Greta Gerwig and her longtime partner, Noah Baumbach, are married, a representative for the Barbie director, 40, confirmed to PEOPLE. A source told PEOPLE that the two got married at New York City Hall. The couple first met while filming the 2010 movie Greenberg and began dating in 2011.
The news comes after a busy year for the couple who co-wrote the Barbie screenplay and announced that they quietly welcomed a second son in an interview with Elle UK published in July.
“The little guy is sleeping through the night. But I’m still doing that thing where I wake up, every hour to 90 minutes, and just hover. You just keep wanting to look at that baby. So I’m slightly in a twilight state,” the Lady Bird director told the outlet.
The new addition joined the couple’s first baby together, son Harold Ralph Gerwig Baumbach, whom they welcomed in March 2019. That December, Baumbach, 54, spoke to Vogue about why he enjoys working alongside his now wife.
“I think the pleasure of writing for us is that it seeps into everything. I’d show her a cut of my movie, and then a few months later, I’m watching her movie. I don’t want to sound sickeningly happy, but it’s a truly great thing to watch someone you love make something and love the thing they make. I don’t know how else to say it without saying great a lot,” he told the outlet.
In 2020, both were individually nominated for Oscars in the same year. While Baumbach was nominated for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay for his film Marriage Story, Gerwig was nominated for Best Adapted Screenplay for Little Women, which she also directed.
While walking the red carpet together at the 2020 Academy Awards, Baumbach told ABC’s Tamron Hall that Gerwig had made him a “better person and a better writer.”
“When we write together, I’m always trying to impress her. I feel like I write better because I work at it harder, I want her to be impressed,” he said. In a Q&A with Gerwig in October, Baumbach opened up about how he hesitated to work on Barbie but it later became the “best thing we’ve ever written.”
“I know enough always just to follow what Greta says, so even in my bellyaching and revolting, I kind of knew, ‘Well if she really believes it, then there’s something there,'” he said, according to Variety.
