Is Gugu Mbatha-Raw Married? Who is the Husband?
Gugu Mbatha-Raw, the mixed-ethnicity holding actress, is not married in 2020.
Despite her fans and followers speculating all kinds of things, Gugu is not married, and hence, there’s no husband as well.
However, that does not mean the Misbehaviour actress does not have any thrill in her personal life.
It’s just that Gugu remains very focused on bettering herself and making the most out of her career.
But at the age of 39, we believe that she’s also thinking about settling down in a couple of years, give or take a few.
While we cheer at the idea of Gugu walking down the aisle, in her own ethnicity rich wedding environment, there’s a fat chance none of it will make it out to the public.
In her social media, Gugu remains absolutely silent regarding her personal life. Outside of it remains the same as well.
The 38 years, old British actress stays very conscious about giving away any personal information that might reveal certain aspects of her relationship.
So, does that mean Gugu is dating someone right now?
As frustrating as it may sound, but the answer is maybe and maybe not.
But, what we do know the person who dated this beautiful, slim-figured actress.
Gugu Mbatha-Raw Dating, Boyfriend
Although Gugu remains extremely secretive of her personal life these days, that wasn’t the case back in the days; not at least to the present level.
In the early 2010s, Gugu began dating a fellow actor named Harry Lloyd.
While famous as an actor who appeared in Robin Hood and Game of Thrones, there’s also another reason why many people know Harry.
He’s the great-great-great-grandson of Charles Dickins, an English writer who wrote tales like “Oliver Twist,” and “A Christmas Carole.”
Harry, who portrayed the character of Viserys Targaryen and Fall Out actress dated each other but not for long.
In 2012, the actor couple broke up and ended their relationship.
Unsurprisingly, Harry also shares the same protective nature towards his personal life information.
Just like his ex-girlfriend, Harry also remains quite secret about any possible girlfriend.

Gugu – Mixed-Ethnicity Background
Gugu was born to a South African father and English mother who came from white ethnicity.
That’s also a reason why Gugu does not look predominantly black. However, she has only inherited a tiny bit of her white mother’s looks.
Gugu was born as Gugulethu Sophia Mbatha-Raw to her parents. Her father, Patrick Mbatha, is a doctor and her mother, Anne Raw, works as a nurse.
When Gugu was just born, her parents called her Sophia. However, a couple of days later, her father came up with the name Gugulethu.
“Gugulethu” translates to “our pride” in Zulu and isiXhosa. Her first name came from two words, “igugu lethu.”
Her father left Anne and Gugu when she was just one year old. Since then, Mommy Anne Raw raised Gugu as a single mother.
There were times when Gugu and her mother faced financial issues. Like the time when at the age of eight, Gugu wanted to attend Sylvia Young Theatre School in London.
Her mother couldn’t afford the expensive fee structure of the school at that time. But, since then, Gugu has grown up to realize that it was for the best.
