John Mulaney & his pregnant GF probably won’t be together ‘in a year’s time’

2014 FOX Summer TCA All Star Party

I suppose it’s the months-long messiness that people are fascinated with. John Mulaney has had a chaotic year: in-patient rehab, out-patient rehab, launching a new stand-up show based on his sobriety, leaving his wife Anna-Marie Tendler, likely cheating on Tendler, making his jumpoff his official girlfriend and impregnating that same girlfriend. Now rumors abound that John Mulaney and his pregnant girlfriend have broken up. There’s been no denial or confirmation thus far, but Us Weekly is trying to do something:

An unknown future. John Mulaney and Olivia Munn are expecting their first child together amid a whirlwind romance, but an insider tells Us Weekly that their relationship faces much “uncertainty.”

“This has been an imperfect relationship from the start,” the source exclusively tells Us. The whirlwind relationship has 41-year-old Munn’s inner circle concerned that this romance might be over as fast as it started. “Even though Olivia’s going to be a wonderful mother and has great support behind her, Olivia’s friends just don’t see these two being a couple in a year’s time,” the source notes.

Their loved ones believe the new couple will absolutely “make great parents” to their little bundle of joy, but “nobody knows yet if they’re going to do that together or apart.”

Even Munn and Mulaney are unsure. Us confirmed their romance in May, and the Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse actor announced that he and Munn were having a baby in September. The romance has been going so fast that they haven’t had to time to map out their lives together.

“Olivia and John still have to decide what kind of future they’re going to have together, if any,” the insider explains. “It’s a time of uncertainty, for both of them.” The parents-to-be “are a long way from deciding and locking in what their relationship is going to be going forward.”

Deep sigh… I just realized that she is 41 years old. I suspect that’s why there was no real planning for the future with this pregnancy – as soon as she got pregnant, she was probably just like “okay, this is probably my last shot at this, why not.” Honestly, that’s not the worst energy to have – she’ll be fine either way, if he wants to stick around, God bless, and if he wants to go, she and the baby will be fine. Now… he will be a mess either way. He left his wife for his jumpoff and knocked up said jumpoff two seconds after leaving rehab. His public image is taking a huge hit with all of this and his fans whining about “parasocial relationships” isn’t working. He invited us into his life and his marriage and he blew it all up. And then abandoned his pregnant jumpoff.

    Ah, here is her attempt at a spin.

    • Katherine says:

      But wouldn’t it be hilarious if she dumped him? Kaiser, next, google her net worth vs his;) I mean, I hope he gets better, lessons learnt, and all.

    • Wiglet Watcher says:

      We’ve only heard her side.
      My guess is John really wanted this to be a fling and she wanted the most she could get.
      She will he set on child support and his connections for the sake of their child. She will be fine.
      He will be terrible for all the reasons mentioned, but now also because of his baby. He had valid concerns about being a parent and now he has to overcome those and battle his addictions… my god

      • Tourmaline says:

        John shoulda wrapped up his thing if he just wanted it to be a fling. I mean she’s not some sperm stealing siren. Infantilism of grown adult man on aisle three.

      • Jan90067 says:

        I agree with Tourmaline. He has said he didn’t want kids ever. He should’ve wrapped it up or snipped. Easy.

        Now SHE on the other hand… no bc, raw-dogging… how could any woman *not* think pregnancy *could* be an outcome? And before you come at me, yes, I know bc can fail, but my gut tells me not in *this* case. She has been after him for AGES.

        Note: I had to look up “parasocial relationship” (I feel older every day! lol) and I can see this. She *did* start stalking him in 2015. She kept stalking him *knowing* he was married. It’s a messy, messy, situation any way you look at it.

        They are both messed up. I feel for that baby; hope it has great relatives and a damned wonderful nanny!

      • whatWHAT? says:

        Tourmaline…THANK YOU.

        I get so tired of hearing “she trapped him with a kid”.


        (yes I know condoms aren’t 100% but still)

        the number of unplanned pregnancies in Hollywood makes me cringe. do NONE of them practice safe sex? I mean, pregnancy is one thing but do they not worry about STDs?!!! sheesh.

      • BothSidesNow says:

        @ whatWHAT?, @ Tourmline, you guys are so spot on!! I could not imagine how it’s all of the fault of OM when he should have been of the mind set to ensure he never fathered any children. Mulvaney should have been “no glove, no love” OR had a vasectomy!! It’s not that hard, two little snips, but this is the outcome of 2 consenting adults!

        I agree that given the fact that there are so many transmittable STD’s, I would stay clearly far from having any unprotected sex! A GF of mine, back in the ‘90’s contracted something serious, I wish I could remember from what, from unprotected sex. She will have to live with this diagnosis for the rest of her life.

      • Moxylady says:

        You know what’s fun? Anna had her tubes tied because John didn’t want kids. They obviously discussed it and chose to go this route- she might have wanted kids but wanted him more- who knows. But then he can’t even wear a flipping condom. What an absolute POS.

      • Christine says:

        Thank you, Tourmline! As a single mom with no coparent, I appreciate every bit of you.

  2. Silver Charm says:

    AnnaMarie Tendler is on TikTok and she’s delightful.

    • OriginalLala says:

      she really is! The silver lining in this mess is people discovering the light that is Anna Marie!

    • Scout says:

      And that is what is really hurting him. The wife he dumped is happy and successful so it makes him look like a cad and a loser for leaving such a gem.

      And now with the pregnancy and dumping #2 he’s really damaging his image bec how much of his prior success was the guidance and intelligence of his wife? And the actions we see now from him are AFTER he’s cleaned up? Ugh.

  3. TIFFANY says:

    Yeah, he will be fine too. Even if his career doesn’t rehab, he will never be couch surfing. He is from a stupid wealthy family who seems like they have no cut him off.

    • Katherine says:

      Yep, I also think he’ll be fine and may even come out of this more famous, with a more bad boy image and since he tried to star in a TV series once, maybe he’ll have a better shot at it now…. His fanbase is definitely on his side. It’s not like he’s going to completely abandon the baby. They’ll consciously uncouple or something and that’ll be it.

  4. jbyrdku says:

    Olivia’s been interested in this guy for years. I’m telling you, it was an accidental
    (*cough*on-purpose*cough*) pregnancy. Either way, I think she got what she wanted. I feel bad for the kid and for the wife that he dumped.

    • Jennifer says:

      Seconded on the pregnancy.

    • Le Nugget says:

      This. If she wanted to be a mother so badly, she could have easily used a sperm donor service or even co-parented with a friend. I really doubt she was thinking, “Who would be a good, stable father for my child?” because if that were the case, he would have not be first choice.
      As an aside, I went to medical school with one of OM’s cousins (mom’s side I think). He was a great guy and didn’t spill too much tea but he did not have the nicest things to say about her, even as a family member.

      • MarcelMarcel says:

        If he didn’t want to be a father so badly he could have used condom or had a vasectomy. It takes two people to create a baby. I get why Munn is unpopular here and yeah there are lots of ways to have a baby. But the idea that she just tricked him and he isn’t responsible for his choices is sexist.

    • TMoney says:

      @ jbyrdku ,

      I TOTALLY agree…

      • Le Nugget says:

        1) No one on here is saying that JM is not responsible as well. However, given that single parenthood has infinitely more ramifications for the mother in most cases (socially, physically, financially, career-wise, etc.) I would be lying if I didn’t say I felt that myself as a woman feel more of a need to be responsible for preventing pregnancy when having consensual intercourse. If that is sexist, then so be it.
        2) I know that social activism and grandstanding are really popular nowadays, so since we are doing it, keep in mind that it is ALSO sexist to assume that a woman can’t be manipulative and deceptive in order to get things that she wants. 🤷‍♀️

    • Ann says:

      I have no doubt she got pregnant intentionally. That doesn’t exonerate him at all; he has said he doesn’t want kids, so he should have worn a condom, but his was an act of negligence while hers was purposeful. There’s a difference.

      She’ll be fine financially. I assume she wants the child and I’ll give her the benefit of the doubt about her parenting. Hopefully she’ll be a good mother, and hopefully he’ll be a good father whether they are together or not. You know, to the extent a guy who always said he didn’t want kids can be a good father. Maybe he’ll find it surprisingly rewarding. One can hope.

  5. cassandra says:

    I wonder who came up with the idea for the Seth Myers interview? If it was his publicist, woof what a bad call.

    Imagine if they hadn’t done the baby mama roll out last month

    • Jennifer says:

      I love Seth and I’m sure he wanted to support his friend, but….all of that was uncomfortable.

  6. LillyfromLillooet says:

    When a surprise pregnancy arrives, there is the guy will snap to and step up.

    Then there is guy who runs away.

    This damage control article is window dressing, it sounds like the gf is trying for spin control.

    Mulaney is acting like utter garbage.

    • Ann says:

      To be fair, he has been VERY public about not wanting children. She knew that when she got together with him, she knew it when she got pregnant and chose to have the child. And even if they are not together as a couple, he can still be part of the kid’s life. My sister and her ex husband co-parented their daughters very well, and it was better for everyone that they not stay together “for the kids.” We don’t know all the details. Mulaney has been a train wreck lately but she’s no saint.

      • Tiffany :) says:

        But if he REALLY didn’t want children….there are plenty of ways to not create one! I don’t feel sorry for him 1 bit for not addressing birth control himself.

        I don’t think Munn is a good person, but the pregnancy is on both of them.

  7. MarcelMarcel says:

    I mean it was a wildly different situation… but my biological father left before I was born and I’m fine. My mama made me feel very loved, was very careful to not complain about him to me and she had a strong support network of loving womxn. They all made me feel so loved.
    As an adult I can see how hard she worked and the sacrifices she made.
    I hope Munn’s child has a similar experience.
    And I hope that Anna Marie Tendler is out there living her best life.

    • Amy T says:

      What a great mom! You are doubly lucky – to have had that kind of fortune and to appreciate it.

      Here’s hoping for that kind out outcome here….

      • MarcelMarcel says:

        Aww thank you, yeah my mum is the best. Because of her graciousness I was able to meet him in my late teens and form my own opinion.
        Anyways I have a relationship with him now but I always be a Mama’s girl.
        I agree that being able to appreciate things makes me lucky. I think having gratitude is a wonderful gift from the divine. Life is too short to not recognise how wonderful this universe is.

  8. Kaye says:

    She is pretty now – maybe even beautiful – but it’s still hard for me to believe that she ditched her earlier appearance when she had freckles and sparkly eyes and was just so uniquely cute.

    • Erin says:

      I felt she was gorgeous and unique before. Now she just looks so fake and like every other real housewife out there

    • molly says:

      I loved her on Attack of the Show. She was sharp and funny and the perfect contrast to all the vapid blonde Barbies of the mid-00s. Now she’s just as plastic and sullen as the rest. Total shame.

      • whatWHAT? says:

        ugh. that’s where I saw her first and developed my (initial) dislike (which has become a loathing).

        she was so, SO try hard on that show.

        “look at me, I’m a hot nerd girl. did I mention what a nerd I am? and that I’m hot? BTW, I’m totally a nerd but I’m also hot.”

        so tiresome.

    • whatWHAT? says:

      nah, her veneers are too big. it’s a mistake that a LOT of people make.

  9. Digital Unicorn says:

    I really don’t get his appeal – his comedy is ok but he seems meh!

  10. Mina_Esq says:

    Is the next logical step for him to try to get back together with his wife? Not that she would take him back, but I’m trying to figure out into which of the usual hot mess categories he will fall.

    • OriginalLala says:

      I’m thinking he will soon step out with a series of barely legal ladies…take a page out of the classic messy middle aged man’s playbook?

      • Silver Charm says:

        He just needs to link up with Jeremy Renner and Taika Watiti to mentor him on the ways of the Hollywood midlife crisis.

    • Merricat says:

      I seriously doubt he would try to reconcile with his ex.

      • Arpeggi says:

        Same. I don’t think he left his wife FOR the (ex?)gf. Those 2 things can be unrelated while happening simultaneously. He’ll date around, which was probably his initial plan, but I don’t think he’ll try to reconcile. He should also definitely get snipped

    • Natters says:

      Supposedly he is with an A list celebrity now. I want to know who is stupid enough to want to be involved in his train wreck of a life.

      • TEALIEF says:

        The next logical and responsible step for him is to schedule an appointment with a urologist to get a vasectomy.  All kidding aside, and no pun intended. If he has never wanted children, do what’s necessary to ensure this doesn’t happen again. This child is coming into this already difficult world on a tide of messiness and chaos.

  11. Jais says:

    I’m confused. All the time I’m reading comments here that deuxmoi is not to be trusted. But as soon as the posts about the split went up, everyone believed them. I get that this couple seems unlikely to last either way, but why was a deuxmoi post given so much weight?

    • LillyfromLillooet says:

      1. It was two sources and two separate posts, not one
      2. I don’t recall any recent sightings of this couple
      3. The final clou, as they say, is this morning’s US magazine article, the gf’s outlet of choice, trying to spin a state of not being together. If they were together, this is not the article we’d be reading.
      4. I think you have a point in that everyone was thinking these two were doomed and jumped on affirming information.

      • Jais says:

        Thanks for your response @lillyfromlillooet! You laid out the evidence well, and taken together, it’s very likely they’re not together. Like you said, it was point 4, people immediately believing the deuxmoi post that had me confused. Now, I see it was 2 diff posts with 2 diff sources. Sometimes, it just feels like people accept or reject deuxmoi posts depending on what they want to believe. That’s just a conclusion based on reading comments here though so I’m not that well-informed.

      • Lorelei says:

        @Jais I often feel very guilty of doing the same thing. The DM (for example) is trash, and pretty much everything they’ve ever said about H&M are lies. So we’ve established that it’s not a credible publication.

        But then when they print something like the “CopyKate” article from last week, I have no problem reading it, sharing screenshots, etc.

        I know how stupid and hypocritical this is but I can’t help it!

    • milliemollie says:

      Deuxmoi seems to have a source from their circles. A lot of people send in random bs, but quite a few blinds that fitted Mulaney and Voldemort turned out to be true.

      • Silver Charm says:

        @Milliemolly. There is no source. Those “tips” are anonymous and can’t be followed up on. Anyone can submit to DM and she’ll just publish it.

  12. Stephanie says:

    Of all the comedians I follow, I would never have thought Mulaney would end up in the gossip blogs for having a messy life. Maybe the beginning of a midlife crisis? Either way, I hope he stays sober and this baby has a good upbringing. If it wasn’t for the fact these two are bringing a life into the world, I’d probably be more into this.

  13. Merricat says:

    I am surprised by the energy invested in this. He’s an addict, and what he’s done in his personal life is about average in terms of the life of an entertainer with (or without) addiction problems. Oh, he fooled you into thinking he was a perfect spouse? So did lots of entertainers before, during, and after him, men and women.
    The difference is social media reveals all the dirty details of the life of humans.

    • Tourmaline says:

      I think a lot of people seemed very invested in JM’s marriage, their dog, their childfree status and are acting like JM broke a solemn vow to them personally or in some cases that OM smashed their dream. It’s interesting.

  14. CidyKitty(CidySmiley) says:

    All I know is I’m living for AMT’s tiktok and she seems lighter without him. I forsee a future in which he starts dating younger and younger, and eventually gets a back tattoo of a Phoenix.

  15. Annie says:

    This is why you don’t pine for a guy for years and put him on a pedestal. Olivia didn’t even know him and she did everything she could to be with him. It’s better to try to get to know someone first. And please don’t attempt having a relationship with them when they’re in rehab or out of rehab.

  16. Laura-Lee MacDonald says:

    I love John Mulaney’s stand up and I am bizarrely emotionally invested in his recovery. I dislike the pregnant person involved a great deal. I’m in my 40’s. If I wanted a(nother) baby, there are ways of accomplishing that without dragging someone else who is not interested in being parent into it. John’s been a total heel, and I just hope that kid is going to be okay.

  17. Tiffany :) says:

    All this talk about planning for the future, and it makes me think of AA and “one day at a time” mantra. It might be overwhelming for him to think of his sobriety long-term, and not in short manageable goals. Baby was not a good idea, I really worry for them.

  18. why? says:

    Romance, whirlwind romance, whirlwind relationship? She had an affair with a married man who was struggling with a drug addiction and was cheating with his fans. Based on the US Weekly article, it doesn’t sound like she is fine with the way that their “romance” is going. She wants the ex-wife and world to know that she won! I wouldn’t be surprised if she tries to save face by doing a nursery, pregnancy, or hospital photoshoot or set up some sort of photo-op with “her”(she is sharing him with other woman and seems to be fine with that) boyfriend

  19. Scout says:

    Are we sure this guy was clean when he dated her? Because knocking up a casual fling sounds more like a drunken drug-fueled night than a just-got-out-of-rehab let’s have dinner, thing.

    • ElleV says:

      just because he’s clean doesn’t mean he’ll be emotionally stable or responsible – if anything I’d assume things would be way less stable for the first while when the usual coping mechanisms aren’t an option

  20. Lila says:

    Aside from the fact that it blew up faster than expected, no surprises with this one. I hope for JM’s sake, he can stay sober, and for baby’s sake that OM both has a good support system, and both parents have the ability to keep interactions civil and healthy.

    At least JM’s jump off wasn’t Alice Evans…

    • sunny says:

      This. I hope all parties involved can stay healthy and that OM has support during her pregnancy and that they can act in the best interests of the child they are bringing into this mess.

  21. Jules says:

    team baby, coming into this world with these two dimwits as parents.

  22. Isa says:

    Everyone keeps pointing out this is probably her last chance at having a baby, but if your clock is ticking why even look at someone fresh out of a relationship and rehab that has made it abundantly clear that he didn’t want kids?

    • ElleV says:

      A few things:

      – If you’re someone who has trouble being emotionally available, going after someone who is married, taken or otherwise emotionally unavailable probably feels safer – in the same way, him not wanting kids may make the situation feel more in her control
      – Men who are married or otherwise taken may seem more desirable/vetted than a random single dude even tho the fact they’re cheating totally undermines that
      – The fantasy/power trip of “winning” or “changing” a person
      – She’s a fan/had a longtime crush and he seems to have a pattern of exploiting those parasocial relationships for easy hookups
      – And never discount plain ignorance and instant gratification – people are often sloppy with birth control who should know better but once they’re preg they roll with it

      PS – i think they’re both not nice people but I also feel sad for both of them because it seems like they’re both chasing misery

    • ExpatInTheUK says:

      She’s been interested in him for many years now. Her feelings likely overrode her best judgement.

      • ElleV says:

        @expatintheuk – I’m not sure this is a one-off poor judgment situation for her tho – she’s been linked with other married men/fresh splits before (Chris Pratt, Justin Theroux, Justin Timberlake) so I get the vibe she’s part of nature’s relational clean-up crew

  23. Jess says:

    If he didn’t want kids and he was so sure in that he should’ve been snipped years ago, but he’s just as responsible as Olivia for this pregnancy. Blaming the woman entirely is gross to me, especially since in my experience A LOT of men refuse condoms because god forbid their orgasm and sensation are slightly altered. I’ve even had partners ask me to not take birth control because they claimed it would “tank my sex drive”, but then say “oh you’ll get abortion if you get pregnant, right”.

    Anyway I digress, lol. John is the one who went to rehab then chose to leave his wife and quickly impregnated someone else, it’s crazy how much I liked him just a year ago now he’s just another fkng douche.

  24. FrontPorchSittin says:

    I’ve never thought he was particularly funny – there always seems to be a misogynistic undertone. I guess my radar was accurate this time.

    • Moxylady says:

      100%. There is a meanness there. I ignored it until I saw some of his work with Nick kroll then I was like – woman hating hack. But I was a huge fan. Oh well.
