This article will explore John Mulaney’s personal life and more on his dating history.
Who is John Mulaney?
Ellen Mulaney and Charles “Chip” Mulaney Jr. welcomed John Mulaney into the world on August 26, 1982 in Chicago, Illinois. His mother, Ellen, is a professor at the Pritzker School of Law at Northwestern University, and his father, Charles, is a partner at the law firm Skadden Arps.
John was born as the third child to his parents, as his family includes an older sister, an older brother, a younger sister, and a younger brother who passed away at birth. In honor of his late brother, Peter Martin, he decided to use the name, Martin.
At a very young age, John was inspired by the I Love Lucy character Ricky Ricardo to pursue a career in entertainment. He also joined the children’s sketch group “The Rugrats” when he was seven years old. His parents declined the opportunity for him to audition for a role in the Home Alone movie. He attended St. Clement School for junior high, when he and his closest friend performed skits instead of doing homework.
As John viewed reruns of legendary shows like I Love Lucy and The Tonight Show Starring Johnny Carson at the Museum of Broadcast Communications, his interest in humour grew. He attended at Georgetown University after graduating from St. Ignatius College Prep in 2000 and majored in English with a theology minor. He joined the Georgetown improv group, where he met Mike Birbiglia and Nick Kroll. He conquered stage fright by doing stand-up comedy while on tour with Birbiglia.
John relocated to New York City after earning his degree in 2004 from Georgetown University and began a career in comedy. The idea for I Love the ’30s, a spoof of I Love the ’80s that he co-wrote with Nick Kroll, was proposed to Comedy Central while he was still working there as an administrative assistant. Dave Chappelle abruptly quit Comedy Central in order to pursue a career as a freelance comic, and John resigned from his position there as a result.
John Mulaney’s Relationships
Mulaney wed the makeup artist Anna Marie Tendler in 2014, and up until their separation announcement in May 2021, things appeared to be going well for the couple.Many fans were shocked to learn that John Mulaney and Anna Marie Tendler were divorcing after six years of marriage and what appeared to be a solid and stable relationship. Mulaney had requested a divorce, according to Mulaney’s agents, who announced the couple’s separation in May 2021.
Despite neither Mulaney nor Tendler having made this claim in the media, people close to the couple assert that Mulaney’s drug and alcohol abuse problems and decision to seek treatment for them were the cause of their divorce. Mulaney has previously spoken candidly about his battles with addiction, and he just revealed that he would be starting treatment in December 2020.
The strain of Mulaney’s addiction and recovery reportedly led Tendler to support Mulaney’s decision to seek treatment, but their marriage ultimately crumbled as a result. Before choosing to end their marriage, the pair apparently tried to resolve their differences for months.
Who is John Mulaney actually dating now?
According to reports, John Mulaney and Olivia Munn started dating in the spring of 2021, not long after Mulaney declared the end of his marriage to Anna Marie Tendler, his spouse of six years. The couple apparently first connected on the set of a TV show several years ago, but they didn’t start dating until lately.
When Mulaney and Munn were seen dining together in Los Angeles in May 2021, romance rumours started to spread. A source said that the two were dating in June 2021 and claimed that they had “a lot in common and are both very open about their feelings.”
The premiere of the movie “The Tomorrow War” in July 2021 marked the couple’s first outing in public as a couple. They were seen grinning for the cameras while holding hands. Mulaney and Munn were seen holding hands and kissing while on a romantic getaway in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, in August 2021.
The couple once more made news in September 2021 when it was revealed that Munn was expecting their first child together. The information was released shortly after Mulaney and Tendler’s divorce was legally finalised.
Mulaney and Munn have not made any announcements regarding the pregnancy or their relationship as of April 2023. But according to sources close to the couple, they are very excited to start a family.
