The Truth About Meghan Trainor And Daryl Sabara's Relationship

What's the truth about Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara's relationship? The singer first became famous with her hit single, "All About That Bass," in 2014; since then, her career has taken off (via Billboard). But for as much fame and fortune that Trainor has, her life wouldn't be complete without Daryl Sabara, her husband, and one true love. 

Additionally, for as well-known as Trainor is in Hollywood, Sabara isn't a stranger to the world of entertainment, either. In fact, you might even recognize him as Juni Cortez in Spy Kids, one of the series' main characters. And even though Trainor and Sabara have each come into their own over the years, they're happiest when they're together, and that just makes them so much more relatable and perfect.

Yes, Trainor and Sabara are an adorable couple, and the story of their relationship and how they met is super sweet. As for the truth about Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara's relationship? It's every bit as perfect as you'd imagine.

Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara were set up by a mutual friend

Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara didn't just meet on accident, though they also weren't set up by a millionaire matchmaker. Instead, the couple was set up by a mutual friend. And yes, that friend also happens to be a celeb. As Trainor told People, she never would have met Sabara if it weren't for Chloë Grace Moretz, who's undergone a stunning transformation. "I asked her to set me up on a date with the nicest guy ever," Trainor revealed. "And she was like, 'Well, that's my friend Daryl.'" 

Trainor then explained that her first date with Sabara was a double date with Moretz and her boyfriend at the time, Brooklyn Beckham. The foursome went bowling and sang karaoke, which truly sounds like a great way to get to know someone. "It was kind of like a middle school date," Trainor joked. But hey, it worked. 

After hitting it off immediately on that first official date, despite how childish it may have seemed, Trainor and Sabara's love story began to take off — and it's all thanks to Moretz.

Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara actually met long before things got romantic

Even though Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara hit it off pretty much right away on their double date with Chloë Grace Moretz, the pair had actually met before in a previous encounter. Specifically, Trainor told People that way back in 2014, before her first single had even topped the charts, she ran into Sabara at a party in Los Angeles. And from what Trainor recalls of the rendezvous, it was pretty hilarious and memorable. "I was like, 'Oh my God, it's Spy Kids,'" Trainor told the publication. "I went up to him while he was getting a drink. I was like, 'Are you Spy Kids?' And he was like, 'Yeah.' And I thought that was so cool."

But that's not all. After the night was over, Trainor was still pretty starstruck. "I called my entire family and was like, 'I partied with Spy Kids last night,'" she continued. If that's not a totally meant-to-be first meeting, then what is?

Daryl Sabara's first impression of Meghan Trainor was pretty sexy

It's no secret that a first impression is important, especially when it comes to romance. And for Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara, that first impression was actually pretty sexy — at least for Sabara, that is. The two interviewed each other for Trainor's show, "Dirty Pop Radio," and according to Entertainment Tonight, things got hot and heavy for Sabara fairly quickly.

After Trainor asked her beau why he fell for her, he responded, "When you walked in the room, I was like, 'Damn, she's a dime'." Phew! That's not a bad first impression, especially from a potential love interest. 

However, the same cant' be said for Trainor's first impression of Sabara. She pointed out that he had a beard, and therefore "looked scrub." But, Sabara maintained that he didn't shave on purpose. "And from that moment on, I always promised you that I can get better and that I can get cleaner-looking," he said. So while Sabara may have had the hots for Trainor from the get-go, she took a little longer to get fired up, and that's OK.

Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara's relationship started in summer of 2016

As is the case with many celebrity relationships, Meghan Trainor and Daryl Sabara weren't exactly super public when they first got together. After all, privacy is hard to come by when you're a celeb, so the two likely wanted to maintain any sense of normalcy they could at the start of their relationship. But from what we can tell, it appears as though the two got together for the first time in the summer of 2016.

In July 2017, Trainor shared an adorable tribute to Sabara on her Instagram, commemorating their one-year anniversary. "An entire year with the love of my life," she captioned the post. Of course, Sabara commemorated their anniversary on his Instagram page as well. "You are the greatest person I know, and I'm so lucky to call you my best friend," he wrote in the caption. " I will love you forever and for always. You are my whole world. Thank you for the most amazing year." 

As their one-year anniversary was in July 2017, that means the two have been officially together since July 2016, and they've come so far since.

Daryl Sabara has inspired some of Meghan Trainor's songwriting

Meghan Trainor has more than a few hits in her singing and songwriting arsenal. But as iconic as "All About That Bass," was, or as fun as "Lips Are Movin" is to dance to, the Grammy winner actually says a large part of her success is thanks to her boo. 

As it turns out, Daryl Sabara has inspired some of Trainor's songwriting. "I wrote six songs on the road about him in front of his face," she told Cosmopolitan in a 2017 interview. "One is called 'Marry Me.'" Hey, when you know, you know.

Sabara's involvement in Trainor's music has only grown since then, as he was heavily featured on her 2020 album, Treat Myself.

Daryl Sabara helps bring Meghan Trainor down to earth

As famous as Meghan Trainor is, it can be easy for her to forget that her husband, Daryl Sabara, was a child star and a total icon. His role in Spy Kids is what most people associate with him, and for Trainor, it's brought her down to earth a bit that someone might recognize him over her.

Specifically, in an episode of her "Dirty Pop Radio," show, Trainor told a story; she once had her ego checked during an outing with Sabara, when a 3-year-old child approached them. "He walked up to us and I was like, 'Move over Daryl, I got this,'" she recalled. But she didn't need to do this, as the young fan recognized Sabara from Spy Kids, and not her. Ouch, that's gotta be a little embarrassing. 

Fortunately, Trainor recognized her mistake, and even laughed it off, calling Sabara an "icon." As fans of Spy Kids know, she's not wrong.
