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.

Jamie and Rachel Have Been Together Since They Were Spotted Together In the Spring of 2016

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 but nothing has been heard about that since then as the two are notoriously private. They have not even shared the name of their first child with the public.

How Long Have They Been Married?

Given that Rachel McAdams and Jamie Linden have been together for almost have a decade, and have even started a family together, it is only natural that some people have come to regard Jamie as Rachel’s husband.

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.
