Paul Khoury is the famous and versatile husband of “Twilight” star Ashley Greene. The couple’s journey began as friends long before they became dates, and they were engaged for 18 months before they tied the knot.
On September 16, 2022, Ashley Greene and her husband Paul Khoury officially became parents for the first time when they welcomed their daughter, Kingsley Rainnn Khoury.
The elated actress took to Instagram to share the good news while showing off just her baby’s hand with the baby wrapped in a red blanket.

In the caption, Greene stated that everything fell apart when their daughter entered their lives, and that she and Khoury couldn’t explain their love for their little girl.
The couple met through a mutual friend in 2009 and remained friends until 2013, when they officially started dating. After three years of dating, she proposed to him and they got married on July 6, 2018.
Paul Khoury is an Australian and Lebanese television personality
Khoury is an actor, writer, and producer known for “Fridgeport,” “White Dwarf,” and “Valley Peaks.” He worked as a production supervisor for the underwater unit on “The Immaculate Room,” a film starring his wife.
He is a director, entrepreneur, storyteller and artist, and was once a caretaker. In 2002, while working as a duty manager at Melbourne Airport, he broke the tradition of not being a celebrity winner when he won Cleo magazine’s Bachelor of the Year.
The Australian and Lebanese TV personality is also friends with Liam Hemsworth, and in 2013 he made headlines after he was photographed by paparazzi with his friend’s then-fiancée, Miley Cyrus.
That same year was when he started dating Greene. The actress later revealed in an interview that she pursued her husband after five years of good friendship.
The actress, who made it a rule not to accept proposals unless she had been dating her partner for at least two years, said:
“From the beginning, we realized that we wanted to be together, but we knew that we didn’t want to rush things and enjoy ourselves.”
Greene further stated that they both wanted to enjoy their relationship and live together before getting engaged. After the engagement, they also had no plans to rush a wedding.
Ashley and Paul had an ethereal wedding in “Twilight”
On December 19, 2016, Ashley Greene and her partner of three years, Khoury, had a romantic getaway in Australia and New Zealand. When they visited Bridal Veil Falls in New Zealand, he asked her to marry him at the bottom of the falls.
The excited actress said yes, but the couple kept their engagement under wraps for over a week before revealing the big news on their Instagram.
The actress posted the video of the magical proposal and promised him her undying and immeasurable love in the caption. She also wrote:
“This is the most beautiful moment I could have hoped for. You have successfully made me the happiest and luckiest woman in the world.”
In July 2018, Greene and Khoury were married among the redwoods at a family retreat near California. The unique setting of their ethereal wedding looked like something out of “Twilight.”
Ashley and Paul couldn’t wait to become parents
In early 2022, during an interview on her “The Twilight Effect” podcast, Greene revealed that she and Khoury were open to having children.
They weren’t the only ones who wanted babies, as their parents also wanted grandchildren. However, the couple also knew that they would be ready when the time was right.
A month after the interview was published, the actress’ representative shared that the couple is excitedly expecting their first child.
In July 2022, when talking about her pregnancy and being a mother, the actress claimed that her mother had told her that it was an exciting experience to see her son blossom into a unique human being.
Greene understood that no matter his decisions or actions, his son would be different. She also yearned for the magic of being a girl again as she saw the world through her baby’s eyes.
As a mother, Greene takes parenting advice from Bella Swan’s relationship with Renesmee in “Twilight.” She said:
“The only thing I will take from Bella and her relationship with Renesmee is the fierce protection and loyalty she has towards this child.”
The actress, determined to protect her baby at all costs, believes that being protective is an innate ability that comes with being a mother.
