Who Is Haley Bennett’s Partner? Inside Her Personal Life
Girl on the Train star Haley Bennett is in a relationship with director Joe Wright.
The news of the two getting together came out in January 2018, shortly after he split with his wife, sitarist Anoushka Shankar.
Bennett and her partner have since welcomed a daughter together.
She has also shared much of their life together on Instagram and also talked about how she wants to raise their child.

Wright ended his seven-year marriage with Shankar to be together with Bennett.
But while the news of the two becoming romantic partners came out in January 2018, they kept their relationship under wraps until September of the same year.
Bennett made a post about her partner for the first time in September 2018. She uploaded a picture of herself and Wright sharing a kiss.

“Cling to me, Joe, my bliss,” she captioned the post.
Welcomed Daughter with Partner
Since her first post about her relationship with Wright, she has made many more. Another thing she frequently shared about on her Instagram was her pregnancy.
It was first revealed that Wright and Bennett were expecting a child together in October 2018.
Page Six reported their baby was due in Winter, and that the actress was six months along at the time.
In November 2018, she posted several pictures of herself showing her baby bump, including one where she is standing below a sign that reads “bump.”

She expressed her and Wright’s excitement about the child they were going to welcome together.
“It’s been an honor and a joy to be the vessel of this soul waiting to emerge,” she wrote. “We can’t wait to meet this divine creature, made with pure love. And introduce VWW to friends and family.”
Bennett referred to their unborn child as VWW in several more posts. However, the pair only revealed the name of their daughter to be Virginia Willow Wright much later.
Virginia was born on December 27, 2018, in Brooklyn Heights. Bennett confirmed the birth of their child on January 1, 2019, by posting a picture of herself and her newborn on a rocking chair.
Anoushka Shankar and Ex-husband Joe Wright
Before Wright got together with Bennett, he was married to sitarist Anoushka Shankar, whom he wed on September 26, 2010.
Less than a year after their marriage, Shankar and her husband welcomed their first child together, son Zubin Shankar Wright, in February 2011.
Their family of three grew larger in February 2015 when Shankar gave birth to her and Wright’s second son, Mohan Shankar Wright.
Shankar and her husband celebrated their seven-year anniversary on September 26, 2017. She marked the occasion with an Instagram post.
“I love you, Joe,” she wrote in the captions. “I love the life we have built and are building together.”
Unfortunately, their relationship didn’t last much longer.
Just days after the news of Wright getting together with Bennett came out, she made a post where she hinted at her failed relationship with her husband.
