Who is Quinn Lundberg?
Quinn Lundberg is a Canadian businesswoman, policy advocate and charity worker who is better known as the wife of American actor, comedian and writer Zach Galifianakis.. Along with Melissa Leschuck, she co-founded the nonprofit organization ‘Growing Voices’ in 2013 to give voice to people to counter mental health stigma and discrimination. In 2016, she and Erica Chidi Cohen co-founded the educational business platform LOOM, which offers an entirely new inclusive and choice-based approach to health education. She was previously involved with UNICEF and traveled around the world to promote sustainable community development in backward countries. Some of her other charitable initiatives include working towards alleviating domestic violence in North Carolina and contributing to build a community center in rural Malawi. She also obtained a degree in Public Policy to help herself with her work. While she is very busy in her own field and prefers to stay away from the limelight, she occasionally accompanies her husband to Hollywood events. A trained dancer, she was allowed to showcase her moves before Canadian peacekeeping troops during a visit to Bosnia.
Rise to Stardom
Quinn Lundberg had worked as a professional dancer in her youth, but later moved to New York City to receive higher education. During this time,she met Melissa Leschuck—who would later become her business partner—and also worked with UNICEF at the United Nations. In 2013, she teamed up with Leschuck to establish the nonprofit organization, ‘Growing Voices’, which aimed to support local leaders in making sustainable community change. She also travelled to many developing countries across the globe to gather information on creating community in remote spots around the world. To further arm herself with better knowledge, she completed her master's degree in Public Policy with special focus on International and Nonprofit Policy. Lundberg, who often gets inspiration from women able to manage countless responsibilities within a system that contains institutional barriers for them, went on to co-found the educational business platform LOOM in 2016 in Los Angeles, California in order to "empower people as they navigate their sexual, reproductive and parenting experience." She also serves as the Chief of Social Impact of her company and has worked with people from different backgrounds. Nevertheless, it is only after her marriage to Zach Galifianakis in 2012 that she gained the attention of international media.

Relationship with Zach Galifianakis
Quinn Lundberg was in a long-term relationship with Zach Galifianakis which only came to fore after the couple tied the knot in a private 30-minute ceremony at the UBC Farm in Vancouver, British Columbia on August 11, 2012. According to guests, on the invitation cards, Zach had put a drawing of himself as a troll and his bride as a stunning tall blonde princess. The two always make their best efforts to keep their personal lives private, which became apparent after they kept the name of their baby boy secret following his birth on September 7, 2013. Zach missed the premiere of his film 'Are You Here' to be with her during the birth.
Referring to the fact that they didn't reveal the name of the child, Zach once joked that they call him 'it' at home and are waiting for him to be 16 years old and pick a name for himself. They welcomed another boy on November 7, 2016, but this time they failed to hide the baby's name, which was revealed to be Rufus Emmanuel Lundberg by the media. The couple owns a farm in Sparta in northeastern Alleghany County, North Carolina and plans to raise their kids there. Lundberg, who has a successful career away from the glitters of the entertainment industry, is not very happy about the extra attention she gets thanks to her celebrity husband, but supports him wholeheartedly in his endeavors nevertheless.
