David Benioff, Amanda Peet’s husband of three years, was born in New York City. His date of birth is not known, however, he is said to have been born around 1970. Benioff was the youngest of three siblings, with two older sisters.

At the age of 22, David became a high school English teacher at Poly Prep in Brooklyn, New York City. He also attended the University of California Irvine and received a Master of Fine Arts degree in the creative writing program. Writing was where Benioff’s passion was and it showed! In 2004, Benioff became a well-known as a screenplay writer. Some of Benioff’s work includes the epic Troy (2004) for which Warner Bros pictures paid him $2.5 million, the psychological thriller Stay (2005) and The Kite Runner.

Notably, he wrote the screenplay for the X-Men spin-off X-Men Origins: Wolverine. This particular script took him three years to complete. In 2008, his second novel called City of Thieves, A Novel was released.

As far as his personal life goes, David married actress Amanda Peet on September 30, 2006, in New York City. They do have another child together named Frances Pen who was born on February 20, 2007.

Amanda Peet and her husband announced their second pregnancy to the world yesterday.

As a mother of one, Peet is already familiar with the joy motherhood brings. Peet told Cookie magazine last summer about motherhood. “One surprise of motherhood for me was how little control I have. I thought it would be an extended, blissful romance with me at the helm, cuddling this little creature to life. It’s been bittersweet and humbling to let her lead, and to try not to be perfect myself.”

About her little girl, Peet is not looking forward to her growing up. She tells Parade magazine, “I’m trying not to think about what the world will be like when she grows up. I think more about when is she going to start drinking and wearing a G-string and how can I stop those things from happening.”

Add one more kiddo to the mix and Peet will surely find out that life just continues to get more hectic and fun, of course. Big congratulations goes out to Amanda Peet and her husband David Benioff. Here’s to a happy and healthy pregnancy!
