Although Andrew and Emma called it quits in October 2015, fans’ investment in Emma’s romantic life has not since diminished, with many continuing to keep a close eye on the actor’s love life. 

Who is Emma Stone’s husband?

Emma Stone has been married to former Saturday Night Live writer and director Dave McCary. 

The pair first crossed paths in December 2016 when Emma hosted an episode of SNL, however, it wasn’t until June 2017 that Emma and Dave were first linked romantically, with rumours of the couple’s romance circulating after the duo were spotted leaving the premiere for Dave’s film Brigsby Bear. 

The couple kept their relationship out of the public eye for over a year, with some fans even suggesting that Emma and Andrew Garfield had rekindled their romance after being spotted out for dinner together.

Over 18 months since they were last spotted together, sources speaking to Us Weekly reported that Emma and Dave were still happily together, with the couple reportedly being spotted packing on the PDA at a roller-skating party. 

“At one point, they slow-danced to a somewhat upbeat song. He initiated it and she excitedly followed. They held hands [with] his other hand around her waist and hers around his shoulders,” the source shared. 

In January 2019, the couple were spotted courtside at the Los Angeles Clippers basketball match before hitting the red carpet for the first time as a couple one week later at the 2019 SAG Awards.

On December 4, 2019, Emma and Dave shared the happy news on Instagram that they were officially engaged, with the now-deleted post sharing a glimpse at Emma’s stunning engagement ring.

While the couple did not share any news of their wedding, sources speaking to both E! News and Us Weekly in January 2021 shared that Emma and Dave were expecting their first child together. 

“She seems very happy and very excited about becoming a mother… She looks great. She looks healthy. She’s glowing,” a source told Us Weekly. 

Two months later, TMZ shared that the couple had welcomed the arrival of their child on March 13, 2021, with sources revealing in September 2023 that the couple gave birth to a daughter, Louise.

In January 2024, Emma made a rare public declaration of love at the 2024 Golden Globe Awards. Receiving the award for Best Actress in a Comedy or Musical for her standout performance in Poor Things, Emma started her acceptance speech with a sweet dedication to her husband. 

“This is amazing. Dave, I have to start with you really quickly. I love you very much. Thank you for everything,” Emma said.

Following Emma’s win, the couple have made a handful of red-carpet appearances together in the latter half of the 2024 Hollywood awards season, most recently appearing at the 2024 Academy Awards. 

Receiving the Academy Award for Best Actress for her performance in Poor Things, Emma gave a rare special shoutout to her husband and daughter during her emotional acceptance speech. 

“I really just want to thank my family… My husband Dave. I love you so much. Most importantly, my daughter, who is going to be three in three days and has turned our lives technicolour. I love you bigger than the whole sky, my girl,” Emma said.
