Olivia Munn And John Mulaney's Relationship Timeline

In an interview on "Late Night with Seth Meyers" on September 8, 2021, John Mulaney recounted the details of his "packed" year — "packed" is certainly an understatement (via YouTube). The comedian shocked the world with news that he had checked into a rehabilitation facility in December of 2020 for drug and alcohol relapse after he hosted an episode of "Saturday Night Live" (via Bustle). Mulaney had first relapsed in September 2020, and gone to rehab for a month before an intervention staged by Meyers and other friends of the comedian encouraged him to go again.


Equally shocking news to emerge about the comedian was his divorce from his wife of six years, Anna Marie Tendler. While Mulaney continued treatment in the spring of 2021 as an outpatient, news surfaced not only of the split, but also of a new relationship he began with actress Olivia Munn. Now, just months later, it has been confirmed that Munn is pregnant with Mulaney's child. How did the two go from a little more than friends to starting a family? Keep reading to find out.

John Mulaney and Olivia Munn have known each other for years

Believe it or not, John Mulaney and Olivia Munn's budding romance got its start over five years ago when they met at Seth Meyers' wedding to his wife Alexi — although it took a while to gain any traction. In a 2015 conversation with HuffPost Live, Munn recalls that she was "so obsessed with hanging out with and talking to" Mulaney at Meyers' wedding. She even said that she attempted to keep in touch with him after the event but that "he never emailed back."


Any evidence of their friendship or relationship was virtually non-existent until December 2020, after news had broken that Mulaney would be returning to rehab. The "X-Men: Apocalypse" actress joined the many celebrities – including Patton Oswalt, Kristen Johnston, and Ron Funches — who took to social media and wished Mulaney well in his recovery (via People). Munn tweeted in support of the comedian: "Sending SO MUCH love and support to John Mulaney. You got this."

John Mulaney and Olivia Munn went public soon after news of his divorce

John Mulaney and ex-wife Anna Marie Tendler were married in 2014 after meeting in Martha's Vineyard in the late 2000s (via Insider). Their relationship was the gift that kept on giving for Mulaney fans, as Tendler was mentioned many times in Mulaney's stand-up specials, and her Instagram often featured their dog Petunia. When Mulaney checked into rehab, fans went wild with speculation after Tendler removed the name Mulaney from her Instagram profile as well as all photos of her husband from her page (via Cheat Sheet).


The official confirmation of the couple's divorce came in the spring of 2021, when Tendler said through a spokesperson, "I am heartbroken that John has decided to end our marriage. I wish him support and success as he continues his recovery" (via Bustle). While Mulaney did not comment on the divorce, a representative for him did, saying, "John will not have any further comment as he continues to focus on his recovery and getting back to work." In May 2021, a source told People that Mulaney had already moved on with Munn after the two met at church, saying, "this is very new, they're taking it slowly."

Things heated up before the pregnancy announcement

While John Mulaney and Olivia Munn did not publicly address the nature of their relationship until Mulaney made his "Late Night" appearance, sources confirmed it throughout the summer. In June 2021, just one month after Mulaney and Tendler's divorce was confirmed, Munn and Mulaney were spotted laughing together on a lunch date at Rick's Drive In & Out in Los Angeles (via Bustle). Munn was also seen leaving Mulaney's house one morning later that month in leggings and an oversized sweatshirt.


Sources hinted to "Us Weekly" that things may be more serious than they appeared, saying things like "Olivia is so smitten" and "John thinks Olivia is really smart and she makes him laugh too." The seriousness of the relationship was finally confirmed in September 2021 when Mulaney revealed on "Late Night" that he and Munn would be having a baby together, and a source close to the two said that "they couldn't be happier."
