John Mulaney’s ex-wife Anna Marie Tendler has admitted she’s ‘totally shocked’ that he’s struck up a romance with Olivia Munn and become a new dad so quickly. 

The Saturday Night Live star separated from Anna in May 2021 after seven years of marriage before filing for divorce in July. 

It came after he completed a 60-day rehab stint for addiction issues in February 2020. 

In September 2021, John, 39, confirmed that he was now in a relationship with actress Olivia, 41, who he first met in 2013. The new couple then welcomed their first child together, son Malcolm Hiệp, on November 24. 

John’s divorce from Anna was finalised on January 6. 

Anna, 36, has now opened up about the devastating end of her marriage in a new interview, telling Harper’s Bazaar: ‘Everything that has transpired has been totally shocking and I think surreal. In a way, I feel like, well, it can only go up from here, because I reached the depth of where I could go… 

‘Had a lot of bad days and medium days. I wouldn’t say I had any good days until the summer.’

The artist is still living in the house she purchased with John in rural Connecticut in June 2020. 

She said of the isolated property: ‘I do miss my friends, and I am aware that I’m maybe a little too young to be living in the middle of the woods by myself. [But] I was able to create the space that, even as a child, I always wanted to live in.’ 

Anna still has a painting she is most fond of that a fan of John’s painted for him and gifted to the comedian at a show. When asked if John would want the gift back, she responded: ‘I don’t think so.’ 

It’s the first time the artist has spoken out in-depth about the break-up. When their separation was announced last year, Anna said in a brief statement: ‘I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery.’

Olivia defended her relationship with John and said a ‘false narrative’ had been created. 

The Predator actress told the Los Angeles Times: ‘It’s definitely not foreign for me to have people speculate incorrectly about things and to have rumours run rampant in one way.

‘They think they know our relationship so well. When in reality, they don’t. There’s no way anyone could know what any of his relationships were or what our relationship is.’

The actress did not speak specifically about any rumours because she didn’t want to ‘feed into a narrative that’s just not true’. 

She continued: ‘If I try to say anything, I run the risk of being called messy or not telling the truth. The only way to win, for me, is to pull back and to not play the game at all.’
