Rose Byrne and Bobby Cannavale are in no rush to walk down the hall. The two, who have been together since 2012, are the parents of their children Rocco, 5, and Rafa, 3. Although they have thought about becoming husband and wife, they have not managed to do so.
“I keep saying, ‘Let’s do it, let’s do it.’ And then, you know, you have a baby, and then, oh, there’s another baby, ”the 41-year-old actress shared in an interview with Sydney morning herald. “It was something like that for us.”
“I love weddings and I know the people [for whom] it’s something important, and I totally respect it, “he continued.” I guess for us it’s been, we didn’t, we will, so – no! Pandemic.”
Byrne, 41, and Cannavale, 51, meanwhile, are known to keep their personal lives private. The actor was previously married to actress and screenwriter Jenny Lumet, with whom he shares his 26-year-old son Jake. From time to time, the couple will share photos of each other on their social media.
Meanwhile, in November, Cannavale appeared on The Late Late Show with James Corden where the host asked why he referred to Byrne as his “wife” when they are not married.
“To be honest, I haven’t found a better word for that. The boyfriend / girlfriend feels too young, the couple feels too clinical,” she said. “You know, my ‘partner’? That feels weird. So it’s easier. People don’t ask questions when you say, ‘She’s my wife.’
James Corden then joked that when they are older “I think it’s really cool to call each other ‘girlfriend and boyfriend’ again. Then I think it will come back.”
“Imagine, I’ll be 90 and she’ll say, ‘This is my 90-year-old boyfriend,’ by the way, ‘Bobby.’ Have you ever seen a 90 year old Bobby? Is hot! Cannavale joked.
