Leslie Odom Jr. and Nicolette Robinson found love on the way to achieving their Broadway dreams.

The pair met in 2008, tying the knot four years later. Both Odom Jr. and Robinson nabbed recurring roles on a handful of popular TV shows, but their biggest breaks came from the stage. Odom Jr. originated the role of Aaron Burr in Hamilton, winning his first Tony Award in 2016 for his performance, while Robinson joined the Broadway cast of Waitress in 2018.

Along with celebrating their individual successes, the couple have collaborated throughout their careers. The twosome costarred in the miniseries Love in the Time of Corona in 2020 and shared the screen in Regina King‘s One Night in Miami that same year. In 2023, they cowrote a children’s book titled I Love You More Than You’ll Ever Know.

Their proudest collaboration, however, is in raising their family. Odom Jr. and Robinson welcomed daughter Lucille and son Able in 2017 and 2021, respectively.

“Watching Nicolette give birth to these kids …? Simply, the bravest acts I’ve ever witnessed from a foot away,” Odom Jr. gushed via Instagram in 2021 while sharing the first glimpse of their baby boy. “I love you, sweetheart and I am in awe.”
