About Nev Schulman & Laura Perlongo

The co-host of MTV’s Catfish: The TV Show, Nev Schulman and his partner Laura Perlongo have had a big year, welcoming baby daughter Cleo to the family. Their candid social media posts document the chaotic (and often hilarious) life of new parents, while strongly advocating for families everywhere, starting with America. The couple joined issue-driven media company ATTN: to talk about the many problems with postpartum healthcare in the United States. The video, produced by ATTN: is at once disarming with family charm, and shocking in its implications. Although the message comes amidst political upheaval, Cleo and Laura help Nev recognize that “no matter what’s going on in the world, life is precious and we should all find more time to love each other.”
