Does Aisling Bea Have A Husband? Is She Married?

According to reports, the Trollied actress does not have a husband. There are no official records of her marriage, and she has never talked about settling down. In her early 40s, Aisling has no reports of any current dating story or boyfriend in the scene.

It seems Bea is not hasty about weddings or finding love after alleged heartbreaks with fellow high-profile actors in the past. Or it could be the other way around- that secret relationship stuff. Either way, those claims about her relationship remain 50-50.

In the miniseries Alice & Jack, she portrayed Lynn, the wife of Jack and the mother of his daughter, where their relationship wrecks into divorce after Lynn finds out that her husband, Jack, had emotions for his former flame, Alice, over her.

Dating History Of Aisling Bea: Romance With Michael Sheen

In 2018, rumors of Bea’s relationship with the Prodigal Son actor Michael Sheen spread. An insider told The Sun that the two met through mutual friends, and ‘Michael is pretty smitten, telling people he is off the market.’

On April 8, 2018, the duo attended the Olivier Awards in London but didn’t arrive together or pose together on the red carpet.

A month later, in mid-May 2018, Aisling and Michael were pictured together in the same car as they left the NHS Heroes Awards in London. However, neither saw them arrive together nor did the alleged couple take a picture together.

However, in September 2018, there were reports that Bea and Sheen broke up, ending a five-month-long dating story.

As for a fact, neither of them was the one to break the news of their split, but Michael’s ex-girlfriend of four years, Sarah Silverman, broke the news. During her interview on Jimmy Kimmel Live, Silverman talked about her on-off relationship with Sheen and stated that her ex ‘dated someone for a beat,’ implying that ‘someone’ to be Aisling.

Sheen Addressed His Break Up With Aisling In The 2018 Summer

In August of 2019, the Frost/Nixon actor took to Twitter to dispel rumors and speculations that he was still dating when he met Anna Lundberg, his wife (then-girlfriend) and mother of his two daughters.

It came a month after Michael announced that the couple was expecting a baby; he’s been romantically linked with Anna since May 2019.

In his Twitter (now X), Sheen admitted that he ‘wouldn’t normally respond to this kind of rumors, but the sake of people he loves’ made him do so. Addressing his relationship status before meeting his wife, he then wrote:

“I was single from the beginning of last summer until I met my partner Anna who is now going to have our baby. Just for the record. Thanks.

While the actor didn’t mention his ex-partner, it was obvious that it was none other than Aisling Bea.

Even after reports of Sheen’s breakup with Aisling came in September 2018, fans thought of a potential romance revival when the two were pictured together at a charity event in December 2018.

It probably led to allegations that Michael was still in a relationship with Bea when he met his wife, Ann Lundberg.

The news of their alleged romance came shortly after Andrew broke up with British singer Rita Ora, ending a four-month romance for a more private love life. Before that, the actor was in an on-off relationship with Emma Stone for four years before they split for good in 2015.

Andrew and Aisling never appeared together after their only PDA in 2019, and neither of them confirmed if their bond was romantic.

Was Bea Pregnant? Why Did Rumors Arise?

In mid-2021, rumors of Asiling’s pregnancy surfaced after fan began circulating pictures of her with a bumped abdomen. However, in truth, the Irish actress shared a picture of photo of her in a pink floral dress with her bloated stomach and joked that with a caption, “It’s a bread! Excited to announce that I have not & will not give up bread.”

However, some failed to read the caption, and social media shares without authenticity led to rumors of her being pregnant.

Later, Bea clarified the situation and addressed the issue, and wrote, “Alas from some texts I’ve been getting – may I highlight that I am NOT pregnant. I am very bloated.”

Who Are Aisling Bea’s Parents? Father Committed Suicide

Aisling was born to Irish parents Brian O’Sullivan and Helen O’Sullivan (nee Moloney) in Kildare, Ireland. Born on March 16, 1984, the Hard Sun actress’ real name is Aisling O’Sullivan, but she changed her name to “Aisling Bea” to avoid confusion with fellow Irish actress of the same name.

Her father, Brian, was a horse veterinarian who committed suicide when she was only three.

In her interview, the Irish actress said that when she read a suicide note from her father, she didn’t find her name or her sister’s, which led her to think that her dad didn’t love her.

In 2014, after Aisling’s 30th birthday, her father’s employer got in touch with her family and returned a box belonging to her deceased dad. It contained numerous pictures, which were ‘nearly of hers.’

The “Bea” in her stage name “Aisling Bea” is a tribute to her father; it the short form of his first name.

Her mother, Helen, is a former jockey turned secondary school teacher. She used to train jockeys at the Racing Academy and Centre of Education. She is active on Instagram (@sullhel) and Facebook (@helen.osullivan.127).
