The rep added,

Who is Bob married to?
Bob Odenkirk is not just an amazing actor but a wonderful husband and father as well. Odenkirk is happily married to his wife Naomi Odenkirk since 1997. The couple first met each other in 1994 during one of his comedy shows in West Hollywood. His charming personality swept Noami off her feet and she told everyone about her crush on him.
People offered to introduce her to him which she refused initially. When she finally met him on the set Bob did not seem interested in her. But they met again outside a comedy club in Santa Monica. She said,
“I didn’t know why he finally noticed me. It’s not like I suddenly became his type. I still don’t think I’m his type, but we get along great.”
