“From Dating to Marriage: Greta Gerwig and Noah Baumbach’s Journey of Love”

A spokeswoman for the 40-year-old Barbie director Greta Gerwig and her longterm partner Noah Baumbach confirmed their marriage to PEOPLE.

The two wed at New York City Hall, a source told PEOPLE.

2011 saw the duo start dating after they first connected while making the 2010 film Greenberg.

The news follows a hectic year for the couple, who co-wrote the Barbie screenplay and revealed in a July interview with Elle UK that they had secretly had a second son.

“The tiny guy is sound asleep all night long. However, I continue to wake up every hour to ninety minutes and simply hover. You can’t help but stare at that infant. I’m therefore kind of in a twilight state,” the Lady Bird filmmaker admitted to the publication.

The latest member of the family was welcomed in March 2019 along with Harold Ralph Gerwig Baumbach, the couple’s first child together. Baumbach, 54, discussed with Vogue in December of that year why he likes working with his now-wife.

“I believe that writing for us is enjoyable because it permeates everything. A few months later, I’m viewing her movie that I showed her a snippet of. It’s a very wonderful thing to see someone you love do something, and to love what they make, without sounding sickeningly joyful. Without saying “wonderful a lot,” I don’t know how else to put it,” he told the site.

Both received separate Oscar nominations in the same year, 2020. Baumbach’s film Marriage Story received nominations for Best Picture and Best Original Screenplay, while Gerwig’s Little Women, which she also directed, received nominations for Best Adapted Screenplay.

In an interview with ABC’s Tamron Hall during their 2020 Academy Awards red carpet walk, Baumbach said that Gerwig has improved both him as a writer and as a person.

“I constantly want to impress her when we write together. I think I write better now that I’m putting in more effort, and I want her to be impressed,” he remarked.
Baumbach discussed his reluctance to work on Barbie in an October Q&A with Gerwig, but eventually revealed that it turned out to be 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 Variety.
