A rep for Wong did not immediately respond to PEOPLE's request for comment.

In December, Wong, 41, filed for divorce from her husband of seven years, citing “irreconcilable differences” in documents obtained by PEOPLE. The pair were stated to have a prenuptial agreement in place. At the time, Wong was seeking joint legal and physical custody of their two children.

The divorce filing came after Wong confirmed her split with Hakuta, 41, in April last year.

A source told PEOPLE of the split at the time, "It's amicable and they will continue to co-parent lovingly.”

Speaking to The Hollywood Reporter for the issue's cover story in March, the comedian discussed what it's like to have her two daughters by her side on the road.

"Taking kids on the road is so beautiful. It's the opposite of film and television where I'm just gone all day," she explained. "It's a really fun family adventure because basically at night I'm performing, and then during the day, we go on adventures to the children's museum or the gardens or we see family friends. It's really cool that they've seen so much of America."

Wong also expressed the importance of her daily routine, which includes being especially present in her girls' lives.

"Every single morning I make my kids lunch. I pick them up every day after school. And I go out every night and do a set," she said.

Wong met tech entrepreneur Hakuta at a friend’s wedding in 2010. The pair hit it off instantly and married in San Francisco on Nov. 27, 2014.

Following her split from Hakuta, the Always Be My Maybe star briefly dated Bill Hader in the fall of 2022. In April, it was confirmed to PEOPLE that Wong and Hader, 45, had rekindled their romance and the pair have since been seen out and about together on several occasions.

Wong said in March that, despite their split, she and Hakuta are still “best friends” and that they are “really, really close.”
