Eventhough Rachel and Jamie have always kept their private life under wraps, the couple, who have never made an appearance on a red carpet, together were first spotted during a friend’s wedding in Virginia, as well as in L.A. and Paris. Rachel has spoken about becoming a mom in the past. “Having a few [kids] would be great,” she shared to People in 2009. “My mom is a great inspiration to me. She’s a nurse and very nurturing and gentle. She lets me be who I am. Hopefully, I can take on those qualities and be as great as her."
Before she started dating Jamie, the 39-year-old was in a four-year relationship with The Notebook co-star Ryan Gosling. Their romance ended in 2008. She then dated Michael Sheen until 2013. As for the Dear John screenwriter, Jamie Linden lived his own four-year love story with actress Zooey Deschanel, before meeting the Midnight in Paris beauty in 2016.
