Rumors of a relationship between pop star Sabrina Carpenter and Saltburn actor Barry Keoghan have been circulating since late 2023, though neither party has confirmed anything yet.
Keoghan recently split from Alyson Kierans, a dental nurse and orthodontic therapist, with whom he shares a son named Brando, born in August 2022. The couple broke up in July 2023 after two and a half years together. A source told The Sun that the former couple are “determined to do the best for their son....They’ve grown apart over recent months and things have finally come to a head….As far as she’s concerned, it’s over.”
As for Carpenter, she was last romantically linked to Shawn Mendes in early 2023.
It was suspected that the Irish actor would make his first public appearance with Carpenter at the Golden Globes in January 2024, but the two wound up walking separately. That doesn’t mean they’ve stopped seeing each other, though. Here’s Carpenter and Keoghan’s complete relationship timeline so far.

It was suspected the new couple might attend the Golden Globes together. A source claimed in The Sun that the Eternals star gave Kierans a heads up about his planned relationship reveal.
“Barry thought it was best that Alyson was the first to know about him and Sabrina so she wouldn’t be hurt if she found out on social media,” the source alleged. “He is spending a lot of time in the States and has invited Sabrina to be his ‘plus one’ at the Golden Globes. Alyson and Barry still communicate for the sake of Brando, and he has been open about his new relationship.”
But they were again photographed separately on the red carpet.

Carpenter was similarly coy when she made an appearance on Nova's Smallzy's Surgery on February 22. The show's host, Smallzy, otherwise known as Kent Small, asked Carpenter if she'd seen Saltburn, Keoghan's popular movie.
“You know, I have,” she replied.
Smallzy pushed the question, asking, “Did you love it?”
Carpenter replied, “Oh, I loved it. Such a good movie... Anyways, I gotta go to the bathroom.”
They then moved on to other topics.

On Friday, February 24, Carpenter shared some clips and pics from her duet with Taylor Swift in Sydney, Australia, where she's the opening act for the Eras Tour. A weather related issue delayed the show recently, meaning Carpenter couldn't perform, but Swift invited her on stage to sing a mashup of “White Horse” and “Coney Island,” which thrilled the younger pop star.
“9 year old Sabrina singing ‘White Horse’ would never see this sh-t coming!” Carpenter wrote in the caption of her post. “I love you so so so dearly Taylor. Always have always will.”
In the comments, Keoghan left a queen emoji in support.
