There is no doubt that Cruz has been so much transparent about his professional life, he has been able to keep his personal life very secret. There is no verified information about his married life, wife or any affairs. Thus, it can be assured that he is married to his significant girlfriend. But later in an interview, he has revealed his wife's name, Simi who asked her not to do the repulsive character as Castro in Cleveland Abduction. But after she went through the script of the movie, she diverted her mind and responded with the positive answer;
If you don’t play the devil, the people aren’t going to care about the victim; you really have to do it!’
He also opened that he does what his wife says which shows that the relationship between the couple is a blissful bond.

But the evidence about when he got married and how long has he been together with his wife is still suspicious. The gossips about him being gay and dating guys are false because now that it’s clear that he is a married man.
