Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons' Relationship Timeline
Kirsten Dunst, who welcomed her second child this year with her longtime partner Jesse Plemons, has been together with Plemons since they first met in 2015.
But the On Becoming a God in Central Florida star isn't very open about her relationship in public, because of which the details about her ideal relationship remain under wraps. That being said, there is still some information about her love life, which is enough to manifest how the two have gone about their romance over the years.
Here's Dunst and her potential husband's relationship timeline, starting from their first meet to the birth of the couple's second child.
2015: Kirsten Dunst and Jesse Plemons Met on the Set of ‘Fargo’
In 2015, when Dunst and Plemons were filming for the second season of the FX series Fargo, they came across each other. On the show, they portrayed the characters of Peggy and Ed, who were married high-school sweethearts.
According to reports, the couple hit it off immediately, as both of them loved each other's company. Speaking at PaleyFest in 2015, the Friday Night Lights actor talked about working with Dunst, saying, "It was a gift."
"I loved Kirsten's work for a long time, and I was really excited once I'd met her, and she's a great person, and we're both actors that just...have fun with the material."
2016: Kirsten Dunst Broke up with Her Then-Boyfriend
The 39-year-old actress was in a relationship with her then-boyfriend Garrett Hedlund for over 4 years when he met her now-partner. But not long after she met Plemons, she broke up with Hedlund circa April 2016.
"They have very different personalities and weren’t on the same page when it came to their future," a source told People, implying her present partner wasn't the reason behind her split with her ex-partner. "Their relationship has been very rocky for a while, so the breakup is actually a relief for them."
2017: The Duo Got Engaged
In 2016, after Dunst broke up with her ex-boyfriend, she officially started dating Plemons. She was even snapped kissing him during an event in June that year.
That didn't stop there, as the couple secretly got engaged in January 2017. Page Six, the publication which was first to report the news, stated that they got engaged over Golden Globes weekend.
Later in June, Dunst confirmed the engagement herself during her appearance on The Tonight Show Starring Jimmy Fallon. "I was a little sick when he did it, which was funny. But that's good, in sickness and in health, so that works," she said when Fallon asked how the proposal went.
2018: Kirsten Dunst Announced She Was Pregnant with Jesse Plemons’s Baby
In January 2018, Dunst revealed she was pregnant with Plemon's baby during an ad campaign for Rodarte's latest collection. And yes, they were yet to get married officially.
The couple eventually welcomed their first child, a son named Ennis Howard Plemons, on May 8, 2018.
2021: The Couple's Second Child
Fast forward to 2021, and the couple is now the parents of two children. In between, the duo talked about their wedding plans, cleared rumors of them being already married, and spent time in Australia during quarantine.
Coming back to their second child, the couple's second child, reportedly born in May this year, is a son, whom Dunst and Plemons have named James Robert.
