Is Rachel McAdams Married? 

Rachel McAdams is not married, but she is in a long-term relationship with Jamie Linden, a Hollywood Screenwriter. They have been together since 2016 and have two children together.

Given that Rachel McAdams and Jamie Linden have been together for almost a decade and have even started a family together, it is only natural that some people have come to regard Jamie as Rachel McAdams’ husband, but that is not factual.

Even though they had dated other people before they got together, neither Rachel nor Jamie has ever been married. While the actress dated Ryan Gosling and Michael Sheen, the screenwriter dated Zooey Deschanel from June 2012 to August 2014. If Rachel and Jamie are married, then they did so secretly. As far as the public knows, they are unmarried partners.

Perhaps they have resolved that the most important thing for them is to be happy together and not to be labeled as a married couple.

Meet Rachel McAdams’ Long-term Partner – Jamie Linden

Rachel McAdams’ partner, Jamie Linden, is 43 years old as he was born on the 3rd of September 1980. As you would easily find, his spouse, Rachel McAdams was born on the 17th of November 1978. This means that Jamie is nearly two years younger than his famous spouse.

Unlike McAdams, who is known to be the oldest of three children born to a nurse and a truck driver, respectively named Sandra Gale and Lance McAdams, a lot of background information is yet to be learned about Jamie. We can only confirm that he was born and bred in Winter Park, Florida. There, he attended Lake Howell High School, after which he proceeded to Florida State University’s College of Communication, where he studied marketing and media production.

Rachel McAdams and Jamie Linden’s Relationship Has Been Since 2016

To a large extent, Rachel McAdams and Jamie Linden have kept their relationship away from the prying eyes of the public. Because of this, how they met, and the circumstances surrounding the beginning of their relationship are yet to be disclosed. Nonetheless, it might not be wrong to conclude it’s their careers that brought them together, given that they both work in the entertainment industry.

It was in the Spring of 2016 that people started speculating that the two were lovers; this was after they were seen together in Los Angeles, Paris, and then at a friend’s wedding in Virginia. It kind of became obvious that they were romantic partners even though they never discussed this with the media and avoided appearing together at industry events.

If anyone doubted that the two were together, the doubts were cleared when they welcomed a son on the 10th of April 2018. As of August 2020, it was reported that they were expecting a second child, and they welcomed the child, a daughter, in late 2020. The couple is notoriously private and has yet to share the names of their kids with members of the public.
