Cobie and actor boyfriend Taran Killam had their first child, a girl they named Shaelyn Cado Killam, on May 16, 2009.
While announcing his departure from the long-awaited Wonder Woman (2009) feature, Joss Whedon joked that Cobie Smulders was his choice to play Princess Diana of Themiscyra (Wonder Woman herself). Director Joss Whedon and Cobie are friends.
In early 2007 Cobie had a photo spread in Self magazine.
Cobie Smulder's theory considering the ABC show Lost is: purgatory.
She traveled for five years as part of her modeling work as a teenager.
Her theatre credits include Singing in the Rain, Grease and Women and Wallace.
Cobie had a starring role in the Canadian short film Candy From Strangers, where she played the role of Martina. David Paetkau and Christian Bocher starred alongside side her in the fourteen-minute film.
Cobie appeared in the eighteen minute comedic short film Escape, in which she played the part of the "Psychotic Brunette."
Cobie resides in Los Angeles, California.
Cobie is Canadian, and so is her character, Robin Scherbatsky, on How I Met Your Mother.
As a child and teenager she wanted to become either a doctor or a marine biologist, not an actress.
Cobie is 1.75 metres tall, or 5 foot 9 inches. She has dark brown hair and blue eyes.
As a teenager she participated in many sports such as swimming, tennis, and soccer.
She is fluent in French.
Cobie was voted "Most Respected" by her classmates in her senior year in high school.
She says she is "very into photography and marine biology".
Her father's a dentist, while her stepmother is a professional fund-raiser. She has four brothers and three sisters.
Cobie: [On who she would love to have dinner with, living or dead] I would really love to sit with Kathryn Hepburn because I find her so interesting. I also lost a cousin a few years ago who I was really close to, he was like my brother, so if I could have dinner with him one more time I'd love that.
Cobie: [On wanting to play the character "Wonder Woman"] I think it's just the curse of having brown hair in this industry and being an actress. I think it's just a general, like, question that everyone's going to pose their clients.
Cobie: [On "How I Met Your Mother" guest star Britney Spears and handling media attention] I think [Britney] is a really nice person who is just stuck in this frickin' crazy ball of media attention and it's just crazy. I would never be able to handle that amount of publicity and that amount of press surrounding me at all times.
Cobie: [On the future of "How I Met Your Mother" after the third season] I've always seen the mother as someone we meet and then that's the end of the show, so if [CBS] is like 'Guys, you don't have a fourth season,' that's when writers would be like, 'OK! Time to bring the mother in!'. But I really don't know what's going to happen at the end of the show! I really, seriously know nothing.
Cobie Smulders: [On the How I Met Your Mother music video] Robin herself is just very conservative. This was something she just doesn't want to remember. She just wants it to be a part of her life that is forgotten.
Cobie: [On rehearsing a scene] What's more awkward than doing a shower scene? Rehearsing a shower scene. Josh Radnor and I were like: 'We're imagining water running right now.'
Cobie: [On How I Met Your Mother] There are a lot of sides to the characters on our show. Lily can be sarcastic, smart, funny. They're hooking into all these grey areas of the characters.
Cobie: [On Ted and her character's relationship in How I Met Your Mother] Yes. It's very interesting of them to pursue that and explore that type of relationship, even though everyone knows she's not the mother. But that doesn't mean it's any less significant.
Cobie: [On How I Met Your Mother] Ted is such a romantic, he's more of the girl in the situation, I suppose. But I think it's a realistic approach. A lot of people have opinions about Robin and him not ending up together, but I always say, just because they don't end up together doesn't mean it's not a significant relationship.
Cobie: [On How I Met Your Mother] I've read a lot of scripts and I'm really luck to be able to play a woman who's funny and can be charming and has a mischievous side to her as well. I'm really lucky.
