From models to high school sweethearts: Meet the adorable partners of The Bear cast

How Jeremy and Ayo are both single is beyond me

Whilst the romances in The Bear can sometimes make you want to bury your head into a pillow, those members of the cast who have a partner in real life are all in very happy relationships. From secretive and private relationships to marrying their high school sweetheart, let’s meet the adorable partners of The Bear cast.

Jeremy Allen White

Jeremy Allen White is the lead cast member in The Bear and whilst fans are majorly rooting for him to end up with Sydney on the show, in real life his love life surrounding his partner is a little more complex.

Jeremy was previously married to actress Addison Timlin, with the two marrying in 2019 and having two children together. Sadly, their relationship didn’t last and Addison filed for divorce in 2023. Since then Jeremy has been fairly off the radar with new relationships and whilst he was seen getting cosy with Rosalia, the two haven’t been spotted together since January of this year. Sounds like he’s still firmly on the market!

Ebon Moss-Bachrach

Ebon plays the stony-faced Richie in The Bear, but his real relationship with his partner is very wholesome. He met his now wife, Yelena, at a dinner party when both of them were in a relationship, but Ebon immediately caught her eye. She explained: “When I saw Ebon, I was, like, ‘Oh, my God, he’s cute. Who is this guy?’ My friend was, like, ‘Forget it, he has a girlfriend and he’s an actor.’ And I was, like, ‘Ugh!’ When you think of an actor as a boyfriend, that’s not where you want to go. They just seem like such a pain in the ass.”

The two then reconnected and just a year and a half later they began dating and now have two daughter together, and look very happy together!

Abby Elliot

Abby plays the cast role of Natalie, Carmy’s sister on The Bear and in real life, she keeps her relationship with her partner Bill Kennedy pretty private. Her husband Bill is a screenwriter and producer, with the two marrying in 2016 and having two children together.

Matty plays the loveable cast member Neil on The Bear and it turns out the way he met his partner in real life is even more adorable. Matty has been with his high school sweetheart Trish for over 20 years. They got married in 2014 and have three children together.

Matty posted a sweet picture of himself and Spencer on Instagram on what appears to be their wedding day, captioning the photo, “You are the one always have been always will be! Life ain’t a straight line but you were always by my side! We’ve been together more years than not now by a couple of years and I can not wait to spend every day with you forever! The love I feel for you makes me proud of us the work and commitment all the ups and downs always more good than bad and our family is so sick.” I’m not crying, you are.

Whilst Ayo has been rumoured to be in relationships with lots of A-list celebrities, including fellow Irish actor Paul Mescal she is currently single. I’m obsessed with this woman and she deserves only the best!
