Aziz Ansari, Hilarious comedian and star of NBC’s hit comedy Parks and Recreation, has taken his relationship with his girlfriend to the next level. Known for keeping his personal life private, the star recently stepped out holding hands with girlfriend Courtney McBroom. It’s appropriate that one of the hottest young comedians around would be dating a rising star in her own respective field. McBroom, a hospitality professional, has worked as an operator for celebrity chef David Chang, the mind behind New York City’s popular Momofuku Noodle Bar and its related neighbor, Milk Bar. McBroom has written two different Milk Bar cookbooks and writes about food for Vice and Lucky Peach websites. She is also a classically trained pastry chef, an avid cookbook collector, and has traveled immensely to explore new foods.
Although Ansari has mostly kept quiet about the relationship, he did refer vaguely to his lady during a Billboard Magazine interview last May. “I met her years ago when she was seeing someone. I thought she was really cool,” he told Billboard.” Then I ran into her randomly and she was single. I’ve kind of settled down.” In his typical funny fashion, he then stated, “I was the guy eating Skittles and having lots of fun, and then I was like, ‘I need a nice nutritious salad’ – she’s the salad.”
Reportedly, McBroom has basically moved into Aziz’s Los Angeles home. The comedian, 31, has also been writing a book about relationships, which should be both super funny as well as informative thanks to his new acquired skills on romantic partnerships.
Aziz will reprise his role as Tom Haverford on Parks and Recreation’s seventh season when it returns for its final season in spring 2015.
