Bio and Education
Beena Patel is one of those celebrities who like to live a tranquil life away from the media. Born in a Hindu family, Patel was born sometime in the 1980s. There is no information regarding her parents and siblings.
Even their names and whereabouts are unknown as of now. At times this secrecy is understood as fame came from the association with the better half.
But Beena is highly qualified in terms of academics. Similarly, Patel graduated from high school in 2003 and was fluent in English, Hindu, Spanish, and Gujarati.
After graduation, she enrolled at the University of California in Los Angeles. There she graduated with a degree in Physiology, Neurobiology, and Behavioral Analysis.
But this was not the end, as Patel pursued her higher studies in the field of medicine. In 2007, Patel joined the University of California in the Davis School of Medicine for her Master’s. Likewise, she graduated with a major in Public Health.
It seems like there is no end to her thirst for knowledge. Even after her Master’s, Patel enrolled at the same University for her doctorate. As of now, she is known as Dr. Beena Minhaj. In 2013, she received the esteemed prize called Roemer Award.
Age and Measurements
Since Beena is super secretive, there is no idea regarding her age. However, it is assumed that she was born in the 1980s. So, she is somewhere around the 25-30 age group. Looking at the images of the lady, we feel that she stands at 5’5″ with an average weight, but nothing accurately can be said about it.
Moving on, Beena has beautiful olive skin that glows under the limelight. Also, she is relatively tall and has a healthy body. Along with that, her long black hair and dark brown eyes do nothing but adding more to her beauty.
Anything on the shoe and dress size will also be updated soon.
Beena Patel: Husband and Children
As mentioned above, Beena is the wife of a famous comedian and TV host, Hasan Minhaj. They first met each other at the University of California in Davis. Hasan was attracted to Beena ever since their first encounter.
After a few meetings, the couple took their relationship a step further and tied the knot in 2015. They held a simple but beautiful wedding ceremony with their family, relatives, and friends.
The couple has been together ever since then without any confrontations and errors. They welcomed their first child, a beautiful daughter, in 2018. Minhaj and Patel have kept her name a secret from the media.
However, Patel is seen accompanying her husband during shows and award functions. In November 2017, she was with her husband in the white house during Obama‘s tenure. Also, in 2017, Patel was seen attending Donald Trump’s ‘White House Correspondents’ Dinner,’ which was hosted by her husband.
The loving wife was seen accompanying her husband yet again to the 70th ‘Primetime Emmy Awards’. The ceremony took place in Los Angeles, California, in 2018.
Readers here might be wanting to know about the past relationship of this lady, but sadly nothing is known. Other than the association with Hasan Minhaj, there was no room for any fame. Unfortunately, we are left barehanded.
