A fun bit of trivia about funnyman Rob Schneider’s wife, Patricia Azarcoya Schneider. Also known as Patricia Maya Schneider, the former model is from Merida.

Their marriage is not one of those Hollywood whirlwind romances. After meeting on set and dating for six years, Rob and Patricia were married in 2011 in a private Beverly Hills ceremony.

Now a 32-year-old TV producer and actor, Patricia has worked on numerous Mexican productions and Spanish television shows, including “El Monchis,” “CuentameLove,” “Que Show con Alejandra Bogue” and “Guerra De Chistes.”

Patricia is also an avid philanthropist, supporting causes including Penny Lanes, which helps families and veterans facing homelessness, as well as The San Fernando Valley Refugee Children Center.

Although from the Yucatan capital, Patricia is of Filipino descent, and together, the couple became parents of two daughters; 8-year-old Miranda, and 3-year-old Madeline.

Rob, 56, is also dad to 31-year-old Tanner Elle Schneider, who’s better known as singer Elle King. Elle’s mom is Rob’s ex-wife, model London King. So yes, his eldest daughter is pretty close in age to his wife.

Patricia was the leading lady in the Netflix sitcom “Real Rob,” which she co-wrote with her husband and calls her first American acting gig.

The scripted comedy, which included Rob’s stand-up performances, ran from 2015 to 2017.

“Real Rob” centered on the Schneider family dynamics and their Hollywood lifestyle, with mostly lighthearted subject matters.

“I didn’t want to be safe, because it’s more exciting as a performer to be fearless, and to let my guard down more than I have ever done,” Rob told the Hollywood Reporter. “I mean my wife and I might never do another season. I don’t know.”
