Aaron Moten’s Wife Is Lilja Rúriksdóttir: What Does She Do?

Moten enjoys a blissful married life with his wife of 10 Years, Lilja Rúriksdóttir. The Disjointed actor’s official Instagram doesn’t feature aspects of his personal life. On the contrary, his wife, Lilja, is not shy about sharing pictures of her beau and her professional venture on her IG posts.
