Congratulations are in order for Paul Mescal and Phoebe Bridgers, who, according to rumors, has been engaged.
In a profile on Mescal that was published on November 6 in The Guardian, the news about the actor, who is 26 years old, and the musician, who is 28 years old, was mentioned.
He shared that he was not prepared for the focus he obtained when the series aired, and he later made the decision to quit social media after dealing with the immediate criticism that arrived after starring in the popular Hulu series “Normal People.” Mescal, who stars in the new film “Aftersun,” spoke about dealing with the immediate scrutiny that arrived after starring in “Normal People.”
In an interview with the journal, he stated, “I just don’t believe it’s that useful for people to see, like, literally you.” “I believed that my only options were to either get off the bus now or stay on it, and I chose to get off.” It’s possible that ten years from now I’ll be sorry that I deleted all of my social media accounts, but, hey, it is what it is.
Before he deactivated his account, he and Bridgers engaged in some playful banter across many social media platforms, including Twitter and Instagram.
A journalist for the Guardian named Aaron Hicklin stated, in reference to those communications, “The pair are now engaged.” (Editor’s note: The Guardian has revised its story to read, “the pair are reported to be engaged.” TODAY has reached out to Mescal and Bridgers for comment.)
After the singer of “Motion Sickness” mentioned on Twitter in May 2020 that she was watching “Normal People,” Mescal read her message and jokingly responded, “I’m officially d.e.a.d.” This led to the beginning of their romantic relationship.
A few weeks later, while each was holding an Instagram Live event for Wonderland magazine, they ended up talking to each other.
It wasn’t until he gave an interview to GQ in November 2020 that he finally revealed the identity of his enigmatic lover.
Having someone to lean on during such a crazy, crazy time has proven to be of immeasurable value. When asked about it at the time, he stated, “Really, I don’t know where I’d be without her.”
The following month, Mescal made an appearance as the main character in the music video for “Savior Complex,” which was performed by Bridgers.
After a year of fans analyzing their interactions, Bridgers and Mescal’s relationship became “Instagram official” in December of last year when she posted a lovely selfie of them hugging one other. This was followed by a year of fans analyzing their every move.
The actor appeared to be giving her a peck on the cheek as she posed for the shot, although the singer did not add a caption to the photograph.
In May, the two of them were seen together at the Met Gala.
Following the publication of the new profile on Mescal in the Guardian, supporters took to social media to celebrate the happy pair.
One Twitter user wrote: “No because Phoebe Bridgers watched average people, publicly thirsted over Paul Mescal, and is now engaged to him, and for that, she is my hero.”
Someone else expressed their shock by saying, “I can’t believe we all witnessed Phoebe Bridgers and Paul Mescal’s first date on IG Live, and now they’re getting married.”
