OpenAI CEO and ChatGPT scion Sam Altman exchanged vows with his longtime beau Oliver Mulherin in an intimate ceremony with a few friends and family in Hawaii. The pictures of the couple in simple white shirts and a flower tucked in the pocket from their beach wedding gather love across social media. 


Zerodha co-founder Nikhil Kamath on Friday took to social media to extend his congratulations to the couple. He shared a picture with Altman from the previous year's White House State Dinner, where he had met the newlyweds.

The duo has kept their relationship a private affair and were first spotted together in June 2023 at the White House attending a dinner with Prime Minister Narendra Modi. In September 2023, Altman in an interview with New York Magazine said that he and Mulherin would like to have kids soon, confirming their relationship.

Altman first made waves as he introduced ChatGPT bringing a storm in the AI world. He also made headlines for a dramatic turn of events after he was sacked from the post of CEO of OpenAI by the board and was re-hired five days after social media backlash as people came forward in support of Altman. 

He has once again buzzed the internet with pictures of his cosy-intimate beach wedding. He reportedly confirmed the wedding in a text message with NBC

As per the screenshot shared by the Free Press Journal, Oliver Mulherin also shared on his private Instagram account the same wedding pictures shared by X (formerly Twitter user) @heyBarsee and captioned his wedding pictures with adorable little text as he wrote: “Married my best friend and love of my life”. 


Who Is Oliver Mulherin? 

Oliver Mulherin, the husband of OpenAI CEO Sam Altman, has entered the spotlight following their marriage. While Altman's career in tech is widely known, Mulherin has largely kept a very private profile.

Born in Australia, Mulherin graduated with a computer science degree from the University of Melbourne in 2016. His LinkedIn profile reveals a career path in software engineering, with stints at Broadwing, SPARK Neuro, and most recently, Meta (then Facebook) from 2020 to 2022, mapping his journey from Sydney to San Fransico.

Although details of his specific projects remain under wraps, his expertise in software development positions him as a valuable asset to Altman's world of artificial intelligence making them an adorable tech couple.

Mulherin continues to maintain a private life. He rarely makes public appearances or engages on social media. This intentional privacy leaves room for speculation, fueling interest in his personal and professional endeavours.
