Here’s everything to know about their relationship.
They went Instagram official in September 2019
After attending the Creative Arts Emmy Awards together in 2019, Erskine and Angarano went public with their romance on Instagram as they both posted sweet tributes to each other.
Alongside a selfie of them sitting near each other during the ceremony, the Sky High alum captioned a photo of him and Erskine, “ohhh look who it is sitting right behind me completely randomly at an awards show in which we were both nominated who i also happen to be in love with 😭❤️💨.”
Meanwhile, the Mr. & Mrs. Smith star shared the same photo with the caption, “Look who was sitting right in front of me. I ❤️ you.”
That same month, they kept the public appearances coming as they stepped out at various award show parties and eventually accompanied each other to the 2019 Emmys, which Angarano shared a photo of on Instagram.
They previously shared the screen on PEN15
The following year, Angarano made a guest appearance on Erskine’s hit series PEN15, in which she and her costar Anna Konkle play 13-year-old versions of themselves. Angarano appeared in two episodes as a character named Greg who directs Erskine’s character’s school play.
They announced they were expecting and engaged at the same time
In November 2020, Erskine and Angarano made the surprise announcement that they were engaged and expecting their first child together. Alongside a photo of him cradling Erksine’s bump, Angarano wrote on Instagram, "And then there were 3... also, we're engaged.”
During an interview with Vogue published in May 2021, Erskine shared more details about her pregnancy, which occurred around the same time as her PEN15 costar and co-creator Konkle.
“I found out at Michael’s parents house in late July,” Erskine told the publication. "I had told [Konkle] that Michael and I were going to start trying and then told her in person, socially distanced at a park, and then told all our friends in the ocean as a wave overtook us—again, socially distanced at the beach. It was very dramatic.”
They welcomed their first child in May 2021
Not long after her interview with Vogue, Erskine gave birth to a baby boy named Leon Frederick in May 2021. After Vogue's interview was published, Konkle called Erskine an "amazing mama" as she wished her costar a happy birthday.
Angarano applauded Erskine on being a great mother to their son as her hit series PEN15 released its final season. “you are incredible... as an actor, a writer, a showrunner, a director, and a mom,” he captioned a photo of the actress with their newborn in her trailer. “we love you and are so grateful for you in our lives (i’m speaking on mine and Leon’s behalf).”
They’re starring in a new movie together
After briefly sharing the small screen together on PEN15, the two are set to share the silver screen in an upcoming project titled Sacremento. The road-trip comedy was first announced April 2023 and will star Angarano, Erskine, Michael Cera and Kristen Stewart, the latter of whom dated Angarano from 2005 to 2009. In addition to starring, Angarano is also directing the feature and co-wrote the script with Chris Smith.
Maya Erskine and Michael Angarano privately got married
Though the couple hasn’t publicly revealed when they got married, Erskine openly referred to Angarano as her husband during various press interviews for her series Mr. and Mrs. Smith in February 2024.
While appearing on the Today show, both Erskine and her costar Donald Glover shared how their respective marriages offscreen played a role in developing their characters’ onscreen marriage. Glover explained, “There’s a lot of little bits in it that I was like, ‘This is what me and my wife do. And you were like, ‘Yeah, me and my husband kinda…’”
