Shortly before his unexpected death, Chadwick Boseman married his wife Taylor Simone Ledward.

Prior to their marriage, the pair had been together for five years according to Today. The couple, who kept their relationship mostly private, was first spotted together in 2015 at Los Angeles International Airport. Ledward’s grandmother confirmed the relationship in 2018, saying “they respect each other. She’s very happy, and he is, too.”

Although Boseman and Ledward didn't publicly announce their marriage, the couple is believed to have gotten engaged in October in Malibu, California. The actor's family confirmed the couple's marriage after he died on Friday.

"He died in his home with his wife and family by his side," the family stated. 

Ledward keeps most of her life private, but here are some of the details known about her.
